Chiropractic is a primary healthcare profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of conditions that are due to problems with the joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves of the body, particularly those of the spine. Treatment is designed to improve the function of the joints, relieving pain and muscle spasm. Chiropractic does not involve the use of any drugs or surgery.
Most of the back problems we see have taken many years to manifest as the result of old back injuries left untreated, taking painkillers for back pain does not treat the actual problem leading to more serious problems later in life. This evident because the majority of back pain is seen in our middle aged population after 20 years of working etc.
All too often back pain patients are complain that their pain is often misunderstood. This is because treating back pain as a simple “slipped disc” or a muscular sprain/strain is wrong. There is no such thing as a disc slipping out of place, this is the biggest back pain myth ever. Almost all back pain that leads to significant disability is the accumulation of damage over years, decades even. That is why these conditions are much more difficult to treat and require professional advice beyond just pain relief.
At the Chiropractic Clinic in Market Harborough and the Chiropractic Clinic in Melton Mowbray we spend time at the initial examination to take a detailed history that often reveals previous spinal problems and injuries that have damaged the spine. When this is combined with orthopaedic tests we can get a more realistic view of what the problem is.
Chiropractic treatment is aimed at taking stiff painful joints and restoring normal movement, or as close to normal as is possible. Using a combination of manipulation and exercises joints are made more flexible and the muscles around those joints are strengthened.
