Chiropractic is the third largest healthcare profession in the world, but it has always been set apart from mainstream healthcare because of its unique approach to caring for the patient.
The Philosophy upon which Chiropractic is based can be summed up in one simple phrase:
It's a phrase that a great number of people have never heard, and yet it underpins each and every persons very being. Put simply it states that the human body has an in-built (Innate) system which is designed to heal itself (Intelligence). Basically you were designed to be well and your body will always try to return to that state wherever possible.
Chiropractic is well known for it's treatment of mechanical pain, for example back and neck pain, headaches, sports injuries and degenerative complaints. What is less well known is that it achieves improvement in these symptoms by removing interferences from the nervous system (known as subluxations) which stop the bodies 'Innate Intelligence' from healing them naturally.
We focus on eliminating the root cause of your problems instead of chasing your symptoms.
Treatment consists primarily of gentle manipulative techniques known as adjustments alongside other hands on techniques, such as mobilisation and massage. Treatment sessions also will often include advice regarding exercise, rehabilitation and dietary changes. We also co-manage our patients with our on site Physiotherapist and with various other healthcare professionals such as acupuncturists, massage therapists, consultants, GPs, personal trainers and counsellors.
