Chiropractors and what they can do for you
Chiropractic is a method that uses hand or done by hand wherein it addresses musculoskeletal conditions and its impact of these conditions on the nervous system. It has claimed to address other non-musculoskeletal conditions too like gastrointestinal syndromes, migraines, ear infections, and headaches. It uses techniques that include adjustments, soft tissue techniques, rehabilitation, and the likes.
What are the benefits of chiropractic:
1.Relieves pain without medication
As this approach does not require any medication at all
2.Targets the underlying cause of the pain
As it focuses on the nervous system which is responsible for the normal function of the whole body, it helps track down its cause and not just a temporary relief from the symptoms
3.Tailored fit approach
As it applies different techniques and tools depending on the ailment
4.A Low-Risk Form of Treatment
As it does not involve any medication or any special type of procedure to treat the condition
5.Helps in treating other non-musculoskeletal problems and further dysfunction
Chiropractic helps prevent joint dysfunction and has been proven to address conditions like ear infection, migraine, headaches, and many more.
Chiropractors in Australia study for a minimum of 5 years at the university level and have to be licensed by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Authority.
Things you should discuss with your chiropractor:
1.Your medical history
2.Your concerns about the treatment- are there safety issues you need to know, expected side effects you will be experiencing after the treatment
3.Ask about your treatment plan -its effectiveness, and why it is recommended
4.Ask how total patient care will be implemented given that you also have other health professionals working alongside with your condition or other conditions
Accessing chiropractic services
If you are NDIA managed, you will be limited with the service provider options, as you will be choosing from NDIS registered service providers only. If you are plan or self-managed, you have the freedom to choose a wide variety of service providers from NDIS registered to non-registered. One difference between plan and self-managed though is that, self-managed participants are required to do paperwork on your end from booking a service provider to processing their invoice and ensuring that they are paid on time. This is where you get to appreciate the beauty of being plan-managed as your plan manager will take care of everything from first to the last step, all you need to do is to attend your appointment.
