Chiropractors specialize in manually adjusting vertebrae of the spine and other joints. Adjustment helps relieve pain and restore normal functioning to the spine, joints and supporting structures of the body – so you can enjoy your everyday activities again as quickly as possible. Chiropractors also prescribe therapeutic exercise, provide nutritional counselling and injury prevention strategies.
Restricted joint movement in the spine can cause pressure, inflammation and swelling that can cause illness and pain. Chiropractors believe that these issues in the spine can affect your overall health. Injuries, accidents, stress and poor posture can all contribute to disturbances in the spine. Manipulation of the spine can relieve the problem by gently manipulating the nerves that supply that area.
