Why Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care is designed to allow your body to correct itself naturally. We all have an inbuilt intelligence that runs and controls our bodily functions. Your brain is the key part of this system as it possesses the unique ability to dictate physiological changes to help you thrive in any environment that you are in. Whether you are training for a marathon or indeed training to have a baby, whatever you need to function to your greatest capabilities, your brain organises the changes to happen in your body. For example, growth of your placenta, and little baby are prioritised by the brain and the changes in your uterus, hormone levels, joints of your pelvis are all brain driven changes.
The brain’s signals travel through the spine to reach the intended area of the body. The function of your spine influences the nerve signals and their ability to communicate vital messages correctly. Research into the safety of Chiropractic adjustments has repeatedly shown that Chiropractic adjustments are safe.
