What is Chiropractic?

  
Chiropractic is a health care discipline based on the scientific premise that the body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. These important functions are controlled by the brain, spinal cord and nerves of the body. “Chiropractic” comes from the Greek word Chiropraktikos, meaning “done by hand.”
 
The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine, and pelvis) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system).

A subluxation is simply a term used to describe when a vertebrae is out of alignment with either the one above or below, which may cause puts tension on the spinal cord, causing symptoms or pain within your body.

What to Expect? 

On entering the clinic you will be welcomed by one of our helpful Chiropractic Assistants.  Some paper work will be filled in and we will establish the reason for your visit.
 
You will then commence your Initial Consultation.  This appointment is very thorough and involves an orthopaedic, neurological and chiropractic assessment which is performed by your Chiropractor.
 
If x-rays are required we do those on site, these can range from a spot spinal x-ray, through to a full region spine and pelvis x-ray.  All our x-rays are digital.
 
After Alistair has completed his tests if indicated , you will have your spinal adjustment.
