What is Chiropractic?

It’s natural, safe and scientific!

Being natural and non-invasive, chiropractic works with your amazing ability to self-heal and self-regulate. It does this via healthy communication between your brain and body. At times this communication can be blocked or interfered by improper position or motion of the bones of your spine (subluxation). When interference occurs so does our ability to function at 100%.

At OLIVE Chiropractic, we employ precise adjustments to realign the spine and remove these interferences. This process not only alleviates discomfort but also renews the body’s ability to function at its full potential. We see chiropractic care as a dynamic partnership between science, nature, and the individual, restoring balance and vitality for a healthier, more fulfilling life.

What can I get Chiropractic For?

Pain relief is often the initial catalyst that leads individuals to seek chiropractic care. Chiropractic stands out as an exceptionally effective approach for alleviating pain, regardless of its origin. Through precise adjustments and targeted interventions, we work to restore proper alignment, alleviate muscle tension, and optimise nervous system function.

What sets chiropractic care apart is its comprehensive approach to pain management. While some treatments may provide temporary relief, chiropractic aims to address the underlying issues contributing to discomfort. By doing so, it not only offers relief but also significantly reduces the likelihood of pain reoccurring. Our focus extends beyond immediate symptoms to help you build a foundation of long-term well-being.

At OLIVE Chiropractic, we’re dedicated to not only helping you find relief from pain but also empowering you to enjoy a healthier, more pain-free future.

Here are some examples of pome pain or discomfort that chiropractic can help alleviate:

Neck Pain

Neck pain is a common discomfort that can range from mild to severe, affecting people of all ages. Symptoms often include stiffness, muscle tightness, and aching in the neck region. It can also lead to headaches, limited mobility, and radiating pain into the shoulders or arms.

Chiropractic care offers a non-invasive and effective approach to addressing neck pain. Through precise adjustments and tailored treatments, chiropractors can realign the spine, alleviate muscle tension, and improve overall neck function.

Back Pain

Back pain is a widespread discomfort that varies in intensity and can affect people of all ages. Common symptoms include localised aching, muscle stiffness, and limited mobility. Back pain may also radiate into the legs, causing additional discomfort.

Chiropractic care provides a holistic and non-invasive approach to managing back pain. Chiropractors use precise adjustments and customised therapies to realign the spine, alleviate muscle tension, and enhance overall back function

Sports Injury

Sports injuries are common among athletes and active individuals, often characterised by symptoms like pain, swelling, stiffness, and reduced range of motion. These injuries can encompass a wide range of types, commonly sprains and strains.

Chiropractic care plays a vital role in sports injury management and prevention. Chiropractors utilise targeted treatments, including adjustments and rehabilitation exercises, to address the root causes of injuries, enhance biomechanics, and promote faster recovery

Nerve Pain

Nerve pain can manifest as sharp, burning, or tingling sensations and is typically caused by nerve damage or irritation. Symptoms may include numbness, weakness, and shooting pain.

Chiropractic care offers a conservative approach to alleviate nerve pain. Chiropractors use gentle adjustments and targeted therapies to address spinal misalignments that may be contributing to nerve compression. By restoring proper alignment and reducing pressure on nerves, chiropractic can provide relief from nerve pain and support the body's natural healing processes

Bad Posture

Bad posture is characterised by an incorrect alignment of the spine and body, often leading to symptoms like back and neck pain, muscle tension, and stiffness. Over time, poor posture can result in more severe issues, including reduced mobility and a heightened risk of musculoskeletal problems.

Chiropractic care offers a proactive approach to address bad posture. Chiropractors assess spinal alignment and provide targeted adjustments to correct misalignments. By improving posture and spinal health, chiropractic not only alleviates discomfort but also prevents potential long-term consequences, supporting overall physical well-being and quality of life

Joint Pain

Joint pain is characterized by discomfort, stiffness, and reduced mobility in the joints, affecting daily life and activities. Symptoms may range from mild to severe and can impact various joints throughout the body.

Chiropractic care provides a holistic approach to address joint pain. Chiropractors use precise adjustments to restore joint function, alleviate pain, and enhance overall mobility. By targeting the root causes of joint discomfort, chiropractic not only provides relief but also helps prevent further degeneration, promoting long-term joint health and improved quality of life

Headaches & Migraines

Headaches and migraines are often accompanied by symptoms like nausea, sensitivity to light, and impaired daily functioning. These conditions can significantly impact quality of life.

Chiropractic care offers a holistic approach to address headaches and migraines, focusing on identifying and correcting spinal misalignments that may contribute to these conditions


Arthritis is a chronic condition characterised by joint inflammation, leading to symptoms like pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility. It can significantly impact daily life and activities, especially as it progresses.

Chiropractic care offers a supportive approach to address arthritis. Chiropractors use precise adjustments and gentle therapies to improve joint function, alleviate pain, and enhance mobility. While unable to cure arthritis, it can provide relief, improve quality of life, and promote long-term joint health

What Chiropractic Techniques do OLIVE Chiropractic use?

At OLIVE Chiropractic, we employ a variety of specialised techniques to cater to the unique needs and preferences of our patients. These include:

Thompson Technique uses a special table with several segments called drop pieces. The drop pieces help to minimise the force used during an adjustment, making it more comfortable for the person getting adjusted.

Diversified Technique uses specific motion palpation and leg checks to uncover an imbalance or nervous system interference in the spine. A gentle impulse is then administered into the system. The energy delivered during the thrust may produce a slight “popping” sound from the shifting of gas and fluids in the joint.

Activator Methods uses a small, hand-held metal instrument that delivers a gentle thrust, which is barely noticeable to the person. The thrust is developed from the rapid release of a compressed spring inside the instrument. Cavitation or “popping”, of the joint typically does not occur.

Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment used on pregnant women. It reduces interference to the nervous system, improving function of the pelvic muscles and ligaments.

Frequently Asked Questions

Vertebral Subluxations occur when the vertebra moves into the incorrect position and interferes with the flow of information or nerve messages between your brain and body.This may affect muscles, cells and organs they communicate with.

Most subluxations exist without pain or discomfort. Chiropractors locate, analyse and correct subluxations.

Subluxations are caused by stresses that the body has been unable to adapt to. This may include:

Physical: injuries, accidents, slips, falls, whiplash, prolonged sitting and standing, poor posture, the birth process itself exerts pressure on the spine and nervous system. The use of forceps and vacuum extraction can create further distress.

Chemical:  toxins, additives and chemicals in foods, smoking, medications, environmental pollutants, alcohol and sugar.

Mental & Emotional: upsets, arguments, personal traumas, work or relationship pressure, life or career changes. These upset body chemistry, which disrupt the tone of both muscles and ligaments resulting in subluxation.

Health has been defined as “a state of optimal physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or illness.” Unfortunately, many of us will not consider our health until it is greatly compromised. Life can be so busy we forget to prioritise sustainable healthy lifestyle habits. We are each inherently designed to be healthy.

Chiropractic care works to restore and strengthen that inborn capacity through a proactive health model that focuses on you staying healthy for a lifetime.

Some individuals may have concerns about chiropractic care, fearing discomfort or the notion of bones cracking. However, it’s important to clarify that chiropractic treatment can be entirely painless and gentle.

The ‘cracking’ sound often associated with chiropractic adjustments is simply the release of gas bubbles in synovial joint fluid, a natural and painless occurrence.

At OLIVE Chiropractic, we prioritise your comfort and well-being, offering a range of gentle joint adjusting techniques and muscle releases. We encourage active participation and value your preferences, ensuring you feel at ease during treatment. Our diverse chiropractic techniques cater to various needs, emphasising a safe and comfortable experience for all our patients

The duration of chiropractic treatment varies depending on the individual’s condition. Acute injuries may resolve relatively quickly, while chronic or long-term issues might require ongoing care.

Our experienced chiropractors will assess your case, considering factors like the nature and duration of your problem, age, and overall health. They will recommend a treatment schedule tailored to your needs, and regular check-ins will ensure progress is on track.

Additionally, some patients choose to continue chiropractic care as part of a wellness routine, helping the body function optimally and prevent future issues, much like dental checkups maintain oral health
