What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a safe, scientific and effective therapy for conditions of the spine. Chiropractic is a natural way of creating optimum spinal health, so that the nervous system can do its job, enabling you to overcome the negative effects of a spine that is out of condition.
What does a Chiropractor do?
Chiropractors use their hands to locate the joint which is not moving properly, using a quick impulse to free the joint so that it moves once more. This is called an adjustment. The muscles can then start to work normally and the spine will gradually return to its optimal working condition.
What happens on your first visit?
On your first visit, the chiropractor will ask about your problem, your medical history and your general health. They will then carry out a detailed examination of the spine and nervous system – this may include X-rays. At the second visit, the cause of your problem will be explained in detail and, on your agreement, treatment will commence. The four main questions on the patient’s mind are usually:
- What’s Wrong?
- Can it be fixed?
- How long will it take?
- How much will it cost?
