Three things you need to know about chiropractic
Chiropractic is about maximising your health and human potential
Chiropractic is about maximising your health and human potential. Here at The Back Clinic we love to educate and excite you about your human potential. We really are capable of so much - often we just need a helping hand every now and then. Our chiropractors are fortunate enough to help the community and often witness just how chiropractic can change people’s lives.
Please read on as we discuss our top three considerations for chiropractic as a primary form of healthcare.
1) Your Spine and Nervous System
In order to truly understand the scientific premise behind chiropractic, your spine and nervous system need to be considered.
Your nervous system controls and coordinates every function in your body through vital nerve impulses, flowing from your brain to your body and vice versa. It’s responsible for all the functioning, healing and regenerating that happens in your body. Your current level of health is related to how well your nervous system is performing. When you have a healthy nervous system, you are better able to adapt to the challenges of life.
Your spine is designed to protect your nervous system and your spinal cord. It allows you to stand up right, to move and be flexible - all in one structure...this is truly amazing! The spine encapsulates the central part of the nervous system, the control centre of the body.
Problems can arise when stress and pressure interfere with the normal functioning of your nervous system. Chiropractors commonly refer to this under the broad term of subluxation.
2) The Problem: Subluxation
Stress factors - in the form of physical, chemical and mental/emotional changes in your environment - create stress in your body, affecting your posture and spine and contribute to the state of Subluxation.
Subluxation results when your spine moves out of its optimal, healthy alignment. This places pressure - or stress - on your nervous system.
The result? A potentially harmful interruption of the nerve impulses that run your entire body, contributing to many of the unwanted health challenges that people battle with everyday: back pain, neck pain and headaches can be attributed to Subluxation.
3) The Solution: The Chiropractic Adjustment
An adjustment is the only treatment modality that works to address subluxation. Your chiropractor will recommend a scheduled adjustment plan prescribed at a specific frequency tailored to you. Your recommendations are based on:
- Your current level of health and body symptoms
- X-ray and posture analysis
- The demands of your current lifestyle
- Your age
- The habits in your lifestyle – both good and bad
- Your ability vs. inability to do the things you want and need to be doing in your life
Generally speaking, chiropractic aims to increase movement along your spine, free up locked joints and decrease feelings of pain and discomfort. Chiropractic adjustments can be used to help health challenges such as back pain, headaches and sporting injuries.
Your body heals in rhythm, so keep your adjusting rhythm, and stick to the plan
The Back Clinic exists to provide professional, friendly and all-natural chiropractic care to the wider community. Chiropractic is a primary form of healthcare that helps you maximise your health and human potential.
