The human body is an amazing piece of machinery – complex, efficient, energetic, intelligent – when it is working well we surpass the engineering feats of the highest tech racing car!

Just as most of us wouldn’t know how to maintain a racing car, most of us struggle with the upkeep of our own body – the human vehicle we travel in. As a result most of us find our machinery not working as well as we would like and periodically suffer with “breakdowns”.

Amazing Human Machine

What does this mean in real terms?

  • Neck, shoulder and back pains
  • Stiffness and risk of injury
  • Bad posture
  • Low energy
  • Headaches
  • Poor sleep
  • Reduced fitness
  • Eating the wrong food
  • Inability to do what we want to do
  • Infections that take weeks to get over

And when our car breaks down or if we decide we need to take better care and achieve better performance we should seek the assistance of an expert. The same is true when deciding to take better care of our own body – Chiropractors are the human body repair experts.

Dr Nick Hodgson has been studying and researching body function for the last 30 years, and practicing as a Chiropractor for 24 years, and is committed to offering the most cutting edge “body repair” methods from all over the world. “I have always kept up with the latest developments in research and design and I believe the mix of therapies that I currently use hand in hand to be the most effective yet!”

“There are so many wonder cures being pushed and promoted nowadays and I only implement ones that pass my four step research process:

  1. Does the science behind the technology or treatment make sense? This usually rules out many new ideas as they prove to be based on questionable theories.
  2. Is there sufficient real research to measure the benefits? I ignore testimonials from a few excited individuals and investigate what real measurements of benefit have been published.
  3. Is the method congruent with the goals I am aiming to achieve with my practice members? It is easy to be distracted by gimmicky treatments and techniques that are irrelevant to the majority of people’s problems.
  4. When I have completed training and implemented the method back in the “real world” of day to day practice – does it really work enough for most people? Not all goods and services deliver on their promises and claims.”

All this being said the treatments and methods that Nick has chosen to offer in his practice might not fit with people’s idea of what a Chiropractor traditionally does – It is the exception rather than the rule for people to have to endure the discomfort of having their backs “cracked” to realign their spine: Instead he prefers to utilise modern gentle methods that improve the function of the nervous system to maximise each person’s healing potential. Nick observes; “I have to say that when people first start seeing me they have to apply a degree of trust initially till they can see the superior results which are possible.”

At the core of Dr Hodgson’s treatment techniques are:

  1. Torque Release Technique Chiropractic – Chiropractic began in 1895 and there have been many technique developments since then – TRT is the 21st century culmination of all these developments incorporating the best of the best methods including the Integrator– technology that allows maximal body response to spinal adjustments with minimal force.
  2. Auriculotherapy – All the benefits of acupuncture without the need for needles, this treatment is based on a microsystem model researched and developed internationally. In simple terms the ear can be used like a switchboard to the nervous system to assess and treat imbalances in the internal body using microcurrent technology.
  3. SCENAR – Developed by Russian Scientists to enable Cosmonauts to treat their injuries this space-age “Self Controlled Energo Neuro Adaptive Regulator” interactively locates, measures and prompts problem areas in the body through the skin to help relieve pain and restore function, without the need for diagnosis.
  4. Myofascial Release – Tension and tightness in the muscle, ligament, tendon and fascial soft tissues can be the cause or effect of body dysfunction and pain: Nick has long been respected for his gift in locating and releasing the imbalance at the root of many problems with his “Magic Hands”.

In addition Dr Hodgson espouses what he calls “the 50/50 principle”: Half of the benefits you will benefit from come from the healing hands approach, the other half comes from self-help methods that work:

  1. Biofeedback – Nick incorporates a range of biofeedback techniques from advanced breathing techniques to heart rate variability, light and sound technologies, and brain balancing methods.
  2. Exercise – Having been an elite Track and Field athlete for most of his life, Nick understands both the preventative and rehabilitative benefits of well designed exercise routines.
  3. Nutritional management – From better dietary choices to advanced nutritional supplements, Nick attempts to guide his practice members towards better body chemistry by natural means.
  4. Lifestyle choices – Nick is an experienced health, wellness and fitness coach and has a knack of directing people towards better life choices.
