What is Chiropractic Care

Image

Chiropractic is focussed on examining and looking at nerve interference. Usually, you will experience your chiropractor pushing or moving bones and muscles. This is because they may be in the way of the nerves and hence need repositioning. So, the corrections are to always restore nerve function by making your joints and muscles work at their optimum.

The procedure of care is a specific movement to a joint or muscle to improve the function of the joint restrictions. Some people experience immediate relief and other chronic conditions take a little time to normalise the area, much like braces on teeth. Like orthodontics for teeth, chiropractic care is designed to help restore proper position and motion of spinal joints. In the beginning, frequent visits are usually needed to relieve symptoms and begin the healing process.

What is an Adjustment?

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 women, an elite footballer and a baby will obviously require very different approaches.
