Naprapathic FAQ

How does Naprapathic care work?

Naprapathy is based on the idea of removing imbalances both structural and postural in an effort to allow our body to heal itself.  For this to happen the network of nerves and signals from your brain, down your spinal cord, to the network of nerves must be allowed to flow freely without any interruption.  Naprapaths have the ability and skill to remove these interruptions or misalignments and allow the body to perform as it was meant to.

If you’ve ever been in a car accident, played a sport, fell down or just bumped into something too hard, it’s very possible that you are not functioning at your best due to a misalignment.  While there are many potential mechanical or structural causes for misalignment, there are also chemical reasons. For instance, if you smoke or drink excessively or even just have a poor diet, the chemical issues in your body can eventually cause underlying conditions and disease to appear.

Allowing a Naprapath to get you back on track both chemically and structurally will bring your body back to the proper state it should be in to perform at it’s peak.


Is Naprapathy effective?
Yes. Naprapathic care is safe and effective. One of the biggest reasons people choose Naprapathy over physical therapy or chiropractic, is because they find it a safer and more effective method. Because naprapths focus on stretching the tissues connecting the spine, that are often pulling the spine out of alignment, they prepare the spine well for movement. Spinal adjustments by a naprapath are gentle and not forced and therefore much safer than sudden forceful thrusts delivered by a chiropractor. Because the tissues of the spine have been well prepared and stretched before the spinal adjustments are made, they often last longer and require less frequent treatments.

The extent to which a person can benefit from care varies depending on their problem and how long it has existed. The longer in existance and the greater the severity of the problem, the longer therapy may be necessary in order to see the benefits.

Why should I see a Naprapath?
Seeing a Naprapth is not only for back pain and neck pain. Naprapthic care is an excellent way to keep your body at its peak performance through nutrition, adjustment and overall wellness. In addition, chiropractic care has been known to help a wide range of conditions from fibromyalgia to diabetes.

What is Subluxation?
When a vertebrae becomes misaligned or moves out of its normal position, this is referred to in the naprapthic profession as a subluxation.  Subluxations can be caused by a wide range of issues ranging from a minor slip or bump to a car accident or any sudden trauma.  When a vertebrae is subluxated, it begins to put pressure on nerves, blood vessels and everything around it.  This pressure comes with a price. The subluxation interrupts the natural pathways that the messages sent from the brain need to be clear in order to be completed properly.

What is a Naprapathic adjustment? Is it safe?

Adjustments, or manipulation as they’re sometimes referred to is the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident.

When these vertebrae are out of place, it has an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system.  Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, we can’t function at our peak.

An adjustment is often a pressure from the naprapath utilizing the hands or an instrument to move a vertebrae back into place. This happens with a quick movement and is often without discomfort. You may hear a noise that sounds like you’re cracking your knuckles referred to as joint cavitation. It is the release of gases such as oxygen and nitrogen from the joint.


What can I expect from my visit to a Naprapath?

Going to the Naprapath is a new experience for many of us. Maybe we’ve heard through a friend or have done some research online. It’s possible that you are just fed up with living in pain and it’s time to do something about it. In either case, your first visit to the chiropractor will really be about getting to know the Naprapath and discussing your history, current condition and goals.
