What We Do / Techniques
The chiropractors at Hornsby Chiropractic Centre are all highly trained in a range of techniques, which can be adapted as needed. From the most gentle applications through to spinal manipulation, muscular releases and rehabilitation.
Our treatment consists of chiropractic adjustments together with ancillary procedures such as specific soft tissue muscle releases (including Trigenics) , stretching and strengthening programs and the referral to other allied practitioners such as podiatrists, psychologists or massage therapists.
The main adjusting techniques are used at Hornsby Chiropractic Centre:
Manual diversified adjustments where the adjustments are delivered by hand - The pressure or tension used for an adjustment also depends on the patient so that we can safely use this technique on all ages
The use of the activator instrument to deliver the adjustment
Dry Needling (medical acupuncture) is a trigger point treatment technique, which uses small acupuncture needles to release tight muscles with the goal of permanently reducing muscle pain and dysfunction. This technique effectively treats acute and chronic orthopaedic and musculoskeletal conditions.
The type of adjustment used will vary depending upon your condition – your chiropractor will discuss this with you to make sure you understand and are happy with your treatment plan.
At Hornsby Chiropractic Centre we place an emphasis on empowering the patient with active care i.e. helping you look after your back the best possible way.
