The Spine – Gateway to Good Health!

The nervous system is the communication pathway between the brain and the entire body. The spinal cord and spinal nerves are protected by the vertebrae. When these become misaligned or jammed together due to injuries or poor posture the communication between those nerves and their target is affected. Like standing on a hosepipe reduces the water reaching the garden, this nerve pressure has long term implications for health.

Initially experienced as back or neck pain due to the associated muscle spasm and joint injury, long-term effects include motor weakness, paraesethias and altered autonomic nervous system function.

A healthy spine is key to good health. Sedentary lifestyles and the poor posture that develops from them affects the natural spinal curves and reduces the ability of the spine to deal with the weight of the body. This results in other joints dealing with increased loads at unusual load angles and predisposes one to osteoarthritis.

Chiropractic is a neuromusculoskeletal speciality that uses specific spinal adjustments to correct these issues and has been proven to be the most effective as well as the most cost-effective treatment for mechanical lower back and neck pain. Together with regular physical exercise and good nutrition, a strong and healthy spine goes a long way in protecting your health.
