Peak Potential Chiropractic:
Types Of Care

Chiropractors in Mentone

At Peak Potential Chiropractic education is paramount to helping you and your body achieve optimum health.

At Peak Potential Chiropractic, we are committed to helping you reach the best state of health that is possible for you at this point in your life.

For this reason we will usually recommend that we provide care that addresses any underlying structural problems.

Our recommendations are always based on what we consider will provide you with the best health results for the months, years and decades to come.

Relief Health Care »
Broken Chain

Fixing the underlying problem, as opposed to simply trying to patch it, adds strength to the entire chain.

Relief care is designed to address your current symptoms, or specific problem, but does not usually address any underlying structural problem. Many people will choose a relief option for their health, thinking that this is the cheapest or quickest way out of their current distress.

Obviously, if your current problem is the result of an underlying structural problem, the symptoms that you are currently experiencing may return at a later stage. This means that whilst the symptom may disappear temporarily the problem may not and it may become a long term problem.

Committed to Helping You

At Peak Potential, we are committed to helping you reach the best state of health that is possible for you at this point in your life. For this reason, relief care is very rarely our best recommendation for you.

Whilst some people choose to receive chiropractic care only when they are in pain, this approach may not do anything to slow, stop, or even prevent degeneration of the spine over time.

Chiropractic Care That Meets Your Goals

Whilst we are committed to providing you with chiropractic care that meets your means and goals, understand that our recommendations are based on what we consider will provide you with the best health results both now and in the future.

Corrective Health Care »
Braces

Braces are often used to help create a healthy smile. Corrective chiropractic care helps to build a healthy spine.

Corrective chiropractic programs are designed to address the underlying structural problem, or repair it to as near normal as possible. Most people are familiar with the benefits of orthodontic care to help straighten teeth but not as many are aware that a properly aligned and functioning spine may be necessary for optimal health.

Tailored to Each Individual Case

Corrective programs are tailored to each individual case. Much like using braces for your teeth, spinal correction may take anywhere from a few months to a few years. The frequency of chiropractic adjustments required can differ for each case. Your chiropractor will clearly outline the frequency and length of care that they expect you will require before you get started.

What’s Included?

Specific Adjustments

Specific chiropractic adjustments are applied to assist in adding movement to the spine and retrain the nervous system and support tissues.

Exercises

You will be given specific postural exercises tailored to your needs. These exercises will be given to balance and strengthen your muscles and ligaments.

Regular Progress Reviews

Your progress reviews are designed to track your progress, as well as addressing any additional health concerns that you may have. Click here for more information.

Education

Our educational workshops are designed to teach you all of the things that you need to know to look after your health in between adjustments.

At Peak Potential we are committed to providing you with the best care possible.

Wellness Care »
Wellness care at Peak Potential Chiropractic

Wellness care is designed to maintain the ideal position of the spine whilst allowing optimal function of all parts of the body.

What is Wellness Care?

Wellness care is for those who have a spine which is in an ideal position, or as close to ideal as they wish to reach at this point in their lives. Wellness care aims to help maintain the ideal position of the spine.

How frequently do I need to go?

The frequency of chiropractic adjustments for wellness care will vary for each individual case, depending on your lifestyle and the degree of correction that you have achieved. At Peak Potential we are committed to providing you with the best care possible.

Children’s Posture »

How to Check Your Child’s Posture:

Remember to check your child’s posture standing without their backpack, as well as with their backpack.

Poor posture may be a sign of an underlying spinal problem, and if left uncorrected may cause serious damage in later life.

If you detect any changes in your child’s posture, or you are unsure about what you see, have your child’s spine checked by a chiropractor as soon as possible.

When looking at your child’s posture from the side, these 3 points should be in line:

  1. The hole in the ear
  2. The middle of the shoulder
  3. The middle of the hip

The points are shown on the diagrams above.

If your child’s head is protruding forward, or their shoulder falls behind their hip, there is abnormal stress on your child’s spine and this may lead to long term damage to their spine and nervous system. This abnormal stress may also lead to the development of neck pain, back pain, headaches and poor health.

When looking at your child’s posture from the front, both shoulders should be the same height. (See Figure C)

If one shoulder is lower than the other this can be a sign of scoliosis, and should be professionally checked by a chiropractor

Chiropractic Techniques »

We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on a variety of factors too numerous to describe here.

Chiropractic adjusting image

Think of an adjustment as “tuning” a piano, adjusting each string so it produces the perfect tone.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:

CBP®

Clinical Biomechanics of Posture® is focused on producing improved posture, balance, spinal alignment and restoration of essential spinal curves. read more»

Diversified

After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints. read more»

Activator Methods®

This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust. read more»

SOT®

SOT® stands for Sacro Occipital Technique®, a chiropractic technique designed to help normalise the relationship between the pelvis and the head.

The integrity of the spine, and the function of the nervous system it protects, begins with the pelvis. This foundation is constantly subjected to the pull of gravity. When stability is lost, it produces effects throughout your body. read more»

If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let us know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
