Services and Treatments

Routine Check-ups, Preventative Care

Through chiropractic care, one can prevent biomechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the negative effects of these disorders on the functioning of the nervous system and general health.

Regular adjustments are safe, and some patients can experience immediate relief as normal joint function is restored and the nerve is freed of any restrictive pressure or irritation. 

During the check-up, your chiropractor will do a full, top-to-toe, assessment and can assist you with any concerns you may have regarding your general health and wellbeing.

Diagnosis and Management

Your consultation will begin with a full health check.

Your chiropractor will ask questions relating to your current pain, how it began, its location and so forth. As well as other general questions about previous health conditions, medications and family medical history.

Next, your chiropractor will perform a physical exam, assessing your posture, joint motion, reflexes, muscle function and other neurological/orthopaedic tests.

Once your chiropractor has a better understanding of what the cause of your problem may be, they will decide if your condition can be treated with chiropractic care. 

Diagnosis may require further imaging (x-ray/ultrasound) or labarotry tests and your chiropractor may decide to refer you for a second opinion from the appropriate specialist. 

 

Acute and Chronic Pain

Chiropractic care has been known to successfully and safely treat many acute and chronic conditions that are nerve, muscle or joint related. 

Such neuromusculoskeletal conditions can range from neck pain, headaches (including migraines), whiplash, shoulder pain, arm and elbow pain, tingling in arms and hands, all the way to back pain, hip pain, leg pain, sciatic, knee pain and even foot pain.  Therefore, any condition that is related to any joint in the body can potentially be helped through chiropractic care. 

Although most chiropractors predominantly focus on the spine and how it is functioning, the biomechanics of the upper and lower limbs is also of great importance.

Athletic Recovery and Performance

Chiropractors understand that the body moves and functions as a whole and that any imbalance or dysfunction can cause further imbalance and eventually injury. We aim to restore normal mobility, balance, strength and function to the body so that you can perform at your peak.

At the chiropractic health centre we pay special attention to the latest treatment methods and modalities available for the management of sports injuries and make use of these modalities to ensure efficient recovery and return to play. 

Some of these modalities include manipulation, soft tissue therapy, dry needling, shockwave therapy, low-level laser therapy and supportive strapping.

Consistency is key and our practitioners place particular emphasis on continued rehabilitation and management to prevent future injuries and compensations from developing.

 

Paediatric and Maternal Care

Chiropractic can be beneficial to both mom and baby. During the pre and postpartum phases, mom’s body undergoes a host of hormonal driven changes to ligaments, joints, muscles and her biomechanics. Chiropractic care is a great conservative and safe option for reducing pain and optimising function throughout these phases.

Babies can also suffer from birth trauma or minor musculoskeletal dysfunction that could cause them to be in discomfort and impact other aspects such as feeding and sleeping.

Having a chiropractic assessment to rule out any serious concerns and gently treat your baby’s discomfort can settle both you and your baby.

Paediatric care also extends beyond infancy and your chiropractor can look after your child through all their developmental stages, treating acute injuries, monitoring scoliosis and biomechanics as well as assessing for paediatric specific musculoskeletal conditions.

Posture and Ergonomics

Your work and home environment may be contributing significantly to your chronic/acute pain and development of  musculoskeletal dysfunction.

This encompasses everything from poor desk and computer set up, incorrect lifting techniques to repetitive activities of everyday life and work.

Your chiropractor can perform a comprehensive postural assessment, addressing biomechanical dysfunction as well as changes that can be made to your workspace or lifestyle that will reduce pain and improve day to day function and productivity.
