Chiropractic

What is Chiropractic Care?
The aim of Chiropractic is to achieve balance throughout the entire body. A balanced spine allows a healthy body through its influence on our nervous system, which controls every organ, cell and tissue in the body. Chiropractic treatment allows your nervous system to flow freely and work to the best of its ability. Chiropractors use gentle adjustments to your spine and pelvis, cranium (head) or limbs to restore normal movement and reduce any pressure or blockage to your nerves.


How many treatments will I require?
Our aim at Oasis Health is to get you out of pain and discomfort as quick as we can, restore you to better health and maintain good spinal balance once this is achieved. Depending on the duration and severity of you or your child’s condition, normally we make considerable change to your nervous system within a few sessions. Ongoing maintenance care would involve having a “tune up” every once in a while to maintain optimal well being.


What Chiropractic methods do you use?
Lucy uses a wide range of Chiropractic methods. These include: Neurological release techniques, soft tissue work, muscle trigger point releases, mobilisations and gentle chiropractic adjustments, cranio-sacral technique and Webster technique.


Can I automatically claim from my health fund at my appointment?
For our patients convenience we have HICAPS instant claim facilities  - available for all health funds.


Is a Referral necessary?
Chiropractors are primary healthcare practitioners therefore a referral is not necessary. However more and more GP's are referring to Chiropractors via the Enhanced Primary Care Program (EPC).


What is DNS / Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilisation?
Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilisation (DNS) is a concept developed by the world renowned Prague Rehab School. It is based around the concept of integration of the motor plan as we develop. A key element to “low back pain” is poorly integrated motor patterns at an early point in a person’s life, leading to long term dysfunction and injury.
DNS uses structured protocols to address this for individuals of ALL levels, from athletes to everyday people to those with developmental difficulties. A great deal of the research and success has been with Cerebral Palsy patients, as spinal reflexes are a key to the re-education of the motor plan.
