Why Chiropractic?

Norwest Chiro circuit breaker why chiropractic

You were designed to be extraordinary.


The big idea starts with an understanding that you live your life through your Central Nervous System. The brain is the master controller of our body.

Put simply, your brain is like the power source with a fuse box. If you blow a fuse (misalignment of spinal segment) you lose power to part of your house (organs/muscles etc).

A chiropractor is there to check the fuse box, and reset the fuses if necessary. Whether it is felt or not, we are always better off with all the power switched on.

That is why, a healthy, clear, 100% functioning spine and nerve system is vitally important as we go through every age and stage of life. Maintaining our spine and nerve system throughout life is a very big idea.

Our services

Corrective Chiropractic Care

We specialize in improving the function of the nervous system by correcting spinal shape, spinal abnormalities, and improper posture. We often improve forward head posture, energy levels, and our response to stress.

Wellness Chiropractic Care

Beyond spinal and posture correction, our team will continue to show clients how to achieve greater levels of health and wellness through ongoing lifestyle checks, expert health advice and preventative wellness adjustments.

Injury Care

We can help you recover from injuries and accidents. As an ACC registered provider we can help you restore function and a higher state of health and performance. No need to see your doctor first for ACC.
