Chiropractic Adjustments

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of the drugs or surgery.

What is a Subluxation?

The vertebral Subluxation Complex or "Subluxation" for short, is a dysfunction of one of the bones in your spine (vertebrae). This dysfunction compromises the normal functioning of your nerves and can influence your overall health and well-being.

What is a chiropractic adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment typically involves a high velocity, low amplitude thrust applied to a vertebra, with the goal of restoring proper motion and relieving pressure on the nervous system. There are many different adjustment techniques used by chiropractors; Dr. Brenda will determine what techniques are appropriate for you.

Is chiropractic safe?

Chiropractic is non-invasive, drug-free discipline meaning that the risks associated with it are very low. Adverse events are very rare and Dr.Brenda will assess you individually for any risks before commencing care.

I don't have pain, should I still see a chiropractor?

It's important for you to know that spinal dysfunction always happens before back pain or neck pain, making most subluxations "silent".

Your body also has a natural way of altering your mechanics to avoid pain when dysfunction is present, which is a smart move in the short term, but not good if you don't eventually correct the dysfunction.
