Chiropractic Care

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a drug-free, non-surgical approach to healing and wellness 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 general health.

The perception of Chiropractic is often limited to the treatment of back and neck pain, but as primary healthcare providers Chiropractors are consulted about a whole range of conditions. The most common therapeutic procedure performed by Doctors of Chiropractic is known as “spinal manipulation,” also called “chiropractic adjustment.” The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile – or restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury.

Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal 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. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal.

Chiropractic care is safe

When compared with traditional approaches Chiropractic care is remarkably safe. Chiropractic adjustments are safer than anti-inflammatories, painkillers, muscle relaxants, and back surgery.

There are many research studies that have documented the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic adjustments. Millions of chiropractic adjustments are safely delivered to satisfied patients every day.

Can Chiropractic Help?

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