Chiropractic care is a branch of healthcare that focuses on the relationship between the body’s structure – mainly the spine – and its function. Conditions commonly managed by chiropractors can include back and neck pain, headaches, sports injuries and repetitive strains. Patients may also seek advice on pain associated with other conditions.
Chiropractic is derived from Greek words meaning “done by hand.” In practice, this translates to Chiropractic adjustments of the spine and joints to help relieve pain and stiffness, improving the function of the associated nerves, joints and muscles.
Subluxations ( a misaligned vertebra) can cause inflammation and ultimately pain in nerves, joints and muscles. By manually adjusting vertebra, Chiropractors correct subluxations, helping to restoring the nervous system to its optimal level.
Chiropractic treatments begin with a medical case history, orthopaedic and neurological evaluation and might conclude with adjustments to help realign the spine.
