What is Chiropractic?

When you are in pain you just want to make it go away.  The chiropractors at Back-in-Action Preston are part of a primary healthcare profession that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of problems with joints, muscles, ligaments and nerves. These can cause pain and may influence the function of the wider nervous system. Working on all the joints of the body, concentrating particularly on the spine, chiropractors use their hands to make often gentle, specific adjustments (manipulations) and other joint and soft-tissue therapies, as well as giving exercises, and health and lifestyle counselling, to help support the body’s natural ability to heal.

What’s involved with Chiropractic Treatment at Back-in-Action in Preston?

The primary aim of chiropractic care given at Back-in-Action is to help restore the balance and symmetry of the body’s structure and function, in order to reduce pain and optimise and maintain health. To do this we try to help reduce the physical, chemical and nervous system stresses that we find. The nervous system is particularly important as this directs and integrates the action of all the body’s systems including the: muscles, joints, organs, immune system and general healing.

How does Chiropractic Treatment Work?

There are sensors in our joints, muscles, ligaments and skin which provide information for our body position sense. This system can influence the response of our muscles. If muscles don’t react with enough speed or strength the body can be suddenly or gradually damaged.

Abnormal function, position or injury can cause a persistent disturbed sensory feedback to the central nervous system which may result in the feeling of pain and other problems.

Chiropractic treatments seek to establish the normal function of joints, muscles, ligaments, nerves and other soft tissues throughout the body, to help restore normal feedback and function of these structures, to assist healing and reduce pain.

Because the sensors in the joints and muscles act like batteries for the brain and the brain controls many of the processes in the body important for health, sometimes chiropractic treatment appears to help other milder health conditions.
