What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care is about much more than pain relief, which may surprise you to know, can be straightforward to achieve
Based on the knowledge that your body is self-healing and self-regulating. This means that any stress on your nerve system may create varied health challenges through-out your body.
Any altered spinal motion that interferes with the flow of energy and information from your brain to your body and your body to your brain is known as subluxation.
Improving the function of your nerve system to encourage the free flow of information. As your spine houses your nerve system our focus and adjustments are usually to the spine and pelvis.
During your first visit, we will take a detailed health history so we can gain a full insight into your lifestyle and any health challenges you may have.
We may also need to take some X-rays using our digital technology and conduct a physical assessment with your permission.
A second visit within 48 hours to discuss our findings, along with your health concerns and suggest a care plan.
How does Chiropractic Care work?
Addressing the Physical, Chemical and Emotional.
As Chiropractors, we look at the spine and pelvis as this is what houses your nerve system. Any stress to your nerve system can create a change in your function resulting in altered spinal motion. Chiropractors call this altered spinal motion, subluxation.
Simply put, subluxation stops your body performing at its best and it’s through effective adjustments and positive lifestyle changes that we as Chiropractors can help you redress that that balance.
There are three main causes of subluxation which include physical, chemical and emotional. The physical stress refers to injuries, accidents slips or falls along with any lengthy abnormal postures such as hunching over a desk. Chemical stress means the lifestyle we lead.
If you’re someone who eats a lot of processed foods, smokes, drinks or lives in a polluted environment the toxins in your body will have an impact on your health and stop you functioning at your best. Finally, emotional stress such as upsets, career changes, personal traumas and work pressures can contribute to a subluxation.
Optimal Health and Healing
When you think of Chiropractic, you would be forgiven for thinking it’s a healthcare system solely about bad backs.
Chiropractic is a health care system centred around the body’s own natural ability to function and heal itself. Chiropractic care is based on knowledge that any stress (physical, chemical or emotional) to your brain and nerve system may result in poor health.
Doctors of Chiropractic focus on addressing three stressors (physical, chemical and emotional) and use adjustments to encourage optimal nerve system function. They use small, specific adjustments to your spine, as well as lifestyle advice to help you achieve the best overall health!
