How chiropractic treatments help

Chiropractic adjustments gently realign joints to a more optimal position, they take the pressure off surrounding structures such as ligaments, and tendons muscles and increase blood flow and lymphatic flow.

An adjustment will restore normal joint motion and movement in the chain e.g upper limb, lower limb and spine (head to tailbone)

Soft tissue releases surrounding the joint that has been adjusted will also create even more movement and help alongside the adjustment by providing positive feedback to your brain on joint positioning and optimal function.

Some symptoms you can have, which can mean you need an adjustment:

  • Pain acute or chronic
  • Aches and discomfort in certain areas (not necessarily in the area that needs to be adjusted)
  • Limited range of motion
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Changes in digestion, mood, and energy levels.
  • Numbness/tingling/sharp pain
  • Following an injury
  • If you sit a lot
  • If you are an athlete or exercise a lot or do a sport
  • Stress/anxiety

You can also not show any signs or symptoms that are obvious and still need an adjustment, chiropractic care is for everyone

How do misaligned joints affect other tissues in the body?
Whatever is attached to the joint is getting stretched or put under tension.
Your nervous system is protected by your spine and relays some important information between your brain and all the areas of your body, from your joints and soft tissue structures to your digestive organs and more.

Without making it too complex, there was a study done that showed how chiropractic adjustments improve brain function. These significant changes occur in the brain where
higher learning and cognition as well as socialization, and sensorimotor control are found. This is one aspect of how adjustments can help on a bigger scale.

Chiropractic care really is amazing for everyone, this short explanation I hope inspires you to consider booking a treatment.
