The Chiropractic Adjusment

The Chiropractic adjustment is a painless choice of treatment with specific and controlled application of force through a dysfunctional joint.

An adjustment is a form of manipulative therapy, with scientific evidence to prove its effectiveness in restoring joint mechanics and function to assist the body with recovering.

Epping Family Wellness Centre Chiropractic focuses on the diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal and nervous system disorders.

The 'Crack'

When receiving an adjustment, an audible 'crack' or 'pop' may be heard.

Joints in the body are surrounded by synovial fluid, which assists with movment of the joint by acting as a lubrication. When an adjustment is applied to a dysfunctional joint, the joint capsule is stretched and the air within the fluid in the capsule is released which creates a 'crack' sound. This 'crack' sound is the release of gas bubbles from the joint.

Sport's Chiropactic

To acheive peak performance, the body needs to be in top physical condition. Musculoskeletal alignment is vital to get maximum output in sport. Chiropractic will help you acheive this.
Chiropractic in sport  focuses on the alignment and interaction of joint, nerve and muscular structures to ensure fluidity and coordination of the body on the sporting field.  

With a thorough history of injury and physical examination, the Chiropractor will understand the mechanics of an injury, diagnose the injury, and provide an appropriate treatment and rehabilitation plan to get you back on the field.
The Chiropractors objective for treatment in athletes is improve joint mobility, function, balance, coordination and proprioception, as well as  muscular and tendon  function and strength  with management and rehabilitation.

We aim for a fast and safe return to sport without further or repeat of injury in the future.
Injured athletes develop dysfunctional mechanics which stress the nervous system. This means the balance, coordination and proprioception of the body will be affected.

Chiropractic treatment addresses dysfunctional mechanics with methods such as Adjustment and Mobilisation techniques, Active Release Technique®, Sports Massage, Myofascial Release Techniques, Dry Needling and Sports Taping (KTape, Rocktape, Strapping).
