What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic care is a non-invasive, effective and remarkably safe solution for a range of musculoskeletal injuries relating to the spine and extremities. It is a health discipline that involves restoring normal functioning back to the spine and nervous system.
Chiropractic helps by releasing the spinal joints that are restricted which in turn helps to re-establish normal motion back within that joint again. By doing so, the muscles that attach to these joints are then also able to relax, reducing the muscle tension felt all over the whole body. The re-establishment of spinal joint motion also helps to free up the pathway for nerve signals to be transmitted throughout the spine in a more efficient and uninterrupted manner.
Having good spinal health is more than just about being pain-free. It is about allowing the body to function at its optimum in situations that require peak performance – whether that may be at work or for sport.
What Techniques are Used?
Our Chiropractors are trained to utilise the following types of methods: Diversified Technique, Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT), Mobilisations, Drop Piece, Activator, Soft Tissue Therapy, Kinesio-Taping, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation (IASTM), and exercise prescriptions.
What’s That Noise?
The audible “click” or “crack” that is commonly associated with the adjustment is the sound of pressure being released from the joints. Contrary to popular belief, not all adjustments are accompanied by audible noise. Just because you do not hear the “click” or “crack” does not mean the adjustment was unsuccessful. The right movement and force are what determines the success of the treatment.
