Chiropractic specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of conditions due to mechanical dysfunction of the joints, particularly the spine, and their effects on the nervous system.
Chiropractors use their hands to perform gentle and precise adjustments which re-align the spine, relieve irritation to the nerves, improve mobility of joints and relax muscle spasm. This enables your nervous system to function at its optimum level and releases your body’s natural healing potential.
Correct function of the spine can be affected by a number of stresses in modern day living; physical, chemical and emotional stresses. Physical factors include poor posture, lack of exercise, repetitive strain at work and car accidents, chemical factors, such as diet and water intake, and most importantly, emotional stresses, which is often seen to have the biggest effect on the function of your nervous system.
