Chiropractic care is the term used for the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions by a trained chiropractor using a system of therapies focused on the treatment of the structure of the body. With proper alignment of the spine, the body will be able to heal itself without surgery or medication making chiropractic care a non-invasive and drug-free alternative solution. This stems from the understanding that the spine acts as a vital passage that conveys messages from your brain to the rest of your body.

When the spine or anything it is connected to is under pressure, your well-being and lifestyle may suffer and if left untreated, underlying causes can lead to more damage and pain that will continue to affect your overall quality of life.

At Gonnet Chiropractic in north Brisbane, we manipulate the body’s alignment to relieve pain, improve function, and restore correct biomechanics to the joints. A wide variety of holistic and nurturing techniques are utilised, including full-body manual chiropractic adjustments, drop technique, and some low force options. Each treatment is specifically designed for the individual, depending on the complaint: For example, treatment protocols for someone presenting with migraine or vertigo are very different from treatments provided to a patient with lower back or hip pain.

When to see a chiropractor?

If you’re experiencing back or neck problems that are affecting your ability to go about your daily routine, chiropractic care may help relieve your symptoms. Whether your pain is caused by work, accidents, sporting injuries, or the stresses of daily, a chiropractor can alleviate pain and help maintain a healthy spine. 

People most commonly visit chiropractors when they are experiencing: 

  • Back or neck pain 
  • Headaches
  • Whiplash
  • Strains and sprains
  • Overuse injuries
  • Sporting injuries
  • Work injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Restricted movement in the back, shoulders, or neck 
  • Migraines 
  • Hip pain
  • Shoulder pain 

Spinal manipulation and chiropractic care are the best solutions for the effective treatment of acute lower back pain. Research also shows that chiropractic care has been helpful in treating osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia as it often responds to the moderate pressure used by chiropractic techniques. 

Chiropractic treatments

When you visit Gonnet Chiropractic for the first time, our qualified chiropractor in Mango Hill will conduct a thorough medical history as your pain may trace back to injuries from the past or how your current injury may have occurred. 

We will conduct orthopedic and neurological examinations that are intended to determine the pain generating structure and help identify the source of your complaint whether it be your spine, bones, joints, muscles, soft tissue, ligament and tendons as well assess the function of your motor, sensory and cranial nerves. Where required, we may obtain further diagnostic tests such as an x-ray. 

Once all your examinations are complete, we will give you a working diagnosis. A working diagnosis is the most likely the cause of your primary complaint. This diagnosis will help us prepare a treatment plan that is tailored to your specific situation and may include a referral to see other specialists in conjunction with your chiropractic care.

Common chiropractic treatments include: 

  • Exercises
  • Stretches
  • Spinal manipulation or adjustment
  • Mobilisation 
  • Instructions on the application of heat or ice
  • Soft tissues techniques (e.g. dry needling)
  • Activity modification (e.g. changing how you sit at a computer desk)

Your North Lakes chiropractor at Gonnet Chiropractor will walk you through the options available to you and provide the best treatment plan for getting you back to your normal routine as soon as possible.
