What is Chiropractic Treatment?
Chiropractic is a healthcare profession with its own distinct principles and practice with a primary focus on the musculoskeletal system and the effects on the nervous system as it relates to the spine and patients' health.
The majority of people who consult a chiropractor do so for back and leg pain, neck and arm pain and headaches. However, chiropractic can also be helpful for sports injuries affecting other joints.
Chiropractic treatment consists of safe, often gentle, specific adjustments, done by hand, to free joints and other areas of the body that are not moving properly. The treatment does not usually hurt and usually requires a short thrust to a joint, which might result in an audible ‘click’. This may bring a feeling of well-being. This ‘click’ is the sound of bubbles of gas popping in the fluid of the joint as pressure is released.
This safe, effective treatment is supported by advice on the use of ice, gentle rehabilitative exercise and lifestyle changes. At Clevedon Chiropractic Clinic we can have custom-made orthotics made for your shoes to correct your foot posture, taking the pressure off your hips, knees and back.
We have an extensive range of nutritional supplements to look after the health of your joints, muscles and bones. We also supply pillows to help patients have improved quality of sleep and less neck pain. These pillows were found to suit people with neck pain best in peer-reviewed published literature.
At Clevedon Chiropractic Clinic we also have a supervised gym where our patients can learn to strengthen their muscles and joints through evidence-based exercise programmes.
