Dr. Lindsay works by the principle of treating systems, not simply masking the symptoms. With her focus on neurology and stimulating specific areas of the brain, she allows the body to alleviate dysfunction which helps her clients achieve optimal health
The primary treatment method used at Mangawhai Chiropractic is Spinal Adjusting to remove subluxation. Spinal adjustments stimulate the brain’s ability to perceive what is happening in your body. Adjustments can vary in force, we are trained in many techniques, which gives us the ability to cater the treatment to your body. What is a subluxation, and why do we need to remove it? Simply put, a subluxation is a minor misalignment or fixation which causes nerve interference. It can occur in any joint, however it primarily occurs in the spine. By delivering a very specific adjustment, the Doctors at Mangawhai Chiropractic restore the brain’s ability to communicate with body. This allows your body to function as it was designed: to be self healing and self regulating.
Pregnancy and Infant Care
The process of birth, even natural childbirth, can be a traumatic experience for both mum and baby. The transition from the womb to the world can be a rough journey for your baby. This physical strain could mean minor misalignments of the spine, which stress the developing nervous system. Newborns who are checked immediately following birth sleep and latch better, are less likely to be colicky, and are overall happier babies!

What does a Chiropractor know about treating neurological disorders? A Doctor of Chiropractic’s main focus is the health of the nervous system. We spend years learning the anatomy, physiology, function and dysfunction of the Central Nervous System. In our office we have seen resolution of:
Injuries – yes we are ACC accredited
Your body’s ability to heal is directly affected by the function (or dys-function) of your spine. At Mangawhai Chiropractic we are ACC accredited to treat many different types of injuries. There are more 30 million nerve fibers running down the spine through your neck, and any injury to the neck will create a disruption to those nerves. By restoring the proper motion and alignment to your spine, your body will heal more efficiently. In fact, with any injury, your body’s ability to heal is disrupted if your spine is not functioning properly.
You can see us first, you do not need a referral to see us as an ACC client.
Balance, Strength & Energy
Your balance, strength and energy are controlled and regulated by your brain via nervous system. If your nervous system is functioning at higher level, you will have better balance, increased strength and more energy. We take a whole body approach at Mangawhai Chiropractic. Many elite athletes have a Chiropractor and use the Chiropractic Adjustment as a regular part of their training routine. Why? Because they know the body functions at a higher level when regularly checked and cleared of spinal subluxation.
