Why Chiropractic?

Here's chiropractic in a nutshell:

Chiropractors are experts at caring for your spine.

The spine is an extremely common cause of pain and disability anywhere in your body - not just your back and neck. More importantly, your spinal cord sits in your spine and connects your brain to your body to make it work. So your spine and nervous system are closely connected. Spinal problems can cause nervous system problems, which can cause all sorts of problems!

This is why your spine can have such a big impact on your health and wellbeing.

Chiropractic care helps improve how your spine and nervous system work, which relieves pain and improves how you feel, and how your body functions!

Chiropractic care may benefit the whole family, including:

  • Pregnant women
  • Babies
  • Children
  • The elderly
  • People with disabilities

For more information on chiropractic philosophies, practices and the range of conditions treated, please refer to the Chiropractors' Association of Australia website.


About Our Clinic

At Croydon Chiropractic Centre, we're passionate about helping people.

We understand the importance of caring for spines, but also understand the importance of caring for our patients as a whole, and also caring for the greater community.

Our clinic has been serving the Croydon and surrounding community for over 30 years, and we genuinely enjoy helping our patients and their families.

We also make it a point to give back to the community through our Toys for Treatment initiative. One day a year, around Christmas time, our Chiropractors and staff donate their time to treat our patients in exchange for a toy which gets donated to the local Salvos. It's a fantastic time of year with many of our patients getting in on the action!

Here are some photos of our previous few Toys For Treatment days.
