Chiropractic is the fastest growing drugless healing professions in the world today.

People go to see a chiropractor for many different reasons, here are the most common:

 

Subluxations

Chiropractic is about having a healthy spine that allows for the free flow of nerve signals to the whole body. To allow this to occur the body needs to be free of subluxations which then allows the body to move with ease. A vertebral subluxation is the result of chemical, emotional & physical interference that disrupts the messages to & from the brain.

As Chiropractor’s we are trained in the detection and correction of vertebral subluxations by using specific adjustments to the spine.

Adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments change the function in the part of the brain called the “prefrontal cortex.” This is the part of your brain that is involved in pain perception and is where pain is perceived as acute or chronic pain episode.  

Ashburton Chiropractic may or may not adjust your spine exactly where you feel it hurts. As Chiropractors we are looking for parts of your spine and/or body where there is a lack of proper movement and will adjust you there – so don’t worry if it is not where you feel the pain.
