The Importance Of Chiropractic Care
At Selph, our philosophy of Chiropractic treatment is rooted in the belief that the body is a complex, holistic system which requires all muscles, joints and nerves working cohesively in order to ensure the overall health of a person.
The role of Chiropractors is to restore and enhance spinal function and alignment in order to promote the body’s natural abilities to self regulate and self heal.
Selph Chiropractors create long term solutions to ongoing pain or discomfort within the body, as well as emotional stress and tension. It is our role to investigate and address the root cause of presenting symptoms to ensure nobody feels their only option is to live with their symptoms.
The Philosophy of Chiropractic Care Considers:
Realign In Order to Regain Control
The structure of the spine allows it to naturally absorb enormous amounts of stress and tension. When one joint or region becomes tense or restricted, other parts of your spine that are moving well simply move more to compensate.
Most people’s first restrictions within the spine begin at early childhood. Over time, the many stresses we experience in life compound these restrictions and additional tensions build up. A persons posture can be affected while their nervous system and bodily functions are often dramatically reduced.
Spinal pain or other obvious symptoms usually appear after many years, when your spine is simply unable to absorb or compensate for any more stress and tension. Much like tooth decay, it is happening under the surface, reducing your health and wellbeing and causing your spine to degenerate or decay.
Chiropractic care may help with:
- Postural problems
- Nerve pain and sciatica (Shooting pains in the leg)
- Lower back pain and back injuries
- Neck pain and disc injuries
- Nerve pain (such as pinched nerves in back)
- Sports injuries
- Wrist and foot alignment
- Shoulder injury/stiffness
- Hip alignment
Holistic Approach For Long Term Results
Our experienced chiropractors assess and treat these issues by taking into account physical, chemical and emotional factors, looking for the cause rather than just treating the effect or symptoms. This results in treating the whole person, not only the parts.
When treating the emotional aspects of injury, our Chiropractors may utilise Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET), a research validated stress-reduction technique aimed at emotional and physical health improvement for the mind and body. The technique works to break learnt behavioural patterns to overcome mental and emotional blockages, helping to maintain a balanced emotional mind.
Techniques used in treatments may include the following as required for each individual:
- Thompson Technique (Drop Piece with table)
- Diversified Manual Adjustments
- Neuro-Emotional Technique (N.E.T)
- Applied Kinesiology (AK)
- Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT)
- Retained Neonatal Reflexes (RNR)
- Arthostim (Quantum Neurology)
- Dry Needling
- Soft Tissue Release
As with all treatments at Selph Health Studios, your Chiropractor will be able to see and discuss your past and current treatments with any other of the Selph practitioners you are being treated by. This ensures that your treatments and plan are both cohesive and collaborative across all disciplines.
