WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC?
Chiropractic is a health care profession dedicated to the non-surgical treatment of disorders of the nervous system and/or musculoskeletal system. Generally, chiropractors maintain a unique focus on spinal manipulation and treatment of surrounding structures.
Many studies have concluded that manual therapies commonly used by chiropractors are generally effective for the treatment of lower back pain, as well as for treatment of lumbar herniated disc for radiculopathy and neck pain, among other conditions.
In fact, when patients with non-specific chronic low back pain are treated by chiropractors, the long-term outcome is enhanced by obtaining maintenance spinal manipulation after the initial intensive manipulative therapy.
Chiropractic is the largest drug-free health profession in the world. Chiropractors specialise in maximising the function of your nervous system, which is protected by your spinal column. Your nervous system is the most important thing in your body and can be likened to a computer being able to process information quickly and then relay information back and forth between your brain and body. Chiropractors are committed to enhancing that flow of information naturally by ensuring that the joints of the spine are moving optimally, which removes any pressure off the nervous system and increases your bodies ability to heal naturally.
There is a growing body of research that supports the health benefits and effectiveness of chiropractic, from decreasing back pain or sciatica, relief of headaches or other symptoms, enhancing sporting performance, through to decreasing labour times and pain experienced in labour and much more. Regardless of whether or not you have a specific issue, having your nervous system functioning at its best is going to support your health.

Remember, that ultimately it is your body that does the healing. Chiropractic care is a fantastic way to optimise your body's natural ability to adapt and heal.
An adjustment is not a specific treatment for any symptom or disease but instead it optimises the function of your nervous system by restoring better motion and/or alignment to the joints of your spine.
Normal movement of the spinal joints is a prerequisite for normal brain and nervous system function. Your nervous system coordinates every movement that you do and controls every organ/gland/cell in your body. Therefore, a chiropractic adjustment allows your body to function at its best and thus allow it the opportunity to heal.
Please note that chiropractic care is not a substitute for medical care, any more than medical or other form of care, is a substitute for chiropractic care. Chiropractic is not a form or branch of medicine.
Medical doctors specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Chiropractic doctors specialise in the detection and correction of subluxations to ensure that the nervous system functions optimally and enhances the expression of life, health and proper function of an individual.
