what is Chiropractic?

As more and more people seek a natural approach to healthcare, chiropractic is the fastest growing wellness profession in the world. Today, it is the third largest primary health care profession in the West after medicine and dentistry and is legally recognized in over 45 countries.

It is a patient-centred, non-invasive, hands-on, evidence-based regulated health care for chronic and acute injuries as well as a healthy lifestyle choice. It focuses on the musculoskeletal system as well as the nervous system and how they can impact your overall health. When your nervous system is functioning properly, the body is better able to heal itself and reach its full potential.

The 24 moving bones (vertebrae) of the spinal column, protect the vulnerable communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots. Loss of normal movement can affect the function of the nervous system. This can interfere with the transmission of nerve impulses. Chiropractors call this the vertebral subluxation complex. Chiropractic is the science of locating these joint subluxations, both in the spine and in all other joints of the body and reduce their impact on the nervous system through chiropractic adjustments.

Chiropractic care is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism.

What is an adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment involves the application of a controlled, high-velocity force in a specific direction on a fixated joint.

Chiropractors have been specially and extensively trained to perform this procedure. Adjustments improve mobility, restore range of motion, and increase movement of adjoining muscles to relieve pressure and tension.

A chiropractor customizes the procedure to each patient’s specific needs. The amount of force used varies depending on the age and presentation of the client. Of course, a baby or elderly person will be adjusted very gently. Many people notice a reduction in pain, soreness, and stiffness immediately after treatment.

Chiropractic adjustments can restore and maintain your body’s natural ability to heal and provide increased vitality, energy, body function and overall well-being. If you are considering preventative health care, call us to schedule an appointment today.
