    Your First Visit: Initial Consultation

    On your first visit we will take a full history plus carry out a postural analysis. We will also check to see how your spine is moving and conduct any indicated orthopaedic and/or neurological tests related to your presenting condition. This appointment will take approx. 45mins.

    Report of Findings and First Adjustment

    After the initial assessment we will make an appointment for you to come for your report of findings. At this apppointment we will discuss with you what information we gathered from your intial assessment, what is involved in a chiropractic adjustment session, how you may feel after your first adjustment and agree a suitable plan of chiropractic care for you.

    At this point you can receive your first chiropractic adjustment – this appointment including first adjustment will also take approx 45 mins.

    Chiropractic Adjustment Appointments

    The amount of times you may need to come for chiropractic care will depend on a number of factors such as; the severity of the condition, how long you have been experiencing pain and reduced function, your age, lifestyle and your commitment to following your chiropractic care plan. Your individual plan of care will be agreed at your report of findings.

    Chiropractic care plans begin with adjustments to alleviate presenting symptoms, moving on to corrective care to achieve realignment and stabilisation of the spine.

    Chiropractic care can continue at regular intervals after the initial and corrective stages to maintain good spinal health.

    Chiropractic adjustment appointments are 15 mins approx [this may differ depending on individual’s needs].

    Advanced Biostructural Correction

    Advanced Biostructural CorrectionTM (ABC) is a chiropractic technique focusing on postural assessment & correction. We like to refer to it as structural healthcare. It assesses the body’s ability to support itself in standing and seated posture and make corrections that the body cannot self-correct. This statement ‘making corrections that the body cannot self-correct’ is important to the principle of ABC as many of the issues that cause pain and immobility are a result of compensations the body has formed to try and adapt to a problem. For example, a shoulder or neck problem may well come from an issue in the lower back, and ABC uses a specific testing protocol on the spine to assess what is causing biomechanical instability in the body.

    As posture becomes more stable and self-supporting, the function of the body improves and symptoms related to poor body mechanics and neurological tension improve.

    Deep Tissue Massage

    Often, deep tissue massage is of benefit, either on its own, or in addition to chiropractic treatment. This will usually be area specific, with the aim of reducing localised muscle tension and improving movement.

    Dry Needling

    ‘Dry needling’ or ‘western acupuncture’ as it is sometimes known is a very effective way to alleviate muscle tension and pain. Inserting acupuncture needles around muscle ‘trigger points’ increases the flow of blood to the affected area, as well as affecting the nervous system to moderate pain.

    Acupuncture is often used by chiropractors to compliment adjustments.

    Rehabilitation

    At Rebalance our aim is to support you in your goal to maintaining long term health. We use Pilates based exercises to develop strength and stability in the core muscles that support the spine and pelvis. It is an excellent way to improve fitness, strength and posture and is a great way to exercise for people of all ages and abilities.

    Pilates can help to correct muscle imbalances in the body and correct dysfunctional movement patterns and is therefore ideal as a form of rehabilitative exercise following injury or management of conditions such as osteoporosis or osteoarthritis.

    Carly has completed Level 1 training with the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute which is specifically designed for health care professionals to teach Pilates in a rehabilitation/clinical setting.
