What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic focuses on the spine and nervous system. By removing stresses in our spine we reduce symptoms and improve health and wellbeing! At FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Berwick we know that the spine and nervous system have a direct relationship. This is because our nerves control EVERY single cell of our body, and any ‘stress’ in our spine can affect the health and wellbeing of our nerves, causing pain, symptoms and ill health.
Chiropractic helps the body function the way it was designed! What do we mean by that? Well, with our nerves controlling all the natural automatic functions that our body performs without us giving it a second thought such as breathing, pumping blood, digesting food etc, restoring function to these nerves means our body can function at it’s best. Interrupted nerve function can cause a multitude of symptoms including pain, numbness, tingling, vertigo, headaches, back pain/sciatica, constipation, irritable bowel…just to name a few!
Any type of situation, whether it be a traumatic injury such as whiplash in a car accident, wear and tear over many years, or any other stress such as postural stress from hours in front of a computer, can cause the nervous system to stop working at its optimum capacity. Chiropractic RESTORES the function of the spine and nervous system, therefore reducing our symptoms but also improving the overall function of your body and improving our health.
What is a ‘subluxation’?
A subluxation is a misalignment of the bones that house and protect the spinal cord. Any misalignment puts unnecessary pressure on the nerve system and damages the nerve supply to different parts of the body. Vertebral subluxations that are left undetected and unadjusted for many years can lead to symptoms of pain, diseases, and an unhealthy expression of life.
What is an adjustment?
An adjustment is the term used to explain the chiropractic treatment. It is known in the medical community as spinal manipulation, although the chiropractic adjustment is performed specifically by chiropractors with at least five years of extensive experience in this type of treatment.
How do I know when I am subluxated?
It’s not easy to know when you are subluxated, although a pain of some kind can be a clue. Abnormal posture including one shoulder higher than the other, hips not level or a head forward past the shoulders can also be indicative of a subluxation. Often, the nerves that are negatively affected because of the misalignment in the spine do not carry pain signals. This means that you can suffer from subluxations for years without any painful warning signs.
However, allowing subluxations to exist in your body can negatively impact the functions of the organs in your body, which leads to a deterioration of your health. A chiropractor can detect the subluxations with their highly trained hands, and correct them effectively.
