Chiropractic focuses on the body’s relationship between structure (spine) and function (nervous system) and how that relationship affects your health. The nervous system has a vital role in regulating all functions of the body, co-ordinating millions of messages to and from your brain and body. Everyday activities may cause stress to your nerve system and spine that in turn interfere with nerve pathways and your overall wellbeing. Nerve interference (Chiropractic or Vertebral Subluxation) is a biomechanical dysfunction of the spine and often may present as pain, swelling, altered blood flow, muscle tension, reduced spinal movement and resultant nerve dysfunction.
Chiropractic is the science of locating the areas of spine and nervous system interference and chiropractic adjustments, gently applied to correct these areas return the balance to your spine and nervous system. Chiropractic adjustments deliver a specific controlled movement to the involved spinal segment that restores normal joint movement and specifically aims to remove nervous system interference. Restoring normal joint movement of the spinal segment restores the normal relationship between the structure and function of the body.

What to Expect
On your first visit you will meet your Chiropractor who will take a detailed history of your health, including any presenting complaints and will perform a thorough examination. Your Chiropractor will advise you if any further tests are required and depending on your case care may begin (where clinically safe) at this time.
On your second visit your Chiropractor will discuss the findings from your initial consultation. Your Chiropractor will explain what we have found from your examination and what is seen on your x-rays (when taken). Your report consultation begins with an explanation on the role and value of our spine and nervous system and how it affects you. Your chiropractor will provide you with an individualised recommended care plan that may also include home care advice that can also assist your healing.
At Connect Chiropractic we take the time to ensure all of your questions are answered before beginning any care. At the beginning of any care schedule it’s important for us to discuss your health goals and expectations so we understand how to serve you best.
Following your report consultation your subsequent visits will be advised by your chiropractor from your findings report. Your chiropractic adjustments visits will be scheduled in advance on days and times that suit you and we ensure your progress is on track through scheduled progress examinations periodically that check your progress and health and wellness goals are being achieved.
