Chiropractic techniques are an effective, safe and proven form of treatment for lower back and spinal conditions.
Chiropractic is a primary health care service focused primarily on the diagnosis, management and prevention of musculoskeletal and nervous system disorders.
Our nervous system is comprised of our brain and spinal cord, which is like an information super highway. This pathway is crucial in allowing normal movement of our bodies, proper functioning of our organs, tissues and cells. If these pathways become temporarily interrupted due to nerve entrapment, inflammation or other impairments. This could lead to negative effects on our health, movement, and lead to pain or discomfort.
It is therefore crucial that our nervous system is functioning optimally and the protective bones surrounding the spinal cord are in proper alignment.
The bones surrounding our spine are constantly moving, allowing us to bend, rotate and flex our bodies. At times these bones can occasionally get stuck leading to a feeling of tightness, fatigue, pain and decreased range of motion, usually in the neck or back.
Chiropractic care aims to improve overall health by identifying and correcting these structural imbalances. By doing so, we can improve joint mobility, improve function, reduce inflammation and reduce pain levels.
