What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a drug and surgery free modality of treatment concerned with the diagnosis, management and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system (spine); this includes the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health.

 

Chiropractors focus on the detection and correction of abnormal spinal function and its subsequent effect on how the nervous system controls and coordinates the body. Chiropractors in Australia are nationally registered and regulated healthcare professionals.

 

Chiropractors provide patient-centred care and work in partnership with their patients, by using shared decision making through a detailed consent process and using communication strategies that are tailored to the needs and preferences of the patient.

 

When treating infants and young children chiropractic care typically involves the use of low-force, low-amplitude techniques in contrast to those used on adults. Chiropractors are educated to modify spinal manual therapy to suit the age and presenting condition of a patient.

 

Chiropractic care is delivered by university educated, regulated healthcare professionals with a commitment to ensuring evidence informed care is provided to patients.

 

Over 300,000 Australians visit a chiropractor every week. Chiropractors play an important role in the spinal healthcare of everyday Australians by using a variety of non-surgical techniques, such as specific spinal adjustments, manual therapy and low-force intervention. Chiropractors offer a drug-free, hands-on approach to spinal healthcare.

Diversified Technique (DT)?

Diversified technique (DT) is an adjustment/manipulation technique used by majority of the chiropractors and is the most commonly used adjustment technique. Diversified chiropractic technique is characterized by a low-amplitude, high-velocity thrust which is also seen in other chiropractic and osteopathic manipulative techniques. Diversified chiropractic technique is thought to be the most basic chiropractic manipulative technique and is discerned from other techniques by its aim to restore proper alignment and movement of the spine and joints and restoring appropriate biomechanical function and also correct any subluxation. Additionally, Diversified methods have been technologically developed for adjustment of the extremity joints and it does wonders in treatment of sports as well as other type of injuries.

We’re different. We look at your health from a holistic perspective, not just traditional chiropractic. Our practitioners are trained and accredited in selected multidisciplines to help provide the safest, gentlest and most effective approach to your health. We can also use these various techniques to provide a service that is unique and comfortable for you. The techniques we use are outlined below.

Applied Kinesiology

Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a unique health care system because it recognises that correct physical, biochemical and emotional health are fundamental to optimal health.

Your nervous system controls all your cells, tissues and organs. On that basis, Applied Kinesiology Chiropractors use muscle testing to assess your nervous system function and find a solution to your health concerns.

In Australia, Applied Kinesiology is trademarked so the Australian public can identify accredited practitioners who are holistic primary health care professionals highly skilled in the assessment and application of structural correction, nutrition, cranio-sacral therapy, meridian therapy, visceral (organ) therapy, Retained Neonatal Reflexes®, immune system function and many other health aspects.

Neural Organisation Technique

Neural Organization Technique (Not)

Neural Organization Technique is a specialised branch of Kinesiology which works through the central nervous system to restore structural, bio-chemical and emotional balance. This discipline works with neurological priority systems. It uses acupressure, reactive muscle monitoring and co-ordinated respiration to address areas of concern.

 
Our neural organisation is what enables us to survive and function in every possible situation. It is self-healing, self-regulating and self-perpetuating but it can be thrown off balance by physical or emotional trauma or poor diet. To minimise damage and protect the body, there are 3 primal defence systems which the body employs when threatened in any way. The reactive muscle system of survival is designed to hold the skull and spine together and, literally, keep the head on the body when struck or injured, physically or emotionally. The dural defence system, in conjunction with the TMJ complex, acts to provide a protective cushion for the brain and the fascial defence systems causes a contraction of the skin and spine, forcing blood towards the muscles. All of the above in turn can result in a compromise of the internal systems of digestion, circulation, endocrine as well as immune responses as a person literally becomes locked into fight-or-flight.
 
In layman’s terms… Imagine yourself as an extraordinary computer, using the most advanced technologies in computer design. Your nervous system is the operating software. It keeps you functioning to optimum standards. Your digestive, endocrine and immune systems are the specialised programs, each one essential to a specific task. Your muscular and skeletal structure is the output, allowing your body to do the “talking”. Now, consider what would result if damage occurred to the programs! The first program errors might be imperceptible. However, compensating for those errors would soon lead to complications. Eventually you would have to make some serious corrections. You might even require a technician to reprogram a whole series of commands – and this is what an N.O.T practitioner does!
 
Trying to address structural or functional difficulties without addressing the relevant neurological short-circuiting is like changing a light bulb when the real problem is that you have blown a fuse.
 

Advanced Biostructural Correction (ABC)™

Forward is the enemy. This is the same reason you see the elderly bent forward. Have you ever wondered why there are no walkers for people that are bent backwards or to the right or left? Why are the walkers designed for people that are bent forward only? It’s because you never see people any other way. They are always forward. And now you know why. As more and more bones get pushed forward in a person over a lifetime, from common everyday activities, they get more stooped forward and can’t stand up straight…Even if they try.
 
Advanced BioStructural Correction™ (ABC™) addresses this sole issue. ABC™ corrects bones out of place that your body cannot self correct because there is no muscle or group of muscles that actually exist in the human body that can correct these malpositions. This is one of the huge factors that have been missing in health care. ABC™ has figured out every single bone in the body that has this “defect”, if you want to call it that, where the bone cannot self correct in every direction. The other factor that is critical in correcting bodies is meningeal releases.
 
Together by releasing the meninges and correcting ONLY the bones out of place that the body cannot self correct that day can the body unwind and almost go backwards through time reversing old injuries and restoring health like nothing else can.

Neural Emotional Technique

AN EXPLANATION OF NET

NET is a mind-body technique that uses a methodology of finding and removing neurological imbalances related to the physiology of unresolved stress.  NET is a tool that can help improve many behavioural and physical conditions.

WHAT MAY NET HELP WITH?

NET Practitioners are nearly unlimited in their ability to address the physical and behavioural stress-related conditions of their patients. These conditions include headaches, body pains, phobias, general anxiety, self-sabotaging behaviours, organ dysfunctions and so much more. It’s important to note that NET does not cure or heal the patient, but rather, NET removes blocks to the natural vitalism of the body, “allowing” the body to repair itself naturally.

HOW DOES NET WORK?

NET is based on the physiological foundations of stress-related responses. As discovered in the late 1970s, emotional responses are composed of neuropeptides (amino acid chains) and their receptors, which lie on neurons and other cells of remote tissues in the body. The neuropeptides are ejected from the neuron and carry the encoded “information” to other sites within the body. These neuropeptides are in a category of neurochemicals known as Information Substances (IS). IS’s are released at times of stress-related arousal and become attached to remotely-positioned neuroreceptors.

Significantly, this process also happens when a person recalls to memory an event in which a stress originally occurred. This is a key factor in the NET treatment. Thus, the physiological status of the body is emotionally replicating a similar physiological state that was found in the original conditioning event by the process of remembering.

Here’s a classic example of how a physiological response can be associated with a memory: Visualize a lemon . . . go ahead . . . try it. Now, think about cutting into that lemon — smell the lemony scent and see the juice running down the sides of the lemon. Now, squeeze some of the lemon’s juice into your mouth and take a big bite of the lemon. Is your mouth watering? If you’re like most people, it is, and what you’re experiencing is a physiological response to the memory of a lemon. The body’s response to stress works in a similar way.
