Adjusting the Subluxated Spine Changes Brain Function

October 20, 2016 Chiro Care

We do know that spinal function does affect brain function. There’s now solid evidence that adjusting the spine changes brain function by almost 20%, possibly in the prefrontal cortex. Such a finding could explain many of the previous findings of chiropractic’s effects.

Pelvic Floor Control

September 19, 2016 Chiro Care

This is big news for women and for chiropractors alike! A recent study has proven that chiropractic care can have an impact on pelvic floor muscles. Pregnant women who received chiropractic care had a greater ability to relax their pelvic floor muscles at rest. This relaxation of the pelvic floor muscles may mean that chiropractic care could be of benefit to pregnant women, as it may help them have a natural vaginal delivery.

What does a Chiropractor do?

August 22, 2016 Chiro Care

Chiropractic is a health profession, which diagnoses, manages and prevents spinal, bone and muscular disorders and their effects on the nervous system and general body health. Chiropractors enhance the body’s natural ability to repair itself without the use of drugs and surgery. To achieve this, chiropractors apply a wide range of manual techniques, which can improve the proper functioning of your body, and promote good health.

What is Chiropractic Care?

August 7, 2016 Chiro Care

Chiropractic care is based on the ‘vitalistic’ principle – the concept that there is some spark that exists in the living, but not the non-living. That we are more than just the sum of our parts. Chiropractors refer to this ‘vital spark’, ‘energy’ or ‘soul’ as Inborn (or Innate) Intelligence. The premise of inborn intelligence suggests that, given the right environment, our body has the capacity to heal itself.

Getting the Most From Your Chiropractic Care

July 23, 2016 Chiro Care

While the actual techniques used by your chiropractor will vary according to your individual health needs, the goal is always to maximise your health potential. One powerful tool often used by chiropractors is the spinal adjustment. The spinal adjustment is a very precise and specific pressure used to correct spinal imbalance that alters nerve and muscle function. Building a stronger and healthier body shouldn’t stop after your adjustment though. Here are some things you can do to get the most from your chiropractic care.

Tennis Injuries

It Could Be More Than Just Low Back Pain

June 23, 2016 Neck & Back Pain

Chiropractic patients often experience unexpected improvements in many aspects of their health after commencing treatment. Patients who have received chiropractic 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 complaint, such as low 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 low back pain.

How to relieve stress

June 12, 2016 Wellness

The very mention of the word stress is enough to raise the blood pressure and increase the heart rate in many people. But stress is not necessarily bad. The good news is there are some natural ways to relieve stress. Stress can be likened to the tension on a guitar string: too little and the music is dull; too much and the music is shrill or the string snaps. Although we need some level of stress in our lives in order to function, it becomes negative when the demands of a situation outweigh the body's ability to cope.

Sciatica Pain Relief

May 20, 2016 Neck & Back Pain

In western society, sciatica pain is a common ailment, particularly in the 30-50 year age group. It describes a set of symptoms that include hip, buttock and leg pain radiating from the low back along the path of the sciatic nerve. This nerve is formed from the L4-53 spinal nerves which join up as they exit the lower back. It runs through the buttock, down the back of the thigh and leg, into the foot. Many people are searching for sciatica pain relief as it seems so persistent.

Children need chiropractic too!

May 2, 2016 Wellness

Children suffer from back and neck pain just as adults do, but unfortunately many parents do not realise their children have a spinal, and therefore, a health problem. They deserve the same if not more attention than adults as their spines and nervous systems are still developing and can be more easily corrected.
