Many people identify chiropractic solely with the adjustment, however it is but one clinical tool a chiropractor can use. At Canberra Chiropractic, we use a range of techniques to suit your presentation and care preferences.
We use a variety of techniques to suit you, ranging from the classical high-velocity low-amplitude adjustment to instrument-assisted and other low-force techniques.
- Instrument adjusting
Adjustments are well supported in the scientific literature, and are a safe and cost-effective treatment option.
Soft-tissue techniques refer to interventions aimed at improving the mobility and flexibility of the body's muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia.
A variety of techniques can be used, depending on your presentation and phase of care
- Myofascial release technique
- Trigger point therapy
- Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation
- PNF and PIR stretching
Rehabilitation and corrective exercises
It is important that you maintain and build upon your in-clinic improvements between visits. As such, you will be provided with some homework, to ensure optimum progress in regaining your health.
- Resistance exercises
- Mobility exercises
- Breathing exercises
- Cardiovascular exercise
We will happily liaise with your coach, trainer or other healthcare provider and/or recommend further options for you to continue active care.
Depending on your presentation, we may recommend that you utilise evidence-based ancillary modalities such as
- Nutritional supplementation
- Taping and/or bracing
This will be discussed with you, and may involve co-management with another health professional.
