Chiropractic is a system of therapeutics which is renowned for improving mobility, stamina and endurance. It offers a natural approach to restore your skeletal and nervous system to optimum health through spinal manipulations.
The aim is to remove any mechanical stiffness and imbalances of your spinal column which are impairing your quality of life. A form of joint manipulation known as chiropractic “adjustment” is made by the chiropractor in Milperra who applies forceful pressure with his hands on a spinal joint that has become locked or misaligned. The pressure is applied in a particular direction, in a movement that can only be carried out by a highly trained professional.
The patient frequently feels some relief even after one adjustment, as the spine is then freer, and the ligaments and muscles begin to stabilise. There may sometimes be a slight popping sound when the adjustment is made, however there is no pain involved. Chiropractic treatment can have a profound affect on the functioning of the nervous system, and many conditions such as headaches, which are not typically related to back problems.
When you visit us for the first time in Milperra NSW, just 24 km from the Sydney business centre, Dr Wayne Gard will discuss any difficulties you are experiencing, and then go through your medical history. He will make a thorough holistic examination which encompasses a chiropractic, orthopedic and neurological check up. If necessary, he may also take x-rays to establish any underlying functional and structural problems related to the spinal column. This will indicate regions of malfunction in the spinal column and resulting deficiencies in the nervous system. He will explain the results and show you any points of relevance on your x-rays. If required, he will then recommend a course of treatment based on your needs. Throughout the follow-up visits, your progress will be monitored through regular examinations.
