Practitioner Offering Chiropractic
Chiropractic works on the theory that the nervous system is involved with all of the body's functions including our defence against any disease. Electrical impulses travel around the body through nerve fibres, but these suffer interference when bones that have come out of alignment then rub against the nerve. This causes pain and possible long term disease.
A chiropractor aims to treat those affected bones, muscles and joints of the body (particularly in the spinal region) against their effects on the nervous system. A properly functioning system then leads to good health.
A chiropractor will manipulate joints and the spine using their hands, making specific adjustments to realign bones and joints, this then aids the nervous system and allows our natural healing process to take place. Chiropractic therapy does not use surgery or drugs alongside the treatment but does promote good nutrition and exercise to aid recovery.
