About Chiropractic Care

What is chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a health discipline that seeks to improve health and well-being relating to the musculoskeletal system and nervous system.

Chiropractors are university-trained healthcare professionals who seek to ease pain and enhance function using natural methods, hands-on treatments or education about lifestyle change.

What is a chiropractic adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment (also known as spinal manipulation) is a common chiropractic treatment. Using our hands or a small instrument, we apply sudden, controlled force to your joints or spine to help ease your pain or improve your joint mobility. You might benefit from a chiropractic adjustment if you:

  • Joint stiffness
  • Soft tissue injuries.

Soft tissue injuries may happen when you:

  • Fall and land heavily
  • Lift something too heavy or using the wrong technique
  • Sit hunched over your keyboard or staring down at your phone for a long time.

Injured tissues undergo physiological changes that may result in inflammation, pain and diminished function. Chiropractic adjustment of the affected joint and tissues helps to restore mobility, relieve muscle tightness and promote tissue healing.

How does chiropractic care work?

Your first visit at Bodyline Health may involve:

  • Discussion of your health history
  • A physical examination
  • Tests and onsite X-ray, conducted on the same day at our clinic (where necessary).

If you’re having a chiropractic adjustment, you’ll be asked to lie down on a comfortable, padded table in a certain position (often facedown).

Your chiropractor will then use their hands to push your joint beyond its usual range of motion using sudden, controlled force. You may hear cracking or ‘popping’ sounds but don’t worry – these are normal during treatment.

While most people tolerate a chiropractic adjustment quite well, you may experience minor side effects such as tenderness, headaches or fatigue.
