Vitality Family Chiropractic

Chiropractors are spinal health experts. Helping to restore proper spinal biomechanics and improved nervous system function begins with a patient’s case history. This gives the chiropractor a background about your health, such as surgeries, accidents, the onset of your condition, and other details affecting your current health. 

After reviewing your history and discussing your specific problem, a thorough orthopaedic, neurological, and chiropractic examination is performed. X-rays may be taken to uncover structural and functioning problems associated with the spinal column. These examinations help identify areas of spinal malfunction and resulting nervous system deficit.

The findings of these examinations are explained and a plan of chiropractic adjustments may be recommended. Progress is monitored with periodical examinations and follow-up reports.

A chiropractic adjustment is the skill of using a specific force in a precise direction, applied to a joint that is fixated, “locked up”, or not moving properly. This adds motion to the joint, helping the joints to gradually regain more normal motion and function. The purpose of this safe and natural procedure is to permit improved spinal function, improved nervous system function, and improved health.

There are many ways to adjust the spine. Usually the chiropractor’s hands or a specially designed instrument delivers a brief and highly-accurate thrust. Some adjusting methods are quick, whereas others require a slow, constant or indirect pressure.

After years of university training and clinical experience, each chiropractor becomes highly skilled in the delivery of a variety of adjusting approaches.

Chiropractic treatment will often involve treatment of the soft-tissue i.e. muscles, tensons and ligaments. This is done either with the hands or with specialised instruments.

Your chiropractor is also expert in home-care exercise prescription and will often give you advice on how to maintain your health.

Spinal Pain

Back Pain: Evidence-based practice guidelines from international and multidisciplinary expert panels endorse chiropractic management for both acute and chronic non-specific low-back pain by recommending spinal manipulation, over-the-counter pain medication, exercise and early return to activities as the most effective and cost-effective management for most patients. Rest beyond a few days, passive machine therapies, prescription drugs and steroid injections are not recommended on account of ineffectiveness and/or side effects.


Limb Pain

Pain in the arms or legs may be related to your spine, in particular the nerves that come from your spine and supply the muscles and tissues of your limbs. Chiropractic can also treat problems affecting the shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees and feet.
