Thanks for asking! Chiropractic is a drug-free, non-surgical approach to healing and wellness. Chiropractic restores health and prevents injury by improving the structural integrity of the body, primarily the spine. The brain communicates with the rest of the body via the spinal cord and nervous system. When functioning perfectly, this communication is uninterrupted, and the messages go to and from the brain without interference.
Addressing the root of the problem
The nervous system is the body's wiring. If there's something wrong with the wiring, the signal does not reach the intended body part, and this may result in illness. Interference of this kind may be manifested anywhere along your spine. Pain in your arm or hand may actually be caused by a problem in your neck, where the nerves connecting to the hand originate. A qualified chiropractor can examine the spine for interferences and remove them through controlled techniques.
Chiropractic focuses on the relationship of structure and function (as coordinated by the nervous system), and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of your health.
Although Chiropractors do not treat specific conditions, there is evidence that it may help relieve joint pains including hip and knee pain from osteoarthritis as an adjunct to medical treatments and exercise; General aches and pains including those of joints, muscle spasms and cramps; General, acute and chronic backache, back pain; Uncomplicated mechanical neck pain, Headaches arising from the neck; Frozen shoulder, shoulder or elbow pain, or tennis elbow arising from associated musculoskeletal conditions of the back and neck. Chiropractic may also help in the prevention of migraine.
We often take part in research trials and we may from time to time ask you to fill in questionnaires about your problem and your treatment progress. We appreciate that you may not wish to take part and this is entirely voluntary.
If we feel your problem is not suitable for chiropractic treatment or we need further investigations, we will liaise with your GP and other health care providers, as long as you give us your permission to do so.
