Chiropractic Care

At Chiropractic One in Liverpool, people come to see us for a number of reasons.

  1. For relief of symptoms(aches,pains and dysfunction)
  2. To correct and rehabilitate long standing spinal problems
  3. As one component of their overall approach to better health 

Let’s take a brief look at how your body works.

Your body is a self-regulating,self-healing organism. These important functions are contolled by your brain and spinal cord via your body’s complex nervous system. Your brain and nerves continuously monitor and co-ordinate everything that is happening in your body.

The skull protects your brain.The moving bones of your spine protect the spinal cord and nerve roots.A lack of movement or abnormal motion of the spinal joints may interfere with the normal function of your nervous system. Chiropractors refer to this as “subluxation” or spinal misalignment. Subluxations  cause distorted communication between the brain and parts of your body which ultimately leads to many health problems.

At Chiropractic One in Liverpool instead of using drugs or surgery, your Chiropractor will utilize state of the art technology,specific testing protocols and their expertise to locate these subluxations. They will then implement a series of spinal adjustments, postural techniques and rehabilitative exercises within the framework of the C.R.I.S program to correct,reduce and prevent these subluxations. 

What is an adjustment?

A Chiropractic adjustment is the skilled use of delivering a specific force in a precise direction to a joint that is restricted or not moving correctly. This adds motion to the joint,helping to gradually restore proper alignment. The purpose of this safe and natural procedure is to allow normal spinal function,improve nervous system regulation and consequently produce a better health outcome.

There are many ways to adjust the spine. Chiropractors may use their hands; or have the aid of specialised adjusting tables or use hand held instruments. Which technique is chosen is dependent on your individual circumstances-an elderly woman, an elite footballer and a baby will require very different approaches.

After years of university training and clinical experience, each Chiropractor becomes highly skilled in the delivery of a variety of adjusting techniques.
