Is Chiropractic Manipulation a Safe Treatment for Headaches, Neck, and Back Pain?
Many people ask: Is chiropractic treatment safe? The Short Answer is yes! If you are injured at work or during a sporting or strenuous physical activity, we can help. Likewise, if you are suffering from chronic discomfort due to previous damage or simply due to age related health issues, The Healing Touch Clinic can help. Read on to discover more.
How Does Chiropractic Work, and What Are the Benefits?
We aim to improve your motion range and the pain that accompanies misaligned disks, pinched nerves, and tight muscles with a spinal adjustment. You don’t need a referral to obtain our help if you suffer from sciatica, headaches, and inflammation.
Our chiropractors will realign your joints and spine by hand, potentially relieving the pain resulting from conditions that affect your muscles, bones, connective tissue, cartilages, and joints. We tailor how our chiropractic treatments work to your particular complaint.
We may also prescribe exercises to do at home. Implementing these may address your problems in-between treatments and support the work we do at the clinic.
Chiropractic adjustments can ease neck and back pain, making you less dependent on pain relievers. They can reduce osteoarthritis, scoliosis, and migraine symptoms. Allow us to help you improve your athletic performance, range of motion, posture, and mobility. We can start your body on its self-healing path.
Studies show that people who see a chiropractor require a shorter treatment period at a lower cost than those who opt for conventional medical care. Everyone, including babies and children, can gain from chiropractic treatment.
What is ACC, and Can We Claim for You?
The Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) is a government organisation that subsidises costs for treatments for injuries that occurred in New Zealand. It can be utilised by anyone in the country – residents, citizens and visitors.
The scheme works on a no-fault basis so that you are covered, no matter how you became injured.
We qualify to lodge ACC claims on your behalf if necessary.
Healing Touch Clinic Suggestions
Discuss your condition with us beforehand if you have a known bone abnormality in your upper back, suffer from cancer in the spine, have severe osteoporosis, or have an increased risk of stroke. We take a comprehensive health history but request that you inform us if you experience numbness or a loss of strength in an arm or leg. Doing so will enable us to prevent risks and provide therapy safely.
