What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic is a safe, natural and effective approach to improving your health. Chiropractic is known throughout the world and is the third largest primary health care profession after medicine and dentistry. It is the largest natural health care discipline in the United Kingdom and requires a minimum of 4 years University study. Chiropractors in the UK are regulated by the General Chiropractic Council.
Chiropractors are Spinal Health Experts.
Chiropractic leads the way in an approach to healthcare that focuses on assisting you to improve your health and to express your optimal well-being, through non-invasive, hands on and drug free approach. It is suitable for all ages, from new born to the elderly and for a wide variety of conditions and symptoms.
Fundamental to Chiropractic is the understanding that your body has the ability to heal itself and that good health depends upon your nervous system functioning at its best.
You....feel, think, respond, express, hear, see, taste, touch, smell, act, move, digest, sleep, understand and much more...all through your nervous system.
By far the most common complaints that chiropractors treat involve the spinal column - low back pain and most types of neck pain, though they are equally specialists in the treatment of any area in the body which has a nerve supply, such as shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, ankle and cranium. Even the organs of the body…
Chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine, and pelvis) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how this relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.
Chiropractic also places an emphasis on nutrition and exercise, wellness* and healthy lifestyle modifications.
With a fully functioning nervous system the body can heal itself!
