Your Cranbourne chiropractor, Dr Shaun Beovich, uses a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach used is based on clinical assessment and years of experienceActivator Adjusting Instrument
The Activator Methods® Adjusting Instrument is a handheld spring-loaded tool that delivers a consistent low-force, high-speed thrust.
Because it’s many times faster than adjustments delivered by hand, the body rarely tightens to resist, making adjustments comfortable and effective. Often used for younger ones and the elderly it is also effective for those after a more gentle approach as there is no popping or twisting involved. It’s also helpful for adjusting elbows, wrists, knees and other joints of the body.
This common technique is done by using careful positioning of the patient while the chiropractor uses quick thrusts in several small, successive areas in order to align the spinal column, improve joint dysfunction and restore more comfortable and proper movement.Often a popping sound is heard however this is not always necessary. The key with spinal adjustments is getting movement restored to the joint.
SOT is a chiropractic technique that focuses on the relationship between the sacrum at the bottom of the spine and the occiput at the top of the spine. It has a focus on the flow of cerebrospinal fluid which is important for the nutrition of the brain and spinal cord. SOT uses triangular blocks placed under the pelvis which allows your body weight and gravity to make gentle corrections.
