Undergoing regular chiropractic adjustment treatment has a number of benefits. The exact benefits you’ll see as a result of experiencing chiropractic adjustments will depend on why you begin the treatment, to begin with.

Benefits Of Chiropractic

Here are some of the most commonly experienced results of undergoing adjustments by a chiropractor:

If you’re suffering from high blood pressure, chiropractic adjustments have been known to reduce blood pressure for up to six months following treatment.

Chiropractic adjustments are a non-invasive technique commonly used to alleviate neck pain, and is often seen as an alternative to taking pain relief medication.

Similarly to helping to abate the symptoms of neck pain, chiropractic adjustments are often recommended to patients that experience regular back pain.

Regular chiropractic adjustments have been reported as reducing the effects of chronic inflammation by releasing tension on the affected areas.

Tension headaches and migraines can be caused by back pain, which regular chiropractic adjustment can help to reduce the effects of.

Chiropractic adjustments have been known to reduce the pressure felt on the sciatic nerve, reducing the symptoms of sciatica and providing relief for a period following the adjustment.

If you’re an athlete, regular chiropractic adjustments help your body to keep in top shape, meaning you can perform at a better level and for longer periods of time.

Chiropractic adjusting is increasingly being used to alleviate the symptoms of vertigo due to the ways in which it targets the vertebrae that are causing the feelings of disorientation, dizziness and nausea.

Having regular chiropractic adjustments can reduce the symptoms of acid reflux as the treatment works on improving what’s referred to as the “gut-brain connection”.

John Ryan is an internationally know massage therapist and instructor who travelled Australia, New Zealand, Dubai, England, Ireland, Hawaii and India teaching courses for the school of Natural Therapies.

He specialises in a unique style of massage, body work and breath work that helps to restore balance to the body by finding tension and realising it. This unblocks the the energy pathways known as meridians.

Your massage will be different every time as it will be tailored to your particular condition and needs on the day. This style of massage is particularly helpful in treating many of the problems suffered by sportspeople and tradesmen.

Benefits Of Massage

Having massage therapy on a regular basis can see you reap a range of benefits. These benefits vary between clients and largely depend on your overall health. Your massage therapist will discuss the intended benefits as a result of treatment prior to its commencement.

Here are some of the benefits you can expect to see:

If you’re experiencing a high level of stress, whether it’s due to your work or personal life, regular massage therapy is an ideal way to encourage the release of built-up tension.

Massage therapy is a way of improving your circulation across wide areas of your body, resulting in a healthier appearance and feeling.

Regular massage therapy improves the function of your immunity system by encouraging the release of toxins, mentioning you’ll be less susceptible to common illness.

By removing tension from the pent-up areas in your body, massage therapy helps to temporarily lower your heart rate and blood pressure, leading to a more relaxed state of mind.

Having regular massage therapy can improve your energy levels due to the way in which the treatment stimulates your muscles and encourages reparative processes to begin.

If you struggle with anxiety then engaging in relaxation services such as massage therapy can help you to unwind and reach a calmer level.

Dry needling works to treat your pain and impaired movement. Your chiropractor will use fine needles to target trigger points in your skeletal muscle. These trigger points are often felt as knots, and they can cause pain when they’re squeezed or pressed. When dry needling is used, it causes tiny injuries which can promote natural healing and an overall improvement in your pain and discomfort.

The goal of dry needling is to release trigger points in the muscle that are causing pain. The needles used are thin and do not inject any medication, so the treatment is relatively painless. You don’t need to live with pain and discomfort. Our friendly, professional team at CQ Chiropractic Gladstone is here to help you restore your comfort, confidence, and quality of life.

Chiropractic Services FAQs

Chiropractic care is a natural, non-invasive form of healthcare that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine. It involves the use of hands-on spinal manipulation and other manual therapies to restore proper alignment and mobility of the spine and other joints, relieve pain and improve overall health and wellness.

Chiropractic care can help with a wide range of conditions related to the musculoskeletal system, including:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Sciatica
  • Whiplash
  • Sports injuries
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Scoliosis

Yes, chiropractic care is generally considered safe when performed by an experienced chiropractor. Chiropractors are highly trained healthcare professionals who are licensed and regulated by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). They use gentle, low-force techniques to manipulate the spine and other joints, and always take into account the patient’s age, medical history and overall health status before performing any adjustments.

During your first visit to a chiropractor, you’ll undergo a thorough physical examination and medical history review. The chiropractor will ask you about your symptoms, medical history and any medications you are currently taking. They’ll also perform a physical exam to evaluate your posture, range of motion and overall spinal health. Depending on your condition, the chiropractor may order X-rays or other diagnostic tests. After the examination, the chiropractor will create a personalised treatment plan for you, which may include chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, exercise and other therapies.

The number of chiropractic sessions you will need depends on your individual condition and health goals. Some patients may experience significant relief after just one or two sessions, while others may require ongoing care to manage chronic conditions or maintain their overall spinal health. Your chiropractor will work with you to develop a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and goals.

Many health insurance plans cover chiropractic care, but the extent of coverage may vary depending on the plan. It’s important to check with your insurance provider before scheduling a chiropractic appointment to determine what services are covered and what out-of-pocket costs you may incur. At Central Queensland Chiropractic Centre, we’re happy to work with most health insurance providers to help you get the care you need.

Yes, chiropractic care can be used alongside other medical treatments. Chiropractors often work in conjunction with other healthcare professionals, such as medical doctors, physiotherapists and massage therapists, to provide a comprehensive approach to patient care. Your chiropractor will communicate with your other healthcare providers to ensure that your treatment plan is coordinated and effective.

Acupuncture By Robyn Verdel

Robyn Verdel is an acupuncturist and a Chinese herbalist. She has worked in a number of clinics in Queensland including Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba, Rockhampton and Biloela. 

Robyn has now been servicing out at CQ Chiropractic Clinic in Gladstone for the past few years.

The origins of acupuncture can be traced back over 2000 years, making it one of the oldest health care systems in the world.  Today, we can support the treatment of a wide range of conditions with acupuncture and the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

Due to the effectiveness of acupuncture for pain, stress, chronic diseases and many more disorders, people are increasingly looking to acupuncture treatments for relief and hope. There is a great need for acupuncture for those who haven’t found success with Western treatments, aren’t eligible for certain surgeries or medicines, seek less intrusive more natural methods of assistance or are simply looking for further support with their current health goals.

Onsite X-Rays

Onsite X-rays are available at the Gladstone Clinic, if required. The images are emailed to Professional Radiology Outcomes, a team of chiropractic and medical radiologists who read the films and produce a written report.

Patients are given a disc of the images upon request.

All patients will receive a written report.
