Chiropractic is a science, art and philosophy that focus on the relationship between the nervous system and the function (health) of the body.
Chiropractic doctors locate and correct abnormal spinal and joint movement and positions (termed: subluxation). Subluxation causes interference in the nervous system to the entire body and lead to a wide array of symptoms and conditions. After thorough examination and analysis, chiropractors use carefully controlled and directed pressure to restore proper spinal function and thereby reduce interference to the vital nervous system. This care is handled without drugs or surgery and allows the body’s to heal itself. Chiropractors also recognise the importance of lifestyle factors, nutrition, exercise and patient responsibility on overall health. Over at Live Well, we will advise on these topics to achieve overall wellness. This safe and conservative approach to relief and wellness makes Chiropractic the most popular form of natural health care in the world.
A healthy spine and nervous system, working at its very best, can help anyone at any time in their life; regardless of age, condition, presence or absence of disease, or obvious symptoms.
Chiropractic is not a ‘treatment’ as such for any particular symptom or disease, but rather a method of helping to ensure optimal joint function and nerve communication and is thus able to effectively assist the body in healing.
