The spine is literally the backbone of our health. It protects the spinal cord, which is our central switchboard, controlling all processes in the body. It is only when the nervous system is free from interference that we can experience complete health, wellbeing and vitality.
Interference comes in many forms, from medication and environmental pollutants, to mechanical tension from old injuries and emotional events that create a stress response in the body.
This can affect the normal movement of the spine and create tension and wear on the delicate nerves that control how our bodies coordinate and express themselves.
Effects of interference
In such an environment, where your nervous system is not functioning optimally, your body may be more susceptible to a range of conditions, including:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Joint pains
- Muscle pain and spasms
- Tension and stiffness
How chiropractic can help
Chiropractic is a whole body treatment that restores your nervous system to its optimum functionality. Practitioners use their hands to skilfully adjust the spine using a variety of techniques.
By making specific contacts to the joints, muscles and connecting tissues, natural movement throughout the spine is restored. This allows your body to release tension and emotional blocks, removing any interference.
Chiropractic care is safe and effective for all people, of all ages. Ultimately, your body does the work; chiropractic just gives it the tools it needs to heal more effectively.
