What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is an allied health profession which is concerned with the finding the cause of and also helping to prevent ongoing mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system.
The effects of these disorders can impact on the function of the nervous system and therefore, general health.
Chiropractors place an emphasis on manual treatments which includes spinal adjustment and also other joint and soft-tissue manipulation.
Chiropractic adjustments usually involve a quick, gentle and precise thrust. The result of this treatment is to add motion to spinal joints that aren’t moving correctly. Some methods use the practitioner’s hands, while others use an instrument, a special table or the use of gravity. There are many ways to adjust the spine. As you may already be aware , not all involve twisting and cracking.
Why Should I Have Chiropractic Care?
Contrary to popular belief, a natural part of the aging process does NOT have to include chronic illness or daily pain and discomfort.
As a result of today’s stressful lifestyle, repetitive work environments, lack of exercise and even less sleep mean we often fall prey to chronic conditions. These can include chronic headaches and migraines, neck, upper back and also lower back pain.
