The aim of chiropractic care is to restore the body’s natural abilities to self-regulate and self-heal by enhancing spine and joint alignment, muscle balance and nervous system function. Whether you are a busy professional weekend warrior or elite athlete, expecting mum, growing adolescent or older adult, Chiropractic at Motion Health Centre in the Sydney CBD has several safe and effective solutions to help you gain better health and motion.
Our goal with Chiropractic care is to help Align Your Motion for improved posture, better biomechanical function and increased body awareness (proprioceptive). To do so, our doctors utilize a variety of techniques depending on a number of factors such as age, flexibility, genetics, comfort level and the nature and time frame of your injury or condition. This includes gentle mobilisations to speedy adjustments/manipulations, spine and posture correction protocols, instrument adjusting and other soft tissue therapies, sports care, and corrective exercises.
Natural Freedom From Pain and Improved Health and Mobility
Are you suffering from:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Jaw pain
- Headaches or migraines
- Tingling or numbness
- Radiating leg or arm pain
- Poor posture
- Discomfort on sitting, standing, bending over
- Disc bulge or disc protrusion
- Degeneration, arthritic pain
- Restless sleep
- Lack of concentration due to pain and discomfort
- Low energy
Often, without being aware of it, one of the various root causes of these signs and symptoms are spine and joint mis-alignments and restrictions that accompany poor posture and lack of mobility. Left undetected and unresolved, these spine and joint restrictions can impede movement, cause muscle contraction, emit distorted motion signals to and from the body and brain, and can cause chronic, ongoing pain and dysfunction.
Natural relief from pain and restoration of function can often start immediately and then progressively improve when Chiropractic care is tailored to your needs. Most chiropractic adjustments frequently involve manipulation, which involves applying a gentle manual force to spinal bones or joints. This often results in a popping sound that is called a “cavitation.” The sound is simply a change in gas pressures between the joints from the speediness of the movement.
It is the combination of the speediness of the adjustment and the restoring of the joints biomechanics that triggers the brain to detect improved freedom from restrictions. In turn, when the restrictive interferences are reduced or no longer detected, corrective changes in the way pain and distorted motion signals are emitted to and from the body occur and improve. This often results in an improved sense of well-being. This is all naturally done by hand, which is the actual meaning of Chiropractic.
