Acute Problems in Te Puke

Chiropractic Te Puke Bay of Plenty Acute Problems

If you are suffering symptoms or direct pain due to a recent injury, incident or event we would describe this as 'acute'. If you are living with acute pain, chiropractic care in Te Puke might be a good treatment option.


Our first concern is to make an accurate diagnosis of how the tissue of your spine and nervous system has been damaged and how it is affecting and interfering with the health of your body. The goal of acute chiropractic care is to relieve your pain, reduce any inflammation that is contributing to your pain and restore normal range of motion to the affected joint. Inflammation is your bodies way of attempting to stabilize an injured area.

It is a two edged sword, in that it compresses an injured body part, prevents movement and increases the level of pain which reminds you not to do anything that may cause further damage. That being said, it also impedes with the healing process and makes your life miserable in the meantime. We will utilize chiropractic adjustments, core and range of motion exercises, traction, and other modalities that we determine will be beneficial to your healing.


​Problems are described as chronic when they have been present for longer than six months without resolution. As with acute care we want an accurate diagnosis of your condition, how it came about and how your body and lifestyle has adapted to this ongoing injury. This knowledge will help us shape the care you receive.

Chronic problems of the spine always involve formation of scar tissue with wear and tear of the joints and discs. So while our immediate focus is to relieve you of your symptoms, the goal of utmost importance is stopping this process from going any further then we can set you on a path to restore normal function to your day to day life and long term health.
