CHIROPRACTOR CAPE TOWN: DR CRESTANI
Dr Melissa Crestani is a Chiropractor operating from The White Lotus Wellness Centre in Gardens, Cape Town.
WHAT IS A CHIROPRACTOR?
Chiropractic is a hands-on, primary health care profession. Chiropractors specialise in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders affecting the bones, joints, muscles, and nerves in the body.
Treatments combine soft tissue release techniques, such as massage and dry needling, chiropractic manipulations, and mobilisations. Self-management strategies are also an essential part of treatment because it is integral for patients to be active participants in their health care.
All treatments are carefully tailored and aimed at treating the cause of the problem and not just the symptoms.
Although Chiropractors are spinal specialists, this doesn’t mean that they can only treat lower back and neck pain. Chiropractic care can help with:
- Injured or sprained joints and ligaments
- Muscle pain and spasms
- Neck and shoulder pain
- Mid and lower back pain
- Pinched nerves
- Recreation and work-related injuries
- Sports injuries and performance
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A CHIROPRACTIC CONSULTATION?
Your initial consultation will consist of a detailed history taking, relevant orthopedic testing, and a tailored treatment plan that will include one or more of the following :
- soft tissue work (massage and or dry needling)
- use of modalities
- most importantly, gentle chiropractic manipulations and or mobilisations
- self-management strategies
Follow-up treatments are a little shorter than an initial consultation because the chiropractor knows you a lot better and can jump straight into your tailored treatment plan. Not all patients need a follow-up treatment. Others may require a little more care.
Dr Melissa Crestani is here to help relieve your aches and pains, so that you can get back to enjoying our beautiful Cape Town, pain free.
