Chiropractors can help to treat a wide range of conditions, these include low back pain, sciatica, neck pain, headaches, migraines, tension and stress, muscle spasms and cramps and all joints of the body. Chiropractors use a range of different therapies to treat pain and movement dysfunction. Chiropractors use structured exercise to strengthen specific areas of the patient. These exercises can help to decrease pain, prevent muscle deterioration, promote joint health, increase strength, stability and range of motion and also to protect against new or recurring injuries. Chiropractors also use a variety of hands-on soft tissue therapies to improve function in muscles, ligaments, tendons and joint capsules.
Chiropractic treatment is where a practitioner uses their hands to help relieve problems with the bones, muscles and joints. Chiropractors are trained to use spinal manipulations to treat neck and back pain. This is where the chiropractor uses their hands to apply a force to the muscles, bones and joints of the spine and neck. Chiropractic treatment involves safe, often gentle, specific spinal manipulation to free joints in the spine or other area of the body that are not moving properly.
