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.

 Getting It Straight

Getting It Straight

Tuesday, September 27, 2022

Sit up straight! This common request may have been how you first heard about posture, the way you hold your body. Posture isn’t just about how you look. How you position yourself can help or hurt your health over your lifetime. 

Posture is not only about how well you sit, but how well you move and go about your daily life. How you hold yourself when you’re not moving – such as when you’re sitting, standing, or sleeping – is called static posture. Dynamic posture is how you position your body while you’re moving, like walking or bending over to pick something up. It’s important to consider both static and dynamic components of posture. 

Posture can be affected by many things:  

  • Your age 
  • The situations you find yourself in 
  • Your daily choices 

For instances, children may have to adjust to carry heavy backpacks to school and pregnant women move differently to accommodate growing babies. 

Your posture involves your musculoskeletal system. This includes your bones, muscles, joints, and other tissues that connect the parts of your body together. It’s what provides form, support, stability, and movement to your body. How you hold yourself can either align or misalign your musculoskeletal system. Throughout life, this system must adapt to the type of work you do, the hobbies you enjoy, how you use electronic devices, injuries and even the kind of shoes you wear. 

You may think that sitting with slumped shoulders or bending at your back instead of your knees sometimes won’t hurt you. But small changes in how you hold yourself and move can add up over a lifetime. Years of slouching wears away at your spine to make it more fragile and prone to injury. Holding your body and moving in unhealthy ways often leads to neck, shoulder and back pain. Around 1 in 6 Australians have back pain each year. Most are of working age and an equal number of women and men are affected. 

Poor posture can also decrease your flexibility, how well your joints move, and your balance. It can impact your ability to do things for yourself and increase your risk for falls. Slumped posture can even make it more difficult to digest the food you eat and breathe comfortably. 

It’s never too early or late in life to work on improving your posture and how you move. One way to improve your posture is to be aware of it in the first place: 

  • Be mindful of your posture and how you’re moving 
  • Think about lifting your head, pulling your shoulders back and tightening your abdominal muscles in everyday situations 
  • Be aware of repetitive postures like regularly lifting heavy objects and holding positions for a long time like sitting at computer all day at work 

The foundation of good posture is having a body that can support it. This means having strong abdominal and back muscles, flexibility and a balanced body over your life. 

It’s easy to develop suboptimal movement patterns after an injury or from years of pain, but you can learn to distribute your weight evenly and balance your bodies again. 

Talk to your chiropractor about your posture. They can give you feedback on how you’re moving, help you avoid unhealthy movement patterns, and work with you to create a plan that’s best for you.
