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.

Neck pain? Could it be Torticollis?

Neck pain? Could it be Torticollis?

Tuesday, February 15, 2022 Neck pain

Have you got neck pain? It could be Torticollis. Torticollis is a deformity of the neck that causes pain and makes your head twist to one side.

Torticollis is a condition that can come from different causes. There are many different ways it can show up, depending on the age of the person and what caused it. There are many outcomes.

The most common form of torticollis is Acute Torticollis. This mostly happens with older children and young adults. The pain and muscle spasm usually lasts 3-10 days. The person might have some minor trauma, like twisting their neck while drying their hair or jarring their neck when they hit the ball on the tennis

Chiropractic care can help if your muscles are hurting. It may reduce pain and help you get better faster. This is because chiropractors do gentle spinal adjustments to the back bones, soft tissue techniques for muscle spasms at the front or back of your neck, or slow holding adjustments on the cranium (skull).

You will often hear advice about resting and doing gentle exercises for your neck and shoulders. These exercises should be comfortable, and you can try alternating heat and ice. Often it is helpful to support your neck with a scarf or soft cervical collar.

Congenital torticollis in Infants

Congenital torticollis is a form of torticollis that is present at birth. This type of torticollis is usually caused by birth trauma, which can be the result of a breech birth or when forceps are used. The muscle at the front and side of the neck was damaged, causing bleeding inside the muscle and shortening of the muscle.

After these babies are born, they can have a hip dislocation. Sometimes they need an x-ray in the neck and hips.

Treatment is very important for these infants to prevent their neck muscles from getting shorter. They may also have facial and skull asymmetry, which is common in babies with torticollis.

Chiropractic care may involve gentle massages and stretches to the SCM muscles. You may also need very light finger-tip adjustments to the neck, as well as craniosacral adjustments to balance Dural tension. In some cases, it may take months for neck posture and movement to return to normal.

Spasmodic Torticollis in Adults

This is a more serious form of torticollis and is also called cervical dystonia. This typically affects adults between the ages of 30-50 years, and it happens when there is a problem with the nervous system in the brain.

This is a hard condition to treat. It can be associated with chronic pain and muscle tremors. Spasmodic torticollis can last for a long time and sometimes it is permanent. Sometimes people need both chiropractic care and medical care.
