Chiropractic like other physical therapies can be helpful for a good variety of musculoskeletal conditions. Although we specialise in spinal conditions we also regularly come across extremity issues.
Chiropractors are trained in using manipulation to free stiff or restricted joints. Chiropractors may also include the use of massage, stretching or mobilisation.
Chiropractors can give relevant advice on self-help so patients can better manage their own condition, and help prevent it from recurring.
Chiropractic treatment often takes place over a number of weeks, especially if the condition is long standing.
A regulated profession
Chiropractors are registered by law under The Chiropractors Act 1994. The profession is regulated in the UK by the General Chiropractic Council (GCC). It is illegal to practice as a chiropractor without being registered with the GCC.
Chiropractic care is included as a treatment option in NICE’s guidelines on managing low back pain. (www.nice.org.uk/CG88).
