What is Chiropractic?

To understand the difference in care offered at Watsonia Chiropractic and Massage  it is first necessary to define what would be considered Traditional Chiropractic.


Traditional Chiropractic is predominately about:

  • Increasing range of motion

  • Decreasing muscular spasm

  • Reducing pain

This is what most chiropractors offer and they often do a great job at achieving this.

Unlike traditional chiropractic, at Martin & Coupe Chiropractic we focus on structural / postural correction. Specifically, we utilise a structural corrective technique called Advanced Bio-Structural Correction™. ABC™ is a ‘manual’ or ‘hands-on’ style of chiropractic. Its protocol involves meningeal stretches and spinal, pelvis, hip, knee, feet and rib adjustments. Often an audible release is heard when stretches and adjustments are performed with most people enjoying the process. People are often surprised at the noticeable change in their body that can occur from their first ABC™ adjustment.

Our objective is to correct or improve slumped, slouched, stooped or twisted posture. Poor Posture is often a result of a series of misalignments and compensations throughout your body.

Treatment and Management

After an initial consultation which involves discussion, examination and digital postural analysis we can determine if we are a good fit for your needs.

By focussing on improving structure we are addressing the cause of symptoms created by a primary structural issue.
