The term Chiropractic is derived from Greek and means treatment by hand or manipulation. Chiropractic offers hands on pain management for all ages. It can help with a wide range of problems from head to toe.
Chiropractors specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the spine, nerves, joints and muscles. Treatment comprises of highly skilled and specific adjustments or manipulations of the spine and joints where restrictions in movement are found. It can also involve working on muscles, joints and nerves allowing the body to recover.
The central nervous system controls every cell, tissue, organ and cell. The nerve exits between the spinal bones and improper movement of the joints can cause irritation of the nerves. The Chiropractor will adjust the spine in order to improve the mobility of the joints. X-rays and MRI scans are sometimes used as a diagnostic tool.
