Many people in Hazelwood Park, East Adelaide have the idea that chiropractic care is just a way to treat back and neck pain. Our job at Burnside Chiropractic is to help you improve you overall health and wellness.
Every function of your body is controlled by your central nervous system, and this function can be disrupted by misalignments in your spine. These are called subluxations. A subluxation creates interference in the function of your spinal nerves, and this can result in impaired functioning of your organs and endocrine system.
The WHO (World Health Organisation) definition of a subluxation in the context of chiropractic care is:
A lesion or dysfunction in a joint or motion segment in which alignment, movement integrity and/or physiological function are altered, although contact between joint surfaces remains intact. It is essentially a functional entity, which may influence biomechanical and neural integrity.
Chiropractic adjustments are simply a way to remove that interference and restore the natural function of your body. Chiropractic is truly about prevention.
