What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a natural approach to better health. It is based on the science and philosophy of recognising and respecting the body's innate healing ability. Chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the spine and the nervous system. A healthy spine is essential for optimal health and wellbeing!
What causes a Subluxation?
Stressors! Things that cause tension to the body or alter the state of balance. Stress can be categorised into three types:
- Car accidents
- Sport injuries
- Prolonged 'abnormal' postures
- Repetitive overuse movements or positions
- And the BIRTH process.
- Cigarette smoke
- Environmental pollutants
- Electro Magnetic Radiation
- Work pressure
- Peer pressure
- Relationship drama
- Financial worry
What is a Chiropractic Adjustment and is it safe?
Adjustments are a specific, non-invasive force or motion applied to the spine to restore movement, improve function and stimulate the nervous system. Adjustments are very safe. The New Zealand Government's "Commission of Inquiry into Chiropractic" concluded that; "spinal adjusting is a vital, very safe and clinically effective form of health care".
Chiropractors have more thorough training in spinal mechanics and spinal care than any other health professional. Furthermore, chiropractic is scientifically based. Techniques vary from chiropractor to chiropractor and are tailored to each patient. Our Melbourne Chiropractor Dr Diana Pakzamir employs gentle manual adjusting in conjunction with other techniques to ensure a safe and effective adjustment.
Holistic Chiropractic care is Vital for good Health
Chiropractic has been developed around these 4 self-evident truths
2. The nervous system is responsible for coordinating the function of every cell, tissue & organ in the body.
3. Subluxations (spinal misalignment) are the NUMBER 1 cause of interference with the body's inborn or innate intelligence's ability to self heal and self regulate through the nervous system.
4. Chiropractic is the only healing science responsible for locating and correcting subluxations through the Chiropractic Adjustment, thereby restoring the body's ability to heal itself.
"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease." Thomas E Edison

How can Chiropractic help?
Chiropractors specialize in the detection of spinal joint dysfunction and correct it by applying a very specific and controlled force, called a spinal manipulation or spinal adjustment. The spinal manipulation or adjustment helps to release fixation and restore mobility to spinal joints and soft-tissues, and modulate pain signals through the nervous system. An adjustment or manipulation can also be applied to the joints of the arms or legs.
Chiropractors take a holistic approach to treating the patient, recognising that if there is dysfunction in one part of the body a chain-reaction can occur where other areas of the body compensate. They appreciate that the area of the symptom does not always correlate with the area of the problem, and thus look at the structure and function of the body as a whole when diagnosing and treating a patient's complaint.
