Chiropractic is a complementary health practice where the natural healing abilities of the body are emphasized. It focuses on the spine and how it relates to the body as a whole. A Chiropractor is a licensed Doctor concerned with the integrity of the neuromusculoskeletal system. Disorders of the spine and musculoskeletal system, such as back and neck pain, sciatica or migraines, are treated by optimizing the nervous system and restoring the function of the soft tissues, nerves and muscles, improving overall health and posture.
Chiropractors are extensively educated in the prevention, assessment, diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal and neurological conditions. Dysfunction of our joints can result in abnormal nervous system patterns which can lead to poor soft tissue and muscle function. This combination can affect the body’s ability to respond to stresses in the environment, as well as cause painful conditions. Chiropractic care is aimed at improving spinal function and preventing these abnormal patterns, allowing full communication between the brain & body through the spine. This enables the body to respond effectively to stresses placed upon it.
