Chiropractic

A healthy spine is one that moves freely, is well-aligned, and strong. With a healthy spine it allows for full movement, optimum nerve function, and makes it easy to perform day-to-day tasks.

When the spine and nervous system are not functioning properly, this can affect your daily function and decrease your quality of life.

You might notice this in the form of

  • Poor posture
  • Fatigue and poor sleeping patterns
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Headaches
  • TMJ dysfunction
  • Sports and other joint pain or injuries

Chiropractic care focusses on the communication of the brain and the whole nervous system with the body. Dr. Sandra Buchanan takes a whole person approach and in addition to the physical treatments, may include suggestions about exercise, nutrition, workplace ergonomics, or other lifestyle factors.

At your appointment you can expect to experience history taking, patient examination, diagnosis, treatment and patient education. X-rays or other imaging will only be ordered if clinically indicated.

A Chiropractic adjustment from Dr. Sandra Buchanan (Chiropractor) is very gentle and method selected will be modified depending on patient preference or need. Some of the specific techniques used include Diversified, Activator, Sacro-occipital Technique, Webster technique (for pregnant women).

Soft tissue techniques are used at almost every appointment to relax and restore muscular function such as Active Release, Trigger point Therapy, PNF stretching, cross-friction, and massage.

You may also be prescribed specific exercises, workplace modifications, or other lifestyle advice to maximise your recovery.
