Experiencing back pain?

Dr Helen applies the principles of Sacro-Occipital Technique (S.O.T.) and the diagnostic insights of Applied Kinesiology (A.K.) to offer a comprehensive solution for lower back pain. S.O.T. concentrates on balancing the relationship between the sacrum and the occiput, which can be particularly beneficial for relieving lower back stress. A.K., on the other hand, helps in identifying muscular imbalances or nutritional deficiencies that might be exacerbating the issue.

Lower back pain can be a persistent problem, often indicative of other underlying imbalances or lifestyle factors. Dr Helen believes in a preventive strategy and therefore recommends a general routine of chiropractic sessions. This continuity of care not only aims to relieve existing symptoms but also offers a preventive measure to reduce the likelihood of future lower back issues.

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.
