Joint Manipulation

Elite Health and Performance staff are well trained in safe and effective use of joint manipulation. Joint manipulation used when indicated works by restoring motion to a specific segment thereby normalising sensitive nerves, inhibiting pain and decreasing associated muscle spasm. Joint manipulation aids in restoring movement to allow for nutrition and blood supply to discs and ligaments deep in the vertebral column. Manipulation when used in conjunction with other modalities ensures a well balanced treatment approach.

Prior to manipulation patients are always tested to ensure safety and patient comfort.
X-rays are very rarely required for this and long term manipulation plans are never a focus of Elite practitioners.
