"Chiro" is a Greek word meaning "to do by hand" and in Chirofix, it implies our hands-on approach to care as well as being qualified Chiropractors.
The "fix" in Chirofix, implies that we are serious about achieving the best result possible for your condition for the long term. We are a result driven clinic.
We understand that some problems can not be fixed, however we are committed to improving and managing our patients condition to the best of our abilities.
We pride ourselves for providing quality multi-modal care to one patient at a time. Therefore a follow up consultation are approximately between 20 to 30 min long.
The Chirofix care plan is based on three core areas
ADJUST - the articulations of our Spine and other joints to through chiropractic adjustments
RELEASE - targeted soft-tissue structures through remedial massage techniques and/or dry needling, stretching
STRENGTHEN - deactivated, weakened, injured muscles and tendons & correction of dysfunctional movement pattern.
Passive care to Active care
Passive care refers to the acute phase of care, we take control and provide timely treatment sessions for a quick recovery.
As your condition improves, we then target the core dysfunction that led to the pain in the first place.
In this phase of care it is a mix or passive and active care (treatment and home exercise plan). The more active care the less treatment is needed.
Education about your condition, ergonomic advice and exercise prescription EMPOWERS you to take care of your condition.
It is recommended having a treament session from time to time (once a month or two months), just like going to your dentist every 6 months for a clean up. Another easy way to understand is to imagine that you body is like a car. Your car needs servicing every 3 months (for example) or 10,000 km whichever comes first.
Some occupations are taxing on our bodys. For example, Construction workers, sports people and athletes require regular treatment sessions to avoid injury.
