Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Demands from sport, occupation or sedentary lifestyles can exert strain on our bodies through static postures and repetitive motions over time. Much like the engine in a car, should one area of the body start to falter the other parts work overtime in order to compensate. This can result in breakdown and ultimately, bodily injury. Athletic injuries tend to result from direct impact, poor training practices, lack of conditioning or insufficient warm-up and stretching, amongst others. These factors, in addition to changes to the cells and mechanics of the supporting tissue, can result in chronic pain and propagate future injury.
