Chiropractic is known to be an effective Back Pain Treatment and effective in the management of low back pain and sciatica, amongst many other conditions. The guidelines that the NHS use for the treatment of lower back pain National Institute for Clinical Excellence NICE (2009) include chiropractic care.
Before your back pain treatment begins, we will discuss the best options for your specific condition as well as alternatives. To make the most of your back pain treatment package, your Chiropractor will advise on the most appropriate series of simple stretches and exercises for you to do at home which will help speed up your recovery. They may also recommend having additional massage treatments which will compliment your Chiropractic care.
The combination of therapeutic massage on top of our Chiropractic treatment techniques give many benefits to reduce muscle tension, improve joint mobility, reduce pain and improve blood supply. This in turn promotes faster healing within injured tissues.
Because of the individualistic nature of each patient’s case, no two treatment plans are the same. This means whatever treatment plan we embark on with you, it is bespoke to you and your body.
