Chiropractic manipulation, also known as Chiropractic adjustment, is a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes examination, diagnosis, and treatment to correct structural alignment and improve overall physical function. It is a widely used and highly effective form of alternative treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counselling.
Chiropractic manipulation is most often utilised to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of arms and legs, and headaches.
Manipulation or adjustment of affected joints and tissues restores mobility, reducing pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal. As a treatment method, chiropractic manipulation targets mechanical problems which in turn help alleviate wider issues of health and well-being within the body.
While the obvious benefit of chiropractic treatment would appear to be a relief from pain as a result of structural adjustments, the more widely felt and profound benefit comes from placing your body in the correct position which allows it to heal itself.
As a holistic treatment, a chiropractor can help reduce the stress placed on the immune system as a result of structural imbalance. With this stress load removed there is energy available for your body to direct towards a healthy immune system, disease prevention and maintaining a state of balance.
We pride ourselves on providing a drug-free and natural treatment option to help our patients find their best health. We strongly believe in the healing power of the body. Under the right conditions, amazing transformations in health are possible. We endeavour wherever possible to reset your body to the condition it should be and facilitate an environment where self-healing occurs.
Ultimately, chiropractic care emphasizes the recuperating power of the body to heal itself without drugs or surgery. The relationship between the structure of your body – primarily the spine, and your function – controlled by the nervous system, plays a huge role in overall health. As the nervous system controls every cell and organ in the body, when the spine is properly aligned, the framework exists for a healthy nervous system to carry good health and wellbeing around the body. If you’re looking for a Chiropractor near you, allow us to help these systems work together and make the preservation and restoration of health your greatest asset.
