Are chiropractic adjustments safe?
In the words of the New Zealand Government’s Inquiry, chiropractic care is “remarkably safe” (1). Chiropractic has an excellent safety record. It is the result of a conservative approach to health that avoids invasive procedures or addictive drugs.
In relation to the treatment of neck and back pain, studies have shown that a course of chiropractic care was 250 times safer than a course of anti-inflammatory drugs (2).
The US Governments’ National Centre for Complementary and Alternative Medicine rated Chiropractic treatment effective and relatively safe for the treatment of lower back pain when performed by a trained and licensed practitioner (3). In fact, 14 out of the 16 International Clinical Guidelines for the treatment of lower back pain recommend Chiropractic care (4).
So you can rest assured you are in safe hands.

I think my problem is muscular, can chiropractic help?
Of course! Your nerves that exit from your spine connect with many areas, including the muscles. When nerves are irritated at the spine, there is spasming and tightening of the muscles that are connected to those nerves. For chiropractor tension headache relief, we can alleviate discomfort by adjusting the body. Many people find that once they get adjusted and the nerves are functioning well, the muscles naturally relax. We use soft tissue techniques to further address the muscles and also have a local referral network if further work is needed.
How do I know what type of headache I have?
At our office, we make sure we assess your spine thoroughly. We explain all our findings and help you make sense of what is going on. At the end of our assessment, we will advise you on the best course of action and how to best help you get to your health goal. Whether you need tension headache or migraine treatment in Melbourne, we can help.
How many visits will it take?
Chiropractor tension headache relief and migraine chiropractic care will differ between people. Each person is unique and has their own set of circumstances. The same applies to their condition and the most appropriate course of treatment. At our office, we make sure we create a detailed treatment plan and help you answer the questions of what we can do, how long it will take and the best options to get the ideal result.
What if chiropractic care doesn’t help?
