Chiropractic is a natural, non-invasive therapy that seeks to restore the body’s natural balance. Its main focus is the relationship between your nervous system and spine, and the body’s organs, tissues, bones, muscles and joints.
Assessment and treatment will identify and locate: areas of your spine that are out of alignment; places where the movement of joints is restricted; and places where the spinal nerve is being irritated. Through a series of specialised techniques, known as adjustments, these will be corrected so that you regain freedom of movement and the confidence that comes with being able to move naturally and without discomfort.
What Is Chiropractic Adjustment?
There are many ways to adjust the spine. A chiropractic adjustment is when a gentle, painless directed force is applied to a joint that is suffering from restricted movement. This helps the joint gradually to regain normal motion, bringing with it improved nervous system function.
What Does Chiropractic Treat?
Most people think that chiropractic is only good for sciatica, neck pain, whiplash and lower back pain. However, many other bodily disfunctions can be addressed. Nutritional habits, lifestyle – including sleep habits, posture and psychological distress can all disturb our delicate balance of wellness.
