Chiropractic is the hands-on treatment of the spine, peripheral joints and muscles to alleviate pain and dysfunction of the Musculo-skeletal system.
Chiropractic treatment is based on the fact that your nervous system controls every function in your body. The nervous system consists of the brain, which is protected by the skull, the spinal cord which is protected by 24 flexible vertebrae and millions of nerves.
When any of these 24 flexible vertebrae lose their normal movement or function the nervous system can malfunction which will lead to pain, ill health and disease.
Working on all the joints of the body, concentrating particularly on the spine, Chiropractors use their hands to make gentle, specific adjustments (the chiropractic word for manipulation) to improve mobility of the joints, efficiency of the nervous system and release the body's natural healing ability.
