How we Work! Our Techniques
At Frankston Chiropractic Centre we employ various techniques and complimentary treatments to provide the best care for our patients.
The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment used on pregnant women which reduces sacropelvic misalignment, thus improving the function of the pelvic muscles and ligaments which leads to the reduction of constraint to the woman's uterus. This allows the baby to get into the best possible position for birth.
The Activator Method uses a small, hand held instrument that delivers a gentle but powerful thrusts which is barely discernible to the patient. The thrust is developed from the rapid release of a compressed spring inside the instrument. Cavitation or 'popping' of the joint typically does not occur. The majority of the adjustments are performed with the client lying face down.
Applied Kinesiology (AK)
Applied Kinesiology is predominantly used to determine health imbalances in the body by identifying weaknesses in specific muscles. Stimulation or relaxation in these key muscles allows the resolution of a variety of health problems.
Applied Kinesiology aims to:
- Determine a patient's health status and correlate findings with standard diagnostic procedures.
- Restore postural balance, correct gait impairment and improve range of motion.
- Restore normal nerve function.
- Intervene early in degenerative processes to prevent or delay pathological conditions.
SOT utilises the use of wedge shape devices known as 'blocks' to help correct your spine and properly 'tune' your nervous system. By knowing exactly where to position these blocks, we use the weight of your body to make corrections, naturally. By using gravity and your own body to effect correction, new healthier patterns of spinal function can result. Along with safe, consistent results, SOT is known for emphasising patient comfort.
The Thompson Technique uses a special table with several segments called drop pieces. The drop pieces help to minimise the force used during an adjustment, making it more comfortable for both the client and the doctor. Cavitation, or 'popping, of the joint does not usually occur.
