Chiropractice Care and Allignment of the Spine
Chiropractic is a healthcare profession that is concerned with the alignment of the spine and the effect that this can have on your body's nervous -system.
Your brain controls the body via the nervous system and controls everything you do - the things you do consciously and those that you don't - such as digesting your food.
Chiropractors refer to misalignments of the vertebra as “chiropractic subluxations”. Subluxations can interfere with nerve flow and can cause discomfort and pain.
Pain is very good at getting your brain to change your movement patterns which is good when you are injured, by stopping yourself from further damage, but sometimes this altered movement can continue even after the injury has healed. By careful assessment of the whole spine and the relationship of one vertebra to the next, any misalignment or segments that are not functioning correctly can be identified. By making adjustments to the spine we can remove the irritation to your nervous system.
By ensuring that the spine and nervous system are working as they should, your bodies innate intelligence will enables you to perform at your best.
Although chiropractors are known for adjusting the spine, misalignments can also occur in other joints of the body such as the feet, knees and hands. Adjustment of these areas can also help to restore correct function.
