Dr Danie Nelson St Francis Bay

Who am I?

After 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.

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a distinct science, art and philosophy that promotes natural function and potential. Chiropractors trust in the innate intelligence of the body, a vitalistic approach that is now being readily supported by ideas derived within quantum physics and mechanics.

By improving the level of function of your spine and nervous system, doctors of chiropractic help to optimize your wellbeing and can guide you and your family towards healthy, proactive life choices.

Chiropractors use a variety of different techniques to treat patients. The Chiropractors at Simply Balanced Beginnings use a form of full body assessment referred to as the 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 normalize 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 adjustments are very safe. 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.
