access to a wealth of information for your well-being
In Chiropractic treatment the emphasis is on prevention and adjustment (the chiropractic word for manipulation). Chiropractors use their hands to make specific, safe adjustments to free joints that are not moving properly, and improve nerve and muscle function. Your body’s own healing processes will then be able to continue the task of restoring health. These adjustments concentrate particularly on the spinal joints but can be performed on all the joints of the body. A Chiropractor will also use soft tissue therapies to complement your treatment including deep massage and stretching, ultrasound and acupuncture. “Rehabilitation” exercises are prescribed to restore muscle and joint condition. The treatment is tailored to suit your individual needs, taking into consideration your age, health, and specific condition.
