How Does It Work?

E-mail Print PDF

Once the areas of spinal malfunction have been located a Chiropractor will carry out a series of 'adjustments' to the spine.


The word adjustment describes hundreds of ways of using carefully directed and controlled pressure to restore spinal bones to their normal position and motion. Chiropractors use techniques which focus on the gentle but effective non-invasive care of the spine (by aiming to maintain correct spinal alignment), joints and nervous system.


When the spinal function is improved the interference to the nervous system is removed. This allows the body as a whole to understand the messages sent by the nervous system and thus allows the healing process to take place.
