Philosophy of Chiropractic

I believe the body has the power to heal itself. However, sometimes it needs assistance via Chiropractic adjustments to start the healing process. The pelvis and sacrum are vital in this instance. I think of this area like the foundation of a building. Without the proper foundation the walls and roof will not sit correctly. If left untreated more problems will occur. When a person's pelvis is not balanced many lower back, upper limb, neck and jaw problems appear to arise as the body's ability to heal is impaired.  A series of Chiropractic adjustments work towards balancing the body to facilitate the repair process (in ligaments, tendons, muscles and fascia) as well as reducing stress or incorrect loading to the spine and pelvis.


A person with a proper functioning pelvis appears to have minimal spinal issues, unless some type of trauma is encountered. Combine a healthy spine/pelvis with regular rehabilitative exercises and your cerebrospinal fluid will pump effectively from your head around your spinal cord to your pelvis. This delivers the much needed nutrition to the nerves and spinal discs to maintain your health. It also has the added effect of mobilizing/strengthening the spine and pelvis to enhance the effect of the Chiropractic adjustment. I find that regular Chiropractic adjustments maintain the balance and therefore health of the body.


Philosophy of Occupational Therapy

Occupations are meaningful activities that determine our health and enable us to contribute both individually and collectively in a family/community. This involves the dynamic process of interaction within physical, personal, social, cultural, temporal or virtual environments. Through active engagement we evolve, change and adapt. Occupational Therapy is based on the belief that occupations may be used for rehabilitation, health maintenance, health promotion, wellness, disease and injury prevention and compensation/adaption. In a paediatric setting we use the occupation of play to support a child's participation in life situations.


Techniques used

Currently, I use a combination of Chiropractic Techniques with influences from Terminal Point Technique (TPT), Blocking, Diversified Technique, Directional Non-Force Technique (DNFT) and Myofascial Release (MR). They involve muscle testing, Chiropractic adjustments by hand, a drop piece table, placement of wedged shaped blocks, cryotherapy and prescribed rehabilitative exercises. Most patients find the Chiropractic adjustments quite comfortable compared to some other techniques. 


I am also trained in a variety of other techniques including Applied Kinesiology (AK - uses muscle testing to assess your nervous system function and find a solution to your health concerns), Sacral Occipital Technique (SOT - gentle technique using wedges to restore spinal and sacral function) and Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET - mind-body technique that uses a method to find and remove neurological imbalances related to the physiology of unresolved stress).
