Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the neuro-musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors practice a manual approach and are specifically trained to detect and correct problems in the spine and other joints.
What is Chiropractic treatment?
More often than not, when we tell someone that we are a chiropractic office, they immediately associate our vocation with neck and/or back pain. What many do not realize, however, is that chiropractic is a health care modality that provides significantly more than just a solution for pain.
We have been fortunate to work with people from all walks of life (including newborns, children, and adolescents) and the outcome has been miraculous.
What does a Chiropractor treat?
- Neck and back pain
- Cervicogenic headache (a headache arising from the neck)
- Migraine prevention
- Disc injuries including sciatica
- Sports injuries
- Shoulder conditions (e.g. rotator cuff syndrome)
- Stress-related disorders
- Muscle tension and tears
- Lumbago and sciatica
- Generalised aches and pains
NB: Due to current ASA (advertising standards agency) laws we are currently limited in listing all the conditions Chiropractic may be able to help with. If you're suffering in pain or discomfort, feel free to call or email to discuss your condition further and see if Chiropractic treatment can be of benefit.
Chiropractic is a regulated profession and Chiropractors are required by law to register with the General Chiropractic Council . The Council ensure that all Chiropractors operate to high professional standards. It typically takes 4 years to become a qualified Chiropractor. All Chiropractors are required and expected to maintain our professional skills through on-going training and professional development. These assurances exist to make sure you can be confident your osteopath has the skills, qualification and knowledge essential for safe treatment.
