About Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care may help reduce symptoms that arise from people’s joints and muscles. Chiropractors work mainly on the spine from the neck down to the low back, but also treat problems associated with the limbs.
Chiropractic manipulations involve hands on gentle procedures that help to move the joints. Other treatments given include ultra-sound therapy, stretches, soft and deep tissue therapies, massage, dry needling, and ergonomic advice.
At your first visit we will talk about your pain, discuss your previous medical health, and then undertake a physical examination. It may be that x-rays are required as part of the diagnostic process. Once we have gathered all the information we will explain our findings to you and discuss how chiropractic may help you, or discuss the need to refer you to a different practitioner.
Once you have had all your questions answered and you have decided to start treatment we will commence.
A typical course of care requires around six to twelve treatments, and will be tailored to the individual patient.
