Orner Wellness Clinic Chiropractic
Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts that specialises in all things natural, especially the correction of the spine by manual therapy (adjustments) of what chiropractors call biomechanical disorders of the spine. Structure affects function, and in particular, the misalignment of the spine causes nerve interference which in turn affects other parts of the body, including the internal organs. Adjustments correct the nerve interference and hence any pain.
The physiological unit that concerns chiropractic is the join complex consisting of the bones with cartilage covered ends, ligaments that help keep the joint together and give it strength, and tendons, the fibrous ends of the muscle that work to move the joint. Pain in a joint can be caused by numerous events including muscle spasms that can lock a joint, arthritis that causes the wearing away of the cartilage, injury to a joint.
Nerve interference may cause or be caused by internal organ problems, so, by using either physical techniques or reflexology, both the organ problems and the nerve interference may be solved.
Muscle imbalances can cause body alignment imbalances leading to joint malfunction.. A problem in one part of the body may have its cause in another part of the body, so careful diagnostics are required to heal a complaint.
