CHIROPRACTIC

WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC

Chiropractic is the world's largest non-surgical, non-drug prescribing, primary contact health profession. It is a natural approach to health based on the relationship between your spine and your nervous system.

   Your spine is designed, among other things, to protect your central nervous system and thus allow it to function normally. It is very important that your central nervous system works properly because it controls and coordinates the function of every single cell, tissue and organ in your body.

  

So it follows that a healthy spine and nervous system is crucial in terms of maintaining optimal whole body health. For example; if your spine is twisted or compressed in any way the bones may choke, stretch or irritate the delicate nerves of the nervous system and will interfere with the correct functioning of the organs/muscles they control. Many common ailments such as headaches and poor digestion can stem from a spine which is out of alignment. Other whole body effects can include asthma, ulcers, migraines, vision and concentration problems to mention just a few.

How does it take effect?

When the bones of your spine are locked in an abnormal position and are interfering with the correct functioning of your nervous system, the condition is known as a 'vertebral subluxation'.

 

The causes of vertebral subluxations are varied. Usually, it is brought on by too much stress on the spine to which it cannot adapt. This can result from physical trauma, psychological stress or through poor general spinal care including inadequate nutrition and exercise.

 

The local effects of a vertebral subluxation can include tight or weak muscle groups, overloading and subsequent degeneration of spinal discs and the general aches and pains of the common 'crookback' syndrome.

How to treat?

The local effects of a vertebral subluxation can include tight or weak muscle groups, overloading and subsequent degeneration of spinal discs and the general aches and pains of the common 'crookback' syndrome.

 

The primary focus of chiropractic care is, therefore, the location, analysis, correction and prevention of vertebral subluxations. Chiropractors correct subluxations with gentle spinal adjustments performed by hand or by specialised instruments. These specific corrective procedures help to realign the body, thus promoting proper nervous system function and contributing to optimal whole body health.

Our Chiropractors examine the patient and reviews medical history to determine what is causing the patient's pain. Chiropractic treatment is based on the principle that restricted spinal movement leads to pain and a reduced function.
