Chiropractic Care in Gisborne Whataupoko

Are you looking for a chiropractor in Gisborne, Whataupoko? Choosing a health care provider is a big decision. At Jackson Chiropractic we believe that education is a big part of our patients success. This article about chiropractic will give you some of the basic knowledge you need to understand what we can do for you, but this entire website is dedicated to helping you understand the full scope of what our team can do.

We hope you find this information helpful and as always please feel free to contact us with any questions that you have.The vast majority of the public equates chiropractic with back pain, but the circumstances under which the science was discovered actually had little to do with back pain. The first chiropractic adjustment was performed on a deaf man resulting in the restoration of his hearing. DD Palmer believed that many conditions could be addressed by removing pressure from the nerve that was involved with the affected area. He proceeded to make it his life’s work, turning this belief into the science of chiropractic.

Health Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Those that have been dealing with chronic pain or have been injured are not the only individuals who should seek chiropractic care in Gisborne. The benefits of chiropractic care can be realized for many people with any variety of health conditions. Even those relatively “healthy” individuals with few, if any, health conditions can see the benefits of chiropractic maintenance care. The impact of life’s daily grind adds up stressing the human body in far greater ways than you might realize. Regular chiropractic adjustments can restore and maintain balance within, allowing the innately intelligent human body to heal itself, leaving you better prepared to live life to its fullest.

Regardless of one’s walk in life, anyone can benefit greatly from regular chiropractic care. Routine chiropractic treatments will help maintain the body at the high level of activity life calls for, allowing the body to self-heal through proper alignment. Your spinal column serves as a conduit through which the human brain sends messages through and out to the body's nervous system. It is simple to see how protecting the integrity of this important structure, through regular visits to Jackson Chiropractic is vital to the body’s optimal function and overall health.

Chiropractic – Scientifically Explained

If you are looking for a scientific explanation of how chiropractor works this paragraph is for you. A concise scientific explanation of chiropractic is that adjustments directly affect musculoskeletal structures, by reducing pain and increasing joint motion.

Musculoskeletal structures include ligaments, muscles, joints, joint capsules and surrounding myofascial tissues. Aside from this direct benefit, the autonomic nervous system is indirectly effected by the down regulation of the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight system), and promotion of the para-sympathetic nervous system (rest and repair system).

This is done through the effects the chiropractic adjustments have on the joint capsules, and the body’s proprioception mechanism (sense of where one is space) through the mechanoreceptors (provide information regarding mechanical changes within the body) in the joints and periarticular tissues (tissue surrounding the joint).

That's a lot to take in, but it is the explanation as to why some chiropractic patients report improvement in organic function, not only musculoskeletal benefits.  To reiterate, this is not a claim that chiropractic adjustments treat systemic pathology, but does suggest that some who have systemic symptoms may see results from chiropractic care even without the presence of pain.
