A common misconception about chiropractors is that we are ‘back crackin’ bone doctors’. In fact, we actually work with the nervous system.
It just so happens that the spine is wrapped around the central nervous system – so it’s an easy assumption to make. (And ‘Nervous System Doctor’’ tends toward the too wordy, doesn’t it?)
The basic premise of how chiropractic works is simply that we remove interference from the nervous system so your body is free to function optimally.
There are many unique and diverse ways to do this, and we offer a wide range of clinical techniques and strategies at Helena Valley Chiropractic, delivered by exceptionally skilled chiropractors safely and professionally, with bucketloads of warmth, care, and consideration.
The truth is, there’s no magic fix
But for those of you who like to ‘look under the hood’:
N.O.T or Neuro-Organisational Technique
Neuro-Organisational Technique aims to restore fluidity and movement to the function of your nervous system, ensuring direct communication from your body to your brain and your brain to the rest of your body!

All of our Chiropractors use manual adjusting techniques, including gentle and high velocity thrusts to create movement in the joints of the spine.
When stress occurs in your body, your muscles and tendons can bind up to protect the area from further injury. Our Chiropractors spend time releasing these binds to ensure the most effective and precise adjustments.
The tools of our trade, Chiropractors use activators to create short, sharp, spring-loaded thrusts to specific areas that encourage your body to generate blood flow and healing.
Pregnancy and Post-Partum Chiropractic
At one of the most vulnerable and important stages of a family’s life, our Chiropractic care is catered to the specific areas of growth and development of baby, and as a restorative, supporting accompaniment to the post-partum period.
Complimenting Chiropractic care, therapeutic remedial massage provides soft-tissue musculoskeletal relief and release. When stress and tension build up in your body, it can result in a range of physical and mental problems. Our massage therapists understand the importance of having proper circulation and flexibility, in order to deal with the pace of modern life. We offer a range of massage solutions to suit everybody.
What if it’s not about fixing what’s ‘broken’?
At Helena Valley Chiropractic, we believe in a pro-active approach to health care.
In other words, we love to work on your resilience to illness, injury and stress, rather than waiting until the damage is done before stepping in. We do this by helping you build strong, balanced musculo-skeletal foundations to support thriving nervous systems. (You probably wont even notice the flu you didn’t get this winter.)
When you start care with us, we don’t just want to know about car accidents, sporting injuries, or how you survived the Pandemic.
Niggles matter. We are more interested in the things you wouldn’t bother mentioning to other health care providers. Things like; how’s your sleep? Are you feeling blah? What’s your tummy doing? And does your wife gripe about your snoring/bad memory/burping?
We want to know, and believe us, it matters.
