Chiropractic adjustments are considered effective for correcting dysfunction & releasing the joints of the spine & pelvis. However; generally speaking, chiropractic adjustments do not address chronic muscle tension & imbalance’s that are a result of our sedentary lifestyles, stress, injury etc… which is often a major factor leading to back pain & injury. Myotherapy complements chiropractic, as it  is a corrective form of massage & bodywork designed to put length & function back into the critical muscles that support the spine, pelvis & posture.

Chiropractic

Chiropractic is a health care profession focused on the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders, with a large focus on the spine through a variety of manual techniques. Chiropractic is a five-year university degree with an emphasis on chiropractic skills, anatomy, physiology & diagnosis. Chiropractic seeks to reduce pain and improve the functionality of patients through ‘adjustments’ which are regarded as safe and effective therapeutic intervention for the joints of the spine and pelvis.

Myotherpy

Myotherapy (SLM) is a specialised form of corrective massage & bodywork that puts length, function and balance back into the muscles. The techniques in myotherapy (SLM) are designed to correct critical muscular imbalances, this is achieved by working the muscles of the whole body in a deep and comprehensive manner, with a typical session lasting an hour. The pressure is always adjusted to your needs, and the therapist moves around the body so not to over work any one area, but enough to get an effective release.

Combination

By first releasing and balancing your muscles across your whole body prior to Chiropractic treatment this allows for a more balanced and healthy muscular system to support the chiropractic adjustments so they ‘hold’ longer. This wholistic approach is not offered anywhere else in Australia.
