What is multi modal Chiropractic care?

At Empowered Health Chiropractic, our Geelong chiropractors often hear that we are quite distinct from other health practitioners in the way we assess, treat and manage a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. We are commonly referred to as multi-modal chiropractors, meaning, we use a variety of methods to achieve optimal outcomes in pain relief, better movement and function for our clients. Whilst we incorporate traditional chiropractic care, we also utilise a variety of soft tissue therapies, dry needling, exercise and rehabilitation methods.

Our Geelong chiropractors understand no two people are the same, having a skillset of different strategies have enabled us at Empowered Health Chiropractic to effectively treat not only the problem at hand, but most importantly, each person individually and specifically.

Our techniques have helped our clients with low back painneck painheadachesTMJ painshoulder painsciaticadizziness & vertigo and more.

Manual chiropractic adjustments

Our aim with manual chiropractic adjustments is effective pain relief and quick improvements in joint and muscle function.

Often used as part of an overall management plan, in conjunction with other soft tissue therapy, exercise & rehabilitation.

Education

Education is essential to not only better understand your condition but also the causes underlying it.

This is important in the short & long-term when managing your condition between treatment and independently.

Knowing what lifestyle & activity modifications to make specifically to you, can allow your body to get back on track quicker.

Dry needling & other soft tissue therapies

Dry needling is another effective strategy we employ to reduce myofacial pain and promote better muscle function.

This may be in the form of traditional massage techniques, dry needling, active release technique (ART) and more.

Exercise & rehabilitation therapy

Our ultimate goal at Empowered Health, is to get you moving, feeling and functioning at your best long term.

An essential pillar of sustaining our outcomes is through home-care, strength and movement training.

Our Geelong Chiropractors want you to be feel empowered over your health condition, allowing you to take back control of your life.
