What is Chiropractic medicine?

Chiropractic is a Drug-free, surgery-free solution to pain and lack of mobility. We strive to help patients understand that chiropractic care does not treat pain—rather, it helps to eliminate stress from the nervous system. Your nervous system is running 100% of the time, controlling every aspect of your body, and it is constantly subjected to a variety of stressors.

What does a chiropractor do?

The goal of chiropractic care is to look for those subluxations or trapped nerves, and correct them through chiropractic adjustments. When we remove the stress from your nervous system, it allows communication between your brain and your body to flow freely, keeping every system working properly.

When we correct subluxations (misalignments) in the spine, this relieves stress on the nervous system so that it can function correctly. When your nervous system functions optimally, proper communication between the brain and body is restored, and your body can heal and function as it should.

Most patients come to Spinal Health Chiropractic Centre with neck, back or shoulder pain, and we have excellent results with those conditions. People then often notice that other issues have gotten better, including migraines, headaches and digestive issues.

How long do chiropractic adjustments take?

Adjustments don’t take long. The initial consultation will take roughly 20- 40 minutes to establish what needs to be done, but follow up adjustments typically only take 15-30 minutes.

Is chiropractic painful?

There may be some slight discomfort at the moment of the adjustment, but the feeling is not extreme. There may be some residual aching over the next few days, but this will dissipate and is a good sign. Cracks and pops are to be expected and perfectly safe. The small amount of discomfort pales in comparison to the pain that comes from surgery.

Is chiropractic safe?

Like any medical practice, there are inherent risks associated with chiropractic adjustments. That’s why it’s so important to only be treated by a certified, accredited professional. Our chiropractic doctors are the only two in all of Tanzania that have been trained and certified by American chiropractic schools.

Chiropractic adjustments are ideal treatments for arm pain, leg pain, carpal tunnel syndrome. They are also ideal for headaches, neck pain, and back pain. Chiropractic services treat numbness, radiating pain and injuries. Our Tanzania chiropractors are experts at pregnancy care, sports medicine, whiplash treatment, scoliosis and sciatica treatment,  and treating slip-and-fall accidents.

What is a Chiropractor?

A chiropractor is a doctor who adjusts the spine to improve posture and bring the body into proper alignment. The result is that the muscles, joints and vertebrae work in better harmony for better mobilization and less pain. 

Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic medicine treats a wide range of muscle, bone and joint issues and can replace physical therapy and rehabilitation, increasing mobilization and relieving pain. Spinal manipulation has even been known to help with digestion and other issues. 

How Does Chiropractic Care Work?

Through spine alignment, chiropractic healthcare takes pressure off of your vertebrae and discs, allowing your nervous system to function smoothly. This results in better posture and mobilization, pain relief and other healthcare benefits. 

Conditions Treated by Chiropractors

Pain in the muscles and joints, herniated disc or injured vertebrae, radiating pain in the extremities and other pains and disorders.
