FAQ

Frequently asked question.

What does Chiropractic care involve?

A healthy spine is essential for proper movement, ideal posture and a healthy nervous system. When spinal joints don’t move properly, it can not only effect the tissues of the joint (muscles, ligaments and disc) to malfunction and breakdown but also create irritation and change to the delicate nerve tissue inside the spinal bones. Chiropractic involves detecting areas of the spine that don’t move properly and using a variety of techniques, slowly return the joint to a more normal range of movement.

 

What is an adjustment?

An adjustment is what chiropractors use to improve the movement pattern of a misaligned spinal joint. This may be done by hand, the use of a special mechanised table, called a drop piece table or using a spring-loaded instrument, called an activiator. The Chiropractic techniques used is always matched to the individual in regards to their age, state of spinal health and their specific health goals.

What causes my spinal joints to stop moving properly?

Our bodies are designed to adapt to the daily stresses we place on it. Our posture when we stand, sit or lie down, the work we do, sports we play, our dietary choices, level or rest and sleep and our stress levels, can sometimes over-burden our bodies so that they no longer adapt, instead causing joints to become stuck or develop abnormal movement patterns.

How do I know I have misaligned spinal joints?

Symptoms are often the only way for the body to know something is wrong. However, only around 10% of your nervous system perceives pain. Compression or stretching of nerve tissue may result in decreased nerve function without only detectable symptoms. Therefore by the time you experience any symptoms, the spinal problems may have been present for months, even years!

Signs that may indicate the presence of misaligned spinal joints include;

– uneven or altered posture 

– uneven muscle tone, inducing tension 

– changes in normal joint motion and flexibility

– headaches or migraines

– changes in walking and running

– issues with balance

– pins and needles and numbness

– neck and low back pain

– uneven hips or shoulders

Is Chiropractic safe?

As a profession, chiropractic has a very enviable health safety record. 

Because it doesn’t involve the use of any drugs (which may produce side effects, or invasive techniques such as surgery) it is considered a safe first choice physical therapy. 

In regards to the treatment of infants and children, a review by Dr. Angela Todd shows that when compared to other modalities, chiropractic care for children and infants is safe, gentle and effective.
