What We Offer
Chiropractic Care is based on the principle that the body is a holistic unit that needs to work in unison, in order to achieve full functionality of the nervous system. Through identifying abnormalities in the alignment of the spine, this can also uncover other problematic symptoms in the body i.e. presented in the form of a headache.
Dry needling – is the application of an acupuncture needle into a trigger point, tight muscles or injury. This has great application in reducing pain and tenderness for a variety of conditions including trigger points, muscle tears, headaches and other acute injuries.
Kinesiology encompasses holistic health disciplines which use the gentle art of muscle monitoring to access information about a person’s well being. Originating in the 1970’s, it combines Western techniques and Eastern wisdom to promote physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. Kinesiology identifies the elements which inhibit the body’s natural internal energies and accessing the life enhancing potential within the individual.
This is where I help people. I get people moving better, improving range of motion, stability and function. People often report they feel “lighter” and they are “walking on a cloud”. When your body, particularly your spine, is restricted or tight, it is like walking around with a spare tyre. This makes it harder for your body to move, creating stiffness, less energy and the feeling of being older than what you are. This is particularly important with your spine, because all movement is created from your spine. For this reason the spine is particularly sensitive to being tight, because we use the muscles and joints all the time.
How well your body is utilizing these muscles is what determines your posture. Posture is stationary snapshot as to how well your body is holding itself up against gravity. Bad posture will transfer into every movement you do leading to poor function and a greater chance of injury. If you slouch or have rolled shoulders, this will decrease the space for the tendons of your shoulder to move through, potentially leading to shoulder impingement issues. Similarly your posture can create unnecessary tension on your neck and back leading to headaches and lower back pain. Through the use of manual therapies and rehabilitation exercises we are able to correct your posture, allowing you to train harder getting better results with your training and get rid of that old, stiff feeling every morning.
