Chiropractic adjustments restore proper alignment to your spine. Correct alignment removes pressure from your nervous system, allowing you to function well and heal naturally.
We will work with you to identify and correct the cause, rather than just focussing on symptoms. Our aim is to provide quality care to have you feeling and functioning at your best in the most efficient and effective way possible.
The techniques used at Vital Flow include SOT (Sacro-Occipital Techique), Activator, Thompson Drop and Diversified to provide a specific approach to each individual need. Whilst effective, some people prefer not to have manual “cracking” adjustments performed on their spine and in some instances it is not clinically recommended. We use a range of techniques and approaches that can be both manual and light force to suit your preference and what would be most beneficial to your body. We also utilise cranial, TMJ, kinesiology and organ reflex work to assist your body to function at it’s best.
In this appointment we will go through a thorough history to determine what factors may be affecting your health. Your chiropractor will then complete a physical assessment including orthopedic, neurological, postural and spinal examinations.
Following this, usually you will receive your first chiropractic adjustment.
In your second visit we review the results of your physical assessment as well x-ray findings if they were required. From there you will be given some recommendations that will assist your to reach your health goals in the most efficient manner possible. These recommendations will be tailored specifically to you and can include stretches, ergonomics, stress management tools and diet changes.
After your first two visits, each ongoing appointment builds on the one before. The aim is to relieve stress in the spine and nervous system and restore normal function. Healing is not a linear process so it’s important to remember that pain is not the only (or best) indication of how your body is progressing. Your chiropractor will be assessing objective measures like posture changes, neurological indicators, muscle tightness, stress response and joint restriction as well as objective pain findings to track your progress.
