What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a natural approach to better health, based on the idea that due to the realtionship of the joints and muscles of the spine to the function of nervous systems, a healthy spine is fundamental to good health and well-being. Chiropractors aim to restore, optimize and then maintain optimal function and alignment of your spine.

It is very important that your nervous system works properly, because it controls and coordinates the function of every single cell in your body.
When the bones of your spine are locked in an abnormal position, what Chiropractors refer to as a vertebral "subluxation", it compromises the mechanical and neurological integrity of the spine, and can result in spinal pain and dysfunction of the nervous system.
The primary focus of chiropractic care is to detect, correct and then prevent spinal joint dysfunction.
Chiropractors correct subluxations with a technique known as an adjustment. The adjustment is usually performed by hand (ie. manipulation or gentle pressure techniques), or by using a special instrument called an 'Activator. The purpose of the Adjustment is to restore normal movement to the spinal joint and align the spine.
