“Your health is the investment of a lifetime.” Dr. Matt
Chiropractic care is simple. It enables you to claim your body’s natural healing potential, it can also help you perform at the highest level in every area of your life; here is how it works…
There are nine major systems in the body –> each of these exists to help and support you. The nervous-system is the one that controls and coordinates the other eight. This is absolutely critical & vital to your body’s function and in the long run your health & longevity.
Our Care is gentle, simple & most importantly effective. This is priority for our team as we want you to feel at home & we want you to see results.
We specialise in understanding the process (YES IT IS A PROCESS – Like LIFE; there are no quick fixes) involved to help you to restore true body health & function –> not just a temporary fix that will cost you more in the long run.
Our techniques are all selected to provide safety and comprehensive analysis with the aim of gentleness so as to assist your body and not casue disruption.
We use Spinal adjustments because of the direct relationship your spine has to its nervous-system. These adjustments effectively RESTORE spinal function & in turn this RE-Establishes a stronger connection & healing order to the body.
History of chiropractic treatment
Spinal alignment has been used as a healing technique for thousands of years, but the modern version was developed in the late 19th century. Chiropractic is recognised as a genuine health care approach and many published research studies demonstrate it is effective for people with a range of health, spinal and other problems (emotional & nutrtional imbalances).
A range of disorders
Scientific studies have shown chiropractic can be helpful to assist with a range of disorders, including:
- Structural concerns
- Shooting or constant back pain
- Period pain
- Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
- Digestive concerns
- Emotional & Anxiety & stress dis-orders
In fact the Chiropractic profession was founded on a story of a deaf man recovering his hearing ! It had very little to do with the just back problems.
The spine and spinal cord
You have 31 pairs of spinal nerves and 24 bones in the spine (on average). This including your brain & brainstem is like the central computer of your body. If they are clearly connected –> your body is able to maintain strength throughout periods of stress & ultimately help you to maintain & progress with your health.
Why adjustment & not manipulation?
A Chiropractic Adjustment is very specific. Adjustments are used to enhance & connect with the body’s own natural healing abilites; they are not designed to correct & control the body. Simply said; a chiropractic adjustment aims to restore the body’s nerovus-system to its optimal connection & function. The outcome being a body which is stronger and functioning more fully as a team or unit. The result is that you get stronger and healthier.
If you have specific health conditions or other issues, the chiropractor will take them into account when deciding on your care. These assessments help the chiropractor to evaluate any special needs you may have and to ensure your safety and comfort during the process. These issues may include:
- Whether you have signs of or diagnosed arthritis
- Any suspected or recent fractures, bone breaks or trauma
- Disorders of the circulation
- Whether you are, or have recently been, pregnant
- Your body size
- Your age – whether you are young, elderly or frail
- The medication that you are taking
- Previous treatment, including operations.
Chiropractic and children
Chiropractic care for pregnant women, nursing mothers, babies and children is offered by chiropractors with special training in this field. Chiropractic care about the neck is not suitable in children with Down syndrome and some other conditions. The youngest person we have ever cared for was just 8 days old. Techniques for individuals this young are specialised & adapted to provide safety & effectiveness. Examples & reasons for children to be with chiropractic care:
- constantly sick – immunosurpression
- constantly crying – lack of nervous-system harmony – stressed nervous-system (the regulation system of the body)
- Hip concerns
- not sleeping – lack of nervous-system harmony – stressed nervous-system (the regulation system of the body)
