Promoting healthy, active and physically optimum lives

Chiropractors are evidence-based practitioners who use non-invasive healthcare methods to prevent musculoskeletal disorders and help keep our bodies functioning at their best.

Chiropractic is a health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health.

In Australia, chiropractors work in an allied health profession, focusing on manual therapies and active care techniques that treat musculoskeletal conditions. These practices include the use of spinal adjustments and soft-tissue or joint manipulation to provide relief from discomfort. Registered under the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), these practitioners help us understand the origins of associated disorders.
