Chiropractic works with your body and its own self-healing and self-regulating abilities. Although chiropractors are known as the doctors of the spine, the true change in your body comes from your nervous system and its control of every function, feeling, sensation and symptom.
Trillions of signals travel every second from your brain to your body. So if these messages are interrupted by improper motion of the bones in the spine, your body isn’t able to function to the best of its ability.
If your body isn’t nurtured on the inside, these effects will begin to show on the outside.
Chiropractic has a distinct, drug-free approach to health that promotes natural function and potential which makes it simple, safe and scientific. This is why so many health conscious families are making chiropractic care a regular addition to their lifestyle.
BACK & NECK PAIN
When you’re not healthy on the inside, your brain lets you know something isn’t right by showing symptoms on the outside. Symptoms like headaches can be signs that your neck isn’t moving correctly and the nerves are short-circuited.
This means that pain is the most common reason people begin care with chiropractic. Research shows that chiropractic care is exceptionally effective at helping people get rid of their pain, and can often reduce the chances of it coming back.
Once you begin to understand how great your body can function once pain has subsided, most people choose to continue making chiropractic at InsideOut a part of their regular care.
Chiropractic can be essential to preparing your body for pregnancy and an ideal birth. Pregnancy causes a huge strain on your nervous system, as your body is flooded with hormones and is required to change rapidly and dramatically. Pelvic imbalance, for example, is a very common occurrence during pregnancy. This is when your uterus expands to make a comfortable home for your growing baby. Many of the anchoring and suspending ligaments for the uterus attach to the pelvis, which means the pelvis can be twisted or misaligned causing unnecessary constraints around your baby. This can affect optimal birthing position and pregnancy wellbeing.
Studies show that women under chiropractic care have shorter labour times and less intervention during labour. Having a well-balanced nervous system is integral to optimise the birth process and allow the intelligence of the body to function at the highest possible level to ensure healthy mum and bub.
KIDS & BABIES
Naturally when people realise the benefits of chiropractic care for themselves and appreciate how much better their body functions, they want the ones they love to have the same experience. Optimal health is integral to having a healthy start to life. Significant trauma can occur to babies at birth and many parents choose to have their newborns checked for any spinal problems in their first few days. As children grow and develop, regular activities such as learning to walk, riding a bicycle, playing football or practicing ballet can cause spinal problems.
Whilst a fall can be comforted by a hug and a band-aid, the unique domain of chiropractors is to maintain and support the growth and health of the child’s spine, pelvis and nervous system. Healthy chiropractic kids make for healthy adults from the InsideOut.
Many families are now choosing to have their precious newborns assessed for any stress or dysfunction in their spine and cranium as soon as possible after birth. Gentle, paediatric specific chiropractic adjustments can assess and correct any restrictions in the joints of the spine and bones of the skull to relieve stress and tension through the nervous systems of babies, giving them the best start to life.
In utero and during the birth process babies can experience various stresses. Physically constraints in the uterus, the journey through the birth canal and the delivery process itself can alter the growth and development of a child.
Chiropractic care is one of the safest forms of health care for both adults and children. Chiropractic adjustments for babies differ significantly from those performed on adults. Chiropractors use specific, specialised and adjustments for each age group. Adjustments for babies are gentle, precise, and calming , sometimes the chiropractor will use merely a light fingertip pressure. This makes it comfortable for both parent and baby.
65% of neurological development occurs in your child's first year, and the spine doubles in length during this time which makes this early development so important to maximize nerve function for healthy, happy babies- from the InsideOut!
