What does a Chiropractor do?
A chiropractor is trained to investigate, diagnose, prevent and treat pain disorders and impaired functions of the musculoskeletal system.
Specialisation in Joint Manipulation
Chiropractors are specialised in treating disorders with joint manipulation. It is a very effective technique, where the chiropractor corrects locked joints with a swift and precise manipulation. The treatment is gentle, and its purpose is to restore normal joint function and reduce pain.
We also use a number of other techniques, in combination called joint mobilisation. These treatment forms restore joint mobility by using slow, gentle and stretch resembling techniques.All techniques are adjusted to the individual patient and the condition.
The First Visit to the Chiropractors
The chiropractor starts by getting an overview of your previous injuries. Subsequently, the chiropractor investigates the area with complaints or pain. If it is relevant an X-ray will be taken. Based on previous injuries and the investigation a diagnosis is given - and a treatment plan is drafted up and initiated.
