I go to a Chiropractor but what does 'Chiropractic' mean?

Firstly, to explain how this tricky word is pronounced - you say it like 'cai-ro-practor'. Like Cairo, the capital of Egypt. 

Dr. Google's definition suggests that chiropractic is a system of complementary medicine based on the diagnosis and manipulative treatment of misaligned of joints, especially those of the spine, which are believed to cause other disorders by affecting the nerves, muscles, and organs. 

Cromwell Chiropractic's definition believes that Dr. Google is correct in that we offer a complimentary health care that focuses on restoring your health by working with the spine and nervous system to correct joint dysfunction. This dysfunction may be compromising your nervous system and in turn causing symptoms and discomfort. When there is joint dysfunction present that is interfering with your nervous system your chiropractor will 'adjust' the joint with a specific corrective force. This will enable your body to begin the healing process. 

You don’t need to be in pain to see a chiropractor as your examination show us where the area of dysfunction are and hopefully correct it before it becomes symptomatic. This allows your body to function at its full potential.

If you want to find out how your body is functioning, call us today to book an assessment.
