How Chiropractic Works

 

Chiropractic has been helping people of all ages with a variety of health issues for over a century without the use of drugs or surgery. Chiropractors use the best available evidence from research, the preferences of the patient and their own expertise and personal experience to help your spine and nervous system function optimally.

Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. These important functions are controlled by your central nervous system (brain & spinal cord), and all the nerves of the body. 

Your central nervous system is the control centre for living. Its health and performance determines how we perceive the world around us and how we respond to circumstances, stressors and obstacles which arise.

The skull protects the delicate tissues of the brain. The moving bones of the spine and skull protect the communication pathways of the brain, spinal cord and nerve roots. 

Chiropractic procedures are extremely safe and effective. Our chiropractors work on bodies in all phases of life from newborns one day old to the elderly.

The practitioners at YourBodyWorks assess and perform corrections for the Cranium (skull), spine and extremities. We aim to improve body strength and control of movement.  Our goal is to retrain the body to function more efficiently, thus optimizing health and performance.

 

 

What is Applied Kinesiology?

Throughout the world Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a postgraduate course with the training only offered to registered health professionals. 

AK is a diagnostic system whereby muscle reflex patterns are tested and interpreted by a practitioner to assist in determining appropriate treatment.

The AK Chiropractors at YourBodyWorks address imbalances in Nervous System function via relignment techniques such as spinal adjustments and soft tissue techniques.
