In order to restore proper spinal biomechanics and improve the function of the nervous system, chiropractic treatment at Essential Chiropractic Clinic usually involves soft tissue and trigger point therapy, use of biomechanical pelvic blocks, stretching, and adjustments through one or more of low force activator, use of drop piece table and/or high force, low amplitude manual adjustment. Spinal adjustments are gentle and specific, and are performed differently depending on your age and type of spinal problem. In combination with hands-on treatment, advice may also be given on stretch/exercise, posture, foot support and footwear, nutrition, ergonomics, massage and sleeping habits in order to enhance your recovery and reduce the likelihood of recurring injuries.
At our clinic the decision on the type of care plan you choose to have is up to you. The decision will be based on your health goal and what you want to achieve through Chiropractic care.

CORRECTIVE CARE
During this period, visits are less frequent with chiropractic care being required normally once a week or fortnightly. During this time, at which symptoms are significantly improved or gone, the chiropractor will detect and correct any underlying spinal problems. The aim will be to strengthen the muscles and improve spinal function so that correction is maintained.

MAINTENANCE / LIFESTYLE CARE
Once spinal health has improved, many patients choose to schedule maintenance visits in order to help maintain and reduce the possibility of new injuries/problems from arising in the future. Many patients also choose this option for their families, and come in regularly for checkups and adjustments, making Chiropractic a part of their lifestyle regime in order to maintain optimal spinal health levels.
Maintenance chiropractic care allows for early detection of small problems before they become serious and cause symptoms, thereby allowing you to maintain long term spinal and body wellbeing. Depending on their choice, patients may choose to come in weekly, fortnightly or monthly.

PAIN RELIEF CARE
This type of care aims at reducing and relieving your pain/discomfort and helps to reduce the inflammation that may be present. It is usually the period when your symptoms are most intense. Visits during this period are more regular, and can be up to 2 - 3 times a week.
