Our Practice Objective
Our goals are all about helping people of all ages attain a state of optimal physical health and well being through correction of vertebral subluxations.
Vertebral subluxation is a condition where one or more of the 24 vertebra in the spinal column no longer functions as it is designed to. This poor joint function of the spine can cause irritation to spinal nerve tissues, thus interfering with the nerves’ ability to transfer impulses to other organs and tissues in the body, which can directly and adversely affect your overall health.
Our practice objective is to restore proper joint function by properly correcting spinal fixations. The goal of these adjustments are to help your body function at it’s highest possible potential.
Indumed Magnetic Field Therapy is a new development based on the simulations of the naturally occurring electromagnetic waves which exist between the earth's surface and the ionosphere.
This unit generates an electromagnetic pulse of very low strength which is similar in nature and intensity to the magnetic field of the earth.
This low field strength is an almost natural field which is much more in harmony with the body's own energies than are some other magnetic therapies of greater strength.
Research shows that magnetic field therapy of this nature has a positive effect on the integrity of the cell-membrane as well as improving the cellular communication via the nerve synapses.
Ergonomic assessments, also referred to as workstation assessments, ensure that a worker's workstation is ergonomically designed to minimise the risk of injury and maximise productivity.
Assessment are also conducted:
- to support the return to work of an injured worker by ensuring that their workstation is designed to minimise any discomfort as they recover from their injury and prevent any aggravation of the injury
for workers who work from home, to ensure their home work environment is safe and ergonomically designed.
A brief assessment is offered and designed to ensure correct workstation set-up. These checklist based assessments are a cost effective way of preventing any injury, pain or discomfort for an individual or groups of employees.
Where an individual is already experiencing pain or discomfort, or has an injury or disabilty, we conduct a thorough assessment to ensure they can work safely and comfortably. The assessment helps employers to meet their duty of care with a formal report provided following the assessement.
All assessments are conducted by experienced occupational therapists, physiotherapists or exercise physiologists and covers:
- physical and muscular work demands
- equipment and workplace design
- environmental factors (lighting, noise and temperature]
- keyboard use
- pause-stretch exercises.
