How does it work
The World Health Organisation recognises Chiropractic as a health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal ( Nerve, muscle and skeletal) system and the effects of these disorders on general health. There is an emphasis on manual techniques, including joint adjustment and/or manipulation, with a particular focus on the subluxation.
Spinal bones can become restricted or misaligned – this is what is called a vertebral subluxation complex or more simply a subluxation.
Subluxated joints can be responsible for applying pressure or irritation to nerves leading to tingling, numbness or pain but could be so subtle that they cause no symptoms at all. Chiropractors are specifically trained to identify the presence of subluxations. Although it takes years to develop the sensitive touch to locate subluxations, you are likely to recognise them if they are pointed out to you.
The treatment carried out by chiropractor Morten Westergaard will help to reduce the pressure and irritation on your nerves, taking away the interference so your body can do what it needs to do.
