What is Chiropractics?
Chiropractics is a regulated profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders affecting the musculoskeletal system, particularly involving the spine and its effects on your nervous system. Chiropractics is the largest natural health care discipline in the UK. Natural health care means that Chiropractors do not promote drugs or surgery. Our approach is to remove nervous system disturbance (usually along the spine) that can restore your ability to self-heal or maintain your ideal health. Many people assume Chiropractics is limited to the treatment of back pain, but as Primary Healthcare Providers we are consulted about a whole range of conditions. Chiropractors also place an emphasis on nutrition, exercise, wellness and healthy lifestyle modifications which, when correctly applied, will improve the health of the individuals.
Chiropractics is based on the scientific fact that your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. Your nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord and millions of nerves. Your brain is protected by the skull, and your spinal cord by the 24 moving bones of the spine. Many everyday activities can cause these spinal bones to lose their normal position or motion. This can result in nervous system dysfunction and ultimately, ill health.
The techniques used by Chiropractors are acquired over years of study and experience, they are specifically tailored to your needs and condition; chiropractors have an enviable safety record. In fact, in the words of a classic New Zealand study, chiropractic care is ‘remarkably safe’. Chiropractors honour your health goals – whether you want short-term relief or lifetime wellness care.
Chiropractic care involves the precise handling or moving of joints in the spine or the limbs. Our aim is to apply gentle movements to the spine to take the pressure off the nerves. This aims to normalise their movement and make your body better able to cope with your normal daily activities.
