Chiropractic Techniques

The techniques used in our practice are safe, effective and comfortable for the whole family, suitable for newborn babies to seniors. We use a variety of techniques which are dependent on each individual, however our primary techniques include:

Impulse Adjusting Instrument

Paediatric Instrument Adjusting

What is the Impulse Adjusting Instrument?

The Impulse Adjusting Instrument used in our office is one of the most advanced technologies to become available to chiropractors to assist in the delivery of chiropractic adjustments. Just as lasers have replaced scalpels in some surgeries, the adjusting instrument can replace some of the traditional manual methods of chiropractic.

The Impulse Adjusting Instrument is patented and registered with the Therapeutic Goods Administration of Australia (TGA). It has been specifically created to deliver gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to the joints of the spine and extremities to relieve pain and restore function.

The Impulse Adjusting Instrument is controlled by high-tech micro-computer circuitry housed within the device that produces a controlled force used by chiropractors to treat different areas of the body. In short, the impulse instrument gently and quickly moves the problem joint until the sensor detects that a correction has been made.

Years of research have gone into the development of the Impulse Adjusting Instrument to create gentle chiropractic adjustments that are safe and effective for patients of all ages. The Instrument has a specific setting for Paediatric care.

Trigenics

Trigenics is a technique which uses the assessment and treatment of muscles and their associated nerves to help relieve pain, increase strength and movement, and enhance performance.

It uses muscle strength testing to determine poor nerve communication and unbalanced muscle-pull patterns, and then provides specific treatment to the muscle to restore normal muscle function. Sometimes adjustments of the spine are not enough to restore muscle imbalances. This is where Trigenics becomes a very useful tool.

Trigenics can help people suffering from a large variety of neuro-musculoskeletal and repetitive strain conditions, and athletes and training clients struggling with advances in their training and performance outcomes.

Trigenics is safe, gentle and non-forceful and can be used effectively on a broad range of patients including children and seniors. It is also an excellent alternative to, or works well in combination with spinal joint adjustments.

Trigenics is currently practiced by over 2000 doctors, therapists and trainers in 20 countries worldwide. The complex procedures used in Trigenics are believed to retrain the way the brain communicates its movement and/or pain signals with the muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints of the body.

Cold Laser Therapy

Cold Laser Therapy

Cold Laser Therapy is a very exciting addition to our practice and works beautifully with Chiropractic Care by reducing swelling and inflammation, boosting oxygen levels in the blood, decreasing pain, and speeding the healing response.

In a recent study comparing three groups of people experiencing neck pain, the group that had both chiropractic care and Cold Laser Therapy had double the improvement compared to those who just received chiropractic or laser therapy on its own.

When the Cold Laser is placed over injured cells or sick cells, the light energy is absorbed by the cell which stimulates an increase in energy production. Increased energy within the cell allows it to transform into a healthy state.

Targeting the Cold Laser on scar tissue helps soften the fibrotic nodules, helping it return to its stronger more flexible state. This allows for a more complete healing, reducing the chance of re-injury later.

Cold Laser Therapy, also known as Low-Level Laser Therapy, does not heat tissue and so you don’t really feel anything while the treatment is being performed. You may feel a slight tingling sensation if the area being treated is highly inflamed.
