What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession, so you do not need to be referred by your doctor. A chiropractor is trained to diagnose your problem and will refer you to another health-care practitioner if necessary.
Chiropractors treat problems with joints, bones and muscles, and the effects they have on the nervous system. Working on all the joints of the body, concentrating particularly on the spine, they use their hands to make often gentle, specific adjustments (the chiropractic word for manipulation) to improve the efficiency of the nervous system and release the body’s natural healing ability.
Chiropractic does not involve the use of any drugs or surgery
Chiropractors take a holistic approach to health and wellbeing; this means they consider physical, psychological and social aspects.
The effectiveness of chiropractic treatment is supported by research as well as by various International government and medical organisations. Patients see chiropractors in a private capacity either through self referral or as a result of a referral from their GP, other doctor or health professional. CAI chiropractors also treat people who are seeking treatment through private health insurers.
