CHIROPRACTIC

Chiropractors are highly trained and skilled health practitioners that diagnose and treat the entire neuromusculoskeletal system.  The word Chiropractic arises from two Greek words – which when translated together mean ‘work done by hand’.  And that’s exactly what Chiropractic is.  Chiropractors are specifically trained to use their hands for treatment of many conditions like back pain, neck pain, sports injuries, headaches and poor posture.

In recent years additional modalities such as dry needling, taping, posture training, Smart Tools (IASTM), ultrasound, shockwave and laser therapy have been added to the range of techniques used by Chiropractors to ensure the optimum outcome of an active pain free life for their patients.

Types of CHIROPRACTIC services

  • Sports Chiropractic

    Sports Chiropractic is much like Musculoskeletal Chiropractic, but the focus is on the particular muscular and skeletal area put under most risk of strain and injury in playing your particular sport.  Chiropractic is used to both maintain optimum function and mobility, and to reduce pain and discomfort caused by injury.  Improved healing time means sports players – including weekend warriors – can be back doing what they love faster.

  • Pregnancy Chiropractic

    There are a huge number of changes in the body during pregnancy.  Relaxation of the ligaments and changes to the centre of gravity of the body can increase instability, and the pressure on the ligaments of the abdomen and the pelvic floor can create long term problems for women if not properly managed.  Pregnancy Chiropractic is gentle and light, and aims to assist your body in managing the changes both before and after the birth.

  • Musculoskeletal Chiropractic

    Musculoskeletal Chiropractic aims to restore and optimise health through ensuring the proper functioning of the spine and nervous system.  If the spine is mis-aligned, the nervous system, which channels through the spinal column to the brain, cannot function properly.  This can cause a range of problems including headaches , sciatica , lower back pain , hip problems, knee complaints and carpal tunnel syndrome , amongst others. By ensuring alignment of the spine and free-functioning of the nervous system, many of these problems can be alleviated.
