Chiropractic in 100 Words
Aches and pains are signs that the body is not working right. The brain, spinal cord and nerves control how the body functions. Physical, chemical or emotional stresses produce defensive postures. Muscles contract, lock or shift spinal joints that then pinch or irritate nearby nerves. Lack of nervous system integrity sets the stage for disease and ill health. A thorough examination helps chiropractors find problems. Applying precise force (adjustments) to subluxation (subluxated) spinal joints helps the body right itself. Health usually returns as regular visits restore nervous system integrity. That’s why chiropractic care has helped millions get well and stay well.

Feels Great
As practitioners, we rely on these adjustments to help your body right itself and it is our highly trained and proficient skills we rely on to adjust the spine and other areas safely. After an adjustment, most patients report a sense of wellbeing and ease. If these adjustments weren’t pleasant, our patients wouldn’t return for the subsequent visits needed to retrain their spine!

The Emerging Wellness Model
We encourage our patients to achieve the highest levels of health they can. Through educational opportunities (like this website), we hope to communicate the value of ongoing chiropractic care. Our desire is to see people move away from the prevailing sickness care model of health (waiting for symptoms and then taking action), in favour of the emerging wellness model – Wellness Care.

Everyone Can Benefit
Newborns, Infants and Children, Pregnant Women, the Elderly and even Back Surgery Patients can be adjusted. Adjustments are tailored to each patient’s size, age and particular health issues and needs.

Spinal Conditions
Typical ailments chiropractic treats including but not limited to Sciatica, Scoliosis, Slipped Disc, Trauma, Whiplash and Motor Vehicle Related Injuries

Not Just the Spine
Whilst improving spinal biomechanics can reduce nervous system interference to virtually all parts of the body, including Extremities/Joints to help restore proper range of motion, other treatable conditions include Asthma, Bedwetting, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Colic, Ear Infection, Headache, Neck Pain, Pinched Nerve, Premenstrual Syndrome and Stress.
