What is chiropractic?
According to the British Chiropractic Association, Chiropractic is a primary healthcare profession. It specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and management of musculoskeletal conditions that are due to mechanical dysfunction of the joints and muscles, particularly of the neck and back.
Chiropractors use a range of techniques to reduce pain, improve function and increase mobility. These include hands-on manipulation of the spine. As well as manual treatment, chiropractors are able to offer a package of care. This care includes advice on self-help, therapeutic exercises and lifestyle changes.
Chiropractic treatment involves safe, often gentle, specific spinal manipulation. This is designed to free joints in the spine or other areas of the body that are not moving properly. Chiropractors may also use a variety of techniques, including ice, heat, ultrasound, exercise and acupuncture, as well as advice about posture and lifestyle.
If you are suffering from pain, a lack of function or mobility, then please get in touch. Call our friendly team of wellbeing experts on 01202 473800 or book your chiropractor appointment in Christchurch, Dorset online today.
