Our Approach to Chiropractic

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a type of complementary medicine with various definitions in different articles and other scientific resources. According to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) definition, chiropractic is “a health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on general health”. Chiropractic treatment procedures emphasize the manual techniques, including joint adjustment and/or manipulation, with a specific focus on subluxation.

Chiropractors are experts at caring for your spine.


We now know that the spine can cause pain, dysfunction and disability in many different parts of your body - not just your back and neck. This is because your spine and nervous system are very closely connected - just look at how close our nerves lie in proximity to the bones in our spine. Our nerves carry information to and from our brain via our spinal cord such as pain, temperature and motor commands. That is why spinal problems can so often irritate or affect our nerves and cause pain and symptoms far away from the site of injury.

Chiropractors are 5 year university trained health professionals that are specially trained to assess, diagnose and treat spinal dysfunctions, in a conservative non-surgical way.

Your spine can have such a big impact on your health and wellbeing.

At Croydon Chiropractic Centre, we take a holistic, neuro-musculo-skeletal, approach to assessing and caring for your spine. This means that we use the best available scientific evidence to figure out why your body is acting the way it is - whether it is pain, balance disorders, functional limitations or other symptoms that are troubling you. We understand that you are an individual, and that there are many factors that can cause, exacerbate or perpetuate your condition, and we aim to address all of these issues, so that we can help you to live your most optimal life, and keep doing the things that you love to do.

We utilise a variety of chiropractic techniques and modalities including manual adjustments (spinal manipulations), and also gentler alternatives to cater to your condition and preferences. We use state of the art equipment, which help us to accurately diagnose and effectively treat your condition in a timely manner.

We also love what we do and wholeheartedly believe in caring for our community to allow families to experience the benefits of chiropractic.

We hope that by providing you the best service we can provide, you will feel, move and function better and you will pass on your recommendation to your family and friends so that we can care for them too!
