What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a primary health care profession which is concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and management of a range of musculoskeletal complaints including back, neck and joint pain. Musculoskeletal dysfunction can arise as a result of:

Injury

There are two main types of injuries which can affect the body...

Injury

One is acute and painful and the other is chronic and lingering. The first type is caused by a strong and heavy load or force, leading to sudden failure in structure and function (i.e tearing of a muscle due to a heavy lift or a bone fracture from a fall). The second results from a repetitive or permanent overload, leading to continuously increasing pain and dysfunction (i.e muscle spasm and hardening of the muscle or a repetitive strain type injury)

Lack of exercise

The effect of a lack of exercise on the body…

Lack of exercise

Muscles require activation to maintain their strength, and the same is true of tendons and bones. If there is a lack of activation (lack of exercise), de-conditioning develops, leading to functional and structural deficits. As a result, a muscle is no longer able to stabilize joints and ligamental structures adequately. Joint instabilities and failures, incoordination connected with pain, movement abnormalities & overloading of joints may be the consequence.

Poor posture

The effect of poor posture on the body…

Poor posture

Good posture is a state of skeletal and muscular balance and alignment that protects the supporting structures of the body from progressive dysfunction and injury. In poor, or faulty, posture (aka postural dysfunction), there is an imperfect relationship among various skeletal structures of the body, and this may produce strain on the body’s supporting framework. The longer spent in a position of poor posture, the more likely dysfunction and injury will be.

Illness

The effect of illness and prolonged bed rest on the body…

Illness

It is now well established that extensive periods of bed rest whilst ill or injured can cause harm to the rest of the body. The most obvious effects of long periods of immobility are seen in the musculoskeletal system, with the loss of muscle strength and endurance, and bone weakening. Any muscle weakness or joint and bone stiffness through immobility or disuse has an impact on its functional capacity and may increase the risk of injury.

Emotional stress

The effect of short and long-term stress on the body...

Emotional stress

Short term stress leads to increased muscle tension, which is necessary for the ‘fight or flight’ response (a response designed to protect you from short term danger, such as moving out of the way of a car if it is about to hit you) but long term stress causes the muscles in the body to be in a more or less constant state of guardedness. When muscles are taut and tense for long periods of time, this may trigger other reactions in the body and even promote stress-related disorders.

Everyday wear and tear

The effect of everyday wear and tear on the body…

Everyday wear and tear

Everyday activities such as doing the cleaning, picking the children up, leaning to brush your teeth or carrying the shopping, can put strain onto the musculoskeletal system which can lead to dysfunction or injury, particularly when done with a poor posture. If done repetitively over a period of time this may lead to wear & tear of joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles. Wear and tear occurs as part of the normal ageing process & in some individuals, can lead to pain.

How It Works:

Chiropractic is a safe and effective treatment, which primarily works by restoring normal function to joints, nerves, muscles, tendons and ligaments, allowing them to function at their optimum, which therefore promotes healing and helps to prevent injury.
