Chiropractic Treatment in Geelong at Latrobe Terrace Chiro

Chiropractic treatment involves manual manipulations (adjustments) which are aimed at getting the joints (especially vertebral joints) back in to proper alignment, for optimal musculoskeletal function as well as nervous system function. It is an effective treatment option for many people with back pain, neck pain and headaches, as well as a range of other health problems from period pain to knee and shoulder stiffness.

Our aim is to provide safe, effective chiropractic treatment to Surf Coast Shire families. To this end, we offer a choice of two main adjustment techniques- manual, and using specially developed tools (the instrument adjusting methods). When you come in for your initial consultation, your chiropractor will be able to tell you more and let you know which would be most suitable for your needs and health goals.

Network (NSA) Chiro in Geelong at Latrobe Terrace Chiropractic

Latrobe Terrace Chiropractic is proud to be a pioneering provider of network chiro to the Surf Coast Shire region. As healthcare professionals, we believe in taking a holistic and proactive approach to wellbeing and wellness. This is why we utilise NSA chiro at our Geelong clinic; our aim is to help you and your family feel your very best and achieve optimum health, as opposed to just an absence of illness.

What is NSA Chiro?

NSA stands for network spinal analysis, an evidence-based approach (Dobson et al, 1996) to wellness and bodily awareness. It is centred around using ‘low force’ touches at very specific points on the spine, designed to assist the brain and the wider nervous system to experience surroundings and stimuli efficiently, adapt to stress, and connect with natural rhythms. What this means in practical terms for patients is that the body is, effectively, better able to heal itself. It is a useful approach for people who have not found success with traditional or conventional treatment methods, as it is highly personalised to the individual; network chiro is all about finding out what works best for your body, so you can respond with appropriate action. This does not necessarily mean thinking about what situations cause pain, discomfort or an exacerbation of symptoms (although it can include that) it’s more about your body’s innate responses.

NSA chiro is not about ‘cracking’ the back, or using strong manipulations. Rather, your chiropractor will use gentle yet precise movements to bring about benefits. In fact, many patients report that it is a pleasant and almost relaxing experience that produces both noticeable immediate results and real, measurable long term benefits. Dr Nicholas will be able to tell you more about what to expect when you come in for your initial appointment.

Making an appointment

Our convenient location on Latrobe Terrace means we are a central destination for NSA chiroin the Surf Coast Shire.

Massage

Massage in Geelong at Latrobe Terrace Chiropractic

Whether you’re looking to relieve stress or to recover from an injury sooner, massage is a highly effective option. By manipulating both the superficial and the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, a masseuse can help improve mobility, aid the body’s own natural healing processes, decrease muscle reflex activity (important in reducing cramps, twitching and pains), and promote relaxation. For patients at Latrobe Terrace Chiropractic in Geelong, massage can form an important part of treatment along with chiro and/or myotherapy.

Types of massage

There are many different types of massage which may be used, depending on your therapeutic needs and goals. Remedial massage is a broad term which encompasses massage techniques specifically designed to bring therapeutic benefit. It may involve some gentle stretching, articulation and deep tissue work. Shiatsu is a Japanese therapeutic massage that involves working on certain pressure points, and uses different types of strokes including rolling and brushing. Swedish massage, known in many parts of the world as ‘classic massage’, uses five different types of long, flowing stroke to help reduce pain and stiffness. Lymphatic drainage massage is a special type of light massage, again with long flowing strokes, which is designed to work only on the lymphatic system (at the surface). When you make an appointment for massage in Geelong at Latrobe Terrace, your masseuse will discuss which type of massage will suit you best.

Changing poor eating habits can be challenging, and it takes time and support.  With post-graduate qualifications in psychology and nutrition from Deakin University it is Julie's goal to help you manage your own dietary challenges, improve your wellbeing and maximise your potential for a long, healthy life through sound, simple advice from up to date nutrition research.

Myotherapy

Latrobe Terrace is Your Myotherapy Clinic in Geelong

Myotherapy is a type of hands-on, manual therapy which combines multiple different disciplines aimed at the assessment and therapeutic treatment of musculoskeletal problems, including muscle aches and pains. Using trigger point therapy, muscle energy technique (resistance exercises), joint mobilisation (manual movement of joints), soft tissue massage, and dry needling (similar to acupuncture), myotherapists can bring about a number of benefits including but not limited to improved circulation and lymphatic drainage, better reflexes, increased range of motion, reduction of muscle strain and discomfort, and de-activation of troubling ‘trigger points’.

Latrobe Terrace Chiropractic offers myotherapy in Geelong at our conveniently located practice.
