About chiropractic and our chiropractors
Chiropractic is a profession that is concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous system. Chiropractors are primary healthcare clinicians who are able to diagnose and treat without needing a referral from a GP.
Chiropractors are traditionally known to focus on spinal pain and manipulation, however here at the clinic we look at the body as a whole (biomechanical chain).
Our biomechanics are the basis of how our bodies function, if there are irregular pressures or mechanical deformation/strain on any part of the chain, this will lead to injury and pain.
Examples of mechanical strain or deformation are poor sitting postures leading to neck or lower back injury, forward head posture leading to muscle strain and headaches.
Our focus is on your overall health is taking into account mental health, social and emotional impact on the musculoskeletal system. Our chiropractors also treat injuries of the extremities, take a look at our other pages to see how we can help your hip pain, shoulder pain and much more.
Our chiropractic philosophy
Here at the clinic, our chiropractors practise a forward-thinking attitude, which means we look at research and implement evidence-based techniques and treatments. This means we're committed to clinical excellence and encourage further learning of our profession and individually.
Cat, Danny and Dele partake in many courses over the CPD academic year, to refine their techniques in order to help you feel better.
Chiropractic treatment involves safe, often gentle, specific spinal manipulation to free joints in the spine or other areas of the body. Apart from manipulation, We use a variety of techniques including ice, heat, ultrasound, exercise and acupuncture and taping, as well as advice about posture and lifestyle.
We are passionate about rehabilitation and exercises, to prevent the return of pain and keep you living well.
