About Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care may help preserve and improve function of an individual’s body allowing the body to self-heal when proper alignment is achieved and maintained. Additionally, the body may heal at a considerably faster rate in those who receive regular chiropractic care, especially when combined with other healthy activities such as regular exercise and eating a nutritious diet.

The human brain sends messages to the body's nervous system, through our spinal column. Therefore, proper maintenance and care of our spine is important to individual parts of our body. Regular care of our body’s spine and joints is an important step to maintaining good overall health and can have a substantial positive impact on your overall well-being.

Why choose Chiropractic?

‘Chiropractic’ comes from the Greek word Chiropratikos, meaning “done by hand”.  It is a health care discipline specialising in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of conditions which are due to mechanical dysfunction and injury of soft tissues i.e. joints, muscles, discs, nerves.

Chiropractors focus on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and that affects the health of the patient. They use a variety of techniques, depending on the individual’s requirements, to achieve an overall goal that resolves symptoms, retrains altered movement patterns, and prevents recurrence.

Your treatment program will take into account the nature of your condition and your own personal commitments to provide you with the best possible outcome.

At Institute of Sports and Spines, our practitioners use comprehensive assessment protocols and techniques to help you identify what is causing you pain in your back, neck, shoulders, knees, hips, ankles and wrists. If you have problem, give us a call to have your case thoroughly investigated.
