What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a primary health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system and the effects these disorders can have on our general health.
The word Chiropractor means 'to do by hand'. It was founded over 100 years ago in the United States and is known to be a natural, safe and effective way to improve our overall body function and health. It is based on the scientific fact that the human body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism, which given the right environment, has the ability to be healthy and function optimally.
Why do we care so much about the Spine?
Our brains send and receive signals via our spinal cord and nerves to control and monitor every function of our bodies, from synchronised muscle movements and our sense of touch to the functioning of our organs. The vertebrae in our spinal column protect this signal pathway and support the weight of our bodies throughout every movement we make.
As we go about our daily lives, our vertebrae encounter all sorts of stresses, from simple things like sitting and walking to more strenuous activities like lifting and bending. These stresses can sometimes cause our vertebrae to move incorrectly, which can cause impairment of our nervous system and disrupt the pathways our brain so heavily relies upon to maintain our health. It can cause changes in the body’s cells, tissues and organs. It can also cause us to feel pain but this is not always the case.
How Does Chiropractic Treatment Help?
At Chiropractic Synergy we focus on improving your body’s nervous system by assessing and improving spinal function with very specific chiropractic adjustments. These adjustments are designed to move the joint and correct any misalignment that may be present. This generally results in improved messages being relayed back and forth to the brain and body, with a decrease in pain and improved health.
Chiropractors at Chiropractic Synergy have additional skill sets and training to help manage, treat and prevent many sports injuries.
Dry needling, rigid and Kinesio taping are some of the modalities that can be implemented.
Chiropractic can be very beneficial for many womens health issues. Preparing for pregnancy, recovering from childbirth, pain during the menstrual period, PMS, hormonal headaches and chronic pelvic pain are among some of the conditions which disturb the otherwise healthy lives of many women.
Chiropractic and Pregnancy:
Our Chiropractors are passionate about women’s health and helping the body cope with the additional stressors placed on a mother’s body during all stages of pregnancy. Chiropractic adjustments support a well-balanced nervous system by gently aligning the pelvis and spine, which often leads to increased comfort and well-being.
We are a family-centred practice and assess children from newborns to teenagers. Our techniques are safe, gentle and adapted to each child’s needs, size, age and developmental stage. Chiropractic care can help kids thrive throughout all the bumps and knocks of childhood, helping maintain a healthy neuro-muscular system.
