Why Should I See A Chiropractor?

How often do you go to the dentist? Or get your car serviced?
Most people plan to do both on a regular basis, rather than waiting until their car breaks down or they are writhing in pain with toothache. Given the importance of our mental and physical health and wellbeing, don’t you think your spine and body needs check-ups or maintenance in just the same way? 


How often should I see a Chiropractor?

A chiropractic spinal check ensures your spine, posture, and body are aligned well, moving well, and in good balance. 

Maintaining your body with regular chiropractic adjustments will assist to manage and heal the stress of the normal wear and tear endured by our bodies. It also proactively helps to minimise or prevent issues, injury, and pain.

Pain and Chiropractic Care

Many people initially visit a chiropractor when they are in pain from an injury or ongoing issue. Then they continue their care with regular check-ups as a proactive healthcare approach that helps keep them moving well, feeling well, and getting the most out of life.  

You don’t need to be in pain to see a chiropractor

In fact, it’s best not to wait until you have pain or discomfort before you start your chiropractic care!

Visiting the practice before injury or the onset of acute pain means there is less of a hurdle to get over on the road to achieving your physical best. But, if you experience pain, your chiropractor can assist in relieving it, and the issues surrounding it.

It is especially important to see your chiropractor if you are:

Ill or in any discomfort or pain

Pain symptoms are a sign that your body is struggling to maintain its balance or homeostasis. You need a healthy spinal-nerve relationship to function at your best!

Involved in any accident or trauma

Car accidents or simple falls can cause severe stress on the spine. A fall, even as a toddler or younger child, can cause or contribute to health problems later in life.

Competing in sports

Chiropractic can give you an edge. Many Olympic and professional athletes wouldn’t dream of competing without having their spine and body checked and adjusted by their chiropractor.  

Pregnant

Pregnancy is a time of hormonal changes that “loosen” your ligaments in preparation for birth. This loosening, however, can weaken your spine. Chiropractic adjustments can help with the pain and discomfort that comes with body changes due to pregnancy.

A new mother

The birth process can be very traumatic for the mother’s body and spine. An adjustment will help ensure everything is aligned and supportive as your body readjusts post-delivery.

A baby

The birth process can also be traumatic for the baby and create spinal distortions that may affect how your baby settles, grows, and develops. Posture distortions from birth can lead the baby to not want to turn their head equally to both sides, causing a flattening of the cranial bones on one side of the head (Positional Plagiocephaly).

Suffering from “Clicky Jaw”

Or have one jaw muscle tighter (more sensitive to pressure) than the other. Gentle adjustments and mobilisation to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and cranials can be very effective in realigning and resolving that clicky or painful jaw.

Under a lot of Stress

Physical, emotional, and chemical stresses are tough on your spine-nerve system. Regular adjustments will help to reduce the impact of stress and keep your body in balance.

Alive and Have a Spine

Chiropractic is a fabulous option if you want to improve and maintain your health naturally, from the inside out, without drugs or surgery.

Chiropractic care is an effective and natural health care that supports your overall health and wellbeing! Book a consultation with one of our caring practitioners today!
