The goal of chiropractic is to ensure that the joints of the neck and back move well to allow the nervous system a very important control system in the body akin to the electrical system in a house do its thing and keep the body working well.
Just like teeth are exposed to everyday traumas and require routine dental checks to ensure they stay healthy, the 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, or be they slow as in sitting at a computer all day, all place stress and tension on the spine and surrounding muscles causing muscles to contract and joints to seize up irritating the nervous system. Sickness, lack of energy, stiffness, aches and pains are all signs that the 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 Clinic 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.

Many people think foot pain is normal as many people suffer from it, but it is not!
An orthotic is a custom made device that is worn inside the shoe. It is designed to align the foot and ankle in a better anatomical position for better stability and balance. When one considers the average daily step count it is easy to understand how a small problem in the workings of the foot can lead to big problems further up the leg in the hip and low back as these joints strive to compensate or the foot. With the recent upsurge in running, runners should know that the pressure on feet, knees and hips etc during running can be three to four times body weight so it is important that they check their shoes to observe for any unusual wear pattern and seek early advice to avoid running related limb problems.
At Cork Chiropractic Clinic we work with The Orthotic Group, Canadas largest orthotic laboratory who provide orthotics that excel in comfort, construction and design.
