Correct. Stabilise. Maintain.
Chiropractic works on the biological premise that the body is designed to be able to heal itself, as long as the brain and the body are able to communicate properly. This is done via a healthy nervous system (brain, spinal cord and spinal nerves, which make up the body’s internal communication). The spine’s job is to house and protect this system.
When the body is under stress (physical, chemical or emotional) it can cause muscles to tighten and joints in the spine to become stuck or misaligned. These misalignments can create interference to the function of the nervous system, creating issues such as back pain, neck pain and/or headaches just to name a few, and limiting the body’s ability to self heal and self regulate.
The great news is that as chiropractors, we are highly trained to locate and then safely and gently correct these misalignments, allowing proper function of the spine and nervous system to be restored and thus allowing the body to heal properly. It’s that simple.
We utilise a number of chiropractic techniques including traditional ‘hands-on’ type care, as well as activator (instrument-assisted) care. It comes down to patient preference and what works the best for each individual. We promise to listen to what has worked/not worked for you in the past, to figure out what will be the best approach moving forward in the future.
