What is chiropractic and how can it help?

Centenary Chiropractic Centre

Over 100 years ago, D.D. Palmer (the Founder of Chiropractic) had a "big idea" — that good health can be sustained naturally, without drugs or surgery, through chiropractic care. Today, chiropractic is the second largest licensed health care profession. 

Chiropractors work with and enhance the body's natural ability to heal itself without drugs or surgery. Like all professional health care practitioners, chiropractors follow definite protocols to gain the information to provide you with the best care. They will take your history and conduct physical, orthopaedic and neurological examinations and may order or take X-rays.

What is chiropractic?

Centenary Chiropractic Centre

We know that the nervous system controls the functions of every tissue, organ and system in the body. Chiropractic concerns itself with the relationship between structure (primarily ale spine) and function (primarily coordinated by the nervous system) of the human body, and how that relationship affects the restoration and preservation of health. 

When that relationship is compromised by a spinal bone interfering with your nervous system (a vertebral subluxation), your chiropractor will deliver a spinal adjustment (a specific, precise, corrective force to the offending spinal segment). 

This correction permits normal nerve transmission, enabling the body's innate recuperative power to begin the healing process. It is said that the body needs no help or interference in looking after itself.

 How To Lift To Avoid Injury

How To Lift To Avoid Injury

Monday, October 10, 2022

Approximately 4 million Australians have back issues, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics 2017-2018 National Health Survey. Furthermore, it is estimated that between 70% and 90% of the population will have lower back pain at some point during their lifetime. 

One of the ways to protect your back and prevent injury is to use a proper lifting technique when lifting heavy objects.  

The first step is to thoroughly plan out your lift and ensure that the area is free of obstacles. Begin in a safe position with your feet shoulder width apart and positioned as close as possible to the object you are going to lift. Bend at the knees while maintaining the natural curve in your lower back and tighten your core muscles while your reach for the object. 

Once you have a secure grip on the object, use your leg muscles (not your back) to push yourself back up into a standing position, while keeping the object as close to your body as possible. Ensure that you don’t twist your back when you’re carrying the object – if you need to place it to the side, take a step and pivot with your feet. 

If you need to position the object back on the ground, bend at the knees again into a squatting position, while still maintaining the nature curve in your lower back and place the object on the floor slowly before returning to the standing position. 

Remember to never try to lift an object that your think is too heavy and ask a friend for help instead of attempting a potentially hazardous lift.  

Unsafe lifting techniques put your back at risk of injury, which can lead to pain and disability. By being conscientious of your lifting technique, you can help to protect your back and decrease your risk of suffering a debilitating injury. 

If you are experiencing back pain due to lifting or moving and object and want to discuss treatment with your chiropractor, book online @ or call us today on 07 3381 0440
