WHAT IS HUMAN CHIROPRACTIC?
Chiropractic is a treatment that looks at symptoms which occur in the body as a result of fixations in the joints having a negative effect on movement & the nervous system. The aim of chiropractic is to assess whether the symptoms experienced by the patient are from a biomechanical cause & to use gentle manipulation (adjustments) to make improvements to the patients biomechanical structure. The technique used is the McTimoney Method.
Symptoms include: pain, aching, numbness, tingling, restriction in movement & can occur in any of the joints of your body
Your first appointment is between 60-90 mins long. A patient history will be taken along with a discussion about why you have sought chiropractic care at this time. I will then explain to you what chiropractic is and how it may be able to assist you and you will have plenty of opportunity to ask any questions.
Before any treatment commences I will complete a short assessment to make sure that chiropractic is the best course of action for your needs. If I feel that chiropractic is not suitable I will discuss this with you and suggest referral to another mode of care. If chiropractic is suitable then we will proceed with the treatment. You will be asked to remove your clothing to your underwear and a treatment gown will be provided should you wish to use it.
During the treatment you will be ‘adjusted’ according to the findings during the assessment. These adjustments are very quick, light and dexterous and should not be uncomfortable to receive. If I think it may be on benefit, I may suggest some acupuncture also. However all treatment will require your consent first. Following the treatment you will be given advice on how to look after yourself. It is important that you do not do anything heavy or strenuous for 48 hours following your treatment.
