Improving mobility, vitality, endurance and appetite
Chiropractic is a health care discipline based on the scientific premise that the body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. These important functions are controlled by the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body. “Chiropractic” comes from the Greek word Chiropraktikos, meaning “done by hand.”
Focusing on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine, and pelvis) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health, many studies have shown that chiropractic patients experience overall increased bodily function from a wide age range.
The skull protects the delicate tissues of the brain. The moving bones of the spine protect the intricate communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots. If these nervous system pathways are impaired, malfunction of the tissues and organ malfunction throughout the body can result.
Chiropractic also places an emphasis on nutrition, exercise, wellness and healthy lifestyle modifications. Adjustments can free your immune system up to focus on keeping you healthy, which enhances your ability to think, move and perform.
In Australia, Chiropractors are registered health care practitioners and complete a 5 year University based program.
Chiropractic is safe and effective natural health care for the whole family.
