What is chiropractic care?
Chiropractors work with the musculoskeletal system, which is the framework of bones and muscles that support the body. A professional chiropractor can provide treatment that will alleviate pain caused by a range of things, such as accidents, wear and tear, poor posture, lack of exercise, stress and illness. These types of issues may put pressure on the nerves in the body, which can lead to pain, stiffness and poor mobility.
Depending on your symptoms, a chiropractor may provide treatment in the form of spinal adjustments, manipulation of the joints or rehabilitation. They will also offer invaluable advice, suggesting lifestyle changes that could benefit you such as exercise, diet and self care. Manipulation is the main form of chiropractic treatment and this involves the precise handling of and movement of joints or parts of the spine in order to achieve realignment.
One of the key benefits of chiropractic care is that it is centred around you and is a flexible form of treatment, which means it can be planned and adjusted according to your own specific needs and preferences.
