Dr Dani Nelson – Chiropractor

Dr Danie Nelson St Francis Bay

Dr Danie Nelson St Francis BayAfter completing my Masters in Chiropractic at the Durban University of Technology in 2011 I went on to pursue my studies in pediatrics further. I have a passion for pediatrics, pregnancy, and family wellness and I thrive on helping families be the best that they can be. I use a technique called Neuroimpulse Protocol, otherwise known as NIP, which is very gentle and effective for the whole family, from the tiniest baby to the eldest member. I was fortunate enough to spend some time in Australia studying under the guidance of the Australian doctor who has developed the technique of NIP.

With helping to maximise brain and nerve development I truly believe in the incredible potential that chiropractic has to change lives and I look forward to helping many more families. Having been in private practice for 6 years, I was most recently part ofa multidisciplinary team at Essential Health Wellness Centre in Durban, a holistic, nurturing, and naturally minded environment. Here I was fortunate enough to work alongside an Osteopath, Kinesiologist, Naturopath, Reflexologist and BEST practitioner from whom I gained a wealth of knowledge on all areas of the human body including our emotional, physical, and spiritual wellbeing, and caring for each of them.

I believe in the power of chiropractic and the importance of viewing the body as a whole, addressing all areas. I am very excited for my new practice in St Francis Bay and I look forward to offering outstanding chiropractic care to the greater St Francis community.

I truly believe in the incredible potential that Chiropractic has to change lives, and I look forward to helping you.

Neuro Impulse Protocol

Chiropractors use a variety of different techniques to treat patients. Our Chiropractor at St Frncis Chiropractic, Dr Dani Nelson, uses a form of full body assessment referred to as Neuro Impulse Protocol (NIP).

Dr Danie Nelson St Francis BayNIP is a system of full body analysis and treatment to determine the function of the nervous system and correct that function without force. In order to interpret the function of the nervous system a strict protocol and order of examination must be followed. Remember that the nervous system is constantly receiving messages from the body and from that information it then controls the response it sends out into the body. Think of your brain as being like a computer – if you change the input to the computer that will change the output. It is the same for your body; if you change the input to your brain through messages of pain or loss of movement from part of the body, this will change the way your brain controls the body. Perhaps you may start to limp, have a change in posture, or have a headache; this makes you susceptible to more aches and pains. The aim of NIP is to normalize the input to your brain and therefore the output.

NIP is based on gentle touch and very light thrusting. This very specific, low force adjusting method allows your nervous system to better interpret and integrate the sensory input from the thrust and to appropriately process it throughout the brain and spinal cord. There is no clicking involved in an NIP adjustment.

NIP is referred to as a ‘tonal technique’ because its intent is to normalise the natural tone held in the nervous system.Imagine that your nervous system has a volume control — if you turn the volume up too much it causes distortion — this distorted function in the nervous system can and does manifest as musculoskeletal stress and pain, internal organ dysfunction and diminished immune response. Similar inappropriate responses are also seen when the volume is set too low. When the volume is set wrongly the nervous system sends distorted messages to the body, adversely affecting tone. The result is sluggish body function with a slowing of normal responses.

The primary intent of NIP is to progressively reduce abnormal tension throughout the entire system, to release patterns of dysfunction. NIP corrects these problems of increased or decreased tone by normalizing the function of the nerve, cord, and brain.

NIP avoids any force on the spinal joints making it 100% safe for people of all ages and suffering from all conditions. There is no clicking involved in an NIP adjustment and the force used is about as much as you could handle on your eyeball.

Chiropractic Care for Infants

Dr Danie Nelson St Francis BayMany people wonder why they would need to take their child to a chiropractor, let alone a newborn baby. It is agood question, but it must be said that your baby is not brand new when it is born, in fact it has already been developing in the mother’s womb for around nine months when born. Towards the end of babies nine months in utero it may well be cramped up inside moms womb, depending on how much room and how much amniotic fluid there is, as well as how big baby is. Mum may even remember feeling her baby sitting on her hip, pressing under her ribs or being in an awkward position whilst in utero. These internal environmental factors can all have an effect on your baby’s spine and nervous system.

Then it all happens, the birthing process. This is a very important process in the development of the health of each baby; however it can be a very traumatic event and as such can affect your baby’s spine. Whether a baby is born via a caesarean section or the natural birthing process, both types of births have their own effects on a newborn baby. It is recommended to have your newborn checked soon after birth.

As your baby grows into an exploring infant and then toddler, there will be many falls, bumps and knocks that can also compromise their function. As such, many parents choose to have their children checked periodically to give their kids the best chance at optimal growth and development
