What is Chiropractic?

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a primary healthcare profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and management of the nervous system and hence the overall health of the patient. It does not simply focus on the symptoms of the pain but reviews the body as a whole in order to identify the root cause of the problem. An improvement in mobility and a relief in pain through manipulation encourages the body’s own natural ability to heal itself.

When a joint is twisted or ‘jammed’ and not moving correctly it can cause mild or even severe pain with associated muscle spasms. It may create irritation to the extremely sensitive nerves leaving the spine, causing intense discomfort to other areas of the body eg leg pain due to sciatica.

As well as Chiropractic, a range of highly skilled in-house Practitioners are available including a Muscular Rehabilitation Specialist, a Sports & Deep Tissue and Pregnancy Massage and Manual Lymphatic Drainage Therapist as well as a Reflexologist. This enables patients to be treated for an extensive range of conditions such as back pain, whiplash, headache and migraine, shoulder and arm pain, leg, knee and ankle discomfort, posture correction and sports injuries.
