What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a regulated primary natural health care which focuses upon the neuromusculoskeletal (nervous system, muscle, spine and joints)
system. Chiropractors are trained for 5 years at minimum to diagnose, treat, manage and prevent disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system. A Chiropractor is a highly qualified professional who is regulated by the General Chiropractic Council. The title of ‘Chiropractor’ is protected by law.
How does Chiropractic work?
Chiropractic corrects spinal misalignment, in chiropractic term “Subluxation“.
Subluxation mean the spinal vertebrae is at a improper motion or position affecting nerve communications between the brain and the rest of your body especially muscles and organs.
Spinal subluxation is a result from accumulative physical stress, chemical stress and mental and emotional stress. Subluxation will cause spinal spasm and nerve irritation, when it is severe it will affect the brain and organ communication which could cause disease.
Chiropractic adjustments correct subluxation which allow your nervous system to function and communication better between your brain and your body. Removing the subluxation allows your muscles to work in better balance.
Chiropractic uses spinal adjustment, soft tissue and joint manipulation to reduce pain and symptoms, improve function and increase mobility. Chiropractic also offers a package of care including advice on self-help, therapeutic exercises, nutrition and lifestyle changes to help your body to heal itself naturally.
