The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but interest patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease – Thomas Edison.
Chiropractic is an approach to your health that is designed to not only make you feel better but also to make you heal better.
The practice of Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline which emphasises the inherent recuperative power the body has to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.
Chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily of the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health. In addition, doctors of chiropractic recognise the value and responsibility of working in cooperation with others in the best interest of the patient.
The chiropractors at WOW specialise in the diagnosis, treatment and structural rehabilitation of the spine. Every day stress is caused by physical (poor posture, repetitive activities, injuries including sports), emotional (work/home tension, anxiety, depression)and nutritional (deficiencies/toxicities) can all accumulate causing muscular imbalances.
Once these imbalances have been there for a while they can cause the associated joints to become restricted because of ligamentous contracture. When this happens you’ll get abnormal function which will eventually lead to inflammation and pain. Chiropractors call this restriction of the joint a subluxation.
A subluxation is a complex of functional and/or structural and/or pathological articular changes that compromises neural integrity and may influence organ system function and general health.
The chiropractors at WOW take care of segmental subluxations in your spine and body (individual restricted joints) and global subluxations (lots of restrictions that lead to altered posture).
