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.

It’s more than just lower back pain

It’s more than just lower back pain

Monday, March 16, 2020

Chiropractic patients often experience unexpected improvements in many aspects of their health after commencing treatment. Patients who have received chiropractc adjustments over a period of time will often claim they feel more relaxed, have more energy or a greater sense of wellbeing.

Although a patient may first consult a chiropractor for a particular compaint, such as lower back pain, other areas of their health may improve along the road to recovery.

Part of the reason for this is because co-morbidity (associated health problems) is common with lower back pain.

One Norwegian study looked at this trend by examing 457 patients sick-listed for 8 to 12 weeks because of lower back pain. All subjects filled out questionnaires. The subjective health compaints in the study group were compared with those in a normal Norwegian population.

Compared to the normal population, the study group not only had more lower back pain, but also had more neck pain, upper back pain, pain in the feet during exercise, headache, migraine, sleep problems, flushes/heat sensations, anxiety, and sadness/depression. The prevalence of pain in arms and shoulders, plus tiredness, was also high.

The researchers concluded that patients with lower back pain suffer from what may be referred to as a ‘syndrom,’ consisting of muscle pain affecting the whole spine as well as the legs and gead, with accompanying sleep problems, anxiety, and sadness/depression. With treatment, improvemnet in many aspects of the patient’s health can therefore be expected.

Chiropractors explain this phenomenon as being due to the spin’s relationship with nervous system. The spinal cord, protected by the spine, connects the brain with the body and is responsible for maintaining health and order in the body. When the spine is out of balance (subluxated) due to injury, poor posture or other causes, transmission of nerve messages can become distorted. This may have a spill-over effect to other areas of the body and maifest as a wide variety of symptoms.
