Although people may visit a chiropractor with headaches, back pains or similar complaints, Chiropractic does not actually treat any injury or illness. Chiropractors specialise in finding and reducing subluxation, reducing stress on your nervous system and restoring health to your body. This means that we look at your whole body, irrespective of where any pains might be, and recommend care according to how you are FUNCTIONING rather than just how you are FEELING.
People often think that injuries that happened a long time ago are not relevant, but just the opposite is true. The longer ago you had an injury, the more your body will have adapted to that injury. The pain may have gone away a decade ago, but if the problem did not heal fully, then you will have learnt ways to avoid putting stress on that old injury. If that is the case, then you will not be functioning well, even if you feel OK!
Many of us have had subluxations since childhood, from falls or accidents which have been forgotten long ago.
Our job is to identify problems which you may not have known about, and get you back to functioning at your best.
What is a chiropractic adjustment?
This may be done by hand, with tools, or with special mechanisms built into the tables. An adjustment is very different to a manipulation, even though they are often confused. The adjustment is fast and gentle, and it does not normally hurt- in fact most people find it a blissful experience.
The adjustment is unique to Chiropractors, and only properly qualified Chiropractors are able to adjust. Glenn has had postgraduate training in a number of different techniques, which he uses selectively to ensure that care best fits not only you as a person, but also your stage of progress.
Most adults receive some combination of diversified and Gonstead techniques, which are highly safe, fast, and efficient techniques that require extensive training. People needing deeper structural or “spinal curve” correction receive a specific protocol of care known as CBP (Chiropractic Biophysics).
Choosing a chiropractor with extensive experience means that you get the care that you need, so that you can get back to feeling and being your best.
This approach produces amazing results, with 99% of our clients reporting unexpected improvements in their health which they never considered linked to their spine. When your nervous system is free, your body’s natural ability to heal is unleashed. And it can be very powerful.
“There is a direct link between a healthy spine and the overall health of an individual. Millions of individuals worldwide go to see doctors of chiropractic every year with the objective to recover and maintain an optimum health.”
