An introduction to Chiropractic
Our team are experts in the mechanics of the body. They are trained to diagnose, treat and prevent problems with muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves. Chiropractic treatment involves hands-on techniques including soft tissue work, mobilisations and gentle manipulations. The initial aims are to help restore movement and reduce pain, followed by prescribing exercises to improve strength and robustness.
We want to get you out of pain and keep you that way, so you can enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle.
Suitable for all
Chiropractic treatment is safe and can benefit people of all ages. Our oldest patients are in their 90’s! We simply adapt our treatment techniques to reflect your age, lifestyle, complaint and activity level.
More than just back pain
Most people know chiropractors for their skill in treating the spine, but we look at how the whole body moves and functions and take your overall health into consideration. This means great results with injuries in other parts of the body too.
Our team here at the chiropractic clinic are well placed to treat:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Muscle strains
- Arthritic pain
- Migraines and headaches
- Pain caused by sports injuries.
A large high quality research study concluded that,
“Spinal manipulation is effective in treating adults for low back pain, migraines and headache and dizziness conditions which originate from the neck. Manipulation is effective for several extremity joint conditions and thoracic (mid back) manipulation is effective in the treatment of acute and subacute neck pain.”

What to Expect
Your initial consultation will begin with a full health history to enable your chiropractor to learn more about the condition for which you are seeking help and any other health concerns. This will be followed by a physical examination tailored to your needs and is likely to include tests involving the nerves, muscles and joints of the area of complaint and other areas which may be contributing.
Report of Findings
Following your examination your chiropractor will talk through their findings with you and discuss a proposed plan for treatment going forward. This will include details on the techniques that will be used and the likely number of sessions you will require to see results.
If X-rays, other imaging or further testing is required, your referral options will be discussed with you at this point.
Treatment and Exercises
Once you are happy with your treatment options and have had any questions you may have answered your first treatment can start! This usually takes place within your first visit unless further tests such as X-rays are required.
