Here at our clinic, every precaution is taken to ensure that any chiropractic treatment given is not only safe, but also effective. The risk is minimised through thorough testing and examination, but also through the use of gentle and specific techniques.
Our chiropractors treat patients by doing “adjustments”. An adjustment is when the chiropractor uses his/her hand to move a bone back into place. Adjustments should not be painful and immediately after the adjustment you should fell some relief.
Internationally, chiropractic adjustments are recognised as being a safe and effective method of care for many conditions and far safer than many other alternatives. A recent study in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that chiropractic care is more effective than medical care at treating chronic low-back pain in those patients who have been experiencing the symptoms for one year or less.
Chiropractic adjustments are one of the most effective ways of treating low back pain, neck pain, and headaches. However, apart from using adjustments, the chiropractor is also trained to use many other techniques to help improve your condition. So if you have any queries at all, let our chiropractor know and they will be able to tailor a treatment plan to suit you.
