Chiropractic is a science, philosophy and an art. It specialises in the neuromusculoskeletal system and the role that plays in your well-being.
The nervous system which is encased within your spine is the master controller of your body. It controls your senses, organs movement, thoughts and emotions. Importantly it also controls the coordination of the intricate healing process.
The key concept of the Chiropractic philosophy is that, through the nervous system, your body is able to self-regulate and self-heal. This means that your body has an in-built ability to be abundantly healthy. Chiropractic is a drug-free, natural approach that encourages the body to restore itself back to optimal wellness.
Chiropractors use a wide range of techniques with an emphasis on manual spinal adjustments. The goals being;
To improve joint function
Reduce pain and inflammation
Reduce muscle spasm
Allow your body to self-heal and be well
Chiropractors believe that your health his made up of a balance between your physical, chemical and emotional health. The 3 Ts; Traumas, Toxins and Thoughts are the main detractors from health.
This can be the obvious things like slips, trips, falls and motor vehicle accidents. But let's not forget the less obvious things that have a big impact like, poor posture and sitting for long periods of time.
Is what you're putting in, or surrounding your body with nourishing or harming you?Your diet, your work and home environment, the air you breathe, the water you drink. All these things can impact your chemical load.
Our thoughts change our internal world which can have an outward expression on us physically. Stress alone is linked to many chronic conditions such as; cardiovascular disease, weight gain, depression, anxiety, diabetes and headaches.

This is the hands on part of your journey. A Chiropractic adjustment is a highly trained and specialised procedure. Your Chiropractor will use their hands, a small instrument or different tools to apply a controlled, measured force to a spinal joint. The goal of a Chiropractic adjustment is to correct structural alignment, and improve function of the nervous system. This will optimise the connections from your brain to your body, allowing you to express life at a higher level.

Though many people will first see a Chiropractor for painful conditions such as back, neck pain and headaches. We understand that in an intricate and intelligent body, single conditions or symptom don't exists in isolation. A well-functioning spine is integral to our overall health. So while we can help with the items listed below and others, our aim is not to treat your pain, but to balance and enhance the function of your spine and the central nervous system that it protects. Below are just some of the common conditions that people will see a Chiropractor for. This is not an exhaustive list; many people will see us just for wellness visits or for prevention.
This is the most common reason people will first seek Chiropractic care. Many clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of Chiropractic for lower back pain.
Low Back pain
Disc injuries can result from sudden trauma as well as prolonged inappropriate loading of the joints of the spine. Chiropractic can help alleviate the associated pain, get your moving again and address the underlying cause.
Our modern stressful lifestyle and reliance on computers and smart phones has lead to neck pain being the second most common reason people will seek Chiropractic care.
Joint pain can arise from a range of causes. A Chiropractor can help assess the cause of the pain and attempt to offer relief of pain and rehabilitative exercises.
As well as many more...
Spinal misalignment is one of the most common causes of headaches. Research suggests that Chiropractic care can help alleviate the severity and frequency of headahces and Migraines.
