Why consult a Chiropractor?

People consult our office for a number of reasons, but can best be summed up as follows:

1. Performance enhancement

Dr. Chris consults with athletes in sports as diverse as weightlifting, lacrosse, hockey , triathlon, running, swimming, cycling, tennis, football, soccer, baseball, rugby, dancing and squash. Chiropractic has been shown to enhance co-ordination, speed and overall performance. It can also help your body to be more mobile and flexible, and help keep your muscles in peak condition. Research has shown that regular Chiropractic care can improve athletic ability and performance,quicken reflexes and also reduce injury.

2. Spinal pain and symptoms

For many people their introduction to Chiropractic will come through neck or back pain. Although most spinal subluxations (jammed up joints) exist without obvious pain, if left undetected and untreated for long enough, then symptoms of spinal pain will usually appear.

3. Non-spinal related symptoms

Once spinal subluxations (this is what a Chiropractor treats-a bit like tooth decay) are detected in the spine and eliminated, it can be amazing to watch what follows as a patients health returns. Frequently symptoms such as headache disappear, a person’s asthma may also improve. In fact nervous system dysfunction can cause dizziness, fatigue, suppressed immune function, arm and leg pain, tennis elbow, shortness of breath, stomach troubles such as indigestion, constipation / diarrhea, menstrual problems, bedwetting, knee pains, sciatica, shin splints and cold extremities.

4. Maintenance or preventative care

Some of our new patients have already experienced Chiropractic else where, and have a good understanding of the importance of maintenance (just like brushing or flossing your teeth). This type of care helps you to further improve the functions of your spine and nervous system and keep them working at their best. Having your spine checked on a regular basis helps to keep your spine and nervous system as free of interference as possible. It will be our pleasure to continue your Chiropractic care.

5. A nervous system “check-up”

Your Chiropractor is a specialist in the detection, reduction and prevention of nervous system interferences. Chiropractors examine your spine to locate any areas causing nervous system irritation. The beauty of a check – up is that small , covert problems can be detected and corrected before they even cause symptoms. This is why even newborns can receive chiropractic adjustments. And as chiropractic is safer than back surgery, muscle relaxants and even aspirin, you know you’ll be in safe hands.
