Chiropractic is a drug and surgery free approach to health care that is focused on nerve, joint and musculoskeletal body systems with emphasis on spinal function. Most commonly people seek chiropractic care for joint and muscular problems such as low back pain, neck pain, headaches as well as upper or lower limb pain. Chiropractors assess these musculoskeletal and spinal dysfunctions and any associated effects that may occur within the nervous system. Impairment within the nervous system due to spinal dysfunction may lead to a number of other health concerns.
Chiropractors aim to remove this dysfunction by use of a chiropractic adjustment which can be delivered in a number of ways. Traditionally, adjustments are delivered by hand with the use of a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust to restore movement to joints within the body that may not be functioning correctly. This type of adjustment can release gasses within the joint producing a popping sound. Alternative methods involve special tools and tables designed to correct spinal dysfunction which will be discussed with you if required.
Dry Needling & Active Release Technique (ART)
Musculo-skeletal dry needling is used to break up musle, ligament and fascial tension and increase blood flow to enhance the body's natural healing process.
Active Release Technique (ART) is a movement based muscle release technique that involves shortening and lengthening the muscle under pressure to break up scar tissue and muscle tension.
Applied kinesiology (AK) is also know as muscle strength testing, a method of diagnosis and treatment based on the belief that various muscles are linked to particular organs and glands, and that specific muscle weakness can signal distant internal problems such as nerve damage, reduced blood supply, chemical imbalances or other organ or gland problems.
