You may not be aware that your posture and jaw alignment
could be responsible for chronic pain conditions such as
headaches, neck pain, back pain and even migraines. To manage
chronic pain we combine both chiropractic and dentistry skills
in a holistic approach.
is one of the few experienced practices in Sydney in this
field and we work closely with leading chiropractors in this
area. One of the treatment protocols we use is the Chirodontic
system devised by Dr Bob Walker of the United States. We have
both trained in this system and have all the equipment available
to be able to analyse and treat a patient under this system.
In recent years there has been extensive
research into this field, investigating the close link between
posture, lower jaw position and the muscle tension in the
head and neck area which can cause pain.
We are particularly
interested in helping chronic pain patients who may be
pain in the head and neck area, muscle
migraines, jaw joint pains, TMD ( Temporomandibular Dysfunction),
postural problems or clenching and grinding of teeth.
When assessing a chronic pain patient
it is important to consider the patient as a whole, both
structurally and functionally looking
at head, neck, thorax, pelvis and feet as well as physiologically,
considering hormones, nutrition and emotional state.
holistic approach means we can determine exactly what drives
the individual patient's symptoms and have the possibility
to be able to treat the cause and not the symptoms.
Chirodontics will usually involve appointments with both
and the dental practitioner.
