Everybody’s heard of a Chiropractor, but not everybody understands what they do or how there treatments can benefit others. If you’ve ever suffered from symptoms like back pain, neck pain or sciatica then Chiropractic treatment could be the answer to your problems.
Chiropractors are medical professionals who dedicate their practicing to the healing of injuries or illnesses that can be found in the body’s spinal system and joints. Treatment received from a practicing chiropractor will involve the therapist using a hands on approach to help ease the areas suffering from pain and allow the body to be in optimum condition to heal itself. Treatment is performed by the practitioner moving and manipulating the spine and surrounding joints and underlying muscles.
Although Chiropractic has a rich history and has effectively been treating patients for well over a hundred years many people are still unaware of its benefits in relieving many different forms of pain for the individual, but it’s the whole body approach that makes chiropractic successful in relieving pain. This holistic approach allows a chiropractor to treat many symptoms such as neck pain as a widely accepted form of pain relief and management among the medical community, although there are a few individuals who seem to retain doubts about how chiropractic adjustments can provide long-term pain relief.
Chiropractic’s primary benefit is the fast relief of pain. Your Rayleigh chiropractor helps in managing any pain you are feeling by using a hands on approach to locate and identify any stresses or misalignments within the spine or nervous system. There are many reasons why somebody may have pain or misalignment within the spine such as injury, general ageing and an unhealthy lifestyle, which is where chiropractic comes in to help you increase the strength and mobility of the affected area.
When receiving treatment it is standard practice for the patient to be manoeuvred into various different positions while your practitioner examines your spinal column looking at its movement and function as well as how it interacts with surrounding joints and muscles. Treating ailments such as locked or stiff joints will usually be performed on your second follow up appointment on an adjustable chiropractic couch. Your Southend Chiropractor will then use what is known as ‘adjustments’ or gentle mobilisation techniques. Your treatment starts by moving the affected joints as far as they will go (mobilisation), then gives a rapid, measured thrust to take it slightly further.
When undergoing treatments such as these you may hear certain joints make a clicking noise, this is entirely painless and will be a result of the change of pressure within the joint of the bone causing bubbles of gas to be released.
