What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that focuses on the relationship between the spine and the nervous system and how that relationship affects our health. Using spinal adjustments and other manual and soft tissue techniques, chiropractic corrects misalignments of the joints, improves muscle tone and stimulates nerve activity. Chiropractors work at the primary or initial stages of the healthcare system. They are able to diagnose conditions related to the musculoskeletal, nervous and metabolic systems.
About Chiropractors/ Chiropractic
Our Chiropractors are experienced with numerous conditions. They are trained to treat neck pain, back pain and muscle tension associated with a vast number of conditions. Docklands Health Chiropractors are trained to refer patients to other professionals when necessary to get the best patient outcome for the individual. Our goal is to remain patient-focused as we believe this is the best way to serve the Docklands Chiropractic community.
Chiropractors have traditionally focused on “spinal alignment’ and used techniques in order to best serve their patients with the overall goal of improving spinal health. In recent times, a new wave of healthcare has come to the forefront and now most Chiropractors are coming around to the inevitability that is basing their treatments off of scientific evidence and patient preference. As with any health practitioner Chiropractors must continue to develop their learning and understanding of the human body as science improves every day.
