The Chiropractic Approach Chiropractic is an approach to health and wellbeing that centres around the body’s own natural ability to heal itself. Given the right raw materials, your body has a miraculous ability to regenerate cells that have been damaged by trauma, toxins or sickness.
The Human Body The human body is incredibly complex and intricate. It’s made up of over 75 trillion cells with specialised functions that adapt to your body’s changing requirements...
The Human Body You digest food, alter your heart rate and blood pressure, defend against bacteria and viruses, heal wounds and broken bones, and carry out thousands of other essential body functions without having to think about them.

The Human Body Central to all your bodily functions is your nervous system. It consists of your brain, sense organs, spinal cord and nerves that branch out to every single cell. Your nervous system is the most complex part of your body. Extreme close-up of a bundle of nerves
A Natural Approach Chiropractic is based on the knowledge that tension, misalignment or altered function within your spine (called subluxations) can interfere with the flow of information and energy along your nerves. This may dramatically affect the function of your body in many different ways.
A Natural Approach Doctors of Chiropractic focus on improving the function of your spine, which helps to free the flow of information throughout your nervous system. This helps your body to better coordinate its functions, adapt to stress and heal itself.
The Nervous System controls the function of every cell in your body. Interference to your nerves will often result in dis-ease
With Chiropractic, many people naturally find relief from aches, pains and the symptoms of a huge range of conditions, and grow flexible and healthy without overloading their systems with painkillers, antiinflammatory drugs, and other chemicals. This is because Chiropractic often gets to the cause of the problem, rather than just masking the symptoms.
Subluxations A vertebral subluxation is an area of altered spinal motion, tension or misalignment that interferes with the flow of information and energy along spinal nerves and throughout your nervous system. Although some are obvious, many subluxations exist without apparent pain or discomfort.
Causes of Subluxation The causes of Subluxation can be classified into three main types of stress: Physical Stress such as injuries, accidents, slips, falls, the birth process, prolonged abnormal postures and repetitive movements.
Causes of Subluxation Mental and Emotional Stress such as arguments, upsets, personal traumas, work pressure, life or career changes.
Causes of Subluxation Chemical Stress including toxins, additives and chemicals used in food production, cigarette smoking, medications and other pollutants in our environment.
Possible Effects of Subluxation Low back pain, neck pain, headaches, pain in other parts of the body
Possible Effects of Subluxation Spinal degeneration or decay, reduced vitality and energy levels, poor posture
Possible Effects of Subluxation Reduced organ function, changes in muscular tension, asthma and allergies
Adjustments Adjustments are the precise methods Doctors of Chiropractic use to correct subluxations and improve the function of your nervous system. Adjustments are designed to be as specific, effective and comfortable as possible.
Adjustments Chiropractic has been evolving for more than 100 years. During this time a great number of different styles and approaches have been developed. We use a wide range of different methods adapted to suit people of all ages and body types, from newborns to the elderly.
SOT In this office, we use a technique called ‘Sacro-Occipital Technique’, or SOT. Designed in 1925 and perfected for over 50 years, this is one of the most gentle techniques in the Chiropractic spectrum. It works by redistributing the spinal fluid surrounding your brain and spinal cord, to allow your nervous system to function optimally.
