CREATING THE RIGHT
CONDITIONS FOR THE BODY TO
USE IT’S INNATE POTENTIAL TO
HEAL AND RESTORE ITSELF.
Chiropractors are fully regulated primary healthcare professionals. Their role is to gently remove the interferences to the nervous system allowing the body to function at its full potential.
The world health organization defines Chiropractic as a health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health.
THE NERVOUS SYSTEM
WHAT DOES THE NERVOUS SYSTEM DO?
Your nervous system, consisting of your brain, spinal cord and all your nerves, is the most vital system of your body. Its purpose is to coordinate and regulate all the other systems of your body as well as help you adapt to your environment. Just a few of the jobs it looks after, without a conscious thought from you are:
Producing stomach acid after a meal
Communicating with the immune system
Increasing your pulse when climbing stairs
Reducing your blood pressure when seated
Learning to crawl, walk or ride a bicycle
Producing pain when touching a hot stove
Perspiring to cool you when it’s hot
THE NERVOUS SYSTEM
Your nervous system controls every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. If your nervous system were to be impaired, interfered with or compromised so nerve messages to or from your brain were distorted, parts of your body may not work as intended.
That’s why the most significant parts of your nervous system are protected by bone. Your brain is protected by your skull and your spinal cord is covered by the moving bones of your spinal column.
Yet, even with this protection, interferences can happen. Especially along the spinal column. The most common (and overlooked) cause is stress.
