Our techniques

The medical professionals at City Chiropractic Clinic employ a wide range of proven techniques for each individual case. Below you’ll find a brief explanation of the most common chiropractic techniques in use today.

Manipulation

These are specialist adjustments which aim to free up stiff joints and remove irritation from the nervous system. These are generally painless.

Trigger point

The primary purpose of trigger point therapy is to reduce the pain that results from hypersensitive muscles. Trigger points are identified by gently pressing on the surface of the skin, sensing the texture of the underlying muscle.

A trigger point is like a knot the size of a pea, buried deep in the muscle tissue. It is made up of lactic acid, a normal byproduct of muscular activity, which sometimes gets trapped in the muscle as a result of physical, chemical or emotional stress.

Drop table

This technique makes use of specialised drop piece mechanisms in the table to assist the adjustment. Individual cushions or “drop pieces” located along the table support each area of the spine until the thrust is given. Each drop piece then gently gives way, reducing the pressure needed to move a specific spinal segment.

Additional therapies

Our practice employs many physical therapy methods, including ultrasound, interferential therapy, dry needling (which is similiar to acupuncture), postural advice and exercise rehabilitation therapy.

Orthotics Therapy

Most lower limb complaints originate from a condition called “excessive pronation” (flattened arches of the feet). This can contribute to many symptoms including: tired achy legs, foot pain, knee pain, low back pain, hip pain, plantar fasciitis, Morton’s Neuroma and shin splints.

Orthotics are shaped insoles placed inside your shoes to restore natural foot alignment and movement to alleviate pain and discomfort. The functions of orthotics are to make every day activities more comfortable and efficient, whether it is standing, walking, running or jumping.

ICB orthotics can be individually moulded to the shape of your feet by your chiropractor. If you think you may benefit from orthotic therapy, please contact us for more information, or book a 15 min orthotic assessment.
