"Chiropractic is a safe, natural, drug-free, and effective method of health care. It is the third largest primary health care profession in the western world and it is one of the fastest growing."
Chiropractic focuses on the relationship between your spine and nervous system and how that relationship affects the restoration and preservation of health and well-being.
Chiropractic care is primarily aimed at the detection and correction of abnormal spinal movement and position (termed the vertebral subluxation). After thorough examination and analysis, chiropractors use carefully controlled and directed pressure (adjustments) to restore proper spinal function and thereby reduce interference to the vital nervous system. Chiropractors also recognise the importance of nutrition, exercise and other lifestyle factors on overall health and will often advise on these aspects during your care.
A healthy spine and nervous system, working at its very best, can help anyone at any time in their life; regardless of age, condition, presence or absence of disease, or obvious symptoms.
Chiropractic is not a 'treatment' as such for any particular symptom or disease, but rather a method of helping to ensure optimal joint function and nerve communication and is thus able to effectively assist the body in healing a wide array of symptoms and conditions.
