What is Chiropractic?

Doctors of Chiropractic medicine (D.C.s) are family doctors. They adjust the spine with easy, manual thrusts to move the spinal vertebrae back to their normal positions. A chiropractor will sometimes also adjust the joints of the neck, arms, and legs. Spinal adjustments may relieve a spectrum of ailments such as neck pain, back pain, headaches, migraines, arm, hand, and leg pain that’s due to dysfunction of the neck or lower back.
 
If your neck or lower back has bothered you, you are not alone. Eight out of ten adults will experience neck pain and/or low back pain at some time in their lives. Most symptoms are blamed on car accidents, sports injuries, poor muscle tone, muscle tension, spasms, ligament or muscle tears, and joint problems.
 
In the past individuals have subjected themselves to prolonged bed rest, uncomfortable traction, heavy sedation, injections, and surgery. But there is a safer, more natural approach to healing the back: Chiropractic care.
 

Could chiropractic help you?

Back pain may be the most common reason patients seek the expertise of a chiropractor, but chiropractic techniques accomplish far more. They help patients with acute or chronic issues, including headaches, neck pain, sciatica and improper function of the nervous system that may result from car accidents, sports injuries, heredity and other causes.
 
Busy parents, athletes, weekend warriors, golfers, runners,  anyone can benefit a great deal from routine chiropractic care. Regular chiropractic visits may help maintain bodies at the high level of activity to which they have become accustomed and even aid in function allowing the body to self-heal when proper alignment is achieved and maintained. Additionally, sports injuries are less likely to be serious and can heal at a significantly faster rate in those who receive regular chiropractic care, especially when combined with other healthy activities such as regular exercise and eating a nutritious diet.
 
Because chiropractic healthcare is holistic care, patients look to chiropractors for general wellness, too. In fact, preventive healthcare is among the fastest growing areas of chiropractic care.

Children and Chiropractic

 
Some people wonder why more and more parents are taking their children to see chiropractors. The answer is simple: whether we have a large spine or a tiny little one, if that spine is negatively impacting the communication of the nervous system then our body is unable regulate and co-ordinate itself correctly…
 
 

“How do little kids get nerve irritation?”

 
Nerve irritations (or vertebral subluxations) occur as a part of normal daily life. They may result from physical, chemical and emotional stressors or ‘insults’ to our health, such as bad posture, prolonged postures, sleeping on our stomachs, knocks and falls, poor food choices, dehydration, exposure to chemicals and toxins, and stress and anxiety.
 
Some research suggests that even before these lifestyle stressors have an impact, nerve irritation may occur in the uterus from awkward positioning, restriction of movement in the womb and exposure to toxins. Subluxations or nerve irritation may also occur from birth complications such as long labours, very fast labours, or forceps or caesarean delivery.
 
Babies can be checked by chiropractors very soon after birth and special techniques have been developed to carefully correct any subluxated areas. When we appreciate how the nervous system may be hindered and impaired it makes sense why more parents are having their child’s spine and nervous system assessed.
