What is Chiropractic?

21.07.19 by Thomas Millar

An established method of treatment and prevention

Chiropractors are body mechanics. They diagnose, treat and prevent joint, bone and muscle disorders.

The musculoskeletal system is the largest system in the human body. It’s made up of muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments and cartilage that are coordinated and controlled by the nervous system. Chiropractors specialise in maintaining this system, allowing it to function more effectively and with minimum wear and tear.

People of all ages and backgrounds benefit from chiropractic care

Chiropractic treatment uses gentle spinal ‘adjustments’ to loosen joints that are not moving properly and as a result improves your posture. Benefits of adjustments include more mobility, improved function of everyday movements and reduced pain.

Effective treatment for back pain, migraines and headaches

Chiropractic care is often only associated with neck and back pain. However we consider your overall health and wellbeing. Some of the conditions we successfully treat include:

  • Lower Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Muscle strains
  • Sciatica
  • Arthritic pain
  • Migraines and headaches
  • Sports injuries

“Spinal manipulation is effective in adults for low back pain, migraine, headache and dizziness originating from the neck.  Manipulation is effective for several extremity joint conditions.”

(Effectiveness of manual therapies: the UK evidence report. Bronfort G et al. Chiropractic & Osteopathy 2010; 18 (3); online Feb 25, 2010)

What is a complimentary spinal screening?

Some key postural signals that a Chiropractor looks for during your spine screening:

  • forward head carriage
  • higher/lower shoulders
  • misaligned pelvis
  • scoliosis
  • muscle tension
  • body weight distribution
Essentially a spinal screen will assess your spine for vertebral misalignment, posture abnormalities using an apparatus that gives direct visual feedback of body signals that may warrant further chiropractic investigation. This also gives you an opportunity to speak to the practitioner about your condition and also get to know your potential Chiropractor. Chiropractors look for the underlying cause of your health concern then provide appropriate recommendations for lifestyle alterations and treatment.
