Chiropractic is not a specific treatment, but a profession. At Skelian, we use a number of different techniques and approaches to manage the various challenges that our patients present to us with.
Although chiropractors are best known for their use of manipulation (where they use their hands to make gentle, specific adjustments to improve the function of the skeleton), the chiropractors at Skelian may utilise the following techniques:
- A variety of soft tissue therapies
- Mobilisation techniques
- Postural and ergonomic advice
- Supportive taping
- Dry needling (medical acupuncture)
- Rehabilitation methods and psychosocial interventions
- General advice, information and education regarding your issue
Chiropractic at Skelian
At Skelian Chiropractic Clinic we pride ourselves on treating the cause of the problem and not just the symptoms. We offer individual lifestyle advice about exercise, work and diet in order to support a programme of treatment and reduce the risk of a condition returning. Rehabilitation can play an important part in this. For many long-standing conditions there is not a simple cure but, through a variety of different methods, our chiropractors support patients to be able to self-manage their problems. However, we understand that most people consult us for pain relief, and it is always our initial aim to resolve those painful symptoms.
Who Would Benefit from Seeking the Help of a Chiropractor?
We provide chiropractic care for those of any age and our patients include elite athletes, office workers, those of advanced age, school children, expectant mothers and everyone in-between. There is no typical patient and the techniques and approaches we use will vary with every individual. We pride ourselves on the fact that the care and attention we provide will be the very best for everyone.
Are you still unsure as to whether chiropractic may be of benefit to you? Our Chiropractors offer a free 15 minute consultation at the Clinic to those who are unsure if Chiropractic may be of benefit. We give you the opportunity to ask us any questions you may have and for us to assess whether at this stage, we think chiropractic may be of benefit to you.
