Chiropractic Care

Welcome to our chiropractic care world where we explain evidence-based treatments and the conditions we treat.

If you're experiencing any concerns with your muscles, joints, or bones, it's likely that a Chiropractor can provide some relief.

 

Deciding if you need to see a Chiropractor depends on your symptoms and the nature of your discomfort. Here are some signs that may indicate it's time to consider chiropractic care:

 

Persistent Back or Neck Pain: If you experience chronic or recurrent back or neck pain, especially if it's affecting your daily activities, a Chiropractor may help identify and address the underlying issues.

 

Limited Range of Motion: If you find that your joints are not moving as freely as they should, or if you have stiffness in your neck, shoulders, back, or other joints, chiropractic adjustments may be beneficial.

 

Headaches: Chronic headaches, especially tension headaches or those related to neck tension, could be alleviated through chiropractic care.

 

Postural Issues: If you notice changes in your posture, such as slouching or rounding shoulders, a Chiropractor can assess and provide guidance on improving your posture.

 

Sports Injuries: Whether you're a professional athlete or just enjoy staying active, a Chiropractor can help with injuries, strains, or sprains related to physical activity.

 

Sciatica Symptoms: If you experience pain, numbness, or tingling that radiates down your leg, chiropractic care may provide relief for sciatica.

 

Joint Pain: If you have discomfort or pain in joints such as the shoulders, knees, hips, or ankles, a Chiropractor may be able to help.

 

Recent Trauma or Injury: If you've been involved in an accident, suffered a fall, or experienced any trauma that may have affected your musculoskeletal system, seeking chiropractic evaluation is advisable.

Chiropractic Management

 

Chiropractors may address musculoskeletal causes of pain and biomechanical overloads through various interventions:

 

Advice:

Education relating to the presenting condition, the likely time frame of recovery, and the management plan. This will include activity modifications, sparing strategies and pain management tailored to you.

 

Passive care:

This is what we do in our treatments. This includes massage or soft tissue treatment, the use of adjustments or mobilisations when indicated, as well as ancillary interventions such as dry needling, tens, taping, and heat and cold therapies.

 

Active care:

This is what you do outside of our treatments. This includes rehab-specific exercises, range of motion, stretching and strengthening exercises as well as balance and proprioception training. 

 

Preventative:

This includes guidelines for nutrition, exercise, public health initiatives, fall prevention, management of comorbidities, and co-management with other healthcare professionals.
