What is a chiropractor?
A chiropractor is a medical professional who is specialised in treating bone, muscle and joint problems. These problems can occur over time, such as bad posture, or as a result of an injury. Due to this, every chiropractic patient requires a unique treatment. Chiropractic care can be used to help people who participate in sports, manual workers, pregnant women, office workers and many other categories due to its flexible nature.
A chiropractor will perform manual manipulation techniques to reduce stress and tension in your joints and muscles, and to provide relief and mobility. This hands-on approach is extremely beneficial for the client, physically and psychologically. However, chiropractic treatment may not be the answer for every patient – and it is a part of the chiropractors duties to understand when a problem needs to be referred to a GP.
We can get to the root cause of your problem and help to prevent your pain, instead of masking a problem.
Are chiropractors methods safe?
All registered chiropractors have to abide by relevant guidelines to stay in practise, which serves to keep you safe. The evidence on chiropractic care shows it is a safe method of pain relief.
However, you may experience some side effects such as stiffness for a day or so after your treatment. it is important to mention this to your chiropractor on your next visit.
