Spinal Correction Thornbury
Throughout our life, we experienced many forms of trauma. Some are micro traumas that are caused by looking down at our phones and screens for long periods, repetitive strains or poor posture. Others are macro traumas like sporting injuries or car accidents. All, however, can cause pain, inflammation, discomfort and compensatory misalignments.
Our bodies are designed to be healthy but unfortunately, modern people lead pretty unnatural lives. Poor movement and bad habits along with physical, chemical and emotional stressors, can all lead to an overload on our spinal cord and nervous system. Biomechanical misalignments can cause several problems including pain, bad posture, lack of mobility and even reduce your quality of life.
Our local chiropractic clinic offers spinal correction treatment accessible to residents of Thornbury and the surrounding communities. It’s a long term solution to help combat and maintain optimal health and movement.

What is a spinal correction?
The initial approach to biomechanical misalignment is to overcome pain and inflammation. The long term solution is to change the structure of the spine, to prevent repeat injuries or episodes.
Chiropractors will either use their hands or a special device to apply a controlled thrust to a section of your spine during treatment.
When can a spinal correction help?
A corrective approach to musculoskeletal care can be used to combat a number of spinal conditions that typically affect the nervous system. Chiropractic treatment is a safe and effective alternative to other more invasive treatments. If you suffer from any of the following conditions, then a spinal corrective approach to treatment may suit you best
Cervical spine, lumbar spine, neck and lower back pain
Pain in these areas can often lead to immobility, reduction in quality of life and even pain in other areas of the body such as arm pain and leg pain. A spinal corrective approach is a wonderful alternative to medications and back surgery for those who suffer from back and neck pain.
A spinal corrective approach can help reduce your pain, remove stiffness, and improve mobility, allowing you to live a full and happy life and saving you the costs of a spine surgeon.
Disc prolapse can often occur as a result of excess stress on the disc due to poor posture, being overweight, trauma, and other conditions such as spinal stenosis. Spinal correction is an effective treatment for correcting posture and can help alleviate the symptoms of a herniated disc.
Spinal corrections can help treat symptoms of scoliosis, a condition that causes posture, back pain, and limited range of motion as a result of abnormal curvature of the spine.
Vertigo and dizziness
It is normal to feel dizzy or unaware of your surroundings after an injury. For some, however, this can persist and make even the simplest of tasks seem challenging. Vertigo occurs when a disproportion of nervous system signals reach the brain and a spinal correction can help restore the normal balance.
Note: Long-term spinal correction treatment is only beneficial to those who comply with therapy. If, for any reason, you are unable to continue with treatment, then contact us so that we can adjust your treatment plan to your needs.
We offer a number of different treatment options like massage and rehabilitation exercises to help alleviate your symptoms.

At your first visit, your chiropractor will assess your overall health, take a look at your symptoms, and perform any necessary diagnostic tests prior to treatment. The length of your treatment session will depend on your specific condition.
