Chiropractic Care

If you think of how the body works, the brain is the supercomputer, which controls every function of your body. Nothing happens without the brain having a say in it. You’ve also got sensors in the skin for temperature, pressure, touch, and pain, and all those sensations.

Muscle Testing

As part of our care, we also use a lot of muscle testing, which is a tool to help identify poor function within the body based on decreased muscle function. Where you get a weakness, you just use any muscle, and you can test with any muscle and with restricted areas of the spine.

When we get a weakness there you know the sensors are switched off, so we adjust them and recheck them. And if it’s gone strong, then we know that what we’ve done has worked, and we knew it was the right place to adjust. Then it’s just the case of letting the body heal.

Adjusting woman's backOur Techniques

Our chiropractors use the following methods:

  • Diversified – This is our main, hands-on manual adjusting method.
  • Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT) – With this method, wedge-shaped blocks are used to address more complex situations and cases.
  • Activator – This instrument-assisted adjusting method uses light force and is ideal for people who can’t be adjusted or don’t want to be adjusted.
  • Thompson – For patients who can’t or don’t want to be adjusted, this gentler technique is ideal.

In addition to these methods, we offer taping and exercises, and other auxiliary techniques, to help complement a patient’s chiropractic care.
