Your spine keeps you upright and allows you to move. Plus, it helps protect your nervous system – the communication pathway between your brain and body. Our chiropractors take your spinal health very seriously.
Changes in alignment or posture cause increased pressure on muscles, joints and nerves. Daily stressors like sitting and lifting cause the spine to compensate and the alignment to shift. This is where the problem starts.
As chiropractors we take a holistic approach to helping you heal. Along with chiropractic adjustments, your chiropractor will incorporate stretches, rehabilitative exercises, and ergonomic advice.
At Strathalbyn Chiropractic Centre, we offer quality Chiropractic care in a family friendly environment. Here is what to expect in our practice.
You will leave our office feeling understood. We take the time to get to know you or your family, and your problem. In order to best help you we will perform a thorough clinical history.
Our comprehensive examination process includes neurological, orthopaedic and musculoskeletal tests all designed to establish an accurate diagnosis. You may need to be referred for x-rays or additional tests at this stage.
Once we have all the information about your case, we will explain our findings to you in a clear concise manner. There are no hidden surprises here. We want you to feel informed at all stages of your care.
Based on our findings we will create a personalised treatment plan to get you feeling great again. We include exercises, as well as lifestyle advice to give you a well rounded approach.

The number of adjustments varies with each patient and their individual health goals. Many patients sense progress within a week to two weeks of frequent visits. Visits become less often as your spine stabilises. In chronic cases, complete healing can take months or even years.
During a Chiropractic adjustment the two opposing surfaces of the joint are stretched. This creates a low pressure inside the joint. The low pressure allows gas bubbles to form inside the joint making a popping sound. Just like when you open a champagne bottle and get all the bubbles and pop! The sound is interesting, but it isn’t a guide to the quality or value of the adjustment. In fact in our clinic we use a variety of techniques, some of which may not make a sound at all, this may be the best technique for you, your Chiropractor will specifically tailor to your situation to get the best results.
Although chiropractic care works well for a lot of people, it may not be for everyone. If this is the case for you, we will be sure to refer you to another healthcare professional who can help you.
