All of our practitioners routinely incorporate stretches and exercises into their treatment plans, as well as soft tissue techniques such as trigger point therapy and massage. This includes strategies to improve flexibility and reduce pain, and the all important ‘core stability’. Our chiropractors don’t always or only adjust spines (”crack backs”), but also pay special attention to how your muscles and nervous system is working to support your joints, and allow you to move as a whole person.
Gisborne Chiropractic Clinic provides Exercise Therapy consultations which combine the latest medical research into spinal stability, exercise rehabilitation and optimal performance training.
Before attending an Exercise Therapy session, people must attend an initial consultation with one of the chiropractors at Gisborne Chiropractic Clinic, which allows for a full health and medical history, physical assessment and individualisation of your program (for home and/or clinic) to achieve your goals.
Whether you are attempting to improve your spinal (core) stability, recover from injury, reduce pain, or enhance sports performance, the Exercise Therapy consultations are designed to realise your health care outcomes.
Dr Brayden Allan has a special interest and particular skill in advanced injury rehabilitation. Having done further study in sports chiropractic, Brayden can provide all the usual post injury rehabilitation, as well as pre and post-surgery rehabilitation (such as knee or hip replacement surgery, shoulder surgery, knee arthroscopes etc). This is particularly useful for those that are getting a little older and need such surgeries, and also for high level athletes, who need to get back on track ASAP.
If you have any specific rehabilitation questions, or want to know if we can help, call our staff or chat to Brayden.
