Chiropractic instrument adjusting

Due to advancement in technology, in some surgeries, lasers have replaced scalpels. Advanced technology has also become available to Chiropractors to assist in delivering chiropractic adjustments.

Here at LRCC, as well as thousands of Doctors of Chiropractic around the world, we use the Impulse Adjusting Instrument. Years of research have gone into the development of the Impulse. A patented and FDA registered device, this was specifically created to deliver gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to the joints of the spine and extremities to relieve pain and restore function.

The device is controlled by micro-computer circuitry housed within, producing a controlled force that Chiropractors can use to treat different areas. Impulse is also specifically tuned to the natural frequency of the body that joints, muscles and nerves respond to, optimizing results for patients.

It gives a light tapping sensation on the area been treated. In most cases, the treatment is painless and after the adjustment, many patients feel relief of pain and improved mobility. Of course, results may vary from case to case and chronic conditions, inflammation or muscle spasms may delay these positive effects.

The gentle thrust is faster than the body’s tendency to tighten up and resist the adjustment, and the three different force settings make it safe and effective for patients of all ages… from babies to the elderly !

The word Chiropractic is derived from the Greek word “Chiroprakikos” meaning “done by hand”. As we are versatile to our patients’ needs and requirements, we also use other forms of adjustments, some of those that have been practiced for many many years with great success ( hands only) as well as other techniques, all with research value behind them.  On our examinations and treatments, we will be able to determine what best suits your body type for gentle and effective care.

Musculoskeletal acupuncture

Musculoskeletal Acupuncture is a newer form of acupuncture focusing on anatomical and neuro-physiological principles. This form of acupuncture is mostly used to treat muscular pain and dysfunction often represented by trigger points. Trigger points ( also known as ‘knots’) are tender and excessively tight areas found in muscles which often result in pain referral when compressed. Musculoskeletal acupuncture focuses on the release of these trigger points, resulting in both pain management and improved function of the muscle/joint involved. Musculoskeletal acupuncture improves circulation which is beneficial to an injured area that has compromised blood flow. By specific placement of the needles in the body it allows blood to flow to an injured area.

Sacro occipital technique

One of the functions of the sacrum is to pump Cerebro-spinal Fluid (CSF) from the base of the spine back up the spinal canal to the brain and throughout the nervous system. CSF acts as the circulatory system of the brain and spinal cord. The pelvic complex (incorporating the sacrum) forms the foundation support of the human skeleton which in turn supports all our organs, provides anchor points for our muscles and also protects our nervous system. SOT chiropractic care facilitates this balance for optimal health.

Custom fit orthotics shin splints heel spurs plantar fascitis posture imbalances

Bioman Balance_ImbalanceBioman Balance

Foot Levelers custom fit orthotics design orthotics that support the 3 interconnected arches of your foot, the plantar vault. They are individually designed for your unique postural problems. The structural support for the entire body’s equilibrium is gained from your feet’s plantar vault.
We believe that correcting imbalances in your feet can properly align your spine and pelvis. Orthotics have been known to help low back pain, plantar fasciitis, neck pain, hip pain, knee pain, ankle pain, shin splints and heel spurs. We scan your feet as part of your initial visit to assess if any imbalance to your spinal structure has begun at your feet.

Taping to help enhance sports performance stabilising strained muscles and sprained joints

Rocktape applied to a specific muscle group can help promote blood flow to the muscles, promote lymphatic drainage, assist in the removal of lactic acid and reduce muscle vibration. Rocktape is different in that it is engineered to mimic the same elasticity of the skin. Rocktape can stretch up to 190% of its original length and can provide support and stability while increasing blood flow.

Facial Pain

Orthopostural Dentistry (OPD) can be the answer to recurring chronic symptoms. OPD is a system of diagnosis and treatment determining airway and jaw alignment complications and the effects these complications have on postural distortions and other health systems of the body.

Not bouncing out of bed in the morning, snoring, grinding your teeth, chronic neck pain and/ or headaches, tinnitus, even back pain…. A combined approach of both Dentists and Chiropractors has proven exponentially more successful in treating OPD cases. If you or someone you know suffers from any of the above mentioned symptoms, OPD could be the answer. We are affiliated with Dentists at the forefront of this system of care and provide assessment and treatment in conjunction.

Developmental issues

harriet

Primitive Reflexes are a set of survival reflexes that appear early on in a child’s development. They are involuntary reflex movements. At a certain phase of development, these reflexes should naturally integrate into normal behaviour as the higher cortical areas of the brain develop, allowing smooth controlled voluntary movements.
Primitive reflexes should not remain, however if they fail to integrate, they may hinder :
Learning, Handwriting, Gross and Fine Motor Control, Balance, Concentration and Reading.
If voluntary reflexes have not been fully integrated, they are described as retained. These Retained Primitive Reflexes are commonly found in children with behavioural disorders, learning difficulties and developmental delay. Chiropractors have developed techniques for treating children with retained primitive reflexes. The focus is on structural aberrations of the skull, pelvis and peripheral skeleton.

Emotional Stressors

Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET) is a Chiropractic technique created using principles from multiple modalities including biology, physiology, psychology and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). NET is a tool used by Chiropractors to address the emotional components of disease and ill health. NET seeks to detect and alleviate the effect of emotional stressors on the body.NET can be used to alleviate the severity of painful conditions, phobias, anxiety, and depression.

Scoliosis

Scoliosis is a sideways bending of the spine greater than ten degrees, accompanied by rotation (twisting) of the spine. It is commonly first noticed in childhood or adolescence, and the curve often progresses rapidly as the child grows.

If left untreated, it can lead to severe spinal deformity and long term issues such as chronic pain and early spinal degeneration.

Examinations need to be performed during the ‘growth spurt” phase of development when the trunk of the body grows greater than the legs. This happens in females at 10 – 12 years of age and in males at 12 – 14 years of age. Scoliosis is far more prevalent in females than males.

Movable braces and specific scoliosis rehabilitation exercises are available, prescribed by experts, to decrease the scoliosis if caught during the growth spurt phase of development.

Helpful hints for parents:uneven shoulders, uneven waist or hips, leaning to one side, noticeable “S” shape bend of the spine, one prominent shoulder blade, a bump on the side of the spine with a forward bend.

Adults can acquire scoliosis as a result of the spine degeneration by incorrect loading. The damage is unable to be reversed, however, pain relief is possible and further damage can be slowed with Chiropractic treatment, rehabilitation and a home exercise programme.

Longueville Road Chiropractic is providing free consultations for girls 10 – 12 years of age and boys 12 – 14 years of age. Please phone for an appointment.

Many scoliosis cases can be cared for by Chiropractors and CBP has strong evidence of success here. The Sydney Scoliosis Clinic is at the forefront of corrective scoliosis care particularly for advanced cases. We assess our clients at LRCC and refer when required for corrective exercises (and bracing if required). This clinic has strong ties with CBP.
