The spine and nerve connections to the body
The Role of a Chiropractor
Chiropractors undertake 5 years of university study to be able to diagnose and treat a vast array of musculoskeletal problems, like neck pain, headaches, back pain and sciatica.Chiropractors specialise in the spine – how it moves and functions, because the spine covers and protects our nervous system, which is the master control system of the body.
Chiropractors believe that when we have misaligned vertebrae in the spine, this can cause pain, stiffness and other symptoms, but it can also affect the flow of information along the nerves. Without proper nerve supply, your health and wellbeing may become compromised.
These spinal misalignments are often caused by an accumulation of stress on the body, creating tension that the body stores. To really get to the cause of your symptoms, it is vital to look at what physical, chemical and emotional stressors you have in your life.
What does Holistic mean?
Holistic refers to the philosophy of HOLISM – a theory that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
This thinking in regards to healthcare is the opposite to allopathic medicine, which has a Reductionist view – a theory that every complex system can be explained by analysing its simplest parts.
Current research tells us that poor lifestyle choices are the biggest contributor to the epidemic of chronic diseases which affects most westernized countries.
By taking a holistic approach to your health means we look at all aspects of you, not just the sore bits. In doing this our aim is to empower you to take control of your health.
For over 120 years, chiropractors have believed in the innate healing abilities of the human body. Our focus at Cape Byron Holistic Chiropractic is to help you to discover the underlying causes of your health issues. Here we will focus on 3 main areas that often cause health problems.
Repetitive movements, heavy workloads, too much sitting, accidents and injuries all contribute to the health of your spine.
What are you putting into your body? Are you deficient in any vitamins or minerals, or eating too much of the wrong things?
Mental & Emotional Stress:
Do you feel overwhelmed by work, life or family commitments? Do you have strategies to deal with these issues?
Over time, these stressors accumulate and wear down our body’s ability to cope and compensate. This often leads to not only pain or discomfort, but other health issues also.
What do you want to achieve?
We will work with you and tailor an approach that is specific to your needs, whether you want to :
- Get out pain
- Feel better
- Start getting healthier, fitter or more flexible
- Have your body function the best it can, and maintain it that way
- Achieve optimal health (whatever that is for you)
