How many sessions will I need?
Most people with simple, mechanical pain such as lower back pain find that within 4 to 6 sessions, they will experience good positive improvements with their condition. Other conditions vary depending on the length of time the problem has been there and the cause of the condition. You will be advised of the likely number of sessions for your condition on your consultation.
What will the treatment involve?
Your treatment plan will include both ‘hands-on’ care followed up with specific stretches, advice and an exercise routines to help you make a full and long-lasting recovery.
How does chiropractic treatment work?
Chiropractors use their hands to restore normal movement to restricted joints of the spine and throughout the body. Incorrect joint movement creates strain on your joints resulting in injury to the bone, cartilage, muscle, ligaments and nerves.
By restoring the normal movement of the joints, this removes the strain on the muscles and ligaments, reduces wear on the bone and cartilage and relieves pressure on the nerves that may be ‘trapped’. The irritation to the nerves not only cause pain, but because the nervous system keeps all the body’s organs and systems working well. This can affect your overall health and well-being.
Regular check-up appointments help to keep your joints moving well and can therefore help to reduce your risk of the early wear and tear associated with arthritic conditions such as osteoarthritis.
