Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Concentrating on all areas of the body and particularly those of the spine, Chiropractic helps a wide range of injuries that involve joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves (World Health Organisation/ World Federation of Chiropractic, 2005).
Chiropractic involves the gentle manipulation and mobilisation of joints to restore normal function. Together with soft tissue therapy and carefully planned home care exercises, chiropractors can not only treat the problem but also the root cause, therefore preventing or decreasing the chance of your problem re-occurring.
Here at the Longlevens Chiropractic & Sports Injury Clinic, all types of treatment are specifically prescribed for the individual patient, and are carefully designed to get you back on your feet and on the road to recovery in both the quickest and most long term way possible.
In our pursuit of excellence, this clinic continually works towards the Quality Standards defined by the Royal College of Chiropractors. Click here for the College’s website to find out more.
If our Chiropractor feels that chiropractic treatment is not the best option for you, they have the ability to refer you back into the health care system via your GP, or privately, to a specialist who can best take care of you.
