Chiropractic Care, is a Health Care Profession that is mandated by the AHPCSA, which focusses on the Diagnosis, Treatment and Management of Spinal and Extremity conditions relating to the neuro-musculo skeletal system. ie. (Nerve, muscle, joint, tendon, ligament, cartilage, disc) trauma.
We follow an Integrative approach at the Clinic, utilizing the diagnostic and rehabilitive services of both Chiropractic Care and Soft Tissue Rehabilitation, so as to provide the patient with the therapeutic benefits of both professions.
All patients undergo a thorough orthopedic and neurological assessment when they present to the Clinic, so as to ascertain the diagnostic scope of their injury. Depending on the history, certain X-rays / scans may be ordered, after which treatment will begin.
Depending on the injury, treatment may involve soft tissue techniques like stretching, sports massage, dry needling, strapping, ischaemic compression, trigger point therapy etc. If joint and disc structures are injured, mobilisation, traction, manipulation and relocation techniques may be utilized.
The Spine and Joint Clinic use a number of Physical Medicine devices to facilitate healing, repair, so as to enable maximum recovery in the fastest time. These include Therapeutic Laser, IFC, Ultra sound, TENS, Russian, Trabert, and VMS to name a few. Once the pain and inflammation phase has settled, the strength and conditioning phase will commence. This involves exercise prescription, sport specific exercises and stretching as well as core strength facilitation.
