What is Chiropractic?
chiropractic (Noun.) [ kahy-ruh-prak-tik ] | chi-ro-prac-tic
Chiropractic is a health-care profession that focuses on patients’ spine
and nervous system as the foundation of their health and well-being
via non-surgical and non-medicinal approach.
The word ‘Chiropractic’ means “to practice by hand” in Greek.
With a combined 40+ years of experience, our Chiropractors
aim to bring your spine back to its proper alignment and help you
reach your full health potential.
Why is Chiropractic important?
Our nervous system controls and coordinates every function of our body. When the bones of the spine get out of position, or subluxated, spinal nerves can get pinched or irritated, affecting the ability of our nervous system to function properly. These subluxations will often lead to the development of various symptoms. A Chiropractic adjustment aims at realigning the spine and correcting subluxations, thereby resulting in alleviation of the symptoms and allowing our nervous system to function properly and heal the body naturally.

Why is good posture important?
Having good sitting posture is vital to maintaining good health,
especially in your office where you are subconsciously stuck for hours.
One of the most common pain is neck & back pains due to incorrect sitting posture;
to alleviate these symptoms, try to keep your neck naturally in a relaxed position
with your lower back closely leaned onto your backrest, it is advisable to keep the top of monitor of your screen at or slightly below eye level as this will not force your neck
to go down to the level of your screen, causing unavoidable strain on your neck and back.
It also allows full capacity of your lungs because of the free expansion of your chest muscles
that is unconstrained by poor posture.
This may seem simple but small steps goes a long way especially to maintain a healthier and
more productive you and at the same time thwart degeneration from escalating.
The best way to avoid office related tensions & pains, like neck or lower back pain,
is to keep an upright posture (as seen in the image below).
