The rooms are down the driveway opposite Our Vet at Halswell on 3 Kennedy’s Bush Rd. There is plenty of parking on the street in front of the building which houses Mike Pero and other businesses. A generous waiting area has standing room or low and high seating, depending on where clients find it most comfortable. The treatment room is spacious and allows those who are seeking chiropractic care ample room to talk to Andre about what they are experiencing as well as a separate area for him to treat you. For those who may not be aware chiropractic treatment isn’t just about specialised spinal adjustment. The effective use of low level laser treatment for assisting in the healing of deep tissue and joint problems has been used for more than 40 years. This treatment, which uses photo stimulation of mitochondria in cells, is able to penetrate into the site of injury to promote healing and reduce inflammation – relaxing muscles and reducing pain. Andre has seen how the non-invasive treatment has resulted in impressive results for his clients. The treatment, which only takes 15 to 20 minutes, is especially effective with muscle and joint pain, stiffness associated with arthritis, neck and lower back pain. It is approved by the FDA and Meta analysis by the Lancet Medical Journal also endorses the treatment saying it can reduce pain intensity, disability and the reoccurrence of pain. Andre can also provide other treatments including adjustments, exercises, stretches and muscle therapy – to readjust the body or help it heal from conditions that are physical in origin. These can include problems such as back pain, muscle spasms, headaches and poor posture.
