Chiropractic care is 100% natural and supports healthy spinal function.

Chiropractic is recognised as one of the largest complimentary healthcare professions in the world and is the only profession in the world dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment for neuro-musculo-skeletal disorders of the spine and nervous system.

Chiropractors primarily perform specifically applied adjustments (spinal manipulation) to the spine to correct alignment problems, reduce muscle tension and improve posture- therefore alleviating pain, enhancing function, and supporting your body’s natural ability to heal itself.

After years of training and clinical experience, each Chiropractor in our centre is highly skilled in delivering a variety of trusted techniques, including spinal adjustments that are gentle (without the crack) for those who prefer this way of care. And for complete care of your body our Chiropractors are also highly trained in treatment for the shoulders, arms, hips and legs and complimentary therapies to help your healing such as massage, dry needling, cupping and exercise rehabilitation to enhance your care.

How do we mean by elderly? What used to be considered “old” at 60 is now only “senior” at 80. How many people can you think of who look as though they’re in their fifties, and then you discover they are well over 65 or even 70?

To find that you’re adding on the years can be a little daunting for some – but it doesn’t mean that you have to put up with the discomfort of aching backs, shoulders or limbs. What tends to happen though is that aching limbs and joints are often disregarded due to the “I’m just getting old” syndrome. Well, just because you may be adding a few years, is no reason to put up with pain or even discomfort.

Senior age groups often ask whether they can take advantage of chiropractic care and if it will help to alleviate problems with shoulder, hip and other joints without jeopardising themselves. The answer is a definite “yes”. There are a number of treatable conditions of the body as age increases; we just have to know precisely what the condition is and what is causing it. The first step is to ask the question to a chiropractor – if you don’t ask the question you will never know the answer. “Can you do anything for me?”is probably the simplest approach to your chiropractor. He or she will then be able to examine the facts of your individual circumstances, assess the pain and its causes and then tell you what, if anything, can be done for you. More often than not, regardless of your age, a remedy of care can be found for your specific condition. The result will invariably be greater mobility and your body’s ability to function better.

Many modern seniors tend to shy away from over-medication for pain relief, realising that through chiropractic care they are becoming pain-free and mobile to do the things they want to do, but without the fear of side-effects.

The concern that some have is in connection with chiropractic care and osteoporosis or other ailments – this doesn’t have to be a concern because, with the necessary modifications applied to the individual’s condition, chiropractic nurture is being applied on a regular basis to alleviate such conditions with no after side-effects. Indeed, many senior recipients of chiropractic care are consistently reporting freedom from pain and a remarkably improved mobility, coupled with a noticeable reduction in arthritic symptoms.

A commonly asked question at Potter Chiropractic is, “How safe and effective is chiropractic and/ or massage during pregnancy?”

No need to be concerned – we can help you.

Many women experience back pain during pregnancy and when nursing their baby. This is due to the extra weight placed on the spine by the baby. Provided that the Chiropractic and massage procedures are carried out gently and with extra care, in order not to create undue stress on the expectant mum or baby, there is no reason why treatment should not be provided for your discomfort.

In fact, studies have shown that providing a consistent program of Chiropractic care can have a positive effect on the nervous system and spine before, during, and after birth.

Posture is equally important, perhaps even more so during pregnancy. Your Chiropractor will help you by providing advice on maintaining spinal alignment for your body during all stages of motherhood.

Post-natal Chiropractic care has also been found to have beneficial effects for a return to a normal spine and pelvic posture. This involves some homework of exercises for the core and pelvic floor which stabilises the low back and pelvis, and re-strengthens the pelvic floor musculature for the prevention of pelvic floor  issues later in life.

Your Pregnancy

Pregnancy should be an enjoyable life experience. During pregnancy, however, a woman’s body goes through enormous changes. Due to ligament laxity and the shifting of the centre of gravity, mothers-to-be can develop poor posture and more than 50% of pregnant women experience low back pain.

There are many difficulties that you may experience during pregnancy- these include back pain, sore legs, pelvic joint irritation, neck pain, headaches, sciatica, shortness of breath, dizziness, morning sickness, fatigue and fluid retention. At Potter Chiropractic our doctors are trained to recognise mechanical dysfunction of the spine, along with the muscles and joints.

Chiropractic Aim

Chiropractic treatment offers a safe, gentle, and drug-free alternative for the relief of discomfort during pregnancy. This can result in less pain for the mother-to-be and more room for the developing baby so that both mother and baby can experience less physical and emotional stress. By reducing strain on the joints and muscles, normal daily activities can be continued throughout the 9 months. Many women who are cared for by Chiropractors find that labour is shorter and less painful.

This activity is important to:

  • strengthen muscles to take on a bigger load
  • make joints stronger and more flexible
  • improve circulation
  • help prepare for the physical exertion and recovery afterwards.
