Chiropractic

Chiropractic is a profession that is concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the muscles, joints and nerves.

Chiropractors are primary healthcare clinicians who are able to diagnose and treat without needing a referral from a GP.

Our chiropractic approach

We follow these four stages when treating our patients to ensure a fully patient-centred care approach


1. Injury - brings you to see us, where we take your history, assess you and put a plan together.

2. Treatment - Not just cracking joints. Treatment consists of multiple aspects such as hands on care, home exercises, analgesic advice, nutritional advice, and ergonomic advice for home and at work.

3. Rehab - this is brought in to the treatment as soon as possible, often during the first treatment. It is then regularly reassessed and progressed.

 4. Maintenance  - Also known as MOT visits or preventative care these visits are recommended once the pain stops.  Research has shown that these occasional check up visits can be beneficial in preventing many recurrent injuries.

Biomechanics

Chiropractors are traditionally known to focus on spinal pain and manipulation, however here at the clinic we look at the body as a whole.
 

'Biomechanics' are how the body's muscles and joints move and function together, if there are irregular pressures or mechanical deformation/strain on our body, this will lead to injury and pain.
It is therefore important that these are checked and kept in good order.

Examples of mechanical strain or deformation are poor sitting postures leading to neck or lower back injury - Forward head posture is and example of this and can lead to muscle strains and headaches.

Our focus is on your overall health (a holistic approach). We therefore take into account not just how your body is coping physically but also the mental, social and emotional impact your injury is having on you. 

Our chiropractors also regularly treat injuries of the arms and legs, take a look at our other pages to see how we can help your hip pain, shoulder pain and much more.

Techniques


Our Chiropractors 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.
