The core of chiropractic care is the holistic approach of treating health issues with safe, gentle adjustments. Primarily, chiropractors focus on the relationship between the spine and the nervous system, and how this impacts your health. We assess the body as a whole, and work equally with joints, nerves, muscles and bones in order to restore body balance and relieve pain.
Chiropractic can treat a plethora of health conditions, such as:
At Sandgate Family Chiropractic, we believe in employing the most up-to-date, proven methods of care. These correction methods are safer, more comfortable and more effectual than ever before.
This useful adjunct has proven very effective for injury rehabilitation. This selective approach speeds up recovery time, accelerates healing and provides quicker pain relief. The process involves targeting specific points on the body which are known as ‘trigger points’ (tender, tight spots in the muscles). Dry Needling is usually very effective in treating a range of health conditions ranging from headaches to sciatica while also delivering fast symptomatic relief and repair for muscle injuries.
At Sandgate Family Chiropractic we are fortunate to have an automatic Flexion Distraction machine. This gentle, effective treatment is designed specifically for lower back pain & sciatica issues and improves posture and motion while also alleviating pain. Simply, it works with the patient lying on the table and being gently stretched or ‘tractioned’. The table then flexes the lower back (lumbo-sacral) area of the spine which opens the joints, increases disc space, and restores motion. This method relieves any nerve irritation and subsequent discomfort in the affected and associated areas.
Biomesotherapy is a therapy which stimulates the body by injecting a sterile saline solution under the skin. This solution is the same as the body’s fluid composition and stimulates deeper organ systems known as a cutivisceral reflex arc. Oral homeopathic medicines are given simultaneously which focus upon the organ or tissue requiring treatment. Most people, especially those who are apprehensive about injections are pleasantly surprised when they realise the needles are very fine and more like acupuncture needles. This method of treatment is an alternative for pain management and your practitioner will decide if Biomesotherapy is appropriate for your needs. While there is pain relief, it is important to realise that Biomesotherapy does not suppress symptoms, but simply reorganises the body’s information to support a healing response.
The effects of poor posture, accidents, injuries and stress can take years to become known and obvious. Those from all walks of life are exposed to the risks which can eventually lead to impaired health levels. Treatment is directed at correcting misalignments throughout the spine to improve flexibility and help prevent reoccurrence. Benefits of initial corrective care are relief from discomfort, improved energy levels, return of flexibility & improvement in joint mobility. The estimated healing time for corrective care is generally a minimum of 6-12 weeks.
Once your condition has stabilised, you will move into rehabilitative care. The primary objective is to identify and correct any underlying issues which may be the cause of your discomfort. Just as accumulative health issues may have taken years to build up, rehabilitation can, for some people, take years to correct these problems. Rehabilitative care is a substantial step forward in the natural progression to wellness care.
At the core of chiropractic care, we are promoters of optimal health. Wellness care focuses on encouraging people to reach goals that enhance their quality of life and independence. Regular check-ups and adjustments maintain ideal levels of health, and prevent the relapse of conditions and symptoms. We believe in educating and assisting in the promotion of the essential components; wellness- nutrition, exercise, rest, and a positive attitude.
At Sandgate Family Chiropractic, your health is our utmost priority. We deliver safe, gentle chiropractic therapy to those of all ages, from the youngest of children to the elderly. If you are interested in finding out more about how we can help you, please contact us.
