What is chiropractic?

northampton chiropracticChiropractic is a holistic method of care which involves precise adjustments which are made to the joints of the spine, and other parts of the human body, with the aim of relieving interference in the nervous system.

The human nervous system contains the Brain, Spinal Cord and Peripheral Nerves, everything we do is regulated and controlled by the nervous system.

In order to have optimum health our brain needs to send and receive information from every system, organ, tissue and cell in our body, if there is an interference then the signals do not move freely on the superhighways between our brain and body, as a result some of the organs such as the stomach, bladder, lungs, liver etc will either get too much or not enough stimulation from the nervous system, which can cause an imbalance in the body.

Through specific chiropractic adjustments it is possible to correct the misalignments and restore movement to the joint and improve the function within the nervous system, hence chiropractic could be beneficial to everyone from young to old who is interested in a holistic approach to health and wellbeing.

Chiropractic adjustments are very fast and gentle, these are applied predominantly by hand; the chiropractor will make the adjustment with a small force in a specific direction, allowing  your body to release the stress from the joint, and promoting free movement of the spine, which is why chiropractic is so popular and effective.

Who can benefit from Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is for everybody….who has a spine!

Infants learn to walk…and they fall a lot…

Children play and this puts stress on their spine, they jump and then fall again….

Students and pupils sit all day in one position which over time will change the shape and structure of their spine…

Adults working in one position for 8+ hours a day can develop repetitive strain disorders…

Office workers sit at a desk and stare at a computer all day…which can lead to forward head carriage, poor posture, lower back pain and headaches.

Pregnant women have issues with lower back & pelvis due to the additional weight of the baby and the changes to the biomechanics of the body.

Athletes and active people put significant stress on their body, with many world renowned sports people relying on regular chiropractic adjustments to improve their performance and keep them injury free?

The Elderly when we age we lose flexibility in the spine and joints of the body, so playing with the grandchildren is not as easy as  it used to be anymore.

Post-Traumatic care: many injuries caused by road traffic accident are not easily detectable by x-ray and can often be ignored by doctors. Even a minor misalignment in the spine can cause long lasting damage to the nervous system.

Mobile phone users: oh well, just look around, everybody is leaning forward staring at their phones or tablets, the head weighs approx. 5~6kg and with the added pressure of forward head carriage alters our posture and places a significant stress on the spine and musculature around the neck and shoulders.
