Chiropractic is a holistic, hands on approach to health that believes in the self-healing ability of the body, and hence, the proactive involvement of the patient. Chiropractic helps reduce predisposition for disease by addressing the underlying cause of complaints. It focuses on improving the health of the nervous system by removing abnormal pressures or stress that affect nerve transmissions, and hence, the body's performance and function.
The spinal cord located in the vertebral column is the main pathway for nerve messages to and from the brain. Nerves branch out from the spinal cord through holes on either side of the vertebral column, so misaligned vertebra may compromise or irritate nerve signals, which negatively impact one's health.
Chiropractors use regular, small, specific and controlled adjustment using various techniques to improve the function of your spine and the closely related central nervous system. Adjustments introduce movement and stimulation of the nervous system which helps re-educate your body towards better alignment so that it can perform at its peak. This combats the accumulation of daily stresses and activities. First conceived over 100 years ago, Chiro has brought incredible changes to the lives of countless people worldwide.
Who should see a chiropractor?
Spinal nerve stress is a fact of modern life. In many ways, our bodies are still designed to be swinging from trees - we are built to be upright and far more active than modern sedentary society allows. You go to a dentist to get your teeth checked for cavities; you go to a doctor to get a health check. Going to a chiro to receive a periodic spinal check-up makes good preventative sense.
The body is remarkably effective at compensating for injuries, malalignment or other problems. Your body may only begin experiencing pain after years of malalignment and compensatory behaviour when it can no longer cope. Your Chiro helps re-educate your body away from patterns of behaviour that are compensating for less-than-optimum health. Rather than waiting until you are in pain, Chiro is a preventative, complementary procedure to ensure optimum health at all times.
What exactly is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a philosophy and practice which seeks to keep the bones of the spine in their proper relationships with each other, in order to allow the body to express its maximum potential.
What do you mean by maximum potential?
Each individual human being has his or her own unique blend of potentials pre-programmed by genetic heritage long before birth. These include such factors as the capacity to see and to hear, the capacity for eye hand coordination in work and play, the capacity to think clearly, to remember, to reason, to organize thoughts, to solve problems, the capacity to resist disease and to recover from injury. The capacity for balanced emotional response, for humor, for love. These are but a few examples of the many potentials and capacities inherent within the individual. While nobody can know the outermost limits of these potentials, it is easy to see how failure to express them fully would make us less than we could be.
What have the bones of the spine to do with expressing potential?
The bones of the spine protect the spinal cord, glands and other body parts. It has been shown that tiny misalignment of spinal bones, called vertebral sub-luxations can interfere with normal nerve impulses to and from the brain, and thereby disrupt the harmonious interaction of body parts. Because some of the disturbed glands and organs manufacture body chemicals, the totality of body chemistry is thus disturbed. This disturbance in the balance of the body chemistry affects every physical, mental and emotional aspect of life, and interferes with the expressions of full potential.
Are you saying that internal changes in body chemistry, caused by vertebral subluxation, can affect such mental factors as mood or memory or creative ability?
Of course. We have only to think of the physical, emotional and mental changes that can result from alcohol, drugs or even medicines, to realize how important body chemistry is disturbed either by adding chemicals from outside, or by changing what the body manufactures from inside, the result always affects every aspect of life.
Does it hurt?
No, it is very gentle
Is chiropractic safe?
Yes, Chiropractors are skilled professionals, meticulously trained in a five year program.
How do you know if you have a vertebral subluxation?
Unfortunately, Most of the time you don't. It is true that some vertebral subluxations may produce pain or muscle spasms, but most do not. One way to be sure is to have your spine checked at the our clinic.
How do Chiropractors identify vertebral subluxations?
The procedure is based upon the fact that the body always uses its spinal muscles to try and correct any and all subluxations. Chiropractors use their highly trained and sensitive fingers to identify exactly what the body is trying to do with any spinal bone. If the body is trying to unsuccessfully to move a bone, the Chiropractor implicitly trusts the body's innate wisdom to know what it is doing, and offers a little extra thrust for the body to complete the job. When the balance of spinal muscles again indicates that the body is content with the position of all spinal bones, the chiropractor is also satisfies and nothing further is done.
What particular physical, mental or emotional conditions respond to Chiropractic?
One of the potentials which could be reduced by vertebral subluxation is the body's potential for health. A body which has vertebral subluxation could never be a s healthy as it could be under the same circumstances, but with out the subluxation. Whatever potential one has for resisting disease or recovering from disease will obviously be better expressed without subluxation.
But it is important to realize that all people are better off without vertebral subluxation, without regard to whether they are sick or well.
When asked "what do chiropractors do?" most people would say that they treat back pain or fix bad necks.
Although this is true, the scope of chiropractic is far wider than the common perceptions held by most. It is true that chiropractors spend most of their time working on the joints and muscles of the spine, but the effect that this has is far greater than just relieving aches and pains.
Studies have shown that chiropractic care not only improves the function of the joints and muscles, but also the nervous system as a whole. As the nervous system controls all processes in the body, an improvement in its function can have profound effects on health.
Our aim is to work with our patients to achieve optimum health and well-being through a properly working nervous system.
