What is chiropractic and how can it help?

Centenary Chiropractic Centre

Over 100 years ago, D.D. Palmer (the Founder of Chiropractic) had a "big idea" — that good health can be sustained naturally, without drugs or surgery, through chiropractic care. Today, chiropractic is the second largest licensed health care profession. 

Chiropractors work with and enhance the body's natural ability to heal itself without drugs or surgery. Like all professional health care practitioners, chiropractors follow definite protocols to gain the information to provide you with the best care. They will take your history and conduct physical, orthopaedic and neurological examinations and may order or take X-rays.

What is chiropractic?

Centenary Chiropractic Centre

We know that the nervous system controls the functions of every tissue, organ and system in the body. Chiropractic concerns itself with the relationship between structure (primarily ale spine) and function (primarily coordinated by the nervous system) of the human body, and how that relationship affects the restoration and preservation of health. 

When that relationship is compromised by a spinal bone interfering with your nervous system (a vertebral subluxation), your chiropractor will deliver a spinal adjustment (a specific, precise, corrective force to the offending spinal segment). 

This correction permits normal nerve transmission, enabling the body's innate recuperative power to begin the healing process. It is said that the body needs no help or interference in looking after itself.

 Engaging the Pelvic Floor

Engaging the Pelvic Floor

Tuesday, June 21, 2022

The pelvic floor is made up of a group of muscles that runs from the pubic bone at the front and the coccyx (tailbone) at the back. On each side, these muscles attach to the ischial tuberosities – bones you can feel if you place your hand underneath your buttocks when sitting. 

Much has been said about the importance of these muscles in women, especially after giving birth. However, this group also plays a role in core stability and are therefore considered important for both men and women.  

In both sexes, the pelvic floor supports the bladder and bowel, and in women, it also supports the vagina and uterus. 

A weakness in the floor of the pelvis can result from: 

  • Inactivity 
  • Following pregnancy 
  • Chronic constipation 
  • Chronic coughing – such as ‘smoker’s cough’ 
  • Heavy lifting 
  • The aging process

The result of weakness can lead to pelvic and low back pain, sexual dysfunction and stress incontinence – wetting yourself when you laugh, cough or sneeze. 

Finding your pelvic floor 

You can find your pelvic floor muscles by assuming a relaxed posture – either sitting, standing or lying down. Squeeze the ring of muscle around your back passage as though you were trying to stop passing wind. Then relax and repeat a few times. Be sure you do not contract you buttock muscles and keep your thighs and shoulders relaxed. You should feel a distinct ‘squeeze and lift’ of your pelvic floor. 

Exercising your pelvic floor 

Once you have found the pelvic floor, exercising is simply a matter of holding the contraction. This is best done when time with slow breathing. Assume a comfortable position – lying down on your back with knees bent. Relax the body as you gently breathe in. slowly breathe out and at the same time contract the pelvic floor. Repeat 10 times. Try this exercise in different body positions such as sitting or standing with relaxed upright posture.
