Whatever your reasons for visiting us, it’s natural for you to want to know more about chiropractic and what it entails.
Below, we’ll go into more detail about what you can expect when visiting our chiropractors and why the techniques we use have been revered for over 100 years.
What Conditions Will Chiropractic Care Treat?
Every day, we treat a wide variety of patients, from those who are recovering from an operation or injury to those seeking natural alternatives to various aches and pains.
This is because our treatments are able to target a number of conditions relating to the musculoskeletal system. And by using various techniques, we can improve mobility and alleviate pain.
Are these treatments proven to be effective?
Numerous studies highlight their success, including a recent study that looked at lower back pain. It found chiropractic care to be the best a patient can undergo, when compared to various other forms of treatments. It was also more effective for those with chronic spinal pain.
Furthermore, we’re even able to help those who don’t have a particular complaint but want to improve their overall health and well-being. We do this by offering advice and treatments that focus on various lifestyle aspects, including diet and exercise.
What Will Your Visit to Our Chiropractors Involve?
It’s important we take your unique requirements into consideration when putting together a treatment program for you. Therefore, you’ll start with a consultation with one of our industry-leading chiropractors who have nearly 50 years’ combined experience. They’ll cover your current lifestyle and health before examining your spine and its surrounding areas.
Once established, they’ll discuss your recommended care plan with you, which may include spinal manipulation and therapeutic exercises.
Spinal manipulation uses gentle force (applied by hand) to target the treatment area. This works to reduce pressure and realign joints and muscles. Various massage techniques and stretches may also be used.
To further improve the functionality of your spine, manual therapies are utilized. These improve your range of motion and alleviate any pressure on your nerves.
Will this hurt?
No. You may experience a mild “post workout” stiffness, but this should ease within 24 hours.
Finally, to ensure you continue to benefit from our treatments at home, we’ll give you various exercise and lifestyle tips you can do to keep future injuries and ailments at bay.
