What is Chiropractic – and how can it help?
Chiropractors are trained to detect and adjust areas of your spine that are causing irritation, tension, or interference to your nerve system. These areas of your spine we refer to as a spinal dysfunction. Spinal dysfunction can cause disharmony in other body organs, and systems that allow you to enjoy your health potential.
Your chiropractor is trained to detect and remove areas of spinal dysfunction through an adjustment made in a variety of ways, (eg hand, instrument, or special table).Usually the adjustment is relaxing and pleasant. This process frees the body from interference. This allows the flow of natural health and the body to function to its optimum level.
“It’s not a question of how well do you feel,
it’s a question of how well could you be!’

Is Chiropractic Safe?
Chiropractic is REMARKABLY safe. Studies prove that chiropractic adjustments are 100 times safer than over the counter medication, and 24,413 times safer than spinal surgery. You are more likely to be struck by lightening, than to experience an adverse reaction from your chiropractic care.
Will my adjustments hurt?
It is very rare that your chiropractic adjustment will cause pain or leave you feeling worse afterwards. At Life Chiropractic we have invested in up-to-date technology that allows a wide range of techniques to be applied to the patient. This ensures your adjustments are specific and delivered with the minimum of discomfort. The majority of patients find the appointment enjoyable and EFFECTIVE.
Will I benefit from Chiropractic care?
All you need to benefit from chiropractic is a spine and nerve system. The most delicate tissue in the body belongs to your nerve system. This essential organ is housed and protected by the flexible bones in your spine. Due to the dynamic nature of your spine it is the most common site of stress and tension on your nerve system (see article on the effect of walking upright and lower back pain ). Chiropractic is the only profession that has solely focused on removing tension from the nerve system by adjusting areas of spinal dysfunction. Improved science has lead to specific techniques achieving greater results for the chiropractic patient. These techniques allow chiropractors to care for the very young to the elderly and all people in between. Chiropractic is the third largest healthcare in the world because it WORKS. Chiropractic will work for you!
