Chiropractic Pregnancy Care

Chiropractic & Pregnancy:

Doctor Carter has worked with the Bunbury Midwifes, Doulas, and Medical Practitioners for over a decade providing Chiropractic care via several different modified and classical techniques. One such specific chiropractic adjustment for pregnant mothers is the Webster Technique. Currently, many birth care providers are actively seeking his skills regarding this technique. Seeking chiropractic care early in pregnancy is a safe, effective way to support the natural process of birthing.

Back and Neck Pain Treatment

At our clinic in all cases, we take a thorough history of your condition and a physical examination.  We may also use X-rays, CT, MRI  and lab tests to determine what is appropriate for your spinal pain.  The treatment plan may involve manual or mechanically assisted adjustments in which Dr Carter will gently manipulate the joints, using a controlled, force to improve range and quality of motion.  The goals of chiropractic care include the restoration of function and prevention of injury in addition to back pain relief.

 

Caring for today’s athlete

Dean has a sound knowledge base of sports related injuries as well as return-to-play criteria. The clinic functions with multi-discipline health care providers such as doctors, physiotherapists, strength and conditioning coaches, exercise physiologists, and personal trainers just to name a few.

Many of today’s athletes utilise chiropractic to prevent and recover from injury as well as improve bio mechanical performance. Dr Carter is proficient in Dr Mark Charrettes Extremity Adjusting Protocols for injury prevention and rehabilitation.  Extremity adjustments and joint mobilisation for the care for shoulders, feet, ankles, hips, knees, fingers and wrists help restore normal motion to the joints that have become “restricted” ,or injured. This can reduce pain, improve motion, relax muscles, reduce nerve interference, and promote healing.  These techniques are ideally suited to help athletes reach their full potential in today’s competitive environment.

 

Equestrian Services

Whether the patient is human or animal, the basic chiropractic technique-manipulating the spine to return misaligned bones to their correct position is the same.  Equine chiropractic provides dramatic proof of the efficacy of this healing art, evidenced by greatly reduced recovery time following injuries.  Our practice is consistent with its allied health approach and intends for chiropractic equine care to complement traditional veterinary care, not replace it.  Equine chiropractic care is essential for the trainer who wants s that advantage on the track, and for the weekend equestrian who wants a smoother ride, or the dressage competitor who requires more flexibility.
