We typically seek external help when we are ill or injured, looking to doctors and medication to help us heal. Of course, in many cases, medicine only treats the symptoms of our ailments – without addressing the root cause. This is where chiropractic comes in.
Chiropractic is a complementary mode of health care, an alternative to drugs and surgery that allows the innate restorative nature of the body to heal itself without any drastic intervention. That’s right: your body is a self-healing marvel, controlled by the nervous system. The practice of chiropractic is a safe, natural and effective way to correct misalignments that can interfere with the nervous system’s signals and have a compounded effect on your spine, joints, nerves, muscles and organs.
What exactly is chiropractic and how can it help me?
Chiropractic – for your whole health
Often people are unaware of the holistic health benefits of chiropractic care, believing this practice is limited to treating neck and low back pain. That’s only one aspect of chiropractic! However, the relationship between the spine and the nervous system is a crucial component: the spine encases and protects the nervous system, and the nervous system controls all cellular functions. When this relationship is compromised by spinal abnormalities (known as subluxation) it can irritate the nerves, allowing disease and pain to manifest in the affected cells, tissues and organs.

Chiropractors address the resulting conditions by identifying and correcting the root cause to optimize the body’s ability to heal and thrive. Book a consultation at Live Well Family Chiropractic in Ajax to learn more!
