Techniques and Services

Thornton Chiropractic’s focus is on helping you in the manner best suited to your needs. Chiropractic care is our main area of expertise, but we offer complementary services that can serve as an important part of your healing.

Chiropractic Care

Dr Heidi Upneck-Nel (Chiropractor) is skilled in giving specific chiropractic adjustments, determining which method suits your needs with gentle palpation. She looks for a solution to the cause of your pain, not just treating the symptoms.

The techniques we use to adjust include:

  • CAT – Chiropractic Adjusting Tool
  • Blocking techniques
  • Diversified

Dry Needling

If chiropractic adjustments aren’t giving you as quick of results as we wish to see, dry needling may be used to support the adjustment and give you better outcomes. We find it highly effective for several different conditions:

  • Tennis elbow
  • Tension headaches
  • Recurrent muscle pain
  • Sports injury
  • Overuse injury

Nutrition and Supplementation

Our holistic approach includes considering different lifestyle factors to improve your overall heath. Stress levels, work, dietary needs and emotional support are all pieces of the puzzle. If you’re struggling with a certain problem that may benefit from taking a nutritional supplement, Heidi may be able to give you that advice.

If we’re helping a child with developmental delay or ADHD, we have a variety of pathology test options that can tell us specifically where they’re nutritionally deficient. There is no extra charge to discuss nutrition with Heidi.

Relaxation Massage

  • Relaxation massage is ideal for people needing to unwind and De-Stress, our therapist can help do just that!
  • 1 hour full body massage at $60 – not claimable on private health funds.
