How can we
help you?

The joints of your spine are designed to move freely. So you can move freely. But sometimes, because of trauma or stress, these joints can become misaligned or restricted. We call this a subluxation.

The joints of your spine are designed to move freely. So you can move freely. But sometimes, because of trauma or stress, these joints can become misaligned or restricted. We call this a subluxation.

This misalignment of the spine could be the result of a major trauma, like a car accident or sports injury. Or it could be because of the smaller, repetitive traumas of everyday life: hunched over a laptop, keeping up with the kids, over-enthusiastic exercising. However it’s come about, this misalignment – this subluxation of joints – can cause real pain and discomfort. It can impinge on the nerves, affecting how they work. This can cause a number of health issues and painful symptoms.

As Chiropractors, we can realign the bones of the spine, removing the nerve impingements and allowing the nervous system to start working as it should. Then your body’s natural ability to heal itself kicks back in again and you start feeling and functioning a lot better. Minus the pain, distraction or discomfort.

Now, you don’t have to be a sportsperson to benefit from sports massage. (But they do, and often, because it works.) If you have tight, tense or stressed muscles, then a deep, invigorating sports massage will relax them and increase their flexibility. A good sports massage helps strained muscles to heal faster and enables your joints to move more freely – by realigning the muscle fibres and connective tissue, and flushing away unpleasant toxins. Bye-bye, toxins.

Our massage therapists use a number of different techniques, including deep tissue massage, myofascial release, muscle energy techniques, and trigger point therapy. Like everything we do, it’s about what’s right for you and your body.

The dream team. How Chiropractic Care and sports massage go hand-in-hand to work wonders

Chiropractic care realigns the joints of the spine, while sports massage relaxes the muscles around it. So after a sports massage, when your muscles are properly relaxed, your joints are better able to hold the realignment that the Chiropractic adjustments are doing. This helps you to get better quicker and stay better for longer. That’s win-win.

So if you’re having Chiropractic care with us, your massage therapist will work closely with your Doctor of Chiropractic to tailor a plan just for you.

Soft Tissue Therapy (STT for short) is specifically designed to target and fix the cause of your pain. It’s an active treatment, not a relaxing massage, often used to complement sports massage and Chiropractic care.

We’ll start by taking a close look at your body’s muscular movement patterns. This will help us pinpoint where and what the problem is with a particular muscle or group of muscles. And that problem could be tendon or ligament-related, imbalance in muscle stability or a strain to the mid-muscle belly itself. As always, we’ll look closely to get to the root of the problem.

Once we’ve identified the problem, we get to work on fixing it. STT techniques include active/passive muscle release, joint mobility, acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, muscle stimulation, myofascial cupping, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilisation, and kinesiology tapping. But don’t worry, whichever technique we apply (and it will also be the right one for your specific problem), it will reduce pain and promote a better conditioned muscle or soft tissue. This, in turn, helps to restore its natural ability to function as it should.

And STT can be more than just a pain cure too. It can help to prevent injuries too, by stopping muscular inflammation and strains. It can improve muscular performance and decrease hyperactive muscle too. And it’s also very useful if you have circulatory issues as it helps to promote good blood flow.
