How can chiropractic care benefit me?

Chiropractic care may offer numerous benefits, including pain relief, improved joint mobility, better posture, relief from headaches and migraines, and overall enhanced physical function and health. Treatment techniques vary between chiropractors. Although they are skilled in a range of therapeutic approaches, chiropractors are perhaps best known for spinal manipulation, a safe and highly effective form of treatment for spinal disorders. Manipulation involves the application of a fast, specific manual thrust to a restricted joint, usually in the spine. It has been shown in independent research trials to be highly beneficial for patients suffering with back pain and has been recommended in draft guidelines published by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE).

At the MCC, we believe in active care programs to build muscle strength, stamina, and endurance. This innovative approach reflects modern developments in chiropractic and medical approaches to back pain to help accelerate healing and promote the rehabilitation process of the affected joint or tissue. Whether it is getting out of pain, improving how your body functions, or maintaining long-term change by taking control of your condition, our goal is to help you get solid, measurable results.

What is chiropractic treatment like?

Chiropractors use their hands to adjust and manipulate the joints of your spine and limbs where signs of restricted movement are found as well as using different techniques to relieve muscle tightness. Areas are treated using gentle, specific manipulation and pumping techniques to restore normal body movement. Treatment aims to make you move better and more freely. Following this they use advanced knowledge of exercise rehabilitation to train support, stability and improve your motor control.

What qualifications will your chiropractor have?

All chiropractors who practice at our clinic are registered with the General Chiropractic Council having done a masters degree or equivalent in chiropractic.

What should I expect during my first visit?

Your whole body will usually be assessed, not just the localised area of pain, so that anything that could be connected to the cause of your problem is looked at and strategies identified to make it less likely to recur.

If required x-rays or an MRI scan advised and organised.

This comprehensive analysis means we will be able to give you a clear understanding of the cause of your particular problem – and the level of treatment needed.

Is chiropractic care safe during pregnancy?

Yes, chiropractic care is safe and beneficial during pregnancy. Our clinic specializes in the Webster Technique, which is specifically designed to support prenatal health and comfort. Always inform your chiropractor if you are pregnant, as treatments are tailored to the needs of expectant mothers.

Can children receive chiropractic care?

Absolutely. Paediatric chiropractic care is gentle and safe. Our chiropractors have specialized training in treating infants and children.

What services do you offer for businesses?
