Our Techniques

We use a number of safe, gentle and highly-effective adjusting  approaches to help improve both spinal function and health as well as reduce nerve pressure. The proven approach we use is based not only on decades of experience helping thousands of patients but also literally thousands of hours of training and clinical development. If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let our team know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:

Koren Specific Technique (KST)

What is KST? In a few words it is 21st Century Chiropractic. It is a revolutionary new Chiropractic method that involves No Crack, No Pop, No Force! It is a gentle form of chiropractic delivered by an amazing instrument, 200 times faster than any highly skilled human hand. The Arthro-Stim Instrument delivers 12-14 spring cushioned “taps” per second to the joint or muscle allowing the body to correct itself. Being so gentle yet powerfully precise; that’s why it is particularly suitable for the young & the elderly and those that do not like being “cracked” or “twisted”. It releases tight “stuck” joints, unwinds postural distortions, relaxes muscles & creates better control, adaptation & co-ordination within the nervous system. 

Dr. Sascha is one of only a handful of Trained KST practitioners in Australia. Please request an information pack regarding this extraordinary technique. Contact us for more information.

Care For Your Whole Family

Chiropractic Care for Children

Chiropractors often find misalignment and abnormal spinal motion in children. This could occur during a traumatic birth or occur after injures, falls or prolonged poor postures. Children these days also have a lot more intense sporting and training regimes than in the past.  Children are also exposed to computers and tech devices from a much earlier age.  Life is arguably much faster and busier so stress could also be a factor in developing spinal problems.

First the chiropractor will examine your child’s entire spine for spinal misalignment (and abnormal spinal bio-mechanics). The more misalignment (and abnormal spinal bio-mechanics) present the more stress on the discs, joints, ligaments and muscles. 

Chiropractic adjustments to children are very gentle and low risk.

Paediatric TechniquesCaringbah Spinal Care are your family chiropractor in Caringbah

As a family chiropractic practice we also use a number of specialised paediatric techniques developed for analysing & adjusting our many baby & infant patients. Our paediatric techniques are very different to those typically used on adults & the pressure used is usually equivalent to that which is used to check the ripeness of a tomato. 

Spinal stress/injury can begin from the forces of the birthing process, with a lot of pressure being created at the cranial and upper neck regions of many newborns; especially if forceps or vacuum suction is used.

All the expected falls, thumps/bumps and injuries that occur as your child develops and explores their environment can place stress on the framework of your child’s growing body. 

Although a great deal more research needs to be conducted there is a growing body of evidence that many childhood issues can be effectively addressed with appropriate chiropractic care.
