Chiropractic treatments

Common chiropractic treatments include a range of different techniques, such as: 

  • spinal manipulation, sometimes called an adjustment – using the hands to apply controlled force to a joint of the spine
  • mobilisation – gentle movement of the joint to increase its range of motion
  • exercises
  • reassurance
  • application of heat or ice
  • stretching
  • soft tissue techniques – such as massage
  • activity modification – suggesting how to make changes to your day-to-day activities to alleviate discomfort and enable recovery
  • lifestyle advice – such as healthy eating and physical activity advice
  • physiologic therapeutics – such as use of ultrasound, laser or TENS
  • orthotics – shoe inserts that help support the feet and improve posture and alignment
  • drop piece table technique – the use of a specially designed table to help mobilise a joint in a controlled way
  • treatment of other joints, including feet, ankles, shoulders, wrists, elbows.

Your chiropractor will discuss these with you as part of a shared decision-making process.
