What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a natural, drug-free, non-surgical approach to getting you back to health and specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders affecting the musculoskeletal system, particularly involving the spine and its effect on the nervous system and our health in general.
When people think of Chiropractic, many imagine that it is often limited to the treatment of back and neck disorders, but as primary healthcare providers Chiropractors are qualified to treat a vast range of conditions. Indeed, any movable joint that is restricted and is causing discomfort or pain, can likely be helped by a Chiropractor.

The most common Chiropractic technique performed is known as a “spinal manipulation,” or “chiropractic adjustment.” The purpose of the manipulation/ adjustment is to restore joint mobility. In addition, each patient will undergo some muscle release techniques during each session which ultimately quickens the healing process.

Although tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, most commonly an injury will occur through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor posture for an extended period of time. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function for the sufferer.

Therefore, in addition to potential physical stressors to the body, close attention is also placed on the lifestyle of the patient because chemical stress,(what we eat and drink), and emotional stress will both also contribute to an individual feeling pain and dysfunction.
Chiropractic manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues will help restore mobility, which in turn reduces pain and muscle tightness and therefore allows tissues to heal.

Is Chiropractic Treatment is safe?

Believe it or not, this question is frequently asked by patients who are new to Chiropractic.
When compared with traditional approaches Chiropractic care is remarkably safe. Regular Chiropractic adjustments are safer and longer lasting than anti-inflammatories, painkillers, muscle relaxants, and back surgery. There are many research studies that have documented the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic adjustments. Indeed, millions of chiropractic adjustments are safely delivered to patients all over the world every day.

Is Chiropractic Treatment right for you?

If areas of abnormal joint and muscle function are identified, your doctor will recommend a specific chiropractic care program, including regular adjustment visits, regular re-examination and progress reports. Your plan of care is based upon your age, condition, lifestyle, and unique presenting problem(s).


Things to Remember about Chiropractic:

Chiropractic is not an instant magic cure…if only it was!!
As we get older, our lifestyle choices will commonly initiate postural changes, joint misalignments and increased muscle tension leading to pain. The job of the chiropractor is to diagnosis the source of the problem and provide a plan that will relieve symptoms and prevent re-occurrence in a controlled manner. Ultimately each of us who undergoes Chiropractic treatment needs to make minor but nevertheless important lifestyle changes to proactively enhance our daily lives.
