What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic is a health care discipline based on the scientific premise that the body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. These important functions are controlled by the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body.

“Chiropractic” comes from the Greek word Chiropraktikos, meaning “practice or treatment by hand.”

The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine, and pelvis) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.
Chiropractors use a range of hands-on techniques, which are safe and often gentle, which aim to help free the joints in the spine that are not moving properly. Your chiropractor may incorporate massage and give exercise as part of your care as well as giving help with lifestyle and posture. Chiropractors are also able to arrange for scans and x-rays which help to reveal structure and alignment of the spine, and also to look out for other problems associated with the spine.

Chiropractic offers 3 stages of care, first of all helping with pain relief, followed by fixing underlying problems associated with the musculoskeletal system and finally keeping you well to try to prevent any recurrences as best we can.
