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.
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 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
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.
