The Chiropractors at Northcote Chiropractic primarily assess the alignment (posture) and movement of the spine and carry out muscle, orthopaedic and neurological tests to highlight any areas of the spine and / or the nervous system that are not functioning optimally. As well as the joints of the spine, our Chiropractors at Northcote Chiropractic may also assess the function of other joints in your body including but not limited to shoulders, knees, elbows, ankles etc.
The reason our Chiropractors are so interested in your spine is because as well as allowing you to be upright and flexible, it also has the major role of protecting your nervous system. Your nervous system is your body’s main control system, regulating organs (such as the heart, lungs and digestive organs), glands, blood vessels and even the immune system.
Areas of joint and nervous system dysfunction may or may not be accompanied by pain or symptoms and can therefore go unnoticed. Our Chiropractors use their hands to make specific adjustments to the spine and body.
Our Chiropractors also aim to restore normal function to the spine and nervous system in order to restore health, alleviate pain / symptoms (where applicable), improve and maintain mobility and prevent future problems.
At Northcote Chiropractic, our Chiropractors believe in a natural approach to health care and do not use drugs or surgery.
