Chiropractors are trained to deliver treatment and diagnosis of neuro-musculoskeletal disorders (bones, joints, and muscles), as well as the effects these disorders can have on the nervous system and our general health. Chiropractors have a specialist interest in neck and back pain, however when they fully assess patients, they take a holistic approach and consider the individuals entire physical, emotional and social well being into account.
Chiropractors use a variety of techniques to reduce pain, improve function and increase mobility, including hands-on adjustments to the spine. Treatment involves gentle, safe and specific adjustments which free joints within the body that are not moving properly. The chiropractor will narrow down the precise points in your body where mechanical stress is taking place and use adjustment techniques to release it. However, your chiropractor will only adjust your body in areas where the body is unable to correct itself.
