Chiropractors take an integrated and holistic approach to the health needs of their patients, considering physical, psychological, nutritional and social factors.
They provide care and support by restoring full function to the neuro-musculoskeletal system thereby reducing pain and disability.
Gentle chiropractic adjustments are controlled and specific, and may range from spinal manipulation to very gentle cranial work and other release techniques depending on your complaint. Our techniques will free up the interference on your spine, joints, nerves and muscles to get them working again. Most complaints are usually a result of a series of compensations that have often built up over years, therefore treatment is directed at the whole person and the chain reaction of problems. It may take some weeks to back track through these compensations, releasing and rebalancing the body, but it may be quicker, and depends on what you do between treatments!
As your complaint may have a lot to do with learned habits (e.g. your posture), lifestyle pressures (physical or emotional) or damage it is vital for us to give you advice on what you can do to help yourself – these may include stretching exercises, core postural muscle rehabilitation exercises, ergonomic and general postural changes, nutritional changes, or lifestyle coaching.
At Orchard Chiropractic Centre we have a wealth of proven experience at supporting and treating both Elite and Amateur Athletes. We recognise that all patients deserve an Elite standard of care and one that is unique and designed to their needs.
For Athletes Chiropractic Care is a core part of any training regime as it:
- Helps avoid injury
- Increases peak performance
- Aids a full recovery and prepares for the next challenge.
A Canadian research team included Chiropractic care in the rehabilitation programme of sixteen injured female long distance runners. Not only did these runners recover quickly, seven of them actually scored “personal best” performances while under Chiropractic care.
