Are you recovering from a complex case such a motor vehicle accident or severe trauma?
Even when you've experienced a severe illness or have already been operated on, whether it is your spine, disc problems, hip, knee or shoulder Chiropractic care can play an important role in returning you to optimal performance and function.
We are here to help you get back to your best possible state of expressing health. A well functioning nervous system is essential for healthy regeneration and healing from the inside out. Chiropractic care can help you to get back in balance and back to your great self.
As Chiropractors we often witness that operations correct what is symptomatic, but not the underlying cause of nerve interference. Many spinal problems have their origin in chronic neurological patterns that have developed over the years, often due to subluxations. If these problems remain, despite an operation, it's nearly impossible for your spine to heal well. Other areas of your spine may also be significant in the normalisation of spinal function and can be addressed accordingly. In these cases it is often necessary to adjust more frequently as we change the input to the brain and ‘break-through’ the patterns the brain is perceiving to be dominant.
It is also true that the majority of people hold their bodies in a posture to avoid pain. These often chronic coping mechanisms need attention paid to them, to avoid becoming a problem themselves. As an example, we often see people with knee pain over 6 months who have now developed low back pain due to uneven gait, sitting and standing.
Whether the operated area receives chiropractic care will be entirely dependent on the nature of the problem, the operation itself, and how recently it was performed. Even prior to the operation it is a good idea to get your nervous system working better. This usually helps reducing the recovery period after your operation and allows for better integration of information from the outside world. This will of course be discussed before any chiropractic care takes place.
