Chiropractic at Resilient Health is a little different! Our sports chiropractor has a holistic approach to all aspects of the body including their management and prevention.
Chiropractic takes a holistic approach to healthcare. It is a direct modality of treatment concerned with the diagnosis, management and prevention of mechanical disorders of the entire neuromusculoskeletal system including the spine, the extremities (e.g. foot/ankle, knee, shoulder), muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and the nervous system and general health.
Through comprehensive history taking, evaluation, diagnosis and individualized treatments & management plans it aims to enhance overall health, function & performance of the whole body.
At Resilient Health, our team works together so that all our patients can receive a collaborative, multi model treatment that best suits their needs.
In Australia, Chiropractors are recognised as primary health care providers and are trained to recognise conditions that require referral to medical practitioners or other allied health. Chiropractic university graduates hold a Masters qualification. They complete a minimum of five years university training in anatomy, physiology, pathology, general medical diagnosis and chiropractic techniques to enable them to perform standard medical examinations of the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory and nervous systems.
Australian law requires Chiropractors, to maintain ongoing professional development and education every year to stay in practice. In Australia, all chiropractors are required to be government-registered practitioners. If a chiropractor does not appear on this register they should not practice.
The register can be found at: http://www.ahpra.gov.au/Registration/Registers-of-Practitioners.aspx
