The Corrective Chiropractic technology that sets us apart
Keeping up to date with the latest technology, research and trends is very important to us. Outlined below are some of the corrective chiropractic technology’s that we use at Align Corrective Chiropractic in Durban.
Corrective Chiropractic Technology: The Assessment
Digital X rays:
We have our own on-site digital x-ray machine and software which helps us to accurately measure the shape, alignment and angles of your spine. This information is essential when considering Corrective Chiropractic care. These objective measurements give us a goal to work towards. They enable us to be highly specific when it comes to the care we provide and the corrective treatment plans that we design to correct the shape of your spine. The best part is, we can compare your spine to the ideal model. You can easily see how close or how far you are from the ideal.
We use specialised software to take photographs of you standing in a relaxed, comfortable posture from the front and side. We then analyse these photographs to compare your posture to the ideal posture. Again, this gives us an objective measurement which we can re-measure at regular intervals. At your report visit we will show you all your results on a big screen TV. Many of our patients are both shocked and intrigued to see what their spines look like in comparison to what they should look like.
Corrective Chiropractic Technology: The Treatment
At Align Corrective Chiropractic in Durban we use several different devices to help our patients make the best possible Corrective changes. Here are just a few examples of what we do differently to help our patients make long term structural changes to their spines.
The Chiropractic remodelling devices that we use are specially designed orthotics for the spine. Your chiropractor will suggest a remodelling device based on your x rays and posture assessment. They are used as an add-on to your in-office treatment. You will perform this traction at home to remodel and traction the spine towards the ideal shape.
At Align Corrective Chiropractic we have our own Vibration Plate that our patients can use before or after their adjustment. Whole body vibration has a number of health benefits, and when used in conjunction with corrective chiropractic therapies, it can assist the corrective process.
Certain types of abnormal postural patterns respond very well to weighted exercises. Have you ever carried a heavy back pack on your back? The extra weight on your back will cause you to automatically lean forward to balance out this weight. We can combine this effect with exercises to change your posture. As an example, if your head shifts to the right and we strap a weight pad to the right side of your head, your head will automatically shift to the left to balance out this additional weight. You can actively retrain your muscles and neurological system to hold your head in a better alignment.
