Chiropractic and Wellness

The term wellness is used a lot in this day and age. It has been used by chiropractors for decades and has recently become the “in” word for many health related professions. Our definition of wellness is to have one’s body and mind in a state of maximal health. This allows the person to live their life with the maximal comfort and enjoyment possible. Being out of pain is a very important part of being well but it is only 1 part.

Wellness based health care has recently taken off due in part to the communities dissatisfaction with the risks and side effects of main stream medicine and the fact people want to feel better and live a more enjoyable life.  

Chiropractic works on the principle that the Nervous system (Essentially the brain, spinal cord and nerves) is the governing system of the body. It can be likened to a computer as it's able to process information rapidly and then relay information back and forth between your brain and body. Because of this, it controls the function of allother systems in the body . When the nervous system is interfered with the body doesn’t work as well as it should.
 
We generally find that people who are in pain and/or unwell have interference in their nervous system. Chiropractic adjustments are aimed at helping you and your families bodies remove this interference. This, along with encouraging a healthy lifestyle, is how we help our patients become well and stay well. 
 
Our clinic is focused on family care. Because of this we are knowledgeable in the highly specialised low force techniques that are required to adjust infants, pregnant women and the elderly.
