At our Functional Health Centres, we offer a variety of therapy options. Chiropractors are primary health care practitioners, which means they can diagnose and treat a condition they are trained to, or recognise and refer any condition they cannot treat.
Primarily we are a chiropractic centre focussed on alleviating pain in the muscle, bone, joint, tendon, ligament, and other soft tissue. We use a variety of techniques to achieve a full understanding (diagnosis) of the irritation causing the symptoms we call pain or dysfunction. Once the correct diagnosis has been made, there is also a range of chiropractic treatments that can be undertaken. The chiropractic spinal and peripheral joint manipulation is the most important correction as it has a huge impact on the central nervous system and everything it controls. Researchers like Dr. Heidi Haavik and Dr. Stuart McGill have shown the positive effects the adjustment has on the human body.
Acupuncture, massage, chiropractic-centred exercise for rehabilitation, and other post-treatment therapies are offered if they are necessary.
Ashbourne Chiropractic also offers Integrative, Lifestyle or Functional Medicine services. Dr. Stavros Mihaletos D.C. is in the process of doing a Functional Medicine post-graduate course which integrates all the latest research in the understanding of the human body and concentrates on finding the primary or source cause of an illness. Mostly this can be found in the lifestyle tendencies we practise incorrectly on a daily basis like sleep, stress release, movement, nutrition and relationships. Very simply, if we choose to be and stay healthy in this crazy modern day rush, we must follow what the science tells us. Medicine may be necessary to help to treat the symptoms of the disorder.
