Assessment with your South Morang Chiropractor
At your initial consultation with our Chiropractor, we will review your full health history, perform an orthopaedic examination and postural analysis. If appropriate and clinically indicated we can take spinal X-rays, and with facilities on-site, this ensures you will save time and the images are available immediately for the Chiropractor to review and commence treatment sooner. Allow up to 30-mins for the initial consultation.
At following up Chiropractic appointments these involve the chiropractor asking how you responded following the last appointment, performing any assessment they feel necessary, and then giving treatment and advice. If the Chiropractor ever feels like he cannot help your complaint or that co-management is needed, they will refer to the most appropriate health professional to assist further.
TECHNIQUES SOUTH MORANG CHIROPRACTORS USE:
Treatment modalities as listed below may not be appropriate for every patient. Modalities will be deemed appropriate after the initial consultation where the Chiropractor reviews the information from the history, examination and appropriate imaging if applicable. Treatment typically consists of modern and traditional chiropractic techniques as follows:
Manual adjusting – high velocity, low amplitude thrust that results in cavitation (cracking & popping) of a joint.
Extremity adjusting – this involves the same concept as above but targets joints other than the spine, such as knees, ankles, wrists, feet, elbows and shoulders.
Soft tissue techniques – releasing tight muscles with an instrument called Arthrostim. This instrument produces a fast thrust and recoil motion that replicates a manual adjustment without the cavitation. It is shaped like a handheld drill and it’s two prongs on the end target areas in the joints and muscles
Activator – instrument assisted adjusting tool. This is a hand-held tool that our chiropractors use to administer an adjustment into the joint; that is also quicker than applying an adjustment by hand.
Trigger point therapy – using pressure with hands/elbow to target muscle knots.
Sacro-occipital technique (SOT) – this technique is predominantly centered around pelvic blocks which are two triangle shaped blocks that are placed under the pelvis.
Gonstead technique – this technique is also focused on high velocity, low amplitude adjusting by hand.
Your South Morang Chiropractor may use just one or many of these techniques as described above.
