The goal of chiropractic is to ensure the joints of your back and neck work well to allow your nervous system a very important control system in your body akin to the electrical system in a house do its thing and keep you well.
Just like your teeth are exposed to everyday traumas and require routine dental checks to ensure they stay healthy, your spine is also exposed to everyday traumas and requires routine chiropractic checks to ensure it stays healthy. Traumas, be they physical, chemical or mental, be they sudden as in a bad lift or an accident, be they slow as in sitting at a computer all day, all place stress and tension on your spine and surrounding muscles causing your muscles to contract and your joints to seize up irritating your nervous system. Sickness, lack of energy, stiffness, aches and pains are all signs that your nervous system isn’t functioning right.
Chiropractic is a healthcare that specialises in the art and science of joint manipulation known as the adjustment, this entails the application of a very quick thrust to a joint in a specific direction allowing the joint return to its optimal motion pattern. At Cork Chiropractic we use an instrument called the Activator to adjust joints. When it comes to pain or feeling under par, chiropractic offers a very real, low risk, pain free, natural alternative to drugs and surgery and is suited to all age groups and body types.
