Are you suffering with aches and pain? Or is your body restricting you in some way? Have you ever wondered how you could prevent your problems from developing in the first place? Could Chiropractic be your answer?
My name is Dr Kirsten Stockman and I’m your local Chiropractor. I have recently set part of my clinic up from the Westbank Healthy Living Centre in Exminster. I offer a wide range of different Chiropractic techniques to suit every ones needs. From babies through to the elderly Chiropractic can help the whole family stay healthy.
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you all to Chiropractic. One of the biggest miss conceptions about Chiropractor’s is that we just treat back problems, this isn’t so. Chiropractors can help with problems throughout the entire body.
What is Chiropractic and how it works?
A Chiropractor is a highly qualified and trained musculoskeletal and spinal specialist who has undertaken a 4-year degree program.
Chiropractors work by finding and treating (Adjusting) misaligned joints and areas of tension in one’s body (Subluxations). These areas can exist in muscles, joints, ligaments and organs. When tension builds up in the body, this causes inflammation to develop and therefore pain, discomfort and other symptoms affecting health.
The Subluxation (tension) interferes with how nerves work and this has an effect on the nervous system. The nervous system is the control system for your body and is made up of your brain, spinal cord and all the peripheral nerves. Without a nervous system your body would not function or communicate with itself and this will result in ill health as repair, recovery and healing progresses are lessened.
A Chiropractor will treat the problematic area, for example Head, Back, Neck, Shoulder, Knee, Hip, whilst also realigning the rest of the body and freeing it of Subluxations. It is then able to heal and correct problems, reducing inflammation and therefore getting rid of pain/discomfort and other symptoms affecting the whole body. Treatment at first is focused on relieving symptoms, suffering and increasing movement with the bigger picture to improve your overall health to prevent reoccurrence.
