What is chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a natural approach to health care that recognises and respects the fact that the human body is an incredible self-healing, self-regulating organism.
The practice of chiropractic is focused on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine, and pelvis) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.
Chiropractic and your nervous system
Your nervous system is your body’s information superhighway. It controls absolutely everything in your body and holds the key to your body’s awesome ability to heal and express itself – so keeping it free from interference is a top priority!
A nervous system free from interference allows the brain to accurately send and receive all the vital messages your body needs to grow, heal and function.
Stress and your health
At Complete Health Chiropractic, Chatswood we understand that the human body is continually striving to achieve a state of balance with its environment. The body’s ability to adapt to its environment is challenged by the demands of our busy lifestyles.
These daily stresses can be physical, chemical or emotional in nature and when left unchecked they can increase your risk of injury and limit your body’s ability to be healthy.
So what do chiropractors do?
Chiropractors use gentle, specific adjustments to help restore normal function to the spine and nervous system so that the body can heal itself naturally.
How we eat, move and think as well as our relationships and our environment all impact our ability to be healthy. That is why empowering education around these lifestyle issues is fundamental to our service.
When Chiropractic is used in combination with other healthy lifestyle habits you may experience profound and lasting changes in your life.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is chiropractic safe?
According to the New Zealand Government’s Commission of Inquiry, chiropractic care is “remarkably safe.” This the result of a conservative approach that avoids invasive procedures or the use of medication however, occasionally there have been some adverse reactions.
Chiropractors are 5-year university trained health professionals and are government registered and regulated. At Complete Health Chiropractic, Chatswood we use thorough testing and state-of-the-art digital technology to determine if chiropractic is right for you.
What makes the cracking or popping sound in some chiropractic adjustments?
With some adjustments you may sometimes hear a clicking or popping sound. This is simply caused by a release of gas that is dissolved in the lubricating fluid of the joint as spinal movement is restored. It can be likened to removing a lid from a fizzy drink.
At Complete Health Chiropractic we use many different techniques including manual adjustments, a hand-held instrument called an activator, pelvic blocks or cranial mobilisation to to adjust the spine and re-align the body.
Specific, gentle techniques are used for adjusting pregnant women, babies, children, seniors.
How long will I need chiropractic care?
At Complete Health Chiropractic, Chatswood we like to offer a holistic approach that encourages prevention and long-term health rather than short-term relief alone but how long you decide to benefit from chiropractic care is always up to you.
As health professionals it is our responsibility to provide you with guidance around chiropractic and lifestyle habits so you can make informed choices about your health. Like regular dental or eye check-ups or screening tests from your doctor, caring for your spine and nervous system is a vital part of maintaining your health and wellbeing.
Our care recommendations depend on a variety of factors including your age, how long you have had your condition, if there are any degenerative changes or other structural issues. Regardless of whether you come to us with pain holding you back or whether you come to us looking to optimise your body function, we are here to help you achieve your health goals.
What happens on my first visit?
The goal of your first visit is to get to know you and understand your unique situation to determine if chiropractic can help you. We use digital technology, thorough testing and x-rays, if clinically required, to assess the health of the spine and nervous system and look to find the underlying cause of your complaint. We aim to identifying the lifestyle factors that may also be contributing to your pain or condition.
Most of the people that come to us are referred by current practice members or GPs however, Chiropractors are primary care practitioners with 5 years of university training and a medical referral is not required for consultation. We work collaboratively with other health professional to find the best solution for you.
