What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a form of health care concerned with the relationship between the spine and pelvis (structure) and the nervous system (function). You may have heard the phrase ‘structure governs function‘ meaning if the structure of the body is not optimal, functioning of the body will not be optimal.
Spinal problems may place endangering stress on your spinal cord and nerves. This leads to interruptions of nerve supply for your major organs such as your heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, digestive system and other cells in the body, including skin and blood cells.
If cells can’t be replaced in the normal way, disease, problems and pain may set in. Our goal as Chiropractors is to remove the nerve interference and allow proper nerve supply to every organ, tissue and cell in the body. By removing nerve interference, chiropractors help the body to function in a better way.
“Chiropractic is a patient-centered, hands-on approach to health that’s focused on influencing bodily function through structural correction”
Your Chiropractic Adjustments
What is a chiropractic adjustment? A chiropractic adjustment refers to the force, applied by a qualified Doctor of Chiropractic, to a vertebrae (or joint) that has abnormal movement patterns or fails to function normally.
Your adjustments aim to correct troublesome misalignments along the spine, thus helping to increase range of motion, improve structure and function, reduce nerve irritability and reduce pain.
A series of adjustments may be recommended if your case warrants chiropractic care (that is what our new patient checkup is designed to assess). Chiropractic may be used for pain relief (short term care) or may be corrective (a medium to long-term process).
Over time, and after a series of adjustments, we hope that you will start to notice positive changes to your body, your posture and how you function!
