Chiropractic’s fundamental principle is the prevention and restoration of health problems related to the musculoskeletal system. This means that any issue possibly caused by the spine or the body’s extremities are the major point of concern for a chiropractor.
Chiropractors work under the understanding that problems in the spine—known as spinal subluxations, when the spine becomes unaligned—can lead to a host of issues throughout the body. This is because the spine is connected to the nervous system.
This connection between the nervous system and the spine can lead to conditions all over the body, such as headaches, migraines, back and neck pain, sciatica, and more. Chiropractors tackle these problems with techniques that work to adjust or mobilise the spine and the body’s extremities. Some of these techniques include Cox Flexion-Distraction, Logan Basic, SOT, and more.
