Chiropractic is founded on the fact that the nervous system regulates and controls all functions of the body.
We all live our life through our nervous system because all our senses, emotions and thoughts are regulated by our brains.
The nervous system consists of the brain, spinal cord, nerve roots and all of the nerves in the body. The spinal nerves exit between each of the 24 bones (vertebrae) of the spinal column. If any of these bones lose their normal function and alignment through trauma or injury, interference to the nervous system can occur causing pain or ill health, and we call this the vertebral subluxation complex.
The Gonstead System
Gonstead Chiropractors assess and analyse the spine to determine any subluxations (spinal joint dysfunction) and restore proper joint motion.
We have helped many people with various health conditions because they too had vertebral subluxations.
The chiropractors role will be to adjust subluxated spinal joints back to their best position and restore joint motion. To remove any nerve interference and associated symptoms. Every adjustment is tailored to you specifically.
We know that for you to get the best results from your chiropractic care we need to work together.
How quickly you heal will depend on many factors like how much stress you are dealing with. Your age, young people and children seem to heal quickly. How long you have had your problem. Are you eating well and getting enough good sleep.
Most people understand that healing is a process that takes time. Your body can’t rush this process. We allow your body time to heal. We want you to recover as quickly as you can. And when you have recovered we will give you advice about how to avoid any possible relapses in the future.
