“Regular checks and adjustments of your spine will ensure your brain, spine and nerves can talk to all your muscles, bones, organs, glands and tissues as well as they are designed to.”
Chiropractic is an holistic form of healthcare that works with the body’s natural ability to heal itself and stay well. Every organ and every system in your body is dependent on being able to receive information from your brain in order to function properly. When there are interferences (“vertebral subluxations”) in these pathways, the messages cannot pass through freely. This compromises your body’s ability to work at its best. Many people don’t realise that the symptoms they are experiencing are actually a result of interferences in their spine blocking the communication pathways within their central communication system.
How Does Chiropractic Work
Chiropractic means literally "done by hand". We adjust areas of the spine that are compromising the health and function of the nervous system. These areas are called "vertebral subluxations". Once adjusted, the information is once again free to flow uninterrupted to and from the different parts of the body… your muscles, bones, organs, hormonal glands, skin, eyes, ears...
These vertebral subluxations can occur in anybody, independent of age or symptomatic complaints, as they can be caused by either physical, chemical and/or emotional traumas. There is nobody who is exempt from these traumas in our busy world! It’s important for everybody to get their spine checked to ensure a healthy functioning nervous system.
There are many techniques that you will come across amongst chiropractors. This will depend on where your chiropractor trained and the preference your chiropractor has in how they correct vertebral subluxations. Our chiropractors received their graduate degree from the reknown New Zealand College of Chiropractic.
At The Healing Room we use a variety of techniques dependent on the individual being adjusted.
We use some 'low-force techniques' for babies, children, elderly and sensitive subluxations. This really means that less depth or body movement is experienced during the correction. These techniques include Thompson, Activator, SOT, Trigger Point and Toggle techniques.
Other techniques we use are high-velocity adjustments, meaning fast not forceful. Many prefer these techniques as there is often instant gratification and relief. Techniques we use from this group are Diversified and Gonstead techniques.
