What is chiro?
A chiropractor is a licensed health professional who uses their hands to treat problems with bones, muscles, and joints. The focus of chiropractic care is often on the spine, and chiropractors commonly treat ailments like back pain, neck pain, headache, injuries, and joint stiffness.
How does a chiropractor work?
A chiropractor’s work is all done with their hands. In fact, the term chiropractor comes from the Greek terminology ‘chier’ meaning ‘hand’, and ‘praktikos’ meaning ‘done’. At the start of a chiropractic visit, the chiropractor will examine your spine, first visually and then by palpating and feeling the bones and soft tissues with their hands. Occasionally they may refer you for an X-ray or MRI, but more often then not they can treat you at your visit.
What are the chiropractic treatment options?
Once your chiropractor has examined you, they will discuss their recommended treatment options with you. Common chiropractic treatment options include techniques like:
- Spinal manipulation (also known as an adjustment)

Incline Health and Lewisham
Lewisham is a close neighbouring suburb to our Leichhardt clinic, and as such we treat many patients from Lewisham. It is a quick and easy drive to get to our clinic from Lewisham. We are only ten minutes down the road from Morton Park, and even less from the Lewisham public school. If you feel like getting in your dose of daily activity, the trip on foot takes roughly 30 minutes. Thanks to the local traffic, it is estimated that riding your bike from the local school will take the same amount of time in your car with a 10 minute ETA. Buses, however, take 20-25 minutes and leave every 15 minutes from the school or Morton Park. As close neighbours to Lewisham area, we are proud to have cared for many Lewisham residents in our years of experience. We are passionate about bringing state of the art care and recovery for people in pain and are industry-leading chiropractors, physiotherapists, and Pilates instructors. We look forward to helping you and empowering you to move and be pain-free in every aspect of your life.
