Chiropractic is a health care discipline based on the scientific premise that the body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. These important functions are controlled by the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body. Chiropractic works on the disorders of the body’s muscles, bones, joints and nervous system, focusing on the effects of these disorders on general health. While Chiropractors care for patients of all ages with a variety of health conditions, they are especially well known for their expertise in the use of spinal adjustments (manipulations) to alleviate back, neck pain, headaches, spinal disc problems, sporting injuries, hip pain, and more. This adjustment is done by applying a controlled force into the affected joints and tissues in order to restore mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness to allow tissues to heal naturally.
Chiropractic also empowers patients to reach improved levels of functional health and wellness through exercise recommendations, diet, and tips on injury prevention. Whether you are a busy mum, construction worker, sitting all day at work, an athlete, or someone who just values a natural, whole body approach to pain relief and better health, Chiropractic can help you feel better and function at your best.
