Welcome to Cambridge Chiropractor for Chiropractic treatment.
What is Chiropractic?
The treatment was founded in the 1890s by D.D.Palmer. Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession that specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of conditions that are due to problems with the joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves of the body, particularly those of the spine.
The cause of a lot of different complaints lies within the spine. When a spinal joint doesn’t move properly, it will have an effect on the surrounding tissues attaching to these joints, like muscles and ligaments. These muscles and ligaments tense up and might cause even more pain. By restoring motion of the spine, using gentle and specific adjustments, the motion of the spine is restored. When motion is restored, joints start to ache less, muscles and ligaments relax and blood flow is increased. So by restoring motion, the body starts to heal itself, like it has done for millions of years. Additionally to manipulative techniques, treatment also consists of exercises and lifestyle counseling. Chiropractic does not involve the use of any drugs or surgery.
