Chiropractic can help a wide range of muscular and skeletal conditions, as seen in the list below. Although back and neck pain is the most commonly diagnosed problem, we can treat so much more and offer help to elderly people, children, adults, expectant mothers and sports professionals.
Conditions that we have helped
and many more…
Some of the most common problems we treat are: generalised lower back pain, sacroiliac pain, buttock / gluteal and piriformis pain, sciatica hip pain, leg pain & or weakness / tingling. Also reduced movement in these areas. However, back pain is probably the most common reason people seek help from a chiropractor. Pain is a warning sign that tells us that something is wrong. There can be various causes of back pain such as poor posture, repetitive actions at work or play, trauma, stress or illness, serious underlying problems or referred pain from organs. Chiropractors are trained to identify the problem, provide a diagnosis and, if appropriate, recommend a plan of care. This may involve, massage, mobilisation, manipulation and sometimes acupuncture. We routinely advise about long-term solutions and self help such as posture and lifestyle, ergonomics, exercise and stretches.
Chiropractors have a highly tuned and trained sense of touch and spend many years perfecting the art of locating and correcting misalignments of the vertebrae and joints in the body.
We can advise on relevant medication but not prescribe.
Chiropractic, is a primary care health profession so you do not need a GP referral.
