What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a health care discipline based on the scientific premise that the body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. Every cell, tissue, and organ of your body is controlled by the nervous system which includes the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body. "Chiropractic" comes from the Greek word Chiropraktikos, meaning "done by hand."

The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the skull, spine, and pelvis) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the restoration and preservation of health.

The skull protects the delicate tissues of the brain. The moving bones of the spine protect the intricate communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots. If these nervous system pathways are impaired, malfunction of the tissue and organ function throughout the body may result.

Chiropractic also places an emphasis on nutrition and exercise, wellness and healthy lifestyle modifications. The chiropractic approach to better health is to locate and help reduce interferences to your natural state of being healthy.

Advanced Biostructural Correction (ABC)™

Advanced Biostructural Correction (ABC)™ is a form of chiropractic care that is relatively new to Australia. In practicing the ABC™ technique, your chiropractor will examine your spine to see the issues and injuries that your body is unable to correct on its own. He will narrow down the precise points in your body where mechanical stress is taking place and use adjustment techniques to release it. However, your chiropractor will only adjust your body in areas where the body is unable to correct itself.

Some patients may find that they re-experience some mild symptoms related to their previous injuries or physical conditions during what’s known as the unwinding process. This is a temporary state and part of unlocking and removing the traumatic events that your body has experienced.

ABC™ practitioners believe that your body compensates for injuries throughout the course of your life and that the impact of these compensations continue to accrue over time. The goal of ABC™ is to ‘unwind’ your body back through these problem areas and ‘unlock’ each area of tension and injury until it is completely corrected.

The end goal is to remove mechanical stress from your body’s skeletal, muscular and tissue structures. Successful therapy will balance your body, improve your posture and thus reduce mechanical stress from the nervous system tissues and reduce or clear your pain. It will also provide your body with a greater capacity for self-correction when injury and other issues arise.

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.

Total Body Modification (TBM)

We are continuously faced with ever-increasing health challenges resulting from the dangerous pollution of our environment. If we cannot change our environment, we must learn to live within it by eliminating the effects on our health.

Using Kinesiology muscle testing and body access points TBM aims to eliminate the roadblocks to health and turn on the healing ability of the body. It is a simple process that deals with FUNCTIONAL PHYSIOLOGY rather than cadaver physiology to tap into the body's bio-computer and read functional programs. We recognize that certain conditions produce predictable subluxation patterns in the spine.

Corrections are usually made by means of respiratory spinal correction of these patterns, or by soft tissue or joint manipulation. TBM may sometimes look like magic to the uninformed, because when the right thing is done to the right body, at the right time, miracles happen!

TBM works in synergy with Applied Kinesiology.

Retained Neonatal Reflexes

In the womb and in early life, when the decision making process has not fully developed, your brainstem has several reflexes called 'primitive' or ‘neonatal’ reflexes. They help you to grow properly and safely.

For example, they help you in the birthing process, breast feeding and gripping onto things. As you mature these reflexes are no longer needed so they take a ‘back seat’ and the higher brain takes control.

Sacro Occipital Technic (SOT)

Sacro Occipital Tecnic was originally developed in 1925 by Dr M.B DeJarnette. It is so named because of the relationship between the Sacrum (base of the spine) and the Occiput (base of the skull). SOT is a gentle technique that aims to correct the pelvis, spine, skull, extremities and organs. This is a technique that looks at the entire body’s mechanics and neurology in an organized and practical way.

An SOT practitioner will use various body indicators, which indicate areas to treat, and the effectiveness of the treatment. It looks at the alignment of the pelvis, which is the foundational support of the human skeleton, and the spine which holds the body upright, and protects and supports your nervous system and organs.

The gentle adjustments done by an SOT practitioner aim to remove interference to the nervous system and allow movement of cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) to the brain and spinal cord.

SOT is a fantastic technique when working with children, pregnant women and those who prefer the low force type of chiropractic.
