The body has an internal ability to heal itself and control all its functions. You digest food, heal wounds, sleep (regenerate and repair), fight infections and breathe without having to think about these essential functions. All these functions occur effectively because our body is naturally intelligent and amazing.
Chiropractic is based on the natural law of homeostasis (balance), which states that a living organism (you) has an inborn intelligence that causes it to always express it greatest potential for health and well-being. This natural law of balance is made possible by your brain and nervous system which controls every cell, tissue and organ. When your brain, nervous system and body are communicating effectively, your body and health will flourish.
Any disruption to this communication results in a breakdown to the body’s function, resulting in your body not working at ease. Which means your health balance is lost .The practice of chiropractic addresses these areas of disruption so the body can work effectively and efficiently leading to excellent health.
Chiropractic care is for everyone, regardless of age. Today, more informed people and families are having their spines and health checked by a chiropractor regularly.
Our philosophy of health is a unique, simple and completely natural way to a happier and healthier You.
When the spine becomes painful it may be the result of local tissue damage, perhaps to the lining of a spinal joint or a tear in the fabric of one of the intervertebral discs. Interestingly, such damage doesn’t usually happen as a result of significant trauma. Rather, our patients tell us that they suddenly will have experienced pain during some harmless everyday movement. For some, their problem slowly builds up until they cannot tolerate the discomfort anymore. So what will be going on here?
In many cases spinal problems develop slowly over time without any clues or signs that you might notice. This is similar to tooth decay or heart disease, they are no clues until the problem is there. The real reason that a spine might become painful has more to do with a loss of spinal control than any loss of strength. The human spine is an incredibly complex and flexible structure that requires accurate control, if you don’t want to end up injuring it. The moment-by-moment regulation of joint alignment is all done unconsciously by your brain and nervous system (just like the beating of your heart). And, in the same way that people might develop problems with their heart rate or rhythm (a control problem), you may also suffer control problems in your spine. If this happens, then you may well injure yourself with a simple movement.
Chiropractic spinal adjustment (manipulation) works directly by stimulating the control centres of your spinal cord and nervous system to help them do their job better and allow you to maintain your own alignment better. We then follow this up with tailored exercises to help you encourage the improvements that we make on your behalf.
Chiropractic is safe, effective and natural healthcare profession that is concerned with preservation and restoration of health.
Chiropractors locate and correct spinal joint misalignments or restrictions. In chiropractic, this restrictions or spinal misalignments are known as Vertebral Subluxation Complex (Subluxation).
Subluxations irritates the structures that connect to the spine (muscles, joint capsules, intervertebral discs, ligaments etc.). All this structures have receptors that supply information to the brain and nervous system. The information allows the brain and nervous system to have better control of your spine, muscle balance and chemicals/hormones produced for your health.
Correcting the subluxations will directly stimulate the control centres of your spinal cord and nervous system to help them do their job better and allow you to maintain your own health and wellbeing.
