Chiropractic Explained

Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that uses spinal adjustments to restore proper function to the motion segments to ultimately reduce the irritation to the nervous system and helping your body to heal naturally. Chiropractic doesn't use drugs or surgery. Rather, a chiropractic spinal adjustment (the application of a precise force to a specific part of the spinal segment) corrects the misalignment, permitting normal nerve transmission and assisting your body to recuperate on its own.

Chiropractors are recognised as primary health care practitioners and undertake 5 years of university training. They are trained to diagnose and treat a variety of musculoskeletal complaints, not just back pain.

We adjust the spine and all the extremities. Many people request a gentle hands-on approach which often gives the fastest results. Much of our manual adjustments include shoulder, elbow and wrist adjustments in the upper limb and hip, knee and ankle adjustments in the lower limb.
