What does a Chiropractor Do?
Chiropractors focus on the relationship between your body’s structure (Skeletal, Ligament and Muscle) and function (as coordinated by your nervous system) and how that relationship affects your overall preservation and restoration of health.
Many people perceive chiropractic care to be associated with the treatment of ‘back pain’ only. However, Chiropractic care is an effective treatment method for various afflictions including back pain, dysfunction, tingling, numbness, sprains and strains and headaches just to name a few.
At Total Health Brookvale our Chiropractors focus on providing soft-tissue treatment for clients on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. This involves the use of massage, exercise therapy and the selective use of adjustments.
Total Health Chiropractors are specially trained to diagnose, treat and manage injuries. Your chiropractor will use a range of diagnostic methods including skeletal imaging, observational and tactile assessments, and orthopaedic and neurological evaluation to ensure an accurate diagnosis and therefore treatment of injury.
Where necessary we also refer patients to appropriate specialists or co-manage with other health care providers, to ensure that our patients receive optimal treatment as quickly as possible.
