Chiropractic treatment

Chiropractic treatment is used to treat joints that are objectively intact, but whose function is impaired. The aim of chiropractic treatment is to restore the mobility of the joint.

Mobilisation or manipulation

In chiropractic treatment, there are two ways to deal with a joint’s limited mobility: mobilisation or manipulation.

The former involves gently mobilising the joint by stretching it repeatedly until motion is restored.

In manipulative treatment a very fast and short movement with a little force can lead to the immediate and complete restoration of mobility. The muscle that was blocking the joint relaxes, freeing the joint again.

Before we carry out chirotherapeutic treatment at our practice we look at your medical history and determine possible causes for your symptoms — as we do with all other forms of therapy.
