At Campsie Physiotherapy, we offer chiropractic services that can treat joint problems and muscle strain. Two chiropractors, Tom Xin and Sammi Du, will provide massage therapy which manipulates stiff joints and corrects poor posture. This helps patients to start performing muscle strengthing exercises and, as a result, adjust the strength the spine.
The most common treatment technique used by chiropractors is spinal manipulation. This method applies passive forces of flexion, extension and rotation of specific vertebral segments in the spine. It is used effectively for the treatment of sacroiliac and vertebral discolations, sprains and adhesions. Some examples of spinal manipulation include toggle drop, lumbar roll, release work and table and instrument adjustments.
