Our belief is that no two bodies are the same or respond to treatment the same way. Each sessions starts off with a complete medical intake and a conversation to learn about your goals and reasons for seeking treatment. From there, your therapist will devise a treatment plan, completely customised for you.

Choice Chiropractic is here to help with all of your chiropractic needs:

CHIROPRACTIC FOR CHILDREN

You may be asking yourself, why would my child need to see a chiropractor? A pediatric chiropractor can help your child heal and attain true health. Chiropractors look beyond symptoms to address a problem’s root cause. When spinal or cranial joints don’t move properly (conditions called subluxations) they can irritate the nervous system— the nervous system that runs your child’s body. This irritation may lead to problems in various body systems, depending on which nerve gets affected. For example, nursing difficulties, poor sleep and constipation can all result from nervous system irritation. Chiropractic care removes the source of irritation, allowing your child’s body to heal and operate properly.

DRY NEEDLING

Dry Needling – commonly referred to as ‘Western Acupuncture’ – is a technique that many Physiotherapists and Massage Therapists use to treat myofascial pain. Utilising the same tool as the practice of Acupuncture, a solid, filament needle, Dry Needling involves inserting the needle into the skin and tissues to help specifically target and resolve trigger points.

The primary focus of Dry Needling is to promote tissue healing and to restore normal tissue function. This is because continued activity with poor muscle function may lead to further damage and can increase muscular pain. 

Combined with other hands on treatment methods that Massage Therapists and Physiotherapists use, Dry Needling can reduce pain and help with the healing of normal tissue function.

Extensive scientific research has provided support of the positive outcomes of Dry Needling, including evidence of inhibiting the transmission of pain signals in our spinal cord and increasing the release of our own pain relieving chemicals within our brains.

Dry Needling uses a very fine needle to cause a small, precise lesion in the tissue when it enters the body. This needle causes the targeted area to send injury signals to the brain (as explained by Pain Gate Theory), which initiates a sequence of events to replace and repair the damaged tissue with new, healthy tissue. The needle is inserted until the sensation of deqi is reached. Deqi is described as being the feeling of a dull ache and heaviness around the needle when manipulated in the correct way.

Needling in a painful trigger point or muscular knot frequently provokes a twitch response from the muscle. Once the twitch response and deqi have been reached, the muscle fibres in that area relax, inflammation is reduced and circulation improves. Consequently, Dry Needling can purposely address muscle and myofascial pain and dysfunction.

When experiencing Dry Needling, the local twitch response or sudden slight contraction of the muscle may provoke a very brief and minor pain response. This has been described as a cramping sensation. A therapeutic response occurs with the reaction of local twitch responses and this is a positive and desirable outcome.

During treatment, and depending on the Dry Needling technique used, patients can experience heaviness in the limbs or a feeling of relaxation. Following this technique some muscle soreness may be felt for up to 24-48 hours. The application of heat or ice (depending of the needling site) and drinking plenty of fluids can reduce soreness.
