Our Philosophy at Port Arthur Chiropractic Centre

Your Body is a Self Healing, Self Regulating Organism
Your Nervous System is the master system in your body that controls all other systems

Holding woman's armChiropractic is a safe and natural form of health care. It focuses on the body’s ability to heal itself. When your body is functioning properly, it has a tremendous ability to regulate and correct its own problems. It controls all cells, tissues and organs in an effort to optimize its performance. Your spinal cord acts like a “highway” for your nerve messages. Nerve messages are relayed between your brain and every cell in your body. This allows your body to regulate itself and repair damage. Chiropractic care focuses on optimizing your body’s own ability to heal by removing any interference in the “nerve highway”.

Chiropractors are Spine Specialists

It takes years of post-secondary schooling to understand the complexity of the spine. Chiropractors are spine specialists. They understand how your spine works, what can go wrong and how each vertebra, disc and nerve relate to your health and well-being. When spinal vertebrae are out of alignment or restricted they can cause irritation to the delicate spinal nerves. This irritation can block messages or cause messages to be transmitted incorrectly.

Through gentle, specific adjustments chiropractors can create mobility in areas of your spine restricted and realign vertebrae which are out of position, thereby removing or reducing nerve interference.

Prevention & Wellness

In chiropractic the focus is on your overall wellness instead of specific diseases, conditions or pains. Chiropractors look at how your spine relates to your health and try to create an environment where your body can function optimally. Chiropractic care strongly emphasizes prevention. By helping you maintain a healthy spine and optimizing your body’s health, chiropractic helps prevent existing health concerns from becoming more serious, painful or debilitating.

Natural. No Medications

Chiropractic care does not include medications or prescription drugs. Your body has an incredible ability to regulate and release chemicals as required and chiropractic care attempts to maximize that ability. Medications can cover up important symptoms. Headaches, neck pain and back pain can be symptoms that something is wrong. Medications may provide temporary relief but they often do not address the underlying problem. The medication wears off and the pain returns. Chiropractic care focuses on addressing the cause of the pain as opposed to addressing the pain itself.
