About chiropractic

Chiropractic focuses on helping the body’s innate ability to heal, allowing your body to express its full health potential. It is based on the principle that the body is an intelligent, self-healing, organised being.

The body’s control system is the nervous system, made up of the brain, spinal cord, and cranial and peripheral nerves. This is what controls and communicates with all the other systems, telling every cell and organ what to do, and receiving information about what is happening in the body back to the brain.

The spinal cord contains 13 million cells alone that transmit electro-chemical signals to all organs, and our brain contains over 100 billion neuron cells communicating with the body at 320 km/h!

This system is so important it is encased in bone, (skull and spine), and is one of the first systems to develop in a foetus. When your nervous system is interfered with, (a subluxation), information being relayed between the brain and the body and the body and the brain is changed or stopped. This means that the body cannot respond by doing the things that it should to enable full health.

Due to the dynamic nature of the spine, (highly mobile in its supporting and protecting role), it is the most common site for stress and tension causing dysfunction of the nervous system. 

If the brain is where information is processed, then the spinal cord acts as the cable that runs the information to the rest of the body. If any of the nerves or related components are damaged, disrupted, or cannot function properly, it can effect very specific regions of the body, like pain in the shoulders or wrist, or it can be more severe like permanent disability in the legs or internal organs. However, since only 18% of nerve fibres relay pain, 82% are not related to pain, and so it is very possible that you have subluxations in your spine that you are unaware of if they are not involving nerve pain fibres.

Chiropractors work with the body, removing this interference by making adjustments to the spine, (housing the spinal cord). Chiropractors detect and remove areas of spinal dysfunction that are causing irritation, tension or interference to the nervous system. These adjustments trigger the nervous system, which changes the body’s chemistry, physiology and anatomy to restore proper function.

Chiropractors also work with extremity joint problems, (shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees, ankles, hands and feet). When Chiropractic techniques are applied to dysfunctional extremity joints range of motion can be improved and painful inflammation reduced, (without drugs or surgery).

A Chiropractor’s 5 year degree specializes in anatomy, biomechanics, physiology, neurology, radiology and pathology, and there is a growing body of research that supports the health benefits and effectiveness of Chiropractic, but at the end of the day it is the body’s own innate ability to maintain a stable environment, (when there is no interference), that achieves a fully healthy state.

Consequently, Chiropractic is the third largest healthcare profession in the world after medicine and dentistry, and the largest drug-free health care system in the world, - because it works! Studies show that Chiropractic is 100 times safer than “over the counter” medications, and 24,413 times safer than spinal surgery.
