WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC?
Chiropractic is a primary health care profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and management of problems relating to muscles, bones and ligaments of the body. Chiropractors practice a drug free, hands off approach to health care.
‘The doctors of the future will give no medicine but interest his patients in the human frame, in diet and the cause and prevention of disease’- by Thomas Edison.
Chiropractic helps your body heal itself naturally and in a time where medication is being given out so freely, causing untold side effects, more and more people are looking for a natural alternative method to alleviate pain. A healthy spine and nervous system is imperative to good health and that is the focus of chiropractic care.
WHAT IS A CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT?
An adjustment is a quick impulse directed to a restricted or subluxated joint. It is used to realign vertebrae and in turn relieves pressure on spinal nerves. It is a safe, painless, effective procedure performed by a doctor of chiropractic. An adjustment may sometimes be accompanied with an audible ‘pop’.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC?
Everybody! As all nerves exit the spine and supply every organ and muscle in the body, it is vital the vertebrae (bones of the spine) are not misaligned and compressing these nerve roots. Chiropractors adjust the vertebrae into correct alignment, taking pressure off nerves and allowing the body to function to its optimal potential.
