What is chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a treatment form to help resolve the natural balance and function of the body.

What is Chiropractic The body would always like to function at it's best, sometimes it is prevented from this due to a direct injury, stress, overuse/overload or through illnesses.

In these situations the body tries to restore itself and it's functions and quite often it will manage this without any help.(Think about how many times you've had a cold or a cut finger and you haven't had to see somebody about it.) However, if the problem is more severe it will need help to fix itself properly.

It's the spinal column that carries us all day long, even when were sitting down it still supports the body, head and arms so it is under constant stress. Because the nervous system (spinal cord, central nervous system) is inside the spinal column, when something goes wrong here, it can easily affect the nervous system. Since the nervous system sends messages to the rest of the body and controls the body it can produce a variety of symptoms and pains: -

  • Headache
  • Migraine
  • Dizziness / Vertigo
  • Neck Pain / Cervicalgia
  • Pain, Numbness, Tingling in arms hands or legs
  • Back Pain / Thoracalgia or Stiffness and Muscular pains between shoulder blades and the shoulder region
  • Lower back pain / Lumbago / Lumbalgia with or without pain in the legs, groin or sciatica
  • Joint problems / Joint pains
  • Herniated discs "slipped disc"
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Pinched / Trapped nerve
  • Both Acute and chronic problems
  • Stenosis

Hence it is understandable that if we can realign the misaligned vertebrae, if we can open up a nerve where it is tight because of a herniated disc, then we can recover the function loss and wellness.

This is the aim of chiropractic treatment, we treat the body with respect, trying to accomplish what the body wants which is to be well.

There are many different techniques used with some working better for certain problems than others and it's up to the chiropractor to find which is the best treatment for you. Usually most techniques and treatments aren't painful.
