What is chiropractic?

The basic principle of chiropractic is that by promoting a healthy nervous system, the health of the body as a whole can benefit.

The spine and the musculoskeletal system adjacent to it, are the main focus for the healing art of Chiropractic, although the chiropractor may concentrate on other joints.

Problems in the spine and those areas related to it, can be brought about through a variety of causes, such as accidents, injuries, illness and poor posture. In turn this can cause pain, discomfort, and other distressing symptoms. The chiropractor will aim to restore normal functioning in order to promote the body's self-healing and relieve symptoms.

The Chiropractor will use a variety of techniques, tailored to the individual to bring about a re-alignment of joints.

Before commencing treatment the Chiropractor will take a history, including details about lifestyle, and may well employ X-Rays in order to rule out disease and aid diagnosis.

Advice on improving posture and appropriate exercise are an important part of the consultation.
