11 JUL CHIROPRACTIC HELP FOR LOWER BACK PAIN

For many people, Chiropractic has been their saving grace, the relief they’ve been looking for. Whilst many associate Chiropractic with low back pain treatment, understanding the many different causes of low back pain and what forms of treatment should be applied can be very complicated to understand.

IS CHIROPRACTIC FOR LOW BACK PAIN MANIPULATION?

Many believe that Chiropractic is all about manipulating or cracking spines. It’s a belief system that has been created by many over decades of observation. Whilst it’s true that Chiropractors are experts at performing highly specific and safe forms of manipulation commonly referred to as adjustments and from the outside it might seem the most common thing Chiropractors do, what happens behind the scenes is a lot more complicated.

Our Chiropractors are experts in treating low back pain.

The Causes of low back pain

Back pain can be caused by dysfunction of many different systems. You’re probably already aware of the most obvious causes such as muscular strains, arthritis and imbalances or disc issues, but there’s a lot more to low back pain than simply biomechanics.

Here are just some of the things we’ve seen associated with Low Back Pain:

Biggest cause of Recurrent low back pain

One of the biggest causes of unresolving low back pain we see in our office is dysfunction of a small ligament called the iliolumbar ligament. This ligament connects the pelvis to the lumbar spine and helps guide and regulate movement of this area.

Why We’re Different at Spinewise

Lower back pain treatment requires a thorough investigation into all the factors that influence spinal, muscular and neurological function. A one-fits all approach to dealing with back pain can often lead to an ongoing need for therapy, poor results and potentially aggravation of your problem.

This is why we spend up to an hour initially with every patient we see to clearly define what your problem is, how it is affecting you, what you want to achieve and the physical, muscular, neurological, physiological and visceral influences components that might be contributing to your back pain.

We then carefully structure a strategy to address all of these components in a logical, clear, precise and timely manner to maximize your potential to achieve the best result possible.

Will I have to be Cracked?

You might be surprised to learn that with all the in-depth investigations we perform to get to the root of your problem, it’s actually quite rare that we would ‘need’ to manipulate your spine. Even in those specific cases where it might be required, there are still other methods and means we have of achieving healthy movement in the spine that does not require manipulation.

Expert Chiropractic for low back pain

Our team has done hundreds of hours of post graduate training to broaden our knowledge and provide you with a comprehensive approach to dealing with back pain. Training in NeuroEmotional Techinque (NET), Applied Kinesiology (AK), biochemistry and nutrition, herbals and supplementation, foot health and orthotics, biomechanics, functional health care and much more…

What this means for you is gone are the days of coming in getting manipulated and going home. Every person we see has a detailed program of care that is outlined with specific stages, steps and a timeline designed to bring them back to good health.

This often means no 2 sessions are usually the same. As Dr. Trevor (Founder and Chiropractor) often says “we have the goal to correct an issue properly the first time so it doesn’t return. As such we generally shouldn’t need to correct the same thing twice. This allows us to cover more problems, be more specific and achieve better results than we used to see through just manipulation alone.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Many people are often concerned whether the practitioners they are looking to can help them. That’s completely normal and we understand this. But there truly is only one true way of knowing whether we can help you or not and that is with a thorough assessment. What we can say is that we promise to be truthful, open and honest with our findings and also work with you to achieve goals you would like to achieve in ways you feel comfortable in achieving them. We understand for many people they still feel a little insecure, and that’s ok. So if you would like to have a brief chat with one of our practitioners about your case prior to coming in, arrange a 10 minute phone appointment with one of our practitioners so we can quickly work out if your problem is one we often work with.

Your initial assessment is the most important appointment you’ll have with our team. Your initial assessment provides us with the time to gather all the important bits of information we need to adequately identify the cause of your problems and work with you heading forward. It is comprised of various health, neurological, physiological and biomechanical tests designed to not only find the cause of your problem, but to help us identify any other potential problems that might be developing.

Often we may require the use of further assessments such as our digital foot scanning technology or heart rate variability technology. In some circumstances we may need to refer you for specialized imagery, such as X-Rays or MRI, or for various laboratory tests. Rest assured our team will walk you through this process so there are no worries or fears along the way.

The complete process of an initial assessment can take up to one hour depending upon the complexity of your problem.

Most health funds have some form of rebate for Chiropractic services. A quick call to your private health insurance provider should be able to answer this for you. Usually there is a separate section for ancillary healthcare which includes Chiropractic, Osteopathy, physiotherapy and other similar health care practices. So simply give your insurer a call and they’ll be able to advise you on your level of coverage.

In terms of our office, when you attend for your appointment we’ll provide you with an itemized receipt which you can use to immediately claim your assessment off. This allows you to keep track of your rebates without any stress at all.

Chiropractic care is not directly medicare rebatable in Australia. However, our practitioners do like working with your GP to provide an integrative approach to your health. As such, our team do accept Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) arrangements which allows for some rebates to be paid by medicare.

If you’re unsure or have specific questions in relation to the use of your EPC plan, just give our office a call and we’ll discuss its use with you further.

We have our own specific parking available right behind our office. Feel free to park within this space. Otherwise, there is free parking available on the road alongside our office on Curtin Street.

Tottenham station is approximately 1.5km along Ashley Street and Dobson’s Reserve bus stop is also a mere 50m from our office. Many people attending our office get here via the bus and train.
