Chiropractic is one of the largest primary-contact health care professions in Canada (Canadian Chiropractic Association). It is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on treatment and preventative care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints (Ontario Chiropractic Association).
Optimizing Health With Chiropractic: The body by design has the ability to self-regulate and self-heal. When your finger is cut, the body sets in place a series of events that occur automatically to help it heal. How amazing! This ability is governed by the nervous system comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves which allows communication to occur between every cell, tissue, organ, muscle and joints of the entire body. Like a road map, each nerve in the body provides information to a specific area of the body. This vital nervous system communication can be altered from improper motion, position or tension within the joints of your spine. A chiropractor’s job is to locate and adjust these joints in order to restore joint function and reduce nerve interference.
