What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline where qualified practitioners adjust subluxations (joint and nerve dysfunction) in the spine to allow the Nervous System to function properly, heal the body and maximise health. The goal of the adjustment is to restore normal biomechanics, improve spinal function and remove interference from the Nervous System so the body can continue to heal and repair itself. There are many different techniques that can be used; Dr Shondelle will determine the best technique for you.

Are Chiropractic Adjustments safe?
Chiropractic is a non-invasive and drug free healthcare, therefore the risks associated with it are very low. Adverse events are very rare and Dr Shondelle will assess you individually for any risks before commencing care. Chiropractors spend many years training in the examination of the spine and correction of Vertebral Subluxations.

Why do i need to be adjusted if I’m not in pain?
Many people believe that pain is the only representation of dysfunction in the body, however many other signs and symptoms of Vertebral Subluxation can be occurring and causing long term dysfunction and degeneration. This makes it very important to be checked regularly.
Having felt the benefits of Chiropractic adjustments for themselves, many patients choose to continue with wellness or maintenance care to ensure that their spine remains healthy and optimal, just like visiting the dentist to prevent cavities.
