What is a chiropractor?

Chiropractors are specialists in diagnosing and providing effective treatments for musculoskeletal conditions (problems with the joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves of the body).

 

Chiropractors undergo a 4 year university training degree to become doctors of their profession. In addition, the profession is regulated by law by The General Chiropractic Council.

 

Chiropractic means ‘to do by hand’ reflecting the historical origins of the profession as experts in manual therapy, and this continues to define our approach to health care as a drug free profession that focuses on restoring function and freedom of movement. Today, chiropractic training combines a manual approach with a medical model of interpretation and understanding, and globally it has grown into the third largest health care profession.

Osteopathy is based on the principle that the wellbeing of an individual depends on their bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue functioning smoothly together. As such, osteopaths are specialists in diagnosing, treating, managing and preventing musculoskeletal conditions (problems with the joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves of the body).

 

In order to become a practitioner, osteopaths must undertake a 4 year university training degree course which covers anatomy, physiology, pathology, pharmacology, nutrition and biomechanics, plus at least 1,000 hours of clinical training. Once qualified osteopaths are legally required to register with, and are regulated by, the General Osteopathic Council, who work to set, maintain and develop standards of osteopathic practice and conduct.

 

Once a diagnosis has been reached, osteopaths utilise a range of safe and effective techniques such as physical manipulation, cranial therapy, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, relieve muscle tension and pain, enhance the blood supply to tissues and help the body to heal.

Most people book an appointment with a chiropractor or osteopath as they are in pain and want to be pain free again. Some people feel out of sorts and are looking for realignment and help with posture. Others may come in just to stay in tip top health or for help in achieving physical goals.

Chiropractors and osteopaths are famous for fixing backs, however they are trained to diagnose and treat all types of musculoskeletal conditions (problems with the joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves of the body), including neck pain, shoulder and arm painhip and knee painosteoarthritis and pain associated with pregnancy & childcareFor more information, click here.

On average we see people for 4- 6 sessions to resolve a particular complaint, but always work closely with our patients to create a treatment solution that suits your individual needs and circumstances.

The body changes rapidly during pregnancy. This can place a large amount of stress on the musculoskeletal system as the joints in the body try to compensate for these rapid changes which can in turn make the joints sore and stiff, accounting for a lot of pregnancy aches and pains. Gentle adjustments by a chiropractor or osteopath can be used to help minimise back pain as your pregnancy progresses, without the need for drugs or surgery, and is safe for both the mother and baby. 

Acupuncture, also known as dry needling, is a treatment technique which can be used by our practitioners as part of a treatment plan. Also known as western medical acupuncture, dry needling is a safe procedure where extremely thin monofilament needles are inserted into skin or muscle. To find out more about how it can help as part of your treatment plan, read our Acupuncture Q&A blog.
