What is Chiropractic treatment?
Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Concentrating on all areas of the body and particularly those of the spine, Chiropractic helps a wide range of injuries that involve joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves (World Health Organisation/ World Federation of Chiropractic, 2005)
Chiropractic involves the gentle manipulation and mobilisation of joints to restore normal function, with soft tissue therapy and carefully planned home care exercises Chiropractors can not only treat the problem but also the root cause, therefore preventing or decreasing the chance of it re-occurring. All types of treatment are specifically prescribed for the individual patient and are carefully designed to get you back on your feet and on the road to recovery. Chiropractors can specialise their treatments according to their interests so you will often find that one Chiropractor will treat slightly differently to another, although the goal is the same.
If a Chiropractor feels that treatment is not the best option for you, they are a portal of entry in to the health care system and therefore have the ability to refer you those who can best take care of your problem.
