Chiropractic is the 3rd largest primary health care profession in the world. It is concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of conditions that are due to problems with the joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves, especially related to the spine.
Chiropractic treatment mainly involves safe, often gentle, specific spinal adjustments to free joints in the spine or other areas of the body that are not moving properly. Apart from spinal manipulation, chiropractors may use a variety of techniques including ice, heat, ultrasound, exercise and acupuncture as well as advice about posture and lifestyle.
Although chiropractors are best known for treating back and neck pain, which they do very well, patients also consult chiropractors regarding a range of other, related conditions. This includes shoulder problems, foot and ankle issues and many sports injuries. If you are not sure if chiropractic can help phone the clinic and ask us.
