What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that focuses on the function of the spine and the nervous system.
Chiropractic is about life and function. It makes sense that if our body is functioning well, we will be healthier and living as close to our full potential as possible.
The nervous system (brain, spinal cord and nerves) controls and coordinates all the functions of the body. (Yep, even the yucky stuff!) The spine also protects the spinal cord whilst being flexible enough to allow us to move freely.
Any type of stress on the body, whether it is physical, chemical or emotional, can cause the vertebrae (spinal bones) to lock up and lose their free movement. When this happens pressure may be placed on the delicate nerves, leading to a decrease in the communication between the brain and all the different parts of the body. This means that your body will not function at it's best and is therefore unable to be as healthy as it could be.
Chiropractors call this problem a Subluxation.
Subluxations affect the function of the body and may be related to poor posture, back pain, neck pain, headaches, migraines, sinusitis, lowered energy levels, allergies and digestive problems to name just a few.
Subluxations may not always cause specific symptoms, instead they may leave a person just feeling generally unwell.
Our Chiropractors correct these spinal problems, with varying techniques and can help anyone from newborn babies to the elderly improve the performance of their body naturally.
It's not just for sore backs and necks. Many families choose Chiropractic care as their primary route towards maintaing better health and wellness, naturally..
