Providing chiropractic care to people of all ages
We believe chiropractic care is a safe and effective health care option for people of all ages. Your chiropractor will always consider your stage of life and level of spinal health before choosing the right care for you.
One of our highest priorities at Sexton Chiropractic is promoting spinal health in children. Ensuring optimum spinal function during the growing years is an important step in fostering life long spinal health.
Children may experience spinal stress through poor posture and the many knocks and falls of childhood. Babies may experience significant spinal stress even with a relatively normal birth process, or by other factors such as postures or positioning.
Chiropractors are trained to provide care using techniques appropriate for each stage of life, including extremely gentle procedures to improve the function of little spines.
Likewise, throughout adolescence and the various stages of adulthood, your chiropractor will adapt techniques to suit the patient. Chiropractors have 5 years of university based education and a wide range of techniques and lifestyle interventions to implement in an appropriate care plan.
Our spine provides important sensory feedback to the central nervous system which can subsequently impact our general wellbeing at each stage of life. A healthy spine from a young age is therefore an important element in the health and performance of human beings.
Spinal health and general wellbeing
We believe there are significant health benefits in maintaining optimal spinal health throughout life. We have a strong focus on helping people relieve symptoms as quickly as possible, however we are equally committed to promoting greater wellbeing by optimising the health and function of your spine and nervous system.
We believe care of your spine should start in the growing years when patterns of posture and movement are developing that may last a lifetime.
We recommend a lifestyle approach to health care. We aim to work with your body, not against it. We promote the philosophy of nature first and the basic guidelines of eating well, moving well and thinking well.
Chiropractic may also be an effective approach for the management of conditions such as back pain, neck pain and headache.
Low back pain is one of the most common and most costly health problems of our society. Most people will experience low back pain at least once in their lifetime and many will experience ongoing or intermittent back pain throughout their life.
Neck pain and stiffness is one of the most common ailments people experience in today’s sedentary, screen focussed and often stressful environment. Many people learn to live with the symptoms of neck pain for some time before seeking any care beyond simple pain relief medication.
One of the more common reasons people seek chiropractic care is for the treatment of headache and migraine. The actual cause of headache in an individual can be due to various factors occurring separately or in combination.
Neck problems are often associated with headache.
