What is Chiropractic?

A Chiropractor is concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal adjustment and other joint and soft-tissue manipulation.

Is Chiropractic Safe?

Spinal manipulation is very safe when performed by a trained, registered practitioner. Some people may experience mild soreness or discomfort following treatment. This usually resolves within 12 to 48 hours. Your Chiropractor will discuss this with you prior to any intervention in a process called informed consent.
