ABOUT CHIROPRACTIC

Rachel Hodson treating patientChiropractic is a health care profession which specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that are due to mechanical dysfunction of several joints and the resulting effect on their related nerves.

The treatment involves safe and gentle adjustments by hand to free joints that are not functioning properly. Poor, inadequate or incorrect function of the spine can cause irritation of the nerves and muscles that control our posture and movement.

This spinal nerve stress (which may be caused by factors such as wear and tear, poor diet, lack of exercise, poor posture and anxiety), can lead to symptoms of discomfort and pain, which are a warning sign that your body is not functioning properly.

How does it work?

Chiropractic care aims to improve and restore joint mobility and function of the spine and other joints.

Hazel Dillon treating patientBy aligning joints, chiropractors stimulate the proprioceptors – your body’s position sensors, which provide feedback to the brain on where the joint is in relation to the rest of the body. This stimulation can affect the way the related nerves work.

Gentle adjustments help the affected nerves and postural muscles to work at their optimal potential. Sometimes it may take time for this to occur, depending upon the duration of symptoms and the lifestyle you lead.

Chiropractic care is centred on treating the root cause of your problems, without drugs or medical intervention in the first instance, it may therefore take a little longer to achieve optimum results, but we aim to improve your long-term health and not just your current circumstances.
