What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractors treat problems with joints, bones and muscles, and the effects they have on the nervous system. Working on all the joints of the body, concentrating particularly on the spine, they use their hands to make often gentle, specific adjustments (the chiropractic word for manipulation) to improve the efficiency of the nervous system and release the body’s natural healing ability. Chiropractic mean’s “done by hand” and is a primary health-care profession, so you do not need to be referred by your doctor. A chiropractor is trained to diagnose your problem. Chiropractic does not involve the use of any drugs or surgery. The effectiveness of chiropractic treatment is supported by research as well as by various UK government and medical organisations.
What happens on your first visit?
After listening to your concerns we examine you thoroughly.
Once we’ve diagnosed the problem we sit down and discuss the choices you have, which may include referring you to another specialist. If chiropractic can help, we’ll explain your treatment options simply and clearly and give you all the information you need to decide what’s best.
We’ll also explain the costs fully, and we’re happy to spend time answering any questions you have. The important thing to us is that you’re involved at every stage and that we get you better, fast.
