Chiropractic is a healthcare profession that focuses on diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, with special emphasis on the spine. It emphasises manual therapy including spinal manipulation and other joint and soft-tissue manipulation, and includes exercises.
Manipulation is the technique used in the chiropractic adjustment to correct the misalignments and fixations of a joint to reduce nerve impingement and increase optimum health.
The chiropractor will assess and treat the cause of the symptoms and not solely the symptoms themselves.
The chiropractor will decide if the patient will benefit from other techniques which can be incorporated with chiropractic to maximise treatment outcomes.
These include massage, mobilisation, stretching, exercise and advice.
Joint pains including hip and knee pain from osteoarthritis as an adjunct to core OA treatments and exercise
General aches and pains including those of joints, muscle spasms and cramp
General, acute and chronic backache, back pain (not arising from injury or accident), including Lumbago
Uncomplicated mechanical neck pain
Headache arising from the neck (i.e. cervicogenic)
Frozen shoulder, shoulder or elbow pain, or tennis elbow arising from associated musculoskeletal conditions of the back and neck, but not isolated occurrences
Prevention of migraine
Tension and inability to relax (through lifestyle advice rather than chiropractic care)
A free spinal assessment is available for anyone who would like to know about their posture and what they can do to improve and maintain it.
If you have a particular condition you wish to discuss with the chiropractor this is also a great opportunity.
The spinal check includes:
•15 minute private consultation with a chiropractor
•Postural assessment and lifestyle analysis
•Back pain advice
