Relieve Your Pain

 

The initial phase following your First Appointment, is to relieve your pain as quickly as possible. Generally, pain is a result of the inflammatory process occurring around the affected joint that is dysfunctional in the way it moves.

Reducing inflammation is usually achieved within 1  – 6 treatments with the following Chiropractic Methods, relevant to your complaint. The types of treatments used to achieve this are:

  • Gentle spinal or joint manipulation or mobilisation: either manually or through the activator tool
  • Specific muscle tension release through stretching, trigger point therapy or dry needling
  • Kinesiology taping for reduction of inflammation but also to inhibit or facilitate specific muscles involved
  • Home stretching program to assist in relaxing tight, overactive muscles
  • Home pain relief program through ice or heat regime specific to your complaint
  • Reassurance and Education on your complaint

Following this initial phase of treatment, our aim is then to rebuild your body to overcome muscle imbalances and weaknesses that may result from the chronic or acute pain event.
