Info for Clients

Chiropractic is Natural

The basic premise is simple.

Your body knows what to do as long as there is no interference.

Chiropractor’s actions are straight forward. Find any area in the body where the trillions of nerve signals traveling every second between your brain and body are being blocked (this is called a subluxation complex) and unblock them scientifically and specifically (this is called an adjustment).

Your body knows what to do from there.

Chiropractic Treatment

Chiropractic was founded in 1895, in the USA, by Daniel David Palmer. It is based upon the understanding that good health is dependent upon a normally functioning nervous system, especially the spine and nerves extending from the spine to all parts of the body. Chiropractors may sometimes refer to a patient’s subluxation, which is a misalignment of the spine that interferes with nerve signals transmitted by the brain.

Our Chiropractors at Coast Chiropractic Caboolture will take a case history then examine the spine to ascertain any injuries, accidents or tension that may be causing irritation to the spinal nerve roots. By reducing or eliminating this irritation, the body will operate more efficiently and more comfortably. They may also refer a patient for x-rays, or Massage if this is considered to be necessary. There is an emphasis upon nutritional and exercise programmes, along with advice on lifestyle modifications, as our Caboolture Chiropractors believe that the body is a self-regulating organism with an inborn potential to be healthy.

Pharmaceutical medications are not prescribed. Patients may be treated by gentle adjustments of the spine, which are usually performed on a special Chiropractic table and this may be supplemented by trigger point therapy and stretching techniques. Length and frequency of treatments will vary depending on the degree of severity of the problem presented. Due to their gentle nature, modern Chiropractic techniques are used for the elderly, children, and even infants.

Chiropractic for Children

At Coast Chiropractic Caboolture our chiropractic care of babies and children is gentle. The chiropractic techniques used in our practice typically involve gentle finger tip pressures (the kind you could tolerate over a closed eyelid) and specific massage. Coast Chiropractic Caboolture is also expert in dealing with injuries and disorders with older children and teenagers, including postural problems and sporting injuries.

Where possible we highlight things that young people (or parents) can do at home to help, like stretching and strengthening exercises, training activities, ergonomics and nutrition.
