    Chiropractors commonly see a variety conditions, headaches, lower back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, joint injuries, posture, general health and well being. Some clients often may continue with care  after pain as part of there strategy to stay healthy. Reasons for this include the sensation and great feeling of relaxation, increased mobility correct firing of neurological systems and decrease in stress hormones.

    this is a great question and the reasons that people seek chiropractic care are varied depending on the individual.
    some people go because they have an ache or a niggle.  others because they have an acute sporting injury.  others because they have a postural problem.  So these people are seeking chiropractic care for a symptom.
    Many people are going to chiropractors now because they recognize chiropractic care like exercise can be considered part of a healthy lifestyle.  With the increase in chronic diseases, taking care of your spine is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle.  People with good posture are happier and healthier.

    The reason most patients first consult their chiroprcator are symptom related. Conditions such as low back pain, sciatica, neck pain, headaches, shoulder pain, hip and knee pain respond very well to modern chiroprcatic care.

    Some patients only have chiroprcatic care  for symptom relief others maintain their chiropractic care as part of the healthy lifestyle to achive the best possible quality of life.
