Chronic pain is a widespread issue that affects many people in Australia. To help manage this condition, many individuals turn to chiropractors for relief. But what special techniques do Australian chiropractors use to help manage chronic pain? This article will explore the treatment protocols and management strategies recommended by an independent chiropractic reviewer from New South Wales, Australia. In New South Wales, an injured worker enters the workers' compensation system and the case is usually handled by a default insurer.
The objective of the treating professional is to make it easier for the applicant to return to their pre-injury situation, their work and their quality of life. Currently, there is very little documentation on the management of injured workers by chiropractors in the Australian healthcare environment. This study aims to examine the treatment protocols and recommendations given to chiropractors by an independent chiropractic reviewer from the state of New South Wales, and to analyze the management strategies recommended for the injured worker. It is important to note that the opinions expressed in this report are those of the authors and not those of WorkCover NSW or any insurer, professional or patient described in this document. This study was funded by RMIT University, the Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Sydney, the Australian Chiropractic Association and the Australian Association of Chinese Acupuncture Medicine &.Based on a national adult population of 15.5 million, it was estimated that Australian adults had made 10.2, 19.1 and 3.1 million visits to acupuncturists, chiropractors and osteopaths, respectively, in the 12-month period.
Acupuncturists, chiropractors and osteopaths receive university level training in their disciplines and their services are covered by most of Australia's major private health insurance funds. This article presents the profile of chiropractors recruited for the ACORN PBRN, a nationally representative sample of chiropractors working in Australia. The ACORN PBRN is a network of chiropractors who have agreed to participate in research studies related to chiropractic care. Chiropractic care is a holistic approach to health care that focuses on treating musculoskeletal conditions such as back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other joint pain. Chiropractors use a variety of techniques such as spinal manipulation, soft tissue therapy, exercise therapy, nutrition advice, lifestyle advice and more to help manage chronic pain conditions. Chiropractors also use special techniques such as dry needling, ultrasound therapy, electrical stimulation therapy and laser therapy to help manage chronic pain conditions. Dry needling involves inserting thin needles into trigger points in muscles or connective tissue to help reduce muscle tension and improve range of motion.
Ultrasound therapy uses sound waves to penetrate deep into tissues and reduce inflammation and swelling. Electrical stimulation therapy uses electrical currents to stimulate muscles and reduce pain. Laser therapy uses low-level lasers to reduce inflammation and promote healing.

In conclusion, Australian chiropractors use a variety of special techniques such as dry needling, ultrasound therapy, electrical stimulation therapy and laser therapy to help manage chronic pain conditions. These techniques are used in combination with other treatments such as spinal manipulation, soft tissue therapy, exercise therapy and nutrition advice to provide comprehensive care for patients suffering from chronic pain conditions.
