Chiropractic in a Nutshell
Chiropractic is a specialist profession that focuses on the care of your spine and its relationship with your nervous system. Chiropractors use adjustments to reduce the stress and tension of the muscles, joints and tissues of your spine and nervous system. This improves alignment and flexibility and enables your body to function better. Chiropractors are very effective at treating injuries and also in managing the ongoing health of your spine and nervous system. Chiropractic care is an effective treatment for spine related problems such as back pain, neck pain, headaches (including migraine), sciatica and balance problems (like vertigo and dizziness) as well as a great way to maintain your health and wellbeing.
We believe that it’s much better to prevent problems than to try to cure them. When we have resolved your initial concerns we will give you specific advice to help you prevent problems in the future and to stay healthy. In general terms, exercise, nutrition and rest are important for your long term health. Your body is made to move and it is beneficial for you to do some form of exercise regularly. When you eat fresh, wholesome food with a minimum of sugar and additives your body does better. Managing your stressors and getting plenty of rest will also help. Regular “tune-up” adjustments are ideal for removing any build up of stress and tension in your spine and nervous system. Every day we experience stress, whether physical, chemical or psychological. Tension builds and dissipates constantly. Over time some of this stress and tension accumulates and shows up in the tissues of your spine and nervous system. Many of our clients get regular adjustments, often monthly, to help remove this stress and tension as a form of preventative care. Research has shown that people under regular chiropractic care experience… less pain and discomfort, better flexibility, less headaches, more energy, fewer colds/flu’s, less use of medication, better concentration, greater ability to handle stress, and greater overall contentment.
