Frequently Asked Questions

What is Advanced Biostructural Correction?

Advanced Biostructural Correction (ABC) ™ is a revolutionary technique that returns your body to its natural alignment. This is achieved by getting rid of the mechanical stress that accrues when your body compensates for injury. Visit our What is ABC™ page for more information.

Who can benefit from ABC™?

ABC™ can help people from all walks of life who are keen to improve their health. Many of our clients are busy mums who have been living with long term pain or discomfort but have struggled to prioritise their health. ABC™ treatments are quick and effective, making them easy to incorporate into a busy lifestyle.

Is ABC™ safe for kids?

ABC™ can be a safe supplement to your child’s health care regimen as long as it’s applied properly. At Complete Chiropractic we specialise in mums and kids, so you can relax knowing that your child is in safe hands.

ABC™ seems to be all about posture. Why is posture so important?

Good posture is not just about your physical appearance, although it’s true that poor posture can make you look older. Posture is one of the key indicators of your overall health; if your posture is poor, it can result in range of symptoms such as poor sleep, lack of energy, pain and tension, reduced breathing capacity, lowered immunity and an older appearance that can reduce your quality of life.

What are the causes of poor posture?

Causes of poor posture include: long term use of devices, like computers, that cause you to sit in a hunched position for long periods of time; injuries, such as sporting injuries, car accidents and falls; and hereditary disorders, such as scoliosis and osteoporosis.

In today’s world, children are developing problems with their posture at a much more rapid rate than previous generations, due largely to the prolonged periods they spent sitting in front of computers and other electronic devices.

What are the signs of poor posture?

The most common sign of poor posture is forward displacement of the head, known as Forward Head Posture (FHP). When your head is pushed forward, it pulls against your neck, back, shoulders and chest and can also push your hips out of alignment to compensate.

Are spinal adjustments painful?

ABC™ is a painless and surprisingly fast method of chiropractic treatment. The doctor will treat you using only his hands, bending your body using rotary movements. However, conventional chiropractic techniques like twisting are not used in ABC™ treatments.

Some patients will experience a slight muscle ache the day after having their spine adjusted; this is normal and will usually pass within 24 hours.

How long will it take before I see results?

Many patients start seeing results after their first treatment. Patients with more severe conditions may need a few weeks of treatment before they can really see or feel a difference.

If I feel better after a few weeks of treatment, does that mean I’m cured?

If you’ve been living with pain for a long time, then you may think your problem is fixed as soon as the pain goes away. However, what we’re aiming for is not just a treatment of the symptoms, but a treatment of the underlying causes and this can take time. The duration of your treatment plan depends on your individual symptoms, so make an appointment to talk through your needs with Dr Zahedi.
