CHIROPRACTIC WELLNESS CENTRE
Benefits of Chiropractic wellness care can be seen in a variety of health conditions. In today’s fast-paced world, most of us put our bodies through a lot of stress and regular chiropractic adjustments can help restore balance within the body.
Your spine is designed as a casing of wires that relays information from the brain to the rest of the body. These wires also send signals from all parts of your body to the brain. Much like the wires, different nerves in the spine control different areas of the body and thus requires the utmost care and maintenance.

Healthmedica Chiropractic technique is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure.

What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a health profession that focuses on treatment and preventive care related to the neuro-musculoskeletal problems, especially the spine, via a non-invasive and non-surgical method. The main chiropractic treatment technique is spinal adjustment and mobilization, to improve function and provide pain relief. At Healthmedica, Chiropractic wellness care is not complete without health and lifestyle counseling.
Is Chiropractic Safe?
Chiropractic has an excellent safety record. It is widely known as one of the safest, non-invasive and drug-free treatment available for back pain, neck pain, headaches and other neuro-musculoskeletal conditions. Chiropractic adjustment is safe when performed by a Doctor of Chiropractic who is trained and licensed to deliver chiropractic care.
However, no health care treatment is completely free of potential adverse effects. Even the common OTC medicines carry some amount of risk. Patients mostly experience immediate relief following an adjustment, however, some parents may experience temporary soreness, stiffness or slight swelling. These side effects from spinal adjustments, if any, are temporary and minor.
