A Chiropractor uses gentle, controlled and targeted pressure on different areas of the spinal column in order to restore the biomechanics of the spinal column and the function of the nervous system.
It is the objective to correct all problems that can stem from blockages to the flow of information to and from the brain.
Disruptions to this critical communication system can produce symptoms ranging from pain through to illness.
Depending on how chronic the problem is, the Chiropractor will have to apply one or a series of adjustments in order to restore proper pain-free motion. The Chiropractor can offer precise help with problems of a clearly skeletal or muscular nature by locating and correcting neuromuscular disorders of the spinal column in their early stages. Clients can thus be helped by having their body produced its own healing response whilst any possible tissue damage is still minimal and reversible.
Limitations or blockages to the mobility of our vertebrae can occur.
These impair the harmony of movement of the whole spinal column as well as the function of the nervous system and the tension created this way is conveyed to the meninges (the membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord). Chiropractors refer to this as vertebral subluxation.
When we feel pain and our nervous system is negatively influenced, the body will try to compensate for this defective position by either shifting other vertebra or using its muscles. This results in having problems with the whole body structure and posture.
A blocked cervical vertebra can therefore be the cause of any number of disc problems and the aggravation of the central nervous system can also even have a detrimental effect on individual organs. These conditions make it quite clear how very much your own personal well-being depends on the condition of your whole musculoskeletal system. This is precisely where the Chiropractic skills are applied..
