The trauma of life begins at birth, when we are plucked from a nice, warm cosy environment, probably by forceps, or even Caesarean section, into a stark birthing suite, with bright lights, noise, bell and whistles.

When we start to crawl and walk, nappies make for good cushioning as we begin to experience recurrent micro trauma when we fall on our backsides while attempting to stand and walk. We continue to grow and knocks and bumps, falls and trips keeping adding to the micro trauma. Adolescence and adulthood sees micro traumas continue through carrying school bags, constantly using computer mouses, texting on mobile phones, playing sports, and in the case of tradesman, the use of hammers, screwdrivers and other tools.

These mini traumatic events compound and eventually, problems result. Subluxations occur which in turn put pressure on joints, nerves and muscles.

It is these cumulative minor or ‘insidious’ injuries that can lead to chronic, debilitating problems. Little niggles that you thought would go away now become significant issues.

It is important to not allow those little issues go unnoticed and unattended. Early chiropractic assessment and adjustment may be able to make these issues redundant.
