After a careful examination, chiropractors remove these subluxations by applying controlled, direct pressure to the spine. This is called an adjustment. The goal is to reduce muscle tension, improve joint mobility and minimise interference to nerve messages.
Chiropractors don’t use drugs or surgery, which makes chiropractic a natural healthcare option. Chiropractic also isn’t a treatment for a specific condition – it’s a method of improving nerve communication – which helps the body to heal itself and work at its best.
Because chiropractic is all about wellness, many chiropractors advise on nutrition, exercise and lifestyle choices as well.
