Chiropractic Care


What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic treatment will vary depending on your presentation and symptoms. Our health philosophy is hands-on, natural alternative therapy for symptom relief (such as neck pain, low back pain, loss of mobility and some headaches), with a focus on prevention and rehabilitation. At ChiroCure Clinic our chiropractors aim to find the cause of the problem as well as treating the symptoms.Our services correct joint dysfunction of the spine and extremities to correctly align the body’s musculoskeletal structure, so that the nervous system is functioning at its best which allows your body to do the same.

Chiropractic treatment can be applied with various techniques to the following areas of the body: muscles, joints, bones, cartilage  and ligaments and tendons; particularly around the spine. Chiropractic care can be combined with other natural therapies, supplements or adjuncts; some of which include: remedial massage therapy, myotherapy, posture supports, ergonomic advice, therapeutic pillows for sleep, back supports, home exercise programs and natural anti-inflammatory creams which can contribute to faster and more effective rehabilitation.

​An adjustment may help to:

​>Decrease inflammation that has built up around the affected area 
> Reduce nerve impediment & irritation that can cause pain and dysfunction such as weakness.

Meet the ‘Activator’ Adjusting Tool

A Chiropractic activator adjusting instrument, with a spring-loaded hand-held mechanical instrument that provides a quick, low-force impulse at specific points (SpineHealth, 2016). The adjusting device used by our chiropractic professionals applies a pain-free, low force treatment, to release muscle spasms and correct misalignment that occur in the spine and body. By providing a high velocity, low amplitude thrust it gives a consistently effective result.

What does posture have to do with it?

A loss of normal motion or position of these bones can irritate and impair the function of the nervous system. This can disrupt the transmission of nerve impulses that control your body. Posture is a major consideration when assessing and treating the spine. ​At ChiroCure Clinic St.Kilda our chiropractors aim to correct this process, thereby improving pain, movement & posture ​throughout your entire body.

Xray Imaging & Referral   (bulk-billed)

Radiology Imaging can be an integral part of chiropractic diagnostic procedures.  X-rays will help to determine the health of your spine by clearly showing misalignment and degeneration. They may increase the safety and accuracy of your care, and help determine the right program for you. ​Our chiropractors take a thorough approach to help ensure that you will be provided with the highest standard of chiropractic care.

Based on the nature of your condition as well as a number of other factors, x-rays of your spine or injured body part may be required to identify subtle abnormalities, serious pathologies, level of degeneration and nerve irritation present. If X-rays are required you will be referred to a local radiography clinic. When referred by a Chiropractor, imaging is bulk-billed with Medicare.
