Chiropractic treatment/management

What is a chiropractor?

Chiropractor is a qualified health professional that carries out diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on the functions of the nervous system and general health.

How it all works?

Although probably best known for treating back pain chiropractors also treat a wide range of musculoskeletal problems and some chiropractors have developed a special interest in treating people with pelvic girdle pain/Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction.

A chiropractor will perform a thorough assessment to see which structures are causing pain and will then discuss a treatment plan with you.
They only ever use the best chiropractic equipment, tools to ensure that they can produce maximum quality.

The approach is a holistic one and the treatment will depend on your own individual circumstances but may include restoring joint alignment in the spine and pelvic girdle.

The General Chiropractic Council is a body established by parliament to regulate, develop and promote the chiropractic profession.
