What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a health care discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs and surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.
What is a Vertebral Subluxation?
The human body possesses a natural ability to restore itself. This ability depends on a healthy nervous system. Life’s events such as automobile accidents, sports injuries, repetitive work and stress are just some of the factors that can overwhelm the body’s ability to adapt. The joints of the spine “lock up” when these sorts of events occur, limiting range of motion. Spinal joint restriction and/or misalignment results in irritation and often pressure at the spinal cord. Wanneroo Chiropractic care can correct these structural distortions, known as subluxations
Local symptoms of subluxations may include pain, tenderness, swelling, tingling, numbness, and/or spasm around the joints of the spine, back and neck. Many times these sensations extend further into the shoulders and arms, around the rib cage, or into the hips and down the legs. Subluxations can even lead to headaches, stomach and digestive problems and loss of overall health.
How does chiropractic work?
Chiropractic care can correct these structural distortions known as subluxations, restoring the body to its optimal form and function. Impaired nerve coordination causes the whole body to suffer. Vital instructions flow between the brain and the body by way of spinal nerves. These instructions inform and direct the body as to when, where and how it needs to heal itself. By irritating nerves, subluxations interfere with the essential brain/ body exchange, thereby compromising the normal function of the body’s organs and tissues. Our Wanneroo chiropractic will help you get the relief you need in a natural and safe way as it should be. A Chiropractor’s can use different techniques to clear the path for the body to maintain its own health.
How a chiropractor can help you?
Chiropractic offers natural relief of chronic pain, headaches, disc disorders and personal injury cases. Chiropractors help newborns, infants, teenagers, adults and seniors. Because chiropractic treatments are primarily applied to the spinal region, many individuals incorrectly assume that chiropractors treat only back and neck ailments. While we do quickly and effectively eliminate back and neck pain, it’s not the only goal. The objective is to restore and optimize human health. You may be wondering… how can the same chiropractic treatment which effectively treats my back pain also optimize my health? The answer can be found by looking into the relationship between the spine and the nervous system. As you may already know, the nervous system is the master controller of all living cells, tissues and organs; orchestrating and coordinating all cellular functions. The spinal column encases the nervous system (spinal cord and nerve roots) and is responsible for its protection. In short, because the body’s innate recuperative powers are affected by and integrated through the nervous system, correcting spinal abnormalities which irritate the nervous system can lead to a number of favourable results in patients suffering from various, seemingly non-spinal health conditions.
