What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a natural approach to health; entirely surgery and drug-free.

Chiropractic care is about much more than alleviating back or neck pain. As chiropractors we ensure that your spine and nervous system are operating properly and communicating effectively with one another, removing of any interference of the body’s natural ability to heal.

Your spine, which consists of 24 vertebrae, serves both to support your musculoskeletal system and to protect your nervous system (the spinal cord, including the spinal nerves).
In fact, your nervous system controls every aspect of your body.
Your brain sends information down your spinal cord and out your spinal nerves to every organ, system and appendage to your body.

If you’d like more information, you can take a look at our spinal chart graphic, or have a read at some of our common chiropractic techniques.

Why do I need Chiropractic treatment?

It’s probably no surprise that we often do things that can put strain on our nervous system. These include playing contact sports, dealing with emotional stress, or even a lifestyle habit such as sitting in front of a computer all day for work. Most of the time our body learns to adapt and compensate. Often we won’t realise the pressure our body is under until we actually recognise symptoms. without us realising how much pressure our body is under until we actually recognise symptoms. This is when most people seek help from their doctor, physiotherapist or chiropractor, but the catch is – these symptoms are mostly preventable!

We believe in getting to the cause of the problem before it becomes a problem! By regularly visiting us, we’ll be able to correct any stress on your nervous system before it reaches that critical turning point and actually starts causing you pain. Regular visits and adjustments will keep your spine in proper alignment and keep your nervous system functioning optimally, allowing you to enjoy full range of motion and keeping you as healthy and pain free as possible.

For great health, our bodies require a nervous system that’s functioning at its best. The nervous system acts as a communication device between parts of the body, but physical or psychological stresses caused by general day-to-day activity make it prone to dysfunction. When that occurs, and communication between areas of the body is prevented, we experience discomfort, pain, and other distressing health issues.
