What does a Chiropractor do?

 

 

A Chiropractic Adjustment by one of our Chiropractors

Chiropractors work with the nervous system. When there is misalignment of the spine it can interfere with the nervous system, this is sometimes called a ‘subluxation’ or ‘trapped nerve’. The aim of the Chiropractor is to ensure that the joints of the spine are aligned and moving freely using the Chiropractic Adjustment; this allows the nerves to work at their optimum. The misalignments of the spine are caused by two types of trauma.The most common cause of a trapped nerve is poor posture and the small repetitive movements we do everydayThe big traumas like a car accident or falling down the stairs and the small, repetitive traumas of everyday life. These small traumas can be caused by, for example, repeatedly slouching in front of a computer and other poor postures, the stress of a deadline, lifting children, gardening and exercising incorrectly. When these joints are misaligned they can impinge on the nerves affecting how they work; this can cause a myriad of problems and painful symptoms. These symptoms commonly include low back pain and sciatica, also neck pain and headaches.  Although, often these misalignments cause no obvious symptoms and remain undetected.Chiropractors work by realigning the joints of the spine; removing pressure from the nerves and allowing optimum function of the nervous systemBy realigning the bones of the spine, Chiropractors remove the pressure on the nerves and allows optimum function of the nervous system. With restored balance and function the body’s natural ability to heal itself can come into effect, and then you start feeling much, much better!

How do Chiropractic and Massage work together?

Chiropractic care and sports massage compliment one another beautifully.  We read above how every day activities like regularly spending prolonged periods of time driving or a stressful job with frequent tight deadlines cause joints to move out of position.  When this happens, not only does it affect the nerves, it also causes muscle imbalance and tension. Chiropractic care works to realign the joints of the spine and massage relaxes the muscles around the spine.Chiropractic care works to realign the joints of the spine and massage relaxes the muscles around the spineProperly relaxed muscles after a massage help the joints to hold the realignment that the Chiropractic adjustments are doing, helping the Chiropractic care to work quicker and more effectively.  Through both treatments we are addressing the joints, the nerves and the muscles giving the body the best opportunity to heal itself and get you feeling fantastic. Together they work wonders!
