What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a gentle, natural drug-free healing art which recognises the body's self healing abilities. The term Chiropractic is derived from Greek and means treatment by hand or manipulation. Chiropractic offers hands on pain management for all ages. It can help with a wide range of problems from head to toe.

Chiropractors specialise in the diagnosis of and treatment of disorders of the spine, nerves, joints and muscles. Treatment comprises highly skilled and specific adjustment or manipulation of the spine and joints where signs of restriction in movement are found and it can also involve working on muscles, joints and nerves allowing the body to get on with healing itself.
Treatment
Spine
The central nervous system controls every cell, tissue, organ and cell. The nerve exits between the spinal bones and improper movement of the joints can cause irritation of the nerves. The Chiropractor will adjust the spine in order to restore a well functioning nervous system. X-rays are sometimes used as a diagnostic tool.


The Meade report (Br. Med. J. 1990;300:1431-7) demonstrates that chiropractic is more effective than conventional medicine in the treatment of low back pain. Patients who had Chiropractic care showed 70 percent more improvement than those given hospital out-patient care.

A follow-up study in 1995 confirmed the results and showed that Chiropractic patients had higher levels of satisfaction with their treatment.
