WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC?
Many people initially see a chiropractor to help with common, spinal-related problems such as lower back pain, neck pain, sciatica, disc protrusions, and headaches. Chiropractic offers amazing results for these types of problems. Why? Vertebrae in the spine often get jammed up or restricted in positions that cause inflammation, muscle tightness, and/or nerve irritation. Chiropractors free up these restricted vertebrae using gentle mobilising techniques.
However, take into account that the nerves in the spine don’t just carry pain messages, they carry every single message between your brain and your body. Your brain is like a computer and controls the whole body via these nerves, so when these spinal nerves are affected it can also affect your health and well-being. Many of people initially come in for pain relief, but after discovering the health benefits of chiropractic, many choose to remain as a regular client to maintain their health in a natural, drug free way.
In a nutshell… Chiropractors work on the spine to improve the movement and function of the spinal joints. They do this by gently releasing jammed vertebrae. Not only can this reduce pain and stiffness, but it can also improve health and well-being by reducing irritation to the central nervous system.
