What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a health profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of conditions that are due to mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system. It focuses on the effect these disorders have on the function of the nervous system, improving general health.
By restoring normal function to the musculoskeletal system, chiropractors can help relieve pain and discomfort and any associated disorders arising from accidents, stress, lack of exercise, poor posture and everyday wear and tear.
Chiropractors take a holistic approach to health and well being by considering physical, psychological and social aspects of a person's health.
Chiropractic treatment involves gentle, specific adjustments, done by hand, to free joints in the spine and other areas of the body that are not moving properly. This improves mobility and relieves pain. The treatment often requires a short thrust to a joint that can result in an audible 'crack'. The 'crack' is simply the sound made by bubbles of gas popping in the fluid of the joint as the pressure is released.
Depending on your condition your treatment may also be supplemented by dry needling (a form of acupuncture), lifestyle advice and rehabilitative exercise.
