Chiropractic is a health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the functions of the nervous system and general health.
There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal adjustment and other joints and soft-tissue manipulation. (World Federation of Chiropractic, 2001)
By restoring normal function to the musculoskeletal system, chiropractors can play a major part in relieving disorders, and any accompanying pain or discomfort, arising from accidents, stress, lack of exercise, poor posture, illness and the everyday wear and tear that happens to all of us.
The following conditions respond very well to chiropractic:
- Back pain, neck & shoulder pain
- Sciatica, pins & needles
- Joint stiffness, loss of flexibilty
- Muscular tension
- General tiredness
- Headaches & migraines
- Injuries, falls & traumas
- Posture related problems
My experience shows that over 75% of most common problems are lifestyle related. The way you feel is a result of how much stress, trauma and toxicity there is in your body. Your pain and discomfort are letting you know that your body is out of balance. As a result, its ability to look after itself is deeply affected. Your immune response is slowed down, your digestive system is not regulated, your internal chemistry is impaired which in turn renders your body toxic. General resistance and fitness are depleted causing your body to break down leaving it with a host of conditions.
