A gentle form of managing lumbar disc injuries. The caudal (leg end) portion of the table flexes up to 15 degrees which results in gentle distraction of the inervertebral discs of the spine. The force is generated by the gravitational weight of the lower limbs while the involved area is contacted by hand.
A precise & gentle method of restoring joint function where manual manipulations are contraindicated. Joints can be adjusted in a neutral position which is safer with hypermobile joints. We use both the Impulse Instrument and the Activator instrument.
The Impulse instrument is an electronic version which can pruduce single and multiple impulses.
The Activator Instrument is a spring loaded mechanical instrument.
Diversified manual adjusting method using a quick hand movement to release joints. This usually involves an audible "crack" when the joint releases.
Sacro Occipital Technique
A low force system of correcting the spine utillising wedges placed under the pelvis. Very useful in managing acute injuries where other methods are limited by pain.
We use a sophisticated application providing exercise programs with video instructions on computer or mobile phone. Each program is tailored to your individual needs.
Many injuries occur when certain muscles required to stabilise and protect related joints fail to activate when performing specific tasks.
We have ultrasound imaging equipment which allows you to see your own muscle contracting in real time. This is very helpful in ensuring you are using the correct muscles to perform specific actions.
We utilsise the STMfish instrument for many soft tissue conditions.
The instrument helps to break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. It also stimulates circulation and lymphatic drainage to promote rapid healing of damaged tissue.
It is helpful for:
Low back and neck pain
Tennis or golfers elbow
Shoulder rotator cuff injuries
A specialised tape with patented adhesive pattern and longitudinal stretch characteristics, which is used to inhibit or activate muscles and promote lymphatic drainage. This is very popular with sports professionals who need support without restriction.
Our care is aimed at improving your stability, function and performance. After thorough consultation and examination, your chiropractor will select a technique that is best suited to your condition.
We will prepare a schedule of visits designed to optimise your results. Your care plan will be determined by factors such as: age, severity and chronicity of injury, and your work and recreational activities. Our goal is to get you back to your best and reduce the risk of re-injury.
