Children do not simply have smaller versions of adult spines and additional factors need to be taken into consideration. Common conditions managed in infants include breastfeeding difficulty, colic (irritable baby) and torticollis. Limps, learning difficulties and injuries are common in children.

Balancing the pelvis and providing evidence-based information regarding birth options and choices are the primary focus of Pregnancy care, as well as addressing any discomfort. Pregnancy is about growing healthy mothers as well as babies.

Support for a new mother is essential to the health and well-being of both mother and baby. Common components of care include normal infant behaviour, spine discomfort with breastfeeding and appropriate referral to other health care practitioners.

Chiropractic care of children in Australia has an exemplary safety record. All adjustments are performed with the minimal required force, with the patient’s age, size and preferences important factors to consider.

Lymphoedema is caused by an overload of the lymphatic system resulting  in a swelling of one or more regions of the body. It is not curable but can be managed.

There are two main categories of Lymphoedema

a) Primary Lymphoedema: caused by a malformation of lymphatic vessels and/or nodes and might not appear till later on in life. 

b) Secondary Lymphoedema:  is caused by damage to the lymphatic system, mostly the axillary and inguinal lymph nodes.

Most frequently secondary lymphoedema occurs after surgery and radiation treatment for cancer. An oedema may develop directly after treatment or over time as a result of a chronic overload of the lymphatic system.

Complications of Lymphoedema can be various skin conditions of which cellulitis is the most common one.

Self Controlled Energo Neuro Adaptive Regulator (SCENAR) Therapy

SCENAR is highly effective for acute and chronic pain relief.  It has been approved by the TGA in Australia for pain and inflammation.  It is highly scientific and complex, based on physics and physiology.

If you have acute or chronic pain why not try SCENAR?  Being in pain is not beneficial to long term health, in fact being in pain, or being on pain medication long term, is often associated with other health concerns.

  • SCENAR is drug free and non invasive
  • It gives fast and effective pain relief

What is it?

SCENAR is a brilliant, highly sophisticated Russian medical device, widely used by their own medical professionals (including doctors and hospitals) in relieving pain and inflammation.  It has been an effective tool for pain relief since it was first introduced in the 1980's and today is used by many health professionals all over the worlld.  It is Electro medicine at its best, manufactured in Russia by engineers and medical professionals.

SCENAR is unlike other electro devices.  It is adaptive and this is what makes a world of difference when using electrotherapy.  We are used to electro devices which use a permanent electrical signal, meaning that the signal does not change with the reaction of the body.  The body is told to use this permanent signal and since the body has an amazing ability to compensate, the adaptive system of the body will exactly do that... adapt to the permanent signal.  Which when it comes to chronic pain means that the pain will come back again.

SCENAR is ADAPTIVE, meaning that it will change its signal according to changes in the body's electrical system (Nervous System).  It measures these through the skin receptors.

In this way a SCENAR device will reduce pain and inflammation by initiating the body's own healing abilities to restore balance within the body.

A professional Scenar Therapist will work with a professional device which will show the body's reaction to the SCENAR signal numbers.

Professional SCENAR Therapy is very specific, after all numbers don't lie.  It will show the area of most resistance (electrically speaking), and where there is pain in the body there is resistance in the tissue due to the inflammatory response and fluid accumulation.  By reducing the resistance in certain areas (as shown by the professional device), the body gets a little help to initate the healing process.

There are also home user devices available which are of course much easier to use but which are still highly effective in relieving pain and inflammation.
