Chiropractic

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a safe, natural and effective approach to improving your health. Chiropractic achieves this by eliminating interferences to your nervous system. Many of our daily stressors, such as our work, habits, or accidents and falls, have an impact on our spine and stop our nervous system from functioning properly. These interferences are the cause of many health-related issues. Chiropractic focuses on the cause of your problems, rather than the symptoms.

Why Should Everyone Have Their Spine Checked?

Many people have spinal dysfunctions without suffering from any obvious symptoms. These dysfunctions, left undetected, may lead to serious effects on the nervous system and the body as a whole. Detection early on is important to maintain health. For many people symptoms are keeping them from work, school or from their busy lives. Early care from a chiropractor can help get you back on your feet.

Remember: you don’t need to wait until you get symptoms before getting your spine checked

The Causes Of Spinal Dysfunctions

The stresses and strains of everyday living, such as housework, gardening, deskwork, lifting or even sleeping on the couch, can cause spinal problems. So can falls, accidents, sports activities and injuries, as well as life-style stressors, such as lack of rest and exercise, or diet. With children, the spine is often affected during the birth process. The resulting spinal dysfunctions affect our health.

How Are Spinal Problems Corrected?

Chiropractors are specialists in the nervous system. They are trained to correct the dysfunction in the spine, allowing the nervous system to work at its best. Your chiropractor, in most cases, will use their hands to apply gentle corrective pressure to the spine in a specific direction and location, correcting the spinal dysfunctions. Other low-force techniques are also used in conjunction with these, depending on each individual’s needs.

Does The Adjustment Hurt?

Most commonly, chiropractic adjustments are painless. In case of recent trauma, such as whiplash, mild discomfort may be experienced due to inflammation.

The Benefits Of Chiropractic

Vital Facts About Your Health And Body

Your body is controlled by your brain and nervous system. It controls every cell, tissue, organ and function in your body. Your spinal cord is the “central motorway” of your nervous system, allowing messages to pass from your brain to every part of your body. Our ability to walk, run, jump, lift and feel almost every sensation requires a healthy spine. Spinal dysfunctions interfere with your nervous system and the messages that control the body.

Your chiropractor can locate and gently remove this interference using natural techniques, without involving drugs or surgery.
