What Is Chiropractic

The Applecross Chiropractic Centre provides the full range of chiropractor services. Chiropractic is the second largest health profession in the world, and is a science based on the premise that good health depends, in part, upon a normally functioning nervous system and that interference with this system impairs normal function and lowers resistance to disease.
Interferences may be caused by structural distortions, particularly the spinal column – and chiropractors locate and correct these distortions.

What Education Do Chiropractors Obtain

A chiropractor takes 5 years of full-time study to complete the formal education at a tertiary institution leading to his degree as a Doctor of Chiropractic. This degree enables him to be registered by State Government Authorities.
The intense 5 year course includes such subjects as : Anatomy, Histology, Neuroanatomy, Neurology, Psychology, Biochemistry, Chiropractic Techniques, X-Ray, Physiology, Diagnosis, Pathology, Orthopaedics and Nutrition.

In addition to these subjects, the chiropractic student has to spend over 2000 hours in special clinical training.

At the Applecross Chiropractic Centre, Dr Michael French and Dr Jerome Ng are fully qualified chiropractors who provide drug-free chiropractic treatment for all members of the family.
