Chiropractic Health

Jun 10, 2018 | Chiropractic


Chiropractic is a health profession concerned with the diagnosis, management, and prevention of mechanical disorders in the body. A chiropractor aims at minimising the effects these disorders have on an individual’s brain and nervous system, and overall experience of health. Although the spine is a large focus, a chiropractic is well skilled to look at other areas of the body.

Chiropractic care is aimed at removing restrictions and limitations in the body, through specialised adjusting techniques, that may create change in your physical health. This type of care may create healthy movement and alignment that maximises a person’s inbuilt potential to function with less restriction.
Techniques used include:

  • Joint manipulation and adjustments
  • Joint mobilisation
  • Soft tissue release
  • Reflex-based treatments
  • Activator (instrument) method
  • Craniosacral therapy

Chiropractic treatment is recommended for both pain and performance. If long-term or excessive limitation and loading has resulted in pain, a chiropractor can give relief. For people with performance goals, treatment can aid healthy and efficient movement in order to maximise your training and competitive events.

Like a dental check-up, a chiropractic assessment is recommended at least once every 4-6 weeks and more frequently for people with specific concerns or demands of their body.

Chiropractic is for all ages from newborns to over 90s, we see them all! Give chiropractic care a try if your child having problems eating, sleeping or pooing.

We as chiropractors at The Living Well Studio enjoy working as a team with other practitioners such as physiotherapists, massage therapists, and Pilates instructors to create a balanced management program. Programs include both active therapy (where you are performing the therapy) and passive therapy (where you are receiving the hands-on input from the practitioner).

Our chiropractors are happy to call if you have specific questions in regards to treatment, just let our friendly reception team know.

COVID-19

As per the government health guidelines on the 22nd of March 2020 non essential services will be closed. This does not include us. While we are still open for our usual services we will be practicing strict and heightened hygiene measures during this time to prevent further spread of COVID-19.

From the PM’s address today, we want to be clear we are not a gym. We are a health care practice, that provides services to optimise health and reduce pain from musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. Our studio team are ensuring complete high grade sanitisation of props and equipment that will only be single person use for each session, and ensuring social distancing. The staff and studio have had no connection to the COVID-19 at this time.

As per the government health guidelines we will not allow access to our services if you answer “yes” to any of the below:

Have you been overseas in the last 14 days?
Have you been in contact with anyone who tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days?
Do you have a dry cough, shortness of breath, fever or sore throat?
If answered yes to any of the above, please call the COVID-19 hotline on 1800 020 080.

We ask patients who are at risk to please let us know before your appointment so we can discuss your position. This includes immune-suppressed, the elderly and those who have been in high-risk areas. We also ask that you call the clinic if you do develop COVID-19 or have come in contact with someone who has so we can act according to the government recommendations.

For all treatments, our linen is being changed for every client and a wipe down of all equipment used. We ask that you remain in your car until your treatment time to minimise patient to patient contact in the waiting area. We also ask that you use ‘tap and go’ for your payment method rather than cash. Also we will not require you to sign your health fund slip to minimise cross use of pens between staff and patients. All our door handles and surfaces are regularly being cleaned during the day.

We ask everyone who comes in for group therapy sessions.

Bring a large towel and socks.
Keep 1.5m distance between yourself and others.
Wash your hands before and after the class.
If you need to cough or sneeze, cover your face and wash or sanitise hands immediately.
If you wish to wear gloves we have them available for you.
Online and Telehealth will be an option in the very near future….watch this space.

We are understanding of each and everyone’s individual position and we deeply care for your health and encourage everyone to take steps to keep strong and healthy at this time. Please feel free to call or email our staff to voice your concern and receive guidance. We are dedicated to informing you of our position and future movements in relation to Covid-19.

Thank you for your cooperation and support.
