What is a Chiropractor?
specialise in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of
conditions that are due to problems with the joints, ligaments, tendons
and nerves of the body, in particular the spine.
Chiropractors are healthcare professionals. In the same regard as Dentist's and GP's, all Chiropractors are registered with a national regulatory body set up by parliament called the General Chiropractic Council.
Chiropractors are highly trained to diagnose and treat mechanical dysfunction. Chiropractic does not involve the use of drugs and surgery.
What training does a Chiropractic undertake?
Chiropractors must complete a 4 to 5 year full time degree in Chiropractic at an accredited University. They must then complete one year post graduation training after which they earn the professional title Doctor of Chiropractic. Following this, a Chiropractor is required to complete continual professional development (CPD) throughout each year in practice.
Chiropractors must undergo in depth training in many areas. These include General Diagnosis, Neurology, Orthopaedics, Chiropractic Assessment, Radiology (x-ray taking and reading), Postural assessment, Chiropractic Spinal Adjustive/Manipulative techniques, Soft tissue techniques (muscle stretching/ strengthening), Nutrition, Exercise prescription, Sports rehabilitation, Ergonomic and Postural advice.
Many people throughout the World visit Chiropractors. Chiropractors see a wide variety of patients of all ages and sizes.
Housewives, plumbers, office workers, dentists all the way through to professional athletes benefit from Chiropractic care. Incredible athletes including Usain Bolt, Evander Holyfield and Tiger Woods utilise Chiropractic to stay at the top of their game.
Every journey must start with a single step. The first
goal in any treatment plan is pain relief. Our aim is to relieve your
pain as quickly as possible. Once you are pain free, you will want to
stay this way. However, pain relief is not an indication that the underlying problem is fixed. This is where the second and third phases of the treatment plan
Phase 1: Pain Reduction:
The first step is pain relief. The aim is to reduce the majority of your discomfort using various Chiropractic and manual therapy techniques.
Phase 2: Correction and Functional Rehabilitation: Every fitness plan takes time, as does improving the strength and flexibility of an area. The second step aims to
improve joint integrity and function, the underlying cause of the
problem is addressed with an emphasis on increasing stability and the
function of the area.
Treat the cause, not the symptoms
Whilst pain medication may mask pain for a mechanical problem, it does little to treat the actual cause of the problem. That is why we encourage you to not just treat the symptoms of your pain but to also address the underlying cause. Consult our highly qualified Chiropractors for a drug-free approach to get and stay out of pain.
