Dr. van Heerden is a diversified chiropractor. This means that she uses high velocity/low amplitude adjustments traditionally associated with chiropractic adjustments.

These adjustments are safe and effective (when performed by a qualified specialist). They will often lead to a popping/cracking sound in the spine. During the adjustment you may feel some discomfort, which is usually followed by a feeling of relief.

Along with joint adjustments, the following techniques are also used in this practice:

Joint mobilisations

Dry Needling

Auxillary Therapeutics (heat/cold therapy; sports massage; ischaemic compression; passive & active release techniques)
