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 the third largest primary healthcare profession, behind medicine and dentistry, and is the fastest growing independent health care profession in the UK. Chiropractors are trained health professionals who use a variety of non-surgical treatments, such as spinal manipulation and mobilisation. Some examples of the conditions

First Treatment

Before the course of treatment, the patient will always be examined thoroughly. The purpose of the examination is to decide whether the problem qualifies for chiropractic treatment and also to make as precise a diagnosis as possible.

Patient’s history: the chiropractor will ask questions to get as accurate a picture of the problem as possible. The patient may be asked about working conditions, previous diseases, operations, medicine taken, as well as general questions about their lifestyle.

Examination: before the examination, the patient will be asked to partially undress so that the chiropractor can make an accurate diagnosis. Often, the patient’s blood pressure and pulse will be taken. The chiropractor may listen to the patient’s heart and lungs or conduct other examinations.

A chaperone can be offered, as is the case with GPs, if the patient is of the opposite gender to the chiropractor and the patient feels more at ease with someone else present .Then the patient’s problem will be examined in detail, for instance by orthopaedic (bone) and neurological (nerve) tests and by testing the patient’s joint and muscle functions.

X-ray examination (only if required): it may be necessary to x-ray the part of the body where the patient is experiencing problems.

Report of Findings

After the first visit to the Chiropractor your examination results and any x-rays taken are analysed. The Chiropractor will discuss these results with you and recommend a treatment plan. This is called the Report of Findings and is also an opportunity for you as the patient to raise any questions you have.
