Chiropractic Treatment

  • Chiropractic Treatment

    Chiropractic is a health care discipline based on the scientific premise that the body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. These important functions are controlled by the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body.

    The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine, and pelvis) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.

     

    The skull protects the delicate tissues of the brain. The moving bones of the spine protect the intricate communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots. If these nervous system pathways are impaired, malfunction of the tissue and organ function throughout the body can result.

     

    Chiropractic also places an emphasis on nutrition and exercise, wellness and healthy lifestyle modifications.

     

    Chiropractic works by helping to restore your own inborn ability to be healthy. When under the proper control of your nervous system, all the cells, tissue, and organs of your body are designed to function well and resist disease and ill health. The chiropractic approach to better health is to locate and help reduce interferences to your natural state of being healthy.

  • Manual Therapy

    Mobilization is a form of stretching that is applied to stiff joints in order to optimize and restore range of motion, relieve pain and reduce muscle tension. This medically approved procedure performed by the doctor consists of small movements, usually applied as a series of gentle stretches in a smooth, rhythmic fashion to the individual's joints. Mobilizations may be administered in various degrees of pressure, depending upon the sensitivity and stiffness of an individual's joints.

  • Trigger Point Therapy

    Trigger points are small contractions/knots within a muscle. These are usually felt as little nodules within the muscle tissue that are quite tender to touch. People may not even be aware that they have trigger points until they are pressed on, or they may be the source of their local and referred pain. Trigger points are unique as they have the ability not only to cause pain and muscle dysfunction locally, but they are known for causing referred pain into different parts of the body. A common example we see in our clinic are trigger points associated with headaches. Often, patients headaches are caused by trigger point referred pain from the muscles in the neck and shoulder.

    Trigger Point Therapy involves applying controlled pressure over the nodule/knot in order to remove the nasty chemicals within the trigger point. This may elicit some discomfort and may even create referred pain. Usually this pressure is held until the pain starts to subside or even disappear completely. By deactivating the trigger pain we are able to normalise the tone (feel) of the muscle and reduce the patient’s pain and symptoms.

  • Sports injury rehabilitation

    Common injuries include joint and ligament sprains, muscle strains and overuse. The cause of injury will be analyzed according to different sports needs and clinical examinations. In addition to the management of acute injuries, specific sports training, helps patient recover as soon as possible, return to the original level of exercise, and reduce the chance of future injuries. In addition, Strength and Conditioning is also provided to enhance athletes' performance in accordance with sports needs and athletes' strengths and weaknesses.
