Chiropractic care is a form of alternative medicine that was developed in the United States in the early 20th century and now is practiced all over the world. It aims to improve the body's ability to heal itself using alternative medical techniques. It was created by Dr. Andrew J. Palmer and Dr. Edward A. Palmer. Chiropractic care improves the health of the spinal & peripheral nervous system and the surrounding musculoskeletal system. It treats various conditions such as spine, back & neck pain, muscular tension, osteoarthritis, tendinitis, and carpal tunnel syndrome.
The spinal vertebrae or neck are set into their correct position. They are comprised of vertebral column which is positioned along the spine. Subluxation causes back pain which in turn affects the lower spine in the lower back. Subluxation is caused due to misalignment of the body's musculature or by trauma. When a vertebra in the spine is placed in its correct position, it helps to improve range of motion and mobility and thereby prevents pain, and all the associated symptoms. A chiropractor treats you with soft tissue adjustments, manipulation, bone treatment, etc. to achieve the right position of the spine. What is a vertebral fracture? It is a break or fracture of the vertebral column and occurs in the spine. It causes acute pain, numbness, weakness, and other uncomfortable symptoms.

However, if you approach the correct chiropractor in a right manner, you can experience painless and effective treatment. The best way to find a qualified Chiropractor is to consult your own trusted doctor. Make sure that you visit a chiropractor at the right time so that you don't miss out on all the benefits of spinal treatment. For the most Affordable Rockingham Chiropractor call (08) 9516 1806
