Chiropractic focuses on the structure and function of the spine and skeletal system and the impact these joints have on the way your body functions. Your nervous system controls and coordinates every cell, tissue and organ in your body. Your spine protects your nervous system and allows movement and flexibility. When your spine loses normal motion or position it can affect the way your nerves work and interfere with normal daily activities which can lead to poor health. 

There are many things that can be done to support your spine and maintain heathy range of motion. 

 1.      Stay active.Movement is important. Gentle walking even as you are on the escalator helps.

If you experience pain or loss of movement that doesn’t resolve within a few days seek advice. If you have had chronic pain you may be eligible for Medicare by referral by your GP.
