Notice any of these Symptoms? See a Chiropractor

You might have never considered visiting a chiropractor when you experience pain or health problems – however it could be the ideal treatment your body needs. People often think of a chiropractic clinic only after something goes wrong, for example if you’re in a car accident. However chiropractic medicine is a great way to prevent injury in the first place.

It’s important for us to listen to our bodies, especially when we experience painful symptoms. For many ailments, such as back pain or frequent headaches, our GP is the first point of call. You’ll be given some painkillers and asked to come back if things don’t improve. In reality, on the NHS you could be in pain for months before it is properly investigated and you find the root cause of the problem. Instead, a chiropractor could perform manual therapy to relieve the pain straight away. Read more

How to Choose a Chiropractor

So you’ve decided to see a chiropractor – now you need to choose a chiropractor clinic that suits you. It’s important to understand that as a health profession, chiropractic is a complementary and alternative medicine, meaning it differs from traditional medicine. It can be quite limited on the NHS as a complementary therapy, so you’ll often have to find your own private clinic and book an appointment without being referred. Read more

What do Chiropractors Treat?

Nevertheless the health profession deals with the entire musculoskeletal system, which includes the whole body. Moreover, some chiropractors also claim to treat other health conditions such as asthma, IBS and infant colic.
