A naturopath utilizes conventional medical assessment and laboratory diagnostics combined with a broad range of alternative modalities. Naturopathic Medicine is a vital component of health care of which treatments can be utilized on their own or concurrently with conventional health care. Naturopathic Medicine focuses on the disease process in comparison to isolating it as an entity.
The ability of our bodies to move and perform all the demands we put on it require complex co-ordination of our muscles. This is developed as we grow from a newborn to an adult, becoming effortless after we are only a few years old.
A Chiropractic adjustment or manipulation is a manual procedure that utilizes the highly refined skills developed during four intensive years of chiropractic education. The chiropractor typically uses his/her hands to manipulate the joints of the body, particularly the spine, in order to reduce pain, and restore or enhance joint function.
In a healthy person muscles work in a coordinated manner to help produce simple to complex movements. With overuse and injury those same muscles loose their normal coordination and switch to a protective role. Those muscles will tighten or spasm to protect itself or nearby joint from any movements that might cause excessive movement to the injured area.
