Chiropractic is a safe, natural, drug free approach to health. The function of your spine can influence the way your brain perceives what’s going on in our body. Chiropractic care restores the health and function of your spine thereby improving the communication between your brain your body and the environment. If your brain can accurately perceive what is going on it can control your body better.
Chiropractors check for areas in the spine where joints may not be moving or functioning normally. These joints may be ‘jammed’, ‘irritating’ or sometimes ‘pinching’ the nerves. This is called a ‘subluxation’ and it interferes with normal brain function. If some spinal segments are moving abnormally, this can cause background noise for the brain or the brain may not get adequate information about what is happening in the spine and body.
Research show that chiropractic care can improve your brains ability to know where your arm or foot is when your close your eyes and it can change the way your brain sends specific messages to your muscles. We also know it can improve lower limb muscle strength and prevent your muscles getting tired from repetitive contractions.
A chiropractor gently and precisely adjusts dysfunctional spinal segments to restore appropriate spinal movement. For the brain this is like rebooting a computer. Clear communication between the brain and the body is re-established leading to better function, less accidents and a healthier you.
