Darlinghurst Chiropractic Centre offers a range of services including:

Chiropractic

Chiropractic is based on the premise that the body is a self-healing, self-regulating entity. Chiropractors understand that certain physical, chemical and emotional stressors can inhibit this innate ability.

“Chiropractic” is derived from Greek words meaning ‘done by hand’. The Chiropractor uses detailed history, orthopaedic examination, functional neurology and, where required, x-ray and imaging to develop a thorough understanding of your physical health and the underlying cause of your dis-ease. Then, using Chiropractic Adjustments and, Muscle Release/Activation, combined with comprehensive postural advice and exercises, the Chiropractor restores function and balance to the spine and nervous system and thus the whole body.

Massage

When muscles and tendons become fatigued, knotted, damaged, tight or immobile, Remedial Massage offers a healing treatment that utilises any one of several techniques to locate problems and support and speed up the body’s own healing process. It can be strong deep tissue massage or a softer relaxation massage depending on your situation or preference.

The massage is generally applied directly to the skin using lubricating oils. The massage helps to increase blood flow, shift toxins and relieve tension and stress.

Our massage therapists at Darlinghurst are very experienced and work in conjunction with the other practitioners at the clinic to give you the best care needed.

Podiatry

Your feet have a direct impact on the rest of your body. Properly made, comfortable, custom made orthotics can gently assist in reducing problems associated with pressure points, muscle strain and abnormal forces on the ankles, knees, hips and spine. Over time, custom orthotics will help to support your every movement bringing you relief from fatigue and pain, allowing you to enjoy daily activities once again.

Cupping

Cupping is one of the oldest therapeutic practices in the world. It involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. This helps to move stagnant blood and energy, in order to promote healing.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a collection of procedures involving the insertion of very fine sterilised needles on specific points and various depths of the body surface. Stimulating these specific acupuncture points refines and corrects the imbalances of the body and as a result induces therapeutic effects.

Infrared sauna

Far infrared sauna heaters are heated by metallic or ceramic elements that emit a narrow spectrum of mainly far infrared energy. Research shows that the infrared can penetrate deeper into the body and for this reason they get great results at much lower temperatures than traditional saunas. Not only is the cooler temperature more comfortable for people, but far infrared also cleanses the tissues more effectively. The heat is not just effective for killing bacteria but has a whole host of other detoxification effects, assist in weight loss plus relieving musculo-skeletal aches and pains. Our Sauna is extremely large and comfortably fits 2 people. Towels can be hired for $2 each and shower facilities are available for $5/person.

Cold laser

Cold Laser Therapy or Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a treatment that utilises specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and is thought to help accelerate the healing process. It can be used on patients who suffer from a variety of acute and chronic conditions in order to help eliminate pain, swelling, reduce spasms and increase functionality.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese Herbal Medicine, along with the other components of Chinese medicine, is based on the concepts of Yin and Yang. It is a holistic and natural health care system that dates back at least 2,000 years. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) stimulates the body’s own healing mechanisms and takes into account all aspects of a patient’s life, rather than just several obvious signs or symptoms.
