What is Chiropractic?
As Chiropractors we assess how well your spine and nervous system are functioning. Chiropractic is known to help a variety of complaints, primarily related to musculoskeletal system i.e. your spine, muscles, joints and nerves.
Your spine is made up of 24 vertebrae and it is our job as a Chiropractor to ensure they are aligned properly and moving freely to allow for optimal function of the nervous system and a sound structure to support you in your day to day life.
Any stress, be it chemical, emotional or physical, may create a change in function resulting in altered or abnormal spinal motion. Think of the Fight or Flight response. It is for this reason we often provide information and recommendations to improve lifestyle habits.
We refer to this altered/abnormal spinal motion as a subluxation. Simply put, subluxations stop the body from functioning optimally and it is through a series of specific Chiropractic Adjustments laid out in a program tailored to your individual needs and goals, along with relevant lifestyle recommendations that we as Chiropractors can help you regain optimal function of your spine and nervous system.
So whether your aim is to just walk or play with your kids without pain or if you are training for a big event we enjoy nothing more than helping you get there.
