Chiropractic is part of the
modern branch of complementary medicine which specialises in the treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the joints, particularly the spine.
Chiropractors use various types
of manual therapy, including spinal manipulation and other joint and soft-tissue manipulation.
Chiropractors believe if the
vertebrae are misaligned, then this can lead to disease and dysfunction in the body. The objective of the treatment is to improve the mobility of the spine and relax the surrounding muscles. To do
this, a chiropractor will manipulate vertebrae in the back and its joints which, when misaligned, can lead to other complaints.
Chiropractic treatment can help
with: Joint pain, including hip and knee pain, Muscle spasm and cramps General aches and pains, acute and chronic back pain including lower back pain, Frozen Shoulder, Tennis Elbow and elbow pain,
mechanical neck pain, including headaches from neck pain.
