Chiropractic is a gentle form of natural health care which aims to improve nervous system function primarily through gentle chiropractic adjustments (with particular attention to the spine, skull and pelvis).
Chiropractors complete a 5 year university double degree. After this, Chiropractors must undertake further professional development to continue expanding their knowledge and skills annually. Our Chiropractor, Dr Kate Adler, has completed a Bachelor of Science (Complementary Medicine) and Masters in Clinical Chiropractic (RMIT). She has also completed a certificate III in fitness, Cert IV Pilates (mat and reformer) and a 2 year Diplomat in Chiropractic Paediatric neuro-development.
Chiropractic is considered a primary health care service for low back and spinal related issues. All clients of The Chiro Tree undergo a thorough health history, Chiropractic, postural, orthopaedic and neurological examination/assessment. From here, recommended individual care options are always discussed before care commences.
Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that focuses on the relationship between the spine and the nervous system and how that relationship affects our health. Using spinal adjustments and other manual and soft tissue techniques, chiropractic corrects misalignments of the joints, improves muscle tone and stimulates nerve activity.
Chiropractic adjustments involve the application of a precise yet gentle force to a section of the spine that needs correction. This has been shown to reduce pain and improve spinal function.
Many people get adjusted when they are sick. We always recommend to call the clinic so we can find out more about the nature of your illness so we can advise you further.
Adjustments can be done various ways, such as high force manually or gently through the use of low force tools, to suit individual needs and preferences. People of all ages, from birth to 90+, get adjusted. Anyone experiencing mild discomfort can use heat to support any inflammation sitting in the area.
We look after babies, infants and children of all ages at our clinic using a very gentle approach. We mainly use cranial sacral and light pressure adjustments to help comfortably and gently look after your child’s health.
In Australia, we are not permitted to classify anyone as a ‘Paediatric Chiropractor’ no matter what training or practice the doctors have undertaken. Our Chiropractor, Dr Kate, is passionate about working with children and families and has done so for many years. She has invested in various post-graduate Paediatric training programs, including a 2 year Diplomat in Chiropractic Paediatric neuro-development.
