What Is Chiropractic?
At Coolum Family Chiropractic we recognise the body’s ability to heal and maintain itself. A lack of health (which you may experience as back or neck pain, headaches etc.) can occur if your body’s control centre, the nervous system, is not functioning properly. Often this is the result of subluxation or misalignment in the spine. Chiropractic focuses on finding and eliminating subluxation/misalignment to allow your body to function and feel better. Our chiropractors each have over 18 years experience in Australia and overseas.
At Coolum Family Chiropractic we are committed to assessing the individual needs of each person. We offer advise on nutrition, exercise and lifestyle to allow you the best chance of enjoying great health. We use a variety of techniques which allows us to tailor the care for each individual, from newborns to the elderly.
We believe that Chiropractic care helps to restore normal function. When your body is functioning normally, you have to feel better, as simple as that. This is why chiropractic is so successful at treating a variety of ailments, because we do not treat any ailments! We simply help your body to function at it’s best!
We aim to work with people and families who desire better overall health and wellbeing to develop a healthier, happier, more positive community. The World Health Organisation defines health as ‘Optimum physical, social and emotional wellbeing, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.’ Whilst we certainly help people in getting relief from specific conditions, our goal for everyone is better overall health and wellbeing, after all, who doesn’t want to get the most out of life!
Your Nervous System
The brain is the computer that controls and coordinates all cell, organ and system function in your body. The communication channels between the brain and body is via spinal nerves that exit the spinal column. Interference to these pathways affects the clarity of the nerve signal and reduces the end organ function. This creates a state of imbalance. Prolonged periods of cellular imbalance may lead to the development of disease.
Only Chiropractors are specialised in the detection and correction of spinal subluxations. Chiropractic care as part of a healthy lifestyle will ensure your nerve system is functioning at an optimum level.
