Chiropractic is suitable for all ages from babies to the elderly, and also during pregnancy.
Your nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord and all the nerves of your body.
Chiropractors are concerned with the framework of bones and muscles that support the body (the ‘musculoskeletal system’). Some problems of the musculoskeletal system can be caused by accidents, stress, lack of exercise, poor posture, illness and everyday wear and tear.
These problems may cause pressure on the nerves in the body.
Chiropractic is the science of locating these areas, and correcting them, thus allowing the nervous system to function at its optimal level.
Chiropractic takes a natural approach to health. Chiropractors may manipulate parts of the spine or joints and give advice on exercise, self-help, diet and lifestyle.
Manipulation involves precisely handling or moving joints, or parts of the spine to help decrease inflammation, restore movement and release pressure on the nerves, leading to decreased pain and increased range of motion.
