Chiropractic back pain care has proven to be highly successful for many of our Cairns patients. Chiropractic recognises the body has an inborn healing ability. What Chiropractors do, is to assist the restoration of nerve firing appropriate to stimulus. We do this by looking at the whole body. That is, we check that all the joints of your spine, cranium, pelvis and periphery are moving as they should. This enables the brain firing patterns to operate as they should. This, when supported by appropriate lifestyle choices, goes a long way to helping to alleviate chronic and acute back pain. Contact us today on 0439 455 743.
Each of our chiropractic consultations are tailored to the individual patient. Initial consultations include getting a complete patient history and undertaking a series of postural, muscular and reflex testing. As primary health care practitioners, Chiropractors are trained to diagnose medical conditions that will require co-management with other health care providers or immediate referral for medical management. If this is required, we will tell you and take appropriate action. Otherwise, we will prepare an appropriate treatment plan to assist your body to heal.BOOK AN APPOINTMENT TODAY
Your nervous system is made up of the brain and spinal cord (the central nervous system). From the spinal cord, peripheral nerves branch off between every bone (vertebrae) in the spine to supply all the tissues and cells in your body. So, when your nervous system is not firing as it should, it can result in severe pain and discomfort, including back pain.
Our chiropractic spinal care adjustments are designed to restore appropriate nerve function to the body. This has the effect of relaxing muscle spasm and strengthening weak muscles. The Gonstead technique is the main manual technique we use. However, the choice of technique is determined by patient preference and response. See our Services page for further information on specific treatment techniques.
Chiropractic recognises there is a limitation of matter. This means Dr Hansor may not be able to take a 30-year-old injury that occurred in the spine and return it to the perfectly functioning spine of an 18-year-old. However, she is constantly surprised how well that the body can regenerate and recuperate even the most degenerated joints given time, opportunity and supported treatment.
For acute injuries we recommend an ice pack 10-15 minutes every couple of hours for the initial 24-48 hours. Ice reduces swelling and pain, as it assists to shut down pain firing pathways. If in doubt, go with ice. Always apply with a wet washer or towel in between, to prevent ice burning on the skin.
With assessment, treatment, guidance and support.
