The power that makes the body heals the body

Our Techniques

Chirolife Chiropractic use multiple adjusting techniques to help reduce nervous system interference and correct altered spinal biomechanics.  The adjusting techniques we chose are depending on your needs and preferences, from a very gentle adjustment to manual techniques.  A list of the techniques used at Chirolife Chirpractic are:

 

CBP Chiropractic adjusting technique.

Clinical Biomechanics of Posture® is the most researched and scientific chiropractic technique, emphasizing optimal postural and spinal alignment.

 

Applied Kinesiology

A technique that evaluates structural, chemical, and mental aspects of health by using a method referred to as manual muscle testing. This can help in our treatment plan by testing the muscles for strength and weakness.

 

Diversified

Diversified is characterised by a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust. Diversified is considered the most generic chiropractic manipulative technique and is differentiated from other techniques in that its objective is to restore proper movement and alignment of spine and joint dysfunction

 

SOT

Sacro Occipital Technique SOT is a method of normalising the relationship between the foundation of the spine and the top of the spine. By using gravity and your own body to effect correction, new healthier patterns of spinal function can result. Along with safe, consistent results, SOT is known for emphasising patient comfort.

 

Activator Methods®

This is a system of spinal evaluation and offers an alternative to manual manipulation of the spine or joints. This treatment method involves an activator instrument which is a small handheld springloaded instrument which delivers a small impulse to the spine.

 

Thompson

Thompson Technique uses a special table with several segments called drop pieces. With Thompson Technique, the table segments can be set up a fraction of an inch, so when the thrust is delivered, the table will drop. One of the benefits of Thompson technique is that the drop pieces assist the thrust therefore minimising the force used for the adjustment.

 

Gonstead

Named for its developer, we conduct a thorough evaluation using full spine X-rays and a heat-sensing instrument for accurate adjustments.

Paediatric Techniques

We also use a number of specialised pediatric techniques developed for analysing & adjusting our many baby and children patients. These specialist techniques are very different to those typically used on adults. Chiropractic care allows children to reach their maximum potential in all areas of their development. Chiropractic care can assist to help your child to grow straight, strong and healthy.
