Chiropractic helps you overcome pain and stiffness by using manipulation to stimulate your nervous system to function correctly. Your nervous system controls everything in the body, so a failure of it to communicate with the muscles, joints or organs can result in decreased function. When this affects the muscles and joints it means that you don’t detect stretch as well or you tire out quickly. This leads to poor control and stability and ultimately an injury and pain.
Chiropractic is a primary contact health profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and management of conditions that are due to problems with bones, joints, muscles and nerves, particularly those related to the spine.
In common with medical practitioners, the profession has statutory regulation and all chiropractors must be registered under the terms of the Chiropractors Act 1994 with the statutory regulator, the General Chiropractic Council (GCC).
