Techniques and Treatments

How I Treat:

I use what I learnt at university as a foundation for my Chiropractic care that I give to patients.  I learnt that the most important thing is to look for the source of a person’s pain or what a person’s lifestyle is and how it can be improved for better health. I look at a person’s health in a triangle consisting of physical/structural, nutritional/chemical and emotional/mental states. Therefore when treating someone, all of these states need to be analyzed and addressed.The body is a profoundly complex structure and its role is to survive. This is best achieved by a body that achieves homeostasis (a balanced body) and is functioning optimally. Any interference in this and the body will find its best way to survive through compensation. The body will also look to find the easiest way to do things and act in the way you want it to. This is why I place an emphasis on body awareness.Body awareness is the understanding of where your body is in space. If you don’t have this then you could be doing things all day and sleeping at night in the least optimal way. For example you could have a bad posture, be sleeping in a poor way or be exercising incorrectly.Another important aspect is to look at prevention before cure. Why should you be in pain or wait so long before going to see your health professional? Surely it would make more sense to check up and maintain a body that is functioning optimally. Therefore prevention and maintenance should always be undergone to ensure the body is always working at it’s best before it has to scream out to you in pain that it needs help.Now you can see that the way I treat is to look at every person individually and see what are the needs of this person and give them care that tailors to them having addressed all aspects of their health and life to give the best comprehensive treatment possible.

I use a combination of treatment techniques in a relaxed setting including:

  • Chiropractic Techniques (Diversified Adjustments, Mobilizations, Spinal Drop Pieces & Activator Method)
  • Deep Tissue Sports Massage
  • Dry Needling
  • Electrotherapy
  • Kinesiotherapy Tape
  • Stretches & Exercise
  • Body Awareness
  • Home Rehabilitation
