These days, people are required to go the extra mile with their performance, whether that be in the realm of sports, or the game of life. We all put great demands on our bodies, creating structural imbalances or subluxations. Chiropractic is based on the premise that the body is well only when the nervous system is functioning at 100%. In order for this to occur, there must be no interference with the nervous system. Chiropractic focuses on the removal of vertebral subluxations, which occur when a misalignment of the vertebrae puts pressure on a nerve. This sets off a myriad of disorders, such as muscle tension, joint restriction, back ache, arthritic changes and nerve impingement, which can exist with or without any physical symptoms. Doctors of chiropractic restore motion and alignment to these areas with gentle and effective manoeuvres called chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic focuses on the whole person, rather than considering symptoms or injuries in isolation, thus advocating a wellness-orientated system. In addition, chiropractic stresses the importance of a comprehensive prevention strategy, one that incorporates nutrition, exercise and stress reduction.
In conclusion, chiropractic can restore normal movement to enable the body to perform at the optimal level without injury.
