More information about chiropractic
What is chiropractic?
Chiropractic focuses on the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular, musculoskeletal and nervous system health.
A bit of background: the word ‘chiropractic’ is derived from Greek, meaning ‘perform with the hands’. Needless to say, the most important aspect of chiropractic treatment is the manual adjustment of the joints and muscles of your body.
Chiropractors are your go-to when you to relieve, recover from and prevent symptoms like back pain, tiredness, discomfort, awkward mobility to help you get back to living your best possible lifestyle as quickly as possible.
Why do I need chiro cover?
Your spine houses your central nervous system, which is a pretty big deal! So when your spine is out of alignment or not moving properly it not only hurts, but it also hinders the nerve communication along your spine. And let’s not forget your joints – these guys put up with a lot of stress and can get quite painful. Your chiro can manipulate your joints to normalize thei function and reduce pain both in the joint and surrounding muscles.
After the first session, you’ll feel much more aligned and any acute pain should be on its way to subsiding. You’ll definitely begin to feel more aware of the way your spine moves – little things like the way you sit, stand and walk. You’ll walk out of your chiro’s practice feeling ‘adjusted’, but ultimately you’ll feel more aware and empowered.
What can I expect from my chiro treatment?
The treatment is often manual and ‘hands-on’. This means that they work with manipulations, but chiropractors are very communicative, so you can rest assured they will make you feel very comfortable and at ease.
The treatment is designed to help you recover from what ails you, and to educate you on ways to prevent it from happening again (did you even know that your spinal health could be responsible for ailments like constipation?) As a patient you are involved in your own care through awareness and education in your own treatment.
