Chiropractors work with the nervous system. When there is misalignment of the spine it can interfere with the nervous system, this is sometimes called a ‘subluxation’ or ‘trapped nerve’. The aim of the Chiropractor is to ensure that the joints of the spine are aligned and moving freely using the Chiropractic Adjustment; this allows the nerves to work at their optimum. The misalignments of the spine are caused by two types of trauma.
The most common cause of a Trapped Nerve is poor posture and the small repetitive movements we do every day.
A trapped nerve can be caused by big traumas like a car accident or falling down the stairs as well as the small repetitive traumas of everyday life. Small traumas can be caused by repeatedly slouching in front of a computer, the stress of a deadline, lifting children, gardening and exercising incorrectly. When these joints are misaligned they can impinge on the nerves affecting how they work ultimately causing a myriad of problems and painful symptoms. These symptoms commonly include low back pain, sciatica, neck pain and headaches. Often, these misalignments cause no obvious symptoms and remain undetected for a number of years.
Chiropractors work by realigning the joints of the Spine; Removing pressure from the Nerves and allowing optimum function of the Nervous System to every Joint and Muscle in the body.
By realigning the bones of the spine, Chiropractors remove the pressure on the nerves and allowing optimum function of the nervous system. This restores balance and function of the body’s natural ability to heal itself and then you start feeling much, much better!
