What Is Chiropractic Care like in Australia?
Chiropractors play an important role in Australia’s robust national healthcare system. As fully registered and regulated healthcare professionals, Doctors of Chiropractic deliver a drug-free, surgery-free approach to treatment and recovery.
Chiropractic care involves diagnosing, treating and preventing a range of musculoskeletal disorders to aid in injury recovery, pain relief, the function of the nervous system, and overall general health.
At Northbridge Chiropractic, we offer a friendly, relaxed and holistic approach to healing. We work closely with each patient, giving you the time and expertise you require to optimise your health and wellbeing.
What Is the History of Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic techniques and teachings can be traced back to Ancient Greek and Roman civilisations. The premise that the body has inherent recuperative abilities can be linked to the teachings of Hippocrates – the father of Greek medicine – as well as Galen. These ideas were later developed by Daniel David Palmer, who is credited as the inventor of chiropractic and the first person to perform to perform a chiropractic adjustment in 1895.
Chiropractic in Australia
Chiropractors have had a presence in Australia since the early 1900s and chiropractic remains one of the most prominent healthcare professions in the country.
Having been the first country to include chiropractic learning in a university environment, Australia has led the way in chiropractic education. Today, all Australian chiropractors study at university for at least five years, gaining knowledge in human physiology, anatomy, radiology, diagnosis, and other areas.
