WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC
is a newly emerging health profession in Italy. It has been a treatment of choice for over 100 years by people in America and Australia. Chiropractic helps people of all ages with a variety of health issues. It’s a holistic therapy that provides a non-invasive, drug-free and non-surgical approach to healthcare; helping the body to naturally heal itself. Chiropractors are proficient at diagnosing, treating and preventing dysfunction of the musculoskeletal and nervous system. The nervous system is in charge of how your body functions. It senses changes in your environment and causes your body to adapt. Without a well-functioning nervous system your brain and your body cannot communicate properly and the body will deteriorate. Your spine and extremities’ (feet, arms, legs, hands etc.) provide large amounts of information to your brain about what is happening in the body. Chiropractic
treatment will find and correct problems in your body that interfere with this communication. Once the body is restored using Chiropractic treatment you will feel alive, happier and pain-free. Chiropractors are highly trained health practioners with a minimum of 5 years tertiary education. They are specialised in anatomy, diagnosis, soft-tissue therapy, the nervous system, exercise regimes, manual adjustment and therapeutic techniques. People generally visit Chiropractors for maintaining good health. However Chiropractic can help to naturally improve problems such as sporting injuries, neck and back pain, arthritis, headaches, sciatica, child growing pains, insomnia and poor posture. Just about anything you can think of. The chiropractic adjustment is when the chiropractor will use their hands to apply a small amount of pressure and force to a joint. Your body will be placed in different positions on the table to allow for the target areas to be treated. It corrects the structural alignment of the body by fixing things that are out of place. The overall purpose is to improve your body’s physical and mental function.
