What We Do
What we do seems to have more to do with WHY we do it than anything else.
Our patients tell us they feel better, feel more alert, have more energy, think clearer, are happier and are more vital in their approach to their health and to their lives in general.
Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that focuses on the function of the spine and the nervous system.
Chiropractic is about life and function. It makes sense that if our body is functioning well, we will be healthier and living as close to our full potential as possible.
The nervous system (brain, spinal cord and nerves) controls and coordinates all the functions of the body. (Yep, even the yucky stuff!) The spine also protects the spinal cord whilst being flexible enough to allow us to move freely.
Any type of stress on the body, whether it is physical, chemical or emotional, can cause the vertebrae (spinal bones) to lock up and lose their free movement. When this happens pressure may be placed on the delicate nerves, leading to a decrease in the communication between the brain and all the different parts of the body. This means that your body will not function at it’s best and is therefore unable to be as healthy as it could be.
Chiropractors call this problem a Subluxation.
Subluxations affect the function of the body and may be related to poor posture, back pain, neck pain, headaches, migraines, sinusitis, lowered energy levels, allergies and digestive problems to name just a few.
Subluxations may not always cause specific symptoms, instead they may leave a person just feeling generally unwell.
Our Chiropractors correct these spinal problems, with varying techniques and can help anyone from newborn babies to the elderly improve the performance of their body naturally.
It’s not just for sore backs and necks. Many families choose Chiropractic care as their primary route towards maintaing better health and wellness, naturally.
We will ask you to fill out forms outlining your current and past health. We will explain Chiropractic care and your Chiropractor will chat about any health concerns you may have and how Chiropractic may benefit you.
A Chiropractic examination and assessment will determine your clinical results, and based on what is found, you may be recommended an X-Ray examination also.
Once the full extent of your problem has been assessed, a schedule of care will be recommended for you to gain the best possible results from your Chiropractic care. Most often, you will receive your first adjustment on your second visit.
