Back and neck pain, sciatica, scoliosis, disc herniation, carpal tunnel, hip problems, migraine and headaches are all reasons why people seek chiropractic treatment. Seeing a qualified practitioner gives you the opportunity to discuss your condition with a professional with years of training and experience.
After taking a detailed health history, your chiropractor will carry out a careful structural examination, paying particular attention to your spine. They'll also conduct neurological and orthopaedic tests. Once they've arrived at a diagnosis they'll work out an individual course of treatment best suited to your symptoms. This can include spinal and joint manipulation, soft tissue muscle work and strengthening exercises. You'll also be given an exercise programme to follow between sessions. Chiropractic and McTimony can be particularly effective when combined with herbalism or homoeopathy. Ask your practitioner for their recommendation.
