Chiropractic is a regulated primary healthcare profession. Chiropractors are trained to diagnose, treat, manage and prevent disorders of the musculoskeletal system (bones, joints and muscles), as well as the effects these disorders can have on general health.
They have specialist interest in neck and back pain, but when they assess patients, they take their entire physical, emotional and social wellbeing into account.
Chiropractors use a range of techniques to reduce pain, improve function and increase mobility, including hands-on manipulation of the spine. As well as manual treatment, chiropractors are able to offer a package of care which includes advice on self-help, therapeutic exercises and lifestyle changes.
You wouldn’t wait for your care to break down before getting it serviced, so why would you wait until you were unwell before getting yourself a check-up.
Our chiropractors are trained and experienced in finding and correcting the loss of joint function which, undetected, may lead to pain or reduce your ability to resist disease. They will use their hands to check the movement of your spine and joints before unlocking the problem areas through a process known as ‘adjustment’.
Regular check-ups will allow you to work at your best, and therefore help your body’s own healing ability and deal with whatever life throws at you.
