Treatment Modalities

Chiropractic treatment may involve the use of various modalities in the treatment of some conditions. Each modality is used with the consent of the patient and in the absence of contra-indications. These include electro modalities, manual therapy, blocking, mobilization, manipulation, ice and heat therapy, vibration, functional and supportive strapping, dry needling, manual therapy and myofascial release techniques and massage. At Somerset Chiropractic, we will engage with the patient to identify the most appropriate modalities suited to the specific case. Before any modality is used on a patient, it will be explained to the patient and all questions pertaining to the treatment and expected outcomes will be discussed.

Chiropractic treatment may aid in a more comfortable pregnancy and assist is either preventing or managing lower back pain that may present due to pregnancy. Chiropractic treatment is often provided to children to assist in their optimum functioning, especially after birth. Chiropractic treatment has been found to be of great benefit to paediatric patients and provides parents with a drug free alternative. Chiropractic care for children is gentle and safe. Paediatric patients are treated differently to adults due to the nature of their developing skeletal system and neurological system. Treatment of paediatrics is not based on biomechanics but rather in providing support to their neuromuscular system through the developmental stages. Should you have specific questions regarding treatment for paediatric patients, feel free to contact Somerset Chiropractic and we will gladly assist you.
