What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care involves delivering spinal adjustments to the spine that have been examined by the chiropractor through orthopaedic range of movement, radiology exam (x-ray or MRI /CT scan) and a though patient history to diagnose and form a working care plan tailoredfor the patient. Chiropractic care may also involve many other natural forms of health care including stretches and an exercise program, nutrition advice, home care, ergonomic and postural advice, lifestyle and health education. We also refer to medical and allied health when this is required for the patient. At one chiropractic health the adjustment style is designed to suit the patient in type of adjustment we utilise manual, SOT (Sacrooccipital), activator, TPT drop piece and NET emotional release. We also perform muscle release techniques and soft tissue massage as part of our treatment regime adjustments to make it comfortable and the best result for you.

Chiropractic is a health profession which diagnoses, manages and prevents spinal, bone and muscular disorders and their effects on the nervous system and general health.
Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that the nervous system, consisting of the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body, control the function of every cell, tissue, organ and muscle. The way our bodies heal and repair is reliant upon a functioning movable spine, posture and most importantly your nervous system. As the nervous system and brain is the main coordinating system and distribution centre for healing and repair in your body. How your nerves and brain function depends upon how well your spine moves. Throughout life the human spine and nervous system is subject to stress and deterioration from factors such as repetitive activities, trauma, poor posture habits, lack of nutrition, chemical stress ie; toxins, drugs, emotional stressors and an increasing sedentary lifestyle which is becoming epidemic with technology today.
If there is interference to the delicate nerves and communication of the nervous system controlling the impulses, the stage is set for pain and dysfunction of the body which may manifest in tight muscles, pain, inflexibility, ill health, poor mobility or generally being unwell with little energy to get through your day. Chiropractic aims to enhance the function of your spinal biomechanics by removing spinal signal interference (subluxations), and enhancing your body’s ability to heal and function at its optimal performance, so you move, feel better, have greater energy, reduce pain and perform to your best every day. Studies show chiropractic are is a safe and gentle way to restore mobility and is an effective treatment for low back pain, headaches and migraines, sciatica, neck and shoulder injuries as well as many other musculoskeletal symptoms.
A subluxation is a miss alignment of the vertebra that creates pressure or irritation to the various nerves in the spine which can cause a wide variety of symptoms most commonly pain, soreness, weakness and muscle tension. The vertebral subluxation.
Neuro Plastisity Chiropractic neurology involves reactivating neural pathways in the brain, by stimulating other parts and movement of the body. Dr Ted Carrick DC PHD has performed a lot of research into the changes of the brain after traumatic brain injury, he also has a wellness centre and is the director and works as a highly trained chiropractic neurologist. His work involves spinal adjustments and brain stimulating therapies that directly affect the nervous system to improve balance, coordination and cognition (memory). Chiropractic adjustments improve communication in the central nervous system with the ability of nerves to re-learn new movement patterns, this is what we call neuro plastisity or learning.
