What Is Chiropractic Care?

 

Welcome to Chiropractic Care –

because you deserve the best care.

 

Chiropractic is a primary contact healthcare profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and management of conditions that are due to problems with bones, joints, muscles and nerves, particularly those related to the spine. All body parts are treated, from foot pain to headaches, and everything inbetween. Chiropractic uses the Bio-Psycho-Social approach when treating patients – looking at the whole of the patient - from the bottom up and top down. It looks for postural and biomechanical dysfunction both at the site of pain and related structures, to help in treating your pain.

 

Chiropractic is best-care evidence-based treatment for the body, offering complete   neuro-musculoskeletal care management. As neuro-musculoskeletal experts, Chiropractors may help relieve pain commonly caused by repetitive manual work or sustained postures, including sports-related soft tissue and joint injuries and conditions that arise secondary to the normal ageing process. Insurance companies will also cover Chiropractic care after an accident, as well as helping speed up recovery after an operation or help you avoid having surgery.

 

Patients of all ages can be treated, including pregnant women. The safety and wellbeing of the patient is paramount and the benefits of treatment are weighed against the individual risks of the proposed intervention.

 

Chiropractic is statutorily regulated by the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) and all registered chiropractors must comply with the Code of Practice and Standard of Proficiency prescribed by the GCC.  Chiropractors are also required by statute to undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD) as a requirement for annual registration. Chiropractors in the clinic are also members of the British Chiropractic Association (BCA) and the College of Chiropractors (COC).
