Millions of people enjoy Chiropractic – the most natural, drug-free health care system in the world. It is based on the scientific fact that the nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body, and emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body.
While the brain is protected by the skull, the spinal cord is more vulnerable, covered by 24 moving vertebrae. When these bones lose their normal motion or position, they can irritate the nervous system. This disrupts the function of the tissues or organs that the nerves control and is called a subluxation.
Chiropractic adjustments use gentle, specific forces to normalize spinal function.In our office these adjustments consist of gentle, manual re-alignments, joint mobilisation and stabilisation exercise and very importantly, traction (gentle stretching) to ensure that the spine returns to a more perfect shape.
This shows the devastating effects that occur when we lose the normal curve of our neck. It is there for a reason and if posture or trauma results in a loss of or worse still a reversal of this curve, there is ALWAYS an acceleration of the degeneration or ‘aging’ process.
