Chiropractors are dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment and management of spine related disorders and the health of the whole body.
Using an evidence-based approach the focus is finding out what the problem is and what things are contributing to your issue. We listen, thoroughly examine and then provide a comprehensive diagnosis which is clearly and respectfully explained.
A treatment plan is created and tailored to your specific needs. We embrace a collaborative approach with your previous health practitioners and if required refer you on for specialist opinion and communication.
As each case and patient is different, each treatment approach is unique and influenced by things like age, stress levels, beliefs, previous injuries or procedures and patient preference. Therefore, we use an array of treatment options to best suit the patient and the diagnosis. Almost always rehabilitation and corrective exercises are prescribed, in all cases safety is of the upmost focus.
Dr Campbell strives to help you achieve optimal movement, function, performance and health.
Sports chiropractic is a branch of chiropractic for those with an interest and expertise in treating athletes.
The focus of sports chiropractic is to provide care in the conservative management, rehabilitation and performance optimisation of the neuromusculoskeletal system for athletes. Sports chiropractors are also strongly driven to participate in a multi-disciplinary sports injury care environment to help provide the best care for each athlete.
Sports chiropractic achieves this focus through the application of a multimodal treatment approach that includes one or more of the following: manipulation, mobilisation, soft tissue therapies, electrotherapy, rehabilitation and other movement/exercise therapies, nutritional advice, strapping and bracing and other related approaches. These approaches are applied to injury management in the form of acute, subacute and chronic injury as well as in the prevention of injury and the optimisation of athletic performance through the pursuit of the highest efficiency in neuromusculoskeletal functioning.
A sports chiropractor may possess additional qualifications specific to sport, assimilating a large body of clinical information specific to the special needs of those who participate in sport.
Sports chiropractic is growing rapidly nationally and internationally and is well established at many world-level sporting events, such as the Olympic Games and the World Games.
You do not need a referral to see a chiropractor however please bring any medical reports or scans that will help Dr Campbell understand your problem. At Melbourne Chiro clinic I am keen to communicate and collaborate with your Doctor or other health practitioners to ensure you get the best care possible.
First, I take a thorough and detailed history of the main concern and then ask questions about your general health and lifestyle to understand the issue further. Next, a comprehensive examination is done to provide you with an accurate and clear diagnosis.
If I think I can help you, I’ll tell you and if I think that I can’t I will find the most appropriate person that can.
If it is deemed necessary, I will refer you for x-rays and work with your GP to facilitate any other imaging that may be needed.
Once a diagnosis has been made, a plan will be given to you which will outline the best recommendations for the best possible outcome. Obviously, I want to help you as quickly as possible so in most cases treatment can begin right away.
Treatment is based on the most up to date scientific research and one modality is not superior than another therefore I utilise an array of different technique approaches while holistically considering the most suitable treatment option for you. Typical interventions include:
Each treatment has a cumulative therapeutic effect so often a course of treatment is advocated. Once your symptoms and initial findings have improved a discussion about maintain your health and preventing re-occurrence takes place.
