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.

 Reducing the Risk of Chronic Low Back Pain

Reducing the Risk of Chronic Low Back Pain

Monday, August 15, 2022

It is estimated that 80% of people in the Western World will experience a significant bout of low back pain (LBP) at some stage in their lives for a period of two weeks or longer. So regardless of the risks most of us will come to understand what having LBP is all about. 

Chronic LBP will last much longer and may range from very mild to debilitating. There are various risk factors that increase the likelihood of chronic LBP. 

Risk factors that you cannot change include: 

  • Being middle-aged or older 
  • Being male  
  • Having a family history of back pain 
  • Having had a previous back injury 
  • Being pregnant – a woman’s back is significantly stressed by carrying a baby 
  • Having spine problems since birth (congenital spine problems) 

Risk factors that you can change with lifestyle changes or chiropractic care include: 

  • Lack of exercise 
  • Smoking 
  • Frequent long periods of sitting, lifting heavy objects, bending or twisting, repetitive motions, or constant vibration (such as using a jackhammer) 
  • Being overweight. This may be related to increased load on the spine or due to general lack of muscular conditioning 
  • Having poor posture. For every 2-3cm the head moves forward, doubles the load on the cervical spine (neck) 
  • Being under stress. Stress and other emotional factors are believed to play a major role in low back pain, particularly chronic low back pain. Many people unconsciously tighten their back muscles when they are under stress. 
  • Depression – especially if you are unhappy in your work environment 
  • Using medicines long-term that weakens bones, such as corticosteroids
