What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the structure and function of your body.

The structure of your body (your musculoskeletal system) is made up of the spine, skull and pelvis. Your internal organs also function within that structure and are affected by it. Your nervous system is made up of your brain and kilometres of nerves that travel throughout the body. The nervous system facilitates coordinated function within your body.

The spine, skull and pelvis are vital for movement and the protection of the nervous system.

If your spine isn’t able to move in all the many directions it may impact on the health of the joints, the nervous system and/or your ability to function to your full potential resulting in an increased risk of injury or illness.

The main principle underpinning Chiropractic is that your body is a self-healing, self-regulating organism. Your body depends on your nervous system being able to send messages between the brain and the body. When these messages are interrupted the brain may not make the most ideal decisions. This impacts your health. It’s similar to talking on the phone with poor reception. You may or may not be able to communicate clearly.

Chiropractic is vital to restore proper nervous system flow and to build and maintain optimal health.

Village Chiropractic recognises the important role the Manly community plays in our general health.

Village Chiropractic is a pillar of Manly’s healthy lifestyle community. As a result of this commitment you will see us out and about involved with sharing the healthy lifestyle message.

We walk our talk.

Your environment will directly affect your health but you can also shape your environment to create a positive place. As part of our commitment to helping our practice members to live a healthier life, at Village Chiropractic we want to teach you how to be the creator of your own health promoting environment, how to shape it so it has a positive impact on your health. A huge component of your wellbeing can be attributed to your community. The people that you interact with and the space in which you spend your time physically and virtually will impact on your general health.

We’ve created a unique community within our practice but also really enjoy being part of Manly’s vibrant scene.

Just outside our door are an array of incredible Cafe’s and restaurants serving delicious, healthy and inspiring food as well as incredible coffee. The mix of holiday makers, local businesses, retailers, entrepreneurs, young families and athletes makes our little block a great place to visit. The positive atmosphere of Manly adds to the chiropractic experience. Catching up with friends after your adjustment at Village Chiropractic is a great idea. We love it when old mates and family members accidentally bump into each other in our practice.
