Chiropractic is a science, art, and philosophy that studies the relationship between the nervous system and the health of the body.

Since its discovery in 1895 the fundamental principles upon which chiropractic is based have changed very little. However, what has changed is the levels of skill and knowledge that today’s chiropractors possess. Over recent years, the training of chiropractors has evolved to the highest of standards. 

Chiropractors now lead the way in an approach to health care that focuses on facilitating the full expression of each individual’s inborn potential. Your chiropractor achieves this end with natural, safe and gentle techniques delivered with the intention of restoring, maintaining and then optimizing nervous system function.

Prevention is better than a cure.

At Norris Place Chiropractic, we believe that prevention is better than a cure. We believe that being proactive and committed to being your best is the key to achieving balance, wellness and the highest quality of life.

Your chiropractor’s primary goal is to ensure that the complex “communication superhighway” within the spinal column – called the nervous system – is able to relay information accurately back and forth between all parts of the body and the brain.

This is achieved by restoring, maintaining and then optimizing the function of your back and neck, which together are referred to as the spinal column.

About Chiropractic Care, St. Catharines Chiropractor

Having a free flow of information across your nervous system is proving to be increasingly important to healthy living, according to many research findings.

Studies have shown that the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems are so interconnected that they are better thought of as one system – over which the central nervous component is the master controller. With this understanding, your chiropractor believes the traditional separation of mental processes from the body is invalid. 

Body and mind are connected in the healing process.

By having your spinal and nervous system function at or near peak performance your body is allowed to express fully it’s inborn ability to heal and you are more likely to achieve unity of body, mind and spirit. 

In this way your body is given the best chance of healing itself and you have the best opportunity to express and experience life to it’s fullest.

Such natural healing is the product of what your chiropractor calls inborn, or innate, intelligence.
