What Do We Do?
A Chiropractor’s first concern is to find out what is wrong. Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession, so you do not need to be referred by your doctor. A chiropractor is trained to diagnose your problem and will refer you to another health-care practitioner if necessary.
Chiropractors specialise in treating problems affecting the joints of the body, including the muscles, tendons and ligaments. Working on all the joints of the body, concentrating particularly on the spine, they use their hands to make, often gentle, specific adjustments (the chiropractic word for manipulation) to the affected joint(s), improving the efficiency of both joint and nervous system and releasing the body’s natural healing ability.
Recognising that we are all different is an important part of your treatment. The mind and body have been designed to work in perfect harmony to allow us to enjoy life to the full. Pain affects both. Inability to work or play to the required and desired levels because of pain, often results in frustration and fear. This may lead us to avoid certain activities and exercises in an effort to reduce pain, but it also removes your ability to choose your lifestyle.
Men, women and children of all ages and from all walks of life whose comfort and livelihood depend upon health and fitness put their trust in our care.
