What is Chiropractic care?
Chiropractic is a natural and gentle way to help your body to function at its optimum.
Every part of your body requires information from the brain in order to work. This information travels from the brain, down the spinal cord and out through the nerves. The spinal bones are there to protect this delicate system. Chiropractors assess the body to detect any abnormal motion or position of the spinal bones, pelvis and skull that may be effecting this communication between your brain and your body.
So its easy, chiropractic is about helping your spine and nerve system work well so that your body functions the way its meant to
What is an adjustment and why is it good for me?
A Chiropractic adjustment is the skilled use of delivering a specific force in a precise direction, to a joint that is stuck, or not moving correctly. This adds motion to the joint, helping to gradually restore normal function. The purpose of this very safe and natural procedure is to permit improved spinal function, improved nervous system function, and consequently, improved health.
There are many ways to adjust the spine. Chiropractors may use their hands; or have the aid of special adjusting tables; or have you lie on pelvic blocks; or use specialised low force instruments. Which technique is chosen is dependent on your individual circumstances - an elderly women, an elite footballer and a baby will obviously require very different approaches.
After a minimum of five years of university training and clinical experience, each chiropractor becomes highly skilled in the delivery of a variety of adjusting approaches.
