Spinal and extra-spinal adjustments
This is a process where your Chiropractor adjusts a particular segment of your spine or alternatively a joint of your appendicular skeleton. In order to achieve/ restore maximal movement of that joint.
Therapeutic procedure whereby the Chiropractor chooses the applicable sized needle to place in the effected, inflamed muscle. This method of dry needling is used to rupture small blood vessels in and around the muscle to stimulate blood flow, this combined with neurological effects to decrease muscle spasm. The increase in blood flow to the muscle optimizes regeneration.
Soft tissue therapy
A process that requires the doctor to apply deep pressure onto the effected, inflamed muscle. This is used to stimulate the area along with increasing blood flow allowing adequate oxygen and nutrients back to the inflamed muscle.
Strapping (Rigid, Elastic and Kinesio-strapping)
This is used by our Chiropractors to support and rehabilitate unstable joints and injured musculature. There are different techniques along with different strapping materials we use for the various diagnoses.
Electric Modalities (Ultrasound, IFC and TENS)
Our Chiropractors use these methods for muscular rehabilitation and treatment on muscular strains, which decreases swelling of ligament, tendon and muscular injury. This stimulates the numerous mechanoreceptors at effected site and has a positive feedback on pain control gate theory.
Spinal Stability Programmes (Core) and Rotator Cuff strengthening programmes
These programs consist of specialized exercises to ensure and promote hyper-tonicity of the musculature in the targeted areas.
