Chiropractic
Chiropractic focuses on diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, with special emphasis on the spine and pelvis, under the hypothesis that these disorders affect general health via the nervous system.

Chiropractic is a complementary and alternative medicine which is based upon the understanding that good health depends, in part, upon a normally functioning nervous system (especially the spine, and the nerves extending from the spine to all parts of the body). Chiropractic stresses the idea that the cause of many disease processes begins with the body's inability to adapt to its environment.
At the Salus Chiropractic Clinic we believe a hands on approach. As everyone is unique, their pain is unique and so their treatment should be tailored to suit. Chiropractic adjustments are tailored to your body type and level of comfort. We use a wide variety of techniques to get the job done.
Our resident Chiropractor, Dr Jimme Vo, has over 10 years experience, in treating and managing patients with a wide variety of conditions.
Dr Vo's hours can be found here.
Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the main medical framework in Eastern Medicine, where Acupuncture is most commonly known. The treatments focuses on the alignments of elements in TCM, such as Qi and Blood flow, organ dysfunction, meridians and other TCM conditions. Acupuncture has shown to have amazing results in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions (types of arthritis, tendoniitis, muscle spasms/tightness), stress and anxiety disorders and pain management, therefore acupuncture can help treat or manage in both western and Chinese medicine. 

At Salus Chiroprctic Clinic, we offer both traditional Chinese Medicine and western medicine types of acupuncture, either as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with other modalities i.e Chiropractic.  We also offer an alternative to traditional stainless steel needles, such as laser acupuncture, a non-invasive stimulation of acupuncture points with 3B Laser Needles.

Remedial Massage Therapy
Massage is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body = the muscles, tendons and ligaments. It works through the various body systems in one of two ways, a mechanical action and a reflex action.
A mechanical action is created by moving the muscles and soft tissues of the body using pressure and stretching movement, thereby cleansing them of acids and deposits. This mechanical action breaks up fibrous tissue and loosens stiff joints.
A reflex is created when treatment of one part of the body affects another part of the body, much like pressing a light switch to turn on a light in the centre of the room. Just like this electric connection, so too are different parts of the body connected to each other, not just by flesh and bone, but by nerve pathways, or flows of energy known as 'meridians'. By using reflex action, some therapists will treat a patient's stomach complaint by massaging the arms, and will alleviate pain in the legs by massaging the lower back.
At Salus Chiropractic Clinic, we have excellent message therapists. For their hours, click here.
