Resolving Health Challenges and Changing Lives

Queanbeyan chiropractor Dr Marcus Chacos and his team focus on restoring your body’s innate healing power with natural vitalistic healthcare.

The nervous system governs all healing within the body. When there is interference with this all-important system, the body can’t work at its optimum levels. By removing these interferences, your body can regenerate and operate at its peak performance.

A Healing Art Dating Back to Ancient Times

The history of chiropractic dates as far back as ancient China, Egypt and Greece. Ancient records show that practitioners performed techniques on the spine, giving pain relief. However, it wasn’t until 1895 that a man called David Palmer began making these techniques more widely known.

Palmer made a simplefavicon adjustment to the neck of a deaf man, Harvey Lillard, and it restored his hearing. Thinking he had found a cure, Palmer continued adjusting deaf people. Although he didn’t reproduce the same results as he had with Harvey, Palmer did notice that his patients were experiencing less pain, fatigue, headaches and other symptoms they had reported before treatment.

This ancient technique was named chiropractic, translated from the Greek meaning “done by hand”. The single basic premise of chiropractic is that all living things have an inborn or innate healing ability that works constantly to maintain our health, or heal us when we’re injured or diseased.


How Chiropractic Works

Old drawing of spineDr Marcus and his team of chiropractors seek to remove interference to the function of your spine and peripheral joints, restoring normal movement. The appropriate nerve signals can then be sent via the spinal cord to the rest of the body, allowing normal function of all muscles, bones and organs.

The many positive effects of an adjustment may include:

  • Better movement to the spine and joints
  • Greater nervous system function and signals, including reflexes
  • Improved muscle tone, function and activity
  • Increased cell response to fight inflammation and pain
  • Normal biochemistry and hormone levels

How Do We Heal?

Your healing abilities are affected by your diet, environmental factors such as pollutants and chemicals, exercise, inherited traits from your parents and your emotional state.

Your immune system also works around the clock to keep you functioning at 100%. Your body is constantly being patrolled while dangers such as bacteria, viruses, dirt, cancer cells and dead cells are being destroyed. The single most important factor, however, is our innate healing potential that exists within every one of us.

When there’s irritation in your nervous system, you may experience lowered resistance to disease and damage to your health. Chiropractic care removes any interference and may result in improved immune function leaving you happy and healthier with fewer aches and pains or colds and flu. Chiropractic care truly can enhance your body’s resistance to disease while increasing your quality of life.
