Chiropractors are body mechanics. They diagnose, treat and prevent joint, bone and muscle disorders.
The musculoskeletal system is the largest system in the human body. It's made up of muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and numerous neurological components that coordinate it. Chiropractors specialise in maintaining this system, allowing it to function more effectively and with minimum wear and tear. Where there is a problem, chiropractic treatment provides effective relief from the pain or discomfort.
Focusing on your posture, chiropractic treatment uses gentle spinal ‘adjustments’ to loosen joints that are not moving properly. The adjustments improve mobility, stretching the joint capsule and ligaments of the restricted joint. As a result the joint becomes more supple and functions better. This restores movement and reduces pain.
Most people associate chiropractic care with the treatment of back and neck pain. We go further than that... our chiropractors take into consideration your overall health before embarking on a treatment programme. They can help if you're suffering from:
