Chiropractic Care

The benefits of chiropractic care are wide-ranging and are beneficial for much more than just back pain. At Revolution Chiropractic, we’re one of just a handful of chiropractors throughout New Zealand who utilise structural chiropractic care. Structural adjustments throughout the body, and guided movement rehabilitation, help realign the body with the brain and result in a stronger, fully functioning system.

Conditions We See

In addition to back and neck pain, we regularly see patients who are experiencing:

  • Piriformis syndrome (pain or numbness in your butt, hip or upper leg)
  • Disc herniation, prolapse, and slipped discs
  • Cervical facet syndrome (a type of osteoarthritis)
  • Lumbar facet syndrome
  • Jaw pain
  • Whiplash
  • Shoulder pain
  • Arm pain
  • Scoliosis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Vertigo and dizziness

How We Help

When your joints (any joint) are misaligned, they cannot move correctly. When a joint does not move correctly, the stabilising muscles that support it become weak, and the nerve connection to those muscles diminishes when they are not used effectively. You will experience a loss in your range of motion and mobility over time, and the cycle worsens, with damage to the bones, joints, discs and nerves.

Specific to the spine, the spinal curves lose their most functional shape without proper movement of the joints and strengthening of the muscles and ligaments. Instead of acting like springs to distribute everyday forces, all the forces go onto the bones and discs of the spine and cause degeneration, damage/injury and other dysfunctions to occur.

Chiropractic adjustments are a natural and effective approach to restoring your spine, joints, muscles and nervous system health completely. Our team expertly addresses issues at their core in these systems, utilising specific chiropractic techniques to approach your case.

Whether you are an adult, elderly, pregnant, postnatal, or want your children or pets to be checked, we have a solution for you and your family.

What to Expect During Your Consult and First Appointment

Most traditional chiropractors will perform your consult and examination in 10 minutes and finish it with some spine adjustments within the remaining five or so minutes. This method does not address the root cause of your pain or discomfort.

When you schedule a complimentary consultation with our practice, you actually sit down for a consultation with one of our chiropractic doctors. The consultation is a simple conversation, not an examination and certainly not a high-pressure sales pitch.

When you visit our practice, we will get to know you. You will get to know us and how we may help you achieve better health. And we will provide you with an overview of structural chiropractic and how it helps patients. Most importantly, we’ll determine if this can be the solution you’ve been searching for to achieve optimal health.

Following your consultation with us, you are more than welcome to proceed on that day or on a future date with a complete structural chiropractic examination which will include the following:

  • Structural spinal analysis
  • Spinal examination
  • Examination of any other part of the body that is necessary for your case
  • Orthopaedic, neurological, range of motion and mobility examinations
  • Specific digital structural radiographs – X-rays (if necessary) are referred out to radiology clinics with additional costs

Who Is Chiropractic For?

In addition to those adults suffering from pain and discomfort throughout the body, chiropractic is also a natural, holistic method for helping patients who are pregnant, paediatric patients, patients who experience restricted nerve flow to important organ systems that result in ulcerative colitis, GERD/heartburn, nausea, bloating and menstruation, and even animals!

Who Uses Chiropractic Care?
Everyone! Millions of people from newborns to senior citizens use chiropractic care as a way to get healthy and stay healthy. If you want to improve your health and get more out of life, chiropractic is for you!

Dr. Sam and Dr. James have been under chiropractic care since childhood, so they personally know the benefits of lifelong chiropractic care. Patients in our office have varied in ages from 41 minutes through 101 years!

Can I Feel If I Have A Structural Shift In My Spine?

Unfortunately, no. Structural shifts are misalignments in the spine that cause tension in the nervous system and dis-ease. Sometimes structural shifts can cause symptoms like pain, stiffness, weakness, muscle spasms, etc. However, most of the time structural shifts are silent and cause decreased function without causing pain.

Less than 10% of the nerves in your entire body sense pain. So even if those aren’t irritated, there’s still 90% that could be affected without you even knowing it. That’s why getting checked by a Doctor of Chiropractic is so important.

What Happens On A First Visit?

We always start with a complimentary consultation. After completing the initial paperwork and touring the office, you’ll sit down with one of our doctors for a conversation about your health goals, your concerns, and all aspects of care to make sure our practice is the right fit for you. If you choose to start care, our doctors will perform a thorough chiropractic evaluation to determine how we can best help you. We’ll review the findings with you, come up with an initial plan of correction, and get started.

Will I Get An Adjustment On My First Visit?

Usually not. Your health is our main priority. We always thoroughly evaluate the results of your first visit before initiating care. On your first visit we perform a consultation, examination, necessary x-rays, and an extensive assessment of your nervous system. We take the time necessary to properly evaluate the results and make appropriate recommendations. Your follow-up visit will include a personalized report of findings and answers to any questions you may have.

In saying that, if your baby or yourself are suffering from a condition that is causing too much discomfort and inability to live comfortably, we won’t let you or your baby suffer through more pain and may well be able to do something for you on your first visit.

I Tried Chiropractic, But It Didn’t Work For Me. Why Should I Try It Again?
Because you deserve to be healthy. Not all chiropractors are the same, and not everyone responds to the same type of chiropractic. There are over 200 named chiropractic techniques, so it’s just about finding the “right fit”.

Shtulman Family Chiropractic uses state-of-the-art equipment to assess the function of your nervous system and specific x-rays to evaluate your spinal health. Don’t let previous experiences prevent you from reaching your health goals. Come see how our office can help you!

Once You Start Going, Do You Have To Go Forever?

No, unless you want to continue improving your health.

Think about anything in your life you want to work properly…your car, your house, your teeth, your muscles. You could easily stop taking care of them, too, but you’ll probably experience a gradual decline in how they work. Your spine and nervous system are no different. Many of our practice members include chiropractic care in their lifestyle to be as healthy as possible.

How Much Does An Adjustment Cost?

We always start with a complimentary consultation, a conversation with our doctors to discuss your goals, how our practice works, and all aspects of care – including fees. Chiropractic is best utilized with regular adjustments, therefore we don’t recommend a “per visit” option. It’s similar to exercise…one work out does not get you in shape, and typically neither does one adjustment.

On your second visit to our office, our doctor will spend time with you reviewing the results from your exam and make recommendations to get the best results. That will include a care plan based on the severity of subluxations in your spine and your individual health goals.

Are You ACC Registered And Do I Need A GP Referral?

We are ACC registered and our Chiropractors can submit your ACC claim right here in our office so you don’t need a GP’s referral to get ACC.
