Our Chiropractic Care & Recommendations
Our care and recommendations are based on the premise that:
- The balance of your spine and nervous system is crucial to your overall health.
- Pain and poor posture are sometimes symptoms of imbalance in the spine and nervous system (subluxation).
- Chiropractic adjustments can improve the balance of your spine and nervous system, decrease your pain and increase your chances of better overall health, now and in the future.
- Most people need support (Chiropractic or other bodyworkers) to keep their spine and nervous system balanced.
- To get well and stay well, our recommendations focus on balancing four areas; Nutrition, Structure, Exercise, Well-being.
Our bodies were designed to function for a lifestyle that was 50,000 years ago. At Chiropractic Balance have developed ways to adapt how we move, eat and think in the modern world to be more congruent with these ancestral ways.

THE SCIENCE OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE
Patients who seek out chiropractic care do so for a variety of reasons, they are seeking help with alleviating back or leg pain caused by an injury or trauma, avoiding and reducing headaches and migraines, reducing the symptoms of carpal tunnel, and a variety of other issues.
By aligning the spine and correcting issues with posture, balance, and correcting their proprioception, which affects issues within the inner ear and affects our spatial awareness, chiropractors can help reduce joint pain and soreness in the surrounding muscle and tissue.
Because chiropractic care is non-invasive, it is often seen as a preferred alternative to medication or invasive surgery because it can help many patients find solace from their joint and muscle pain.
What's New at Chiropractic Balance?
Are low fat products making us healthier?
If you were born between 1950 and 1990, you are most likely a victim of the ‘low-fat era’.
It all started in 1977 when the New Zealander government started telling people to eat less fat, and soon other countries followed suit. By the mid-80’s low-fat diets were gaining in popularity, with enough interest to fuel the birth of an entire ‘low-fat’ industry. By the 90’s, eating full fat products was frowned upon almost as much as smoking cigarettes.
The idea behind this mass marketing was that an excess of dietary FAT was causing obesity, type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Therefore it was hypothesized that a reduction in FAT would reverse these problems.
The interesting thing is that up until 1980, obesity rates were around 13%. By the late 1980’s, they had shot up to 25%. Today it’s 35%. And the heart disease and diabetes statistics show the same increasing trend.
