Chiro: What a chiropractor does
Chiro care explained
Chiro, or chiropractic care is about creating a healthy body through the central nervous system. The central nervous system controls every chemical, physical and emotional function in the body. As we go through life we face different types of stressors, from the stress of labor, first falls on a bike, sports injuries or even big emotional and mental stressors.
When the brain and the body are not able to cope with a stressor a block or interference along the nervous system may occur, we call this a spinal subluxation.
Over time subluxations can decrease our bodies ability to function, and may manifest as symptoms, such as neck pain, lower back pain, headaches, sciatica, disc herniations and low immune system. Dysfunction in the body such can be a sign that we have subluxations and we are well overdue for a chiropractic adjustment.

Pre-natal chiro Care
Pre-natal care is an important step both for the mother and the baby. A woman’s body undergoes innumerable changes during pregnancy and many women might experience:
Misalignments in the pelvic area and imbalances in the uterus may contribute to the occurring of subluxations and postural changes. These changes also affect the baby. The uterus attaches to the inner pelvis through ligaments and soft tissues and the mother’s pelvic imbalances create torsions over the ligaments, thus changing the shape of the uterus, and giving less space for the baby to grow. Often, such process can alter the way the fetus is positioned in the mother’s belly, such as transverse or breech.
Chiropractic helps to make more space for your baby to grow and develop healthy.
The role of the chiropractor is to correct subluxations, in order to facilitate the balance in the pregnant woman’s pelvis and help the baby gain more room to grow and develop healthy. Every adjustment is safe and gentle; and all our One Chiropractic Studio chiropractors are trained in the Webster Technique ©, a safe and gentle chiropractic method, specifically for pregnancy.
Regular check-ups throughout pregnancy can help you and your baby reach your maximum potential.
Of course, a more flexible pelvis can help during the delivery process. Women receiving pre-natal chiropractic care reported decreased discomfort during labor while additionally having an easier and safer birth. The baby’s ‘head first’ presentation is fundamental for a natural delivery. Furthermore, adjustments during pregnancy help the mother’s nervous system to maintain proper communication throughout the body and assist the baby’s development. One Chiropractic Studio chiropractors recommend regular check-ups throughout pregnancy to help your family reach your maximum potential.

Frequently Asked Questions
Get honest answers to your top questions about being part of the ONErs family.
Are chiropractors doctors?
A Chiro, or Chiropractor is acquires the title of Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C) after four years of studies. The chiropractic curriculum initially appears similar to a medical degree, although in the last two years students gain practical experience working in the College’s chiropractic centre providing chiropractic care to patients. Some of the chiropractic specific courses include radiology, nutrition and chiropractic care for special populations such as children and the elderly.

Do I need a referral from my medical doctor?
Chiropractic is different than medicine and is natural. We don’t prescribe medications and we work with the body’s ability to self-regulate and heal. Only chiropractors are specifically trained to identify and correct vertebral subluxations, we are experts at what we do.
Fortunately we constantly work in our communities alongside with other healthcare practitioners, in fact if we deem it necessary we will make sure we refer you to another specialist. Many healthcare practitioners and doctors see great value in preventative chiropractic care.
What do adjustments feel like?
The best way to know is to experience it. Our practice members often report instant relieve from tension and being more comfortable in their own body. Nevertheless the best benefits come with time; often times after a few adjustments we might start experiencing increased , energy, increased immune function, clarity of mind, uplifted mood and more. Everybody is different and we all have different health journeys. How would it be like for you? The best way to know is to find out yourself.
Can I adjust myself?
Often times we believe that with time things just ‘come right’. If there are subluxations along the spine, we are likely to feel more ‘tension’ in out body, a sign that we might have subluxations is when we feel like an area needs to ‘crack’ or we want to make it ‘pop’. No, ‘cracking’ our own spine is not an adjustment. Adjustments are specific in a locked up joint and take years to master, a cracking sound can relieve our tension for a while but does not address the cause. Even chiropractors need to get checked by colleagues in order to benefit from care.
What is a Subluxation?
A spinal subluxation has two primary components:
Structural: spinal joints can ‘block’ on top of each other causing a dysfunction in the are, which can be felt due to the fact that are not ‘moving right’
Neurological: ultimately without proper movement of the joint your brain becomes unable to perceive the joints correct position. Therefore interference can occur localised to the area of subluxation by irritating nearby nerves or directly in the brain.
Chiropractic adjustments create specific motion in the dysfunctional joint, thus reducing the your nervous system interference.
Is chiropractic safe?
Chiropractors undergo 5 years of specific and general health training. Part of our education is focused on general anatomy, neurology, philosophy, moving towards more specific spinal clinical presentations, spinal imaging and hands-on time in a clinical setting. Research studies have demonstrated that chiropractic care is safe for adults and the paediatric population. Our ONE approach, is also developed to find the technique that is most suitable for you, from a structural adjustment to a light touch approach. At ONE chiropractic studio we are committed to review and add value to the family by hiring the best principled chiropractors, from the best Colleges around the world. Moreover, we believe the industry and available science keeps evolving, as such we enjoy getting together and keeping up to date with the latest available techniques.
Do you take insurance?
Different insurers cover different insurance plans. Most insurances cover chiropractic care in their plans. we provide a receipt which has a the necessary information that your insurer need to provide you with a reimbursement of services. We can only issue details of services given.
Do you need a spinal check-up?
Most people are totally unaware that they are having spinal subluxations. This is because many spinal nerves do not communicate pain messages since they are not composed of sensitive fibers. Often people come to us when a symptom present, such as neck pain, lower back pain, headaches or more; this could be a sign that the body has been dysfunction for a period of time. Because subluxations occur gradually over time, the best way to know is to schedule a preliminary spinal check, where we can determine whether or not we can help you.
