The modern chiropractor practices evidence based therapy. Here at George Street Chiropractic we use varieties of soft tissue therapy such as massage and active release methods, alongside manipulation and joint mobilisation. We often prescribe therapeutic exercise and give advice regarding posture and ergonomics. One of the main goals of treatment is to help restore and enhance movement of your joints and muscles. Check out the link below for a neat video explaining why movement or lack of movement has a great influence on pain and stiffness.
Prior to any treatment a full history and examination is made and if further investigation is needed we may order X-Ray or MRI, etc.
Here is an interesting video explaining why we can feel stiff, tight and sore.

If you do require X-rays we will order them for you and arrange for them to be bulk-billed (subject to you having a medicare card).
Whilst most of our patients consult us directly, we also accept patients referred from GPs, Specialists and WorkCover Insurance claims.
