- Chiropractic Manipulation
- Western Acupuncture / Dry Needling
- Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilitsation (IASTM)
- Activator & Impulse Adjusting Instrument
- Kinesio Taping
- Exercise Prescription & Rehabilitation
- Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilisation Based Rehabilitation
- Gym Based Assessment & Rehabilitation
Chiropratic manipulation is effective for treating joint restriction and dysfunction. Used to improve spinal mechanical function, reduce pain, and as a therapy for patients with sciatica and radiculopathy (pain, numbness or tingling in the back, arms or legs caused by irritation of nerves at the spine).
Western Acupuncture / Dry Needling
Is the use of acupuncture needles to treat muscles, connective tissue and pain. Able to reduce muscular knots (trigger points), taut bands, and scar tissue. Acupuncture has applications related to pain management and chronic pain.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation (IASTM)
Used to treat restrictions in muscles and fascia. Fascia is a connective tissue which surrounds each muscle, linking groups of muscles allowing the transfer of force between body parts to generate movement and power. Restrictions in fascia can impact mobility, flexibility, muscular function and result in pain.
Activator & Impulse Adjusting Instrument
The Activator and the Impulse Adjusting Instrument are mechanical and electro-mechanical treatment tools used to provide impulses / taps to muscles and joint capsules. Used to reduce muscular tension (hypertonicity) and improve joint function.
Kinesio Taping is a type of taping used to assist muscular function, reduce pain and improve physiological recovery. It can be applied in a variety of ways, depending on whether the aim is to facilitate / help a muscle function or reduce pain, amongst other applications.
Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilition
Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilition is based on a field of study called developmental kinesiology, which studies how we as humans develop the ability to move, crawl, stand, walk and run; from a baby to an adult. Through this area of study it has been possible to determine the foundations for creating stability, movement and power in the human body. This knowledge can be applied to assist the individual in pain recover more quickly, identify and correct patterns of movement which lead to pain and injury, and optimise performance in sports and exercise.
Gym Based Assessment
With the advantage of being located in a facility with a well-appointed gym on site, we're able to offer one to one gym-based assessment and rehabilitation. Being able to assess how you are performing your exercise routine means we can identify key areas to improve and optimise, and/or determine if an aspect of your routine would put you at risk for injury.
We can assess which exercises to modify or exclude if your in an injury phase, and if you would benefit from additional gym-based exercises to accelerate recovery or reduce the chance of injury recurrence.
25 Minute Session- is for looking at specific exercises in your routine and/or adding in a specific gym based rehabilitation exercise(s).
50 Minute Session- is to allow time for reviewing a larger portion of your exercise routine and for covering gym based rehabilitation or performance exercises as needed.
