For Wellness

It is essential to note that your good health does not solely depend on you receiving regular treatment from a chiropractor or any other healthcare practitioner. Empower yourself. Lifestyle, diet, managing stress levels, and a good balance between rest, activity and exercise are just as important. We get that – we assist when appropriate and we advise or encourage you when appropriate.

Some patients only visit the chiropractor following an injury, or during a particularly bad flare-up of back or neck pain. If this is your goal –we respect that. However, injury treatment and rehabilitation is just a small part of what chiropractic care is all about. Indeed, preventive chiropractic care is just as important as chiropractic treatment for injuries and can do just as much to improve your quality of life and overall wellness.

At Yeronga Chiropractic & Wellness Centre in Brisbane, general well-being is paramount to us. We don’t just help our patients through sports injuries or the pain of pregnancy.   We also want to assist people to live as healthy a life as possible.

About Wellness Chiropractic

So why should you pursue chiropractic for maintenance/wellness, rather than simply using it as a way to treat injuries or pain?

Think of your body as an automobile. When you buy a car, it is in pristine condition and runs perfectly. However, the more you use it, the more likely it is for the car to develop issues. Maybe the oil needs to be changed; perhaps the brakes need to be repaired; maybe the timing belt needs to be replaced. These repairs and services may seem like a hassle, but they keep your car in good condition, preserve its value and ensure that it will run better for longer. They also help prevent breakdowns or on-the-road incidents that can be costlier and far more dangerous than any routine maintenance procedure.

Your body is very similar. Over time, day-to-day activities can lead to small spinal misalignments. Perhaps you are sitting at work all day with poor posture, or maybe your spine has naturally borne the brunt of a tough, athletic training schedule.

Either way, the misalignment of the spine can create numerous issues for your body’s health. When the spine is out of alignment, it can lead to discomfort, reduced mobility and range of motion, chronic pain and other problems. The spine is also linked with the nervous system, which means that when your spine is not functioning well, this can stress your nervous system.

Chiropractic care, then, not only works to reduce pain and increase comfort, but it also assists in allowing your body to function well and recover well. When the spine is functioning well, and the nervous system is healthy, the body simply works better. Investing in chiropractic care can help you to avoid a situation where you throw out your back or otherwise injure your spine later in life, potentially saving you pain, time and costly intervention.

Healthy Family

Chiropractic for your Family

At Yeronga Chiropractic & Wellness Centre in Brisbane, we welcome patients of any age. Though chiropractic care is often thought of as just being for adults, it can be beneficial for babies and children.

In fact, kids can get extra benefits from chiropractic care (see Chiropractic for Children and Babies). Spinal health is particularly vital during the growth and development stages. Having a chiropractor that you can trust with your child’s adjustments and other treatments can help his or her spine develops as it is supposed to. Like other forms of preventive/wellness care and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, this can pay dividends later in life.
