What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that focuses on the function of the spine and the nervous system.
The nervous system (brain, spinal cord and nerves) controls and coordinates all the functions of the body. The spine protects the spinal cord whilst being flexible enough to allow us to move freely.
Any type of stress on the body, whether it is physical, chemical or emotional, can cause the vertebrae (spinal bones) to lock up and lose their free movement. When this happens it can cause nerve irritation which may lead to an interference in the communication between the brain and the body. Chiropractors call this problem a subluxation.
Subluxations affect the function of the body, some times resulting in noticeable symptoms. However they may not always cause specific symptoms, instead they may lower the overall performance of your body.
Our Chiropractors Drs. Lynnette and Aimee correct these spinal problems by hand, and with varying techniques they can help anyone from newborn babies to the elderly improve the performance of their body naturally.
The results experienced from chiropractic are different for everyone as we are all individuals.
The New Zealand government’s “Commission of Inquiry into Chiropractic” concluded that, “Spinal adjusting is a vital, very safe and clinically effective form of healthcare. Chiropractors have more through training in spinal mechanics and spinal care than any other health profession. Furthermore, Chiropractic is scientifically-based.”
