HOW DOES CHIROPRACTIC WORK?
An intelligent approach to wellness
The interconnected body
Chiropractic works with the body’s natural healing ability to improve overall health and wellbeing and allow the body to function at its best.
The spine protects the nervous system that connects the brain to the body. The health of this innate process is crucial to everything we do in daily life. A subluxation is a segment of the spine that is not moving or functioning properly, disrupting the sensory information being sent to the brain and affecting our brains ability to accurately sense our internal and external environment and respond appropriately to the needs of our body.
A complex organ that constantly sends and receives messages to and from the body. The brain is so important to our life that it is housed and protected by bone - the skull.Spinal cord
The main highway in our body that carries messages from the brain to the body and from the body to the brain.Nerves
Nerves branch off the spinal cord at different levels and go to every organ and tissue in our body. These nerves carry messages that control every function of our body.Vertebrae
These are our spinal bones, they connect to each other through joints, ligaments and muscles. The vertebrae allow our body to move, whilst also protecting the spinal cord from damage.
