Chiropractic is a profession that specialises in the diagnoses, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculo- skeletal system and its effects upon the spinal nerves.
Chiropractic treatment is suitable for most people. The variety of treatment methods used ensures all age groups who need help, can benefit from chiropractic and once you’re better you will be given help to maintain good health, including being offered exercises, lifestyle and ergonomic advice.
It takes five years to become a fully trained and qualified Chiropractor. Chiropractors must be registered with the General Chiropractic Council.
The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE), in May 2009, recommended offering patients a course of manipulation for non-specific lower back pain, along with advice and information to promote self management.
Natural and drug-free
Chiropractors use their hands to adjust your spine and limbs where signs of restriction in movement occur, improving mobility, easing pain and inflammation and relieving any pressure on spinal nerves. This treatment or ‘adjustment‘ therefore allows the joints to return to normal mobility then the body uses its own healing processes, which we recognise in its ability to heal cuts, bruises, broken bones and fight infections.
Fast effective relief
Your body requires a healthy nerve supply to work and function correctly. The spinal cord is housed within the spine, which is made up of individual bones or vertebrae with openings between them through which spinal nerves pass.
Vertebrae can become restricted in movement causing pain, inflammation and muscle spasm. This can lead to pressure upon spinal nerves disrupting impulses. Simply put “chiropractors correct joint dysfunction relieving pain and inflammation and any pressure on spinal nerves”. This is achieved using techniques that ‘adjust’ and normalize the spine, joints, cranium and musculo- skeletal system. It is maintained by check-ups and education, exercise and lifestyle advice.
