You will notice on some of the pages in this section there are notices that say: Chiropractic is not a treatment for this ‘Condition’.

This sounds like a contradiction, but what it means is that while Chiropractic is not able to treat or cure the condition itself, it can help the body be better prepared for recovery from the underlying condition.

Also, as all muscles, ligaments, tendons and even organs have a nerve supply, people may get pain and other symptoms of spinal pain coming from other sources (eg. a person having a heart attack experiencing pain in the left arm, left shoulder and/or the left jaw). These are known as viscerosomatic (visecera meaning organ and somatic meaning body surface) reflexes.

The premise of chiropractic is that the body has an innate or inbuilt ability to fix itself if the proper environment is present. In this sense, having the nervous, muscular and skeletal system working to its optimum, the body is better prepared in it’s attempts to right itself.
