CHIROPRACTIC TECHNIQUES

The chiropractor applies certain techniques and aims to remove blockages and disturbances in the nervous system and to restore mobility, so that the nervous system comes back into balance.

 

Our chiropractors are specialised in:

SOT (Sacrale Occipital Technique)

Diversified technique

Activator technique

NOT (Neural Organisation Technique)

Thompson technique

Websters technique

Applied Kinesiology (AK)

Chiropractic originated as a holistic medicine in 1895, with the aim of creating better health by optimising the nervous system. This sounds pretty simple, but in reality it is a very complex matter where the starting point is that the body is self-healing and this healing process is guided by the nervous system. ​ So when blockages arise in the vertebrae, this will disrupt the function of the nervous system in such a way that the healing process will not function properly.

CHIROPRACTIC AND PREGNANCY

During the first appointment, we make the diagnosis by conducting a full medical history and performing a specific physical examination. 

 

The treatment itself will focus on the vertebrae and pelvis through a variety of safe and effective chiropractic techniques. By applying this, we can effectively remedy any blockages in the nervous system. A variety different soft tissue techniques will also be used to support the adjustments.

CHIROPRACTIC AND CHILDREN

What does an examination with the chiropractor look like?

In a first consultation, the history of the child, the pregnancy and childbirth story are also discussed. The chiropractor uses different methods to investigate where the complaint comes from.

 

The examination is a thorough health check-up for:

  1. Primitive reflexes (birth reflexes)

  2. Mobility of spine, pelvis, joints and skull

  3. Muscle tension (too high or too low) and muscle reflexes

  4. Motor development milestones check-up

 

What does treatment with the chiropractor look like?

The chiropractic treatment techniques for children are very gentle and safe.

CHIROPRACTIC AND BABIES

What does an examination look like with the chiropractor?

In a first consultation, the history of the baby, the pregnancy and delivery story are also discussed. The chiropractor uses different methods to investigate where the complaint is coming from, with very gentle and safe techniques.

 

The examination is a thorough health check-up for:

  • Primitive reflexes

  • Mobility of spine, pelvis, joints 

  • Muscle tension (too high or too low) 

  • Muscle reflexes

  • Milestone development check-up

What does an treatment look like with the chiropractor?

Babies can be treated by a chiropractor from birth. The chiropractic treatment techniques for babies and children are very gentle and safe. The chiropractor can examine your child with the help of soft techniques

SHOCKWAVE THERAPY

Shockwave therapy is an often successful treatment for persistent tendon injuries/tendonitis.

 

What does it do?

  • Stimulating neo-vascularization (construction of new vessels) in the attachments of the tendon or in the bone.

  • Calcium deposits are broken down molecularly (can be degraded with x-ray, from approx. 6 months after therapy)

  • Renewed vascularization up to 4-6 weeks after treatment

  • Formation of myofibroblasts (in muscle tissue) up to 4-6 weeks after treatment

  • Release of endorphins: immediate analgesic effect.

Chronic pain complaints are often treatable with some form of pain relief. For example:

  • Calcifications in general (in muscles, tendons, joints etc)

  • Shoulder complaints, including calcifications

  • Bursitis (shoulder, hip)

  • Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)

  • Golfer's elbow (epicondylitis medialis)

  • Tendon site inflammation

  • Heel spur

DRY NEEDLING

By means of a special technique, muscles are pricked with a small needle and in this way become quickly relaxed for the long-term. ​ The treatment is aimed at disabling the trigger points/neurological cramping of a muscle/connective tissue. By means of targeted pricking with a needle, these points in the muscle (s) are relaxed. In case of long-term complaints, the therapist will often treat several muscles. Dry needling can be applied both in the limbs (arm or leg), as well as in the muscles along the spine. ​

 

Trigger points can manifest themselves in:

– pain /stiffness locally in a muscle; pain "at a distance"

– movement restrictions in associated joints

– decreased strength in the muscle(s) involved

– pain-avoiding behaviour; you are going to move "differently"

– cold, heat, chills, headache, dizziness etc.

KINESIOTAPING

To give support after a treatment, kinesiotape can be used.

 

Kinesiotape works well with:

  • the (after) treatment of injuries to the musculoskeletal system such as back and shoulder complaints, but also knee and calf complaints.

  • reducing inflammation or fluid accumulations (lymphedema).

  • improving the mobility of a joint.

  • postural corrections or change in the position of a joint.

  • treatment of complaints caused by overload.

IAMFR - FASCIA RELEASE TECHNIEK

Instrument Assisted Myofascial Release

Fascia is one large 3-dimensional elastic connective tissue network in the body that runs from head to toe, from skin to bone. The fascia ensures that your body is held together and everything stays in the right place. ​ But at least as important is that there is a liquid gel between these membranes that ensures that muscles can pass each other smoothly. The fascia system thus ensures both stability, frictionless movement and resilience. With this, it plays a very important role in your health and mobility. ​ Fascia contains many more nerve endings ('sensors') than muscle or bone.

 

Pain, stiffness and balance problems are usually caused by problems in the fascia.   This technique is done with stainless steel tools, held by hand with soft edges, with which exactly the contours of the body can be followed and treated.
