Chiropractors are best known for the use of their hands to make gentle, specific adjustments (the chiropractic word for joint manipulation) to free up restricted areas in the spine and other joints in the body.
Treatment is not limited to these adjustments, and if appropriate for you other techniques will also be used.
These may include Western medical acupuncture, myofascial release techniques and trigger point therapy.
You will also receive advice regarding strengthening, posture and ergonomics at work/home, along with ways in which you can help to prevent your problem from reoccurring. This may include a programme of exercises and stretching, appropriate to your condition.
