Back and neck pain treatment
Chiropractors are highly trained in the diagnosis and treatment of back and neck pain. More than just manipulation or "cracking", modern chiropractors can develop a specific treatment plan that includes education about why you have back or neck pain, exercises to improve your strength and mobility (and reduce the risk of your back pain occurring). But of course chiropractors are known for their hands on skills in mobilisation, manipulation and soft tissue massage, and in many cases can provide fast relief from pain.
Broad range of musculoskeletal conditions
Modern chiropractors are also trained in the assessment and management of a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions. Our chiropractors and physiotherapists in Willoughby undergo weekly cross-professional learning - that means we help each other to learn principles from both disciplines, so we can provide you with the best quality care.
Should I see a chiropractor or a physiotherapist?
For many conditions that we see, our chiropractors and physiotherapists are equally skilled. If you know the specific practitioner you would like to see, or the type of professional you would like to see, great, go ahead and book online or call to make an appointment. If you aren't sure, give us a call and we will ask a few questions and book you in with the best professional we have to help your specific problem.
