Chiropractic is a primary health care profession founded by DD Palmer in 1885. It involves the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system.
There are many reasons to seek out a Chiropractor:
1. Pain relief/care of current symptoms
Aiming to uncover source of pain
Customised action plan based on your individual needs
Discussion and investigation into any chronic issues
Action plan to address existing issues
You don't have to wait for the symptoms of pain and dysfunction before you seek out chiropractic care

What is an adjustment?
The application of force to a joint to increase movement. During a manual adjustment, pressure changes inside the joint capsule and a gas bubble may escape - this results in a noise. The noise itself does not need to be heard for an adjustment to be deemed successful.
