At Chalkers Crossing they focus on producing premium quality cool climate wines with grapes sourced from the Hilltops Region. They planted their first vines in late-1997 and made their first wines in March 2000. Rockleigh Vineyard, just 5km south of Young in the Hilltops Region of New South Wales, was a neglected plum orchard when it was acquired by Chalkers Crossing. The orchard was converted to a modern 10ha vineyard in late-1997 The red sandy loam soils of the Hilltops Region were recognised long ago as prime land for growing. The combination of fertile soils, reliable rainfall and a Mediterranean continental climate makes the Hilltops Region ideal for growing premium quality grapes for wine production. Chalkers Crossing wine varieties include Riesling, Semillon, Shiraz, and Cabernet Sauvignon produced from grapes grown in their vineyard, and Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay produced from grapes grown for them in the Tumbarumba Region of New South Wales. All of other wines are made at the Chalkers Crossing Winery on the Grenfell Road in Young. Their winemaker, Celine Rousseau, was the 2002 QANTAS Young Australian Winemaker of the Year. Celine was born in Paris and trained in Bordeaux. Her skills and experience are reflected in the exceptional quality of the Chalkers Crossing wines.

There are many people who wonder are point cook chiropractors doctors so if you are one of them then you are at the right place as we will be discussing about it here. Well, the chiropractors need to earn the doctorate degree by attending medical school. The chiropractors study therapy and medication in the medical school for 3 years. They generally focus on treating the problems related to joints and spine. The chiropractors are required to obtain a license before they start practicing. So, you don’t need to worry while hiring a chiropractor if you make sure that they are holding a valid license.


If need arises, then a good and genuine chiropractor would use x-rays for diagnosing the problems, thereby devise and implement a treatment protocol for their patient. Some treatment also involves manipulation of joints and back. The chiropractor offers alternative treatments for the back pain which are non-invasive and less risky than surgery.


There are certain neuromuscular conditions which would not respond to the chiropractic medicines. Therefore, in certain cases, the chiropractor works together with the doctor in order to treat the patient. Basically, a chiropractor would benefit the patient with more non-traditional treatments than the traditional ones. The alternative treatments might be incorporated into their program for speeding up the recovery process of the patient.


There are many health insurance policies which covers the chiropractic care. So, if you are taking a health insurance policy then make sure that it includes the chiropractic care so that if need arises then you can make the most out of it.


So, now you know that the chiropractors are doctors and there are many patients have benefitted from their treatments. Those treatments are such that they can only be treated by a qualified chiropractor. So, if you need a chiropractor for your joint or back pain then you should definitely hire them.…
