    how does your body work?

    Your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. These important functions are controlled by your brain and spinal cord via your body's complex nervous system. Your brain and nerves continuously monitor and co-ordinate everything that is happening in your body. 
    The skull protects your brain. The moving bones of your spine protect the spinal cord and nerve roots. A lack of movement or abnormal movement of the spinal joints may interfere with the normal function of your nervous system, musculoskeletal system and other bodily functions.

    What is an adjustment?

    A chiropractic adjustment is the skilled use of delivering a specific force in a precise direction, to a joint that is stuck, or not moving correctly. This adds motion to the joint, helping to gradually restore normal function. The purpose of this safe and natural procedure is to permit improved spinal function, improved nervous system function, and consequently, improved health. There are many ways to adjust the spine. Chiropractors may use their hands; or have the aid of special adjusting tables; or have you lie on pelvic blocks; or use specialised hand held instruments. Which technique is chosen is dependent on your individual circumstances - an elderly woman, an elite footballer and a baby will obviously require very different approaches. After 5 years of university training and clinical experience and ongoing education to remain registered as a chiropractor year to year, each chiropractor becomes highly skilled in the delivery of a variety of adjusting approaches. 

    chiropractic clinic neck pain

    Neck pain

    As one of the most common problems treated by chiropractors, neck pain ranges in severity and can also lead to headaches. When the vertebrae in your neck become stiff, they can get inflamed and irritate surrounding nerves.

    As these nerves are connected to the spine, you may also experience pain in the shoulders, back or arms, as well as muscle tension in the neck.

    Chiropractors can identify the injured vertebrae, and neurological examinations can pinpoint any trapped nerves.

    The treatment usually involves the application of gentle, specific massaging of the neck, as well as advice regarding correct posture when working and relaxing.

    Migraines and headaches

    Migraines are localised headaches that arise from tension in the body, and are often associated with light sensitivity. They can even cause vomiting in extreme cases. During a classic migraine, the headache starts in one area and spreads to that whole side of the head.

    An occipital-orbital migraine involves pain running from the back to the front of the head, and an orbital migraine manifests as a stabbing pain behind the eye.

    Childhood migraines, cluster headaches, exertion headaches and migraines with vertigo can also occur. Poor posture and stress can be a root cause, as well as bright lights and over-exercising.

    Sleep often helps, and chiropractic care can alleviate tension in the muscles and manage headaches without medication.

    Sciatica

    If you have pain that travels down one side of your body, from the leg to toes, then chiropractic care can help.

    The pain may be caused by a slipped disc, although there are various other reasons as to why it may occur.

    Symptoms include numbness in the leg and feet, or shooting pains. The pressure on your sciatic nerve can be alleviated through chiropractic care, as backed up by research in the British Medical Journal.
