What do chiropractors do?

Chiropractors use their hands to specifically adjust the joints of your spine and limbs where sings of restriction in movement are found, improving mobility and relieving pain. This treatment is known as ‘adjustments’ or ‘manipulation’.

Also, by manipulating joints, chiropractors stimulate the proprioceptors – your body’s position sensors which provide feedback to the brain on where the joint is in relation to the rest of the body.

Chiropractors take a holistic approach which includes identifying and correcting the causes of the patient's health ailment which fall within their remit. Chiropractors believe that correcting the cause of the problem provides significant long-term benefits over only treating the symptoms.

Chiropractors do not prescribe drugs or use surgical procedures.

Who is chiropractic for?

Chiropractic treatment is suitable for everyone, including newborn babies, the elderly, pregnant women and sports enthusiasts. Once you are better, your chiropractor will help you to maintain your own health, and keep your body working as is should, by offering exercise and lifestyle advice for you to follow in the future.

Today's chiropractors treat many thousands of patients each week. They support their treatment with advice about their patients' work, diet, exercise, and lifestyle.
