Stages and frequency of care vary from individual to individual. From proactive and preventative care to pain relief and functional restoration. We’ll find the right treatment, tailored to suit you.

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic focuses on optimizing the function of the nervous system. The nervous system is the master controller of the human body. It controls every cell, muscle, organ and tissue. So everything your body does, whether you are consciously aware of or not, is controlled by your nervous system. Improving the function of the nervous system allows your body to reach its optimum potential and heal naturally, without drugs and surgery.

Clients of ours vary from those who are taking proactive and preventative measures to improve their health to those who are needing pain relief.

Receive a thorough history, examination (including full posture and nervous system assessment) and x-rays, if clinically indicated to determine the cause of your problems. From this assessment, an individual care plan will be tailored for you to achieve your goals. Along with your Chiropractic care, you will be provided with regular assessments to monitor your improved function. From here it will be determined what lifestyle changes you can incorporate to enhance your results.

How does the nervous system stop functioning optimally?

Lifestyle stressors build in the body over time and can eventually start to have an impact on how we are functioning. These stressors can be from physical, chemical or emotional sources. Examples of these are:-
 
Physical Stressors: Falls, accidents, injuries, surgeries, poor posture, sitting for long periods, poor sleep posture, poor positioning of a baby in utero and the stress of birth whether natural delivery or intervention to name a few.
 
Emotional Stressors: Balancing everyday life, work challenges, family pressures and commitments, relationship strains, school pressures, poor self-esteem and all other stressors that we put on ourselves.
 
Chemical Stressors: Poor diet choices, pollutions, lack of water, and lack of oxygen through poor breathing to name a few.
 
These stressors can accumulate in our nervous system over time and result in areas of dysfunction. It is important to realise that you may not feel the pain to start with when these stressors initially begin to accumulate. It can often take time for the pain to arise, hence why it is best to be assessed before pain arises to keep you at your peak performance!
