CHIROPAEDIC – was formed due to an inherent need for Chiropractors who specialise in Orthopaedics; the specialty that focuses on injuries and diseases of your body’s musculoskeletal system. This complex system, which includes your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves, allows you to move, work, and be active.

At Chiropaedic, we utilize only evidence based treatment and are fully equipped to meet your needs and maximize your neurological and muscular function. Our Chiropractors will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan to manage the physical, emotional, and behavioral changes that you may experience.

We treat patients with a wide variety of conditions and diagnoses including:

  • Brain injury
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • Neuropathy
  • Other neurological injuries

Neuromuscular rehabilitation consists of evaluation and treatment of conditions related to the neurological system; brain, nerves, and spinal cord. Neuromuscular rehabilitation has been scientifically proven to assist in the faster recovery of neuromuscular injuries than Chiropractic alone.

Commonly used techniques during rehabilitation include stretching, mobility training, gait training, neuromuscular retraining, functional training and pain management. Technology plays an important role in advancement of neurological rehabilitation and we offer the following:

  • Redcord® Neurac; a treatment method that aims to restore functional and pain-free movement patterns through high levels of neuromuscular stimulation
  • Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES); is a technique used to elicit a muscle contraction using electrical impulses.

Electrical stimulation has been shown to be an effective therapeutic option for individuals suffering from pain and weakness. Below are some of the benefits clients may experience:

  • Decreased pain
  • Muscle re-education and Strengthening
  • Increased range of motion
  • Increased circulation
  • Decreased spasticity
  • Reduced edema
  • Decreased inflammation
  • Improved overall function

At Chiropaedic your care plans are goal focused. Utilising visual outcome measures we can set a benchmark of your functional ability. We can track your performance during your care so that you can see noticeable improvement in not just how you feel but how you function. We focus on improving your activities of daily living, reducing the risk of injury and therefore improving your long-term quality of life.

Corporate “Wellness” clinics and franchise arrangements may soon dominate the marketplace for Chiropractic treatments. Aggressive marketing while diminishing the real risks of treatment hallmarks, are the voracious drive to get the punters in the door. 
Once you are in the door, upselling is the name of the game. 

Unhappy with the outcome? Well too bad-you didn’t read the fine print when you signed on? It should be appreciated that these clinics operate to a “set play”, delivered by practitioners trained to a formula. The delivery is fast track with the predictable simplicity of a “one size fits all” formula. 

The clinics are almost exclusively motivated by profit and characterised by an “off the shelf” approach. It may be worth asking who owns the clinic. The answer is more than likely to be a Chiropractic entrepreneur, struck-off from international regulatory boards, replicating the same formula in Australia. 

Targeting the inexperienced, excited apprentice, motivated by the promise of success and financial reward, the formula then replicates and becomes scalable. Like “Fast Food Chains” they may well succeed but the stomach is far more forgiving than the Spine. 

Discerning patients are not seduced by the lure of cheap end entrepreneurs with highly indigestible outcomes.
