What is chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a drug-free, non-surgical approach to healing and wellness. Chiropractic restores health and prevents injury by improving the structural integrity of the body, primarily the spine. The brain communicates with the rest of the body via the spinal cord and nervous system. When functioning perfectly, this communication is uninterrupted, and the messages go to and from the brain without interference.
Addressing the root of the problem
The nervous system is the body's wiring. If there's something wrong with the wiring, the signal does not reach the intended body part, and this may result in symptoms of pain and discomfort. Interference of this kind may be manifested anywhere along your spine. Pain in your arm or hand may actually be caused by a problem in your neck, where the nerves connecting to the hand originate. Treatment consists of a wide range of techniques to improve the function and motion of the joints of the spine and skeleton to relieve pain and muscle spasm.
Joint problems and pain can occur for many reasons, including incorrect lifting, car and sporting accidents,falls, childbirth, stress and poor posture.
