Chiropractic Frequently Asked Questions


To understand the benefits we need to first appreciate that the spine is a sophisticated structure and in order for it to function well between the demands of our modern lifestyle, it is understandable that it requires a great deal of control. Due to over or under-use, spinal problems can often progress for a period of time without signs or symptoms, similar to that of tooth decay. These issues if not managed can lead to the loss of the intricate control system which our spine requires, causing unwanted injuries, joint restrictions, pain and extra burdens on an individual’s overall function.

“Spinal manipulation” or “chiropractic adjustment” is a gentle and controlled force that is manually applied to a restricted joint and is known to exhibit many benefits. These not only include the restoration of joint mobility and the alleviation of pain but also a positive impact on our nervous system and the control centre in our brain to restore control and function, thereby allowing our body to heal.

During pregnancy your body can sustain significant stress as it goes through many different changes. These stressors can present in the form of lower back pain and general aches or discomfort. Thankfully, chiropractic has historically shown positive effects on such presentations during pregnancy as well as improving the labour experience and recovery.

Similarly, such positive effects have been known to be true in the extremes of the demographic. The vast range of problems that are often associated with babies (birth trauma and nursing difficulties) and in the elderly population (poor balance, stiff and achy joints) can often profit from chiropractic care.

Massage Therapy Frequently Asked Questions

Massage can help improve the circulation of blood and lymph, reducing muscular tension, stiffness and spasms, increasing flexibility and range of motion. In addition, it can affect the nervous system through stimulation enhancing faster tissue healing, reducing formation of excessive scar tissue, overall creating a feeling of well-being and increasing the awareness of the mind-body connection.
Swedish massage is the most commonly used form of massage and uses long gliding strokes, kneading and friction techniques on the more superficial layers of muscles in the direction of blood flow toward the heart. It is used to promote general relaxation, improve circulation and range of motion, and relieve muscle tension.

Deep tissue massage is used to release chronic patterns of muscular tension using slow strokes, direct pressure or friction directed across the grain of the muscles. It is applied with greater pressure and to deeper layers of muscle than Swedish, which is why it is called deep tissue and is effective for chronic muscular tension.

Sports massage uses techniques that are similar to Swedish and deep tissue, but are specially adapted to deal with the effects of athletic performance on the body and the needs of athletes regarding training, performing and recovery from injury.

Neuromuscular massage is a form of deep massage that is applied to individual muscles. It is used primarily to release trigger points (intense knots of muscle tension that refer pain to other parts of the body) and also to increase blood flow. It is often used to reduce pain. Trigger point massage and myotherapy are similar forms.

Acupressure is a basic form of therapy that applies finger or thumb pressure to specific points located on the acupuncture meridians in order to release blocked energy along these meridians that cause physical discomforts, and re-balance the energy flow.
