Experiencing hip pain?

Dr Helen harnesses the precision of Sacro-Occipital Technique (S.O.T.) and the diagnostic capabilities of Applied Kinesiology (A.K.) to comprehensively address hip pain. S.O.T. is instrumental in realigning the pelvis and sacrum, while A.K. helps identify possible muscular or nutritional imbalances contributing to the discomfort.

Given that hip pain often arises from a combination of factors like postural issues, muscular imbalances, or even nutritional deficiencies, Dr Helen recommends a regular schedule of preventative and routine chiropractic sessions. This proactive approach enables patients to not only manage current pain but also to avoid future issues by maintaining optimal hip function.

The three levels of care

Dr Helen follows a broad treatment paradigm for the three levels of care consisting of:

Level 1

We work to release the spine from its dominant holding pattern, allowing and aiding cerebrospinal fluid flow, which is so often reduced during stressful periods in life. We also focus on reducing muscle pain and tenderness and improving flexibility.

Level 2

We begin to correct secondary body patterns and further improve flexibility. We also correct any obvious nutritional deficits that begin to show up at this stage and continue to restore and normalise muscle and joint mobility.

Level 3

Continue to promote the body's natural intrinsic healing ability to aid the body in remaining in its optimum response pattern. This involves aiding and promoting cerebral spinal fluid flow, removal of spinal joint interference as far as possible and promoting strong muscle and ligament function.
