Digital On-Site X-Rays
The clinic provides modern digital x-ray equipment which enables us to take onsite x-rays of our patients if there is a clinical indication. These x-rays can be assessed by the Chiropractor and a subsequent treatment plan can be put into place quickly and efficiently. We use Posture Ray Exacting X-Ray Software which aids in the analysis of spinal x-rays and plots abnormal spinal deviations for each x-ray view. This allows our patients to see exactly what spinal corrections are necessary and the analysis software also aids to track the progress of treatment. Written reports can be provided for a small fee.
Our Chiropractors can directly refer for MRI scans if clinically indicated.
We utilise the Spinal Analysis Machine (SAM) to assess your postural imbalances and asymmetries. It is a user-friendly device with two scales showing weight distribution through each foot and movable vertical and lateral cords demonstrate how your posture has deviated from normal. We also employ Posture Screen digital postural analysis software program which has been scientifically proven to be useful in the diagnosis of forward head posture. We are able to show our patients their pre- and post-treatment images of their postural improvements throughout their care.
Our Chiropractors utilise a number of different techniques including Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP), Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT), Diversified, Drop Piece and Instrument Adjustments using Activator and Arthrostim devices respectively. Our Chiropractors are highly trained in these techniques which all serve to improve spinal health and function.
Spinal Rehabilitation Traction and Exercise Programs to Correct and Improve Posture and Spinal Health
We can devise and recommend bespoke home exercise and traction programs using the latest research on spinal health for each patient. Exercises are both static and dynamic to improve core strength and posture. Home traction units are portable and small and can be used anywhere at home or in the workplace.
