What is Chiropractic

Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of conditions that are due to problems with the joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves, especially related to the spine.

Chiropractic treatment mainly involves safe, often gentle, specific spinal manipulation to free joints in the spine or other areas of the body that are not moving properly. Apart from manipulation, Chiropractors may use a variety of techniques including ice, heat, ultrasound, exercise and acupuncture as well as advice about posture and lifestyle.

Although Chiropractors are best known for treating back and neck pain, which they do very well, patients also consult chiropractors regarding a range of other, related conditions.


Chiropractic is a drug-free, non-surgical approach to healing and wellness, which takes an integrated and holistic approach to the needs of their patients, considering physical, psychological and social factors.


Chiropractic is suitable for all ages, it caters to individual need whether it is acute or chronic conditions. As well as advice about self-help, exercise, diet and lifestyle, Chiropractors often provide support for pain management, sports injuries and rehabilitation.


Addressing the root of the problem: the nervous system is the body's wiring. If there's something wrong with the wiring, the signal does not reach the intended body part, and this may result in illness. Interference of this kind may be manifested anywhere along your spine. Pain in your arm or hand may actually be caused by a problem in your neck, where the nerves connecting to the hand originate. A qualified chiropractor such as myself can examine the spine for interferences and help remove them through controlled techniques.
