Introduction

Chiropractic comes from the Greek to mean “done by hand”. Chiropractors are able to treat the framework that supports the body which includes problems with the joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves. Chiropractors are most widely recognised for their safe and effective treatment of the spine, however, they are trained to deal with how the whole body functions and moves.

Between them, the chiropractors at Staines Chiropractic treat a wide range of patients, they have undergone extra training and have special interest in treating sports people and high level athletes and expectant mothers and young children

What is chiropractic?

What can the chiropractors at Staines Chiropractic treat?

Pain or stiffness is what usually motivates someone to seek help from our chiropractors. After correctly diagnosing the problem and working out what may have caused it, we always try to provide rapid pain relief. Once you start to feel better we then aim to resolve the underlying causes of those symptoms to stop them from returning.

Chiropractors can effectively treat numerous musculoskeletal conditions. Recent high-quality evidence shows that chiropractic treatment is particularly effective for:

  • Lower-back Pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Hip osteoarthritis
  • Knee osteoarthritis
  • Headaches
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Hip, knee and foot pain
  • Elbow and wrist pain

If you are unsure whether chiropractic is right for you, please contact our Staines clinic. If necessary, a complementary telephone consultation with one of our chiropractors can be arranged.

How do the chiropractors at Staines Chiropractic treat?

Our chiropractors are trained to use a wide range of treatment techniques that will vary for each individual.

Chiropractors are particularly skilled in joint manipulation which is a safe, gentle technique aimed at restoring correct movement to stiff joints around the body.  This is combined with muscle release techniques, dry needling (a form of acupuncture), stretching, massage, lifestyle and exercise advice, and exercise rehabilitative programmes.

The Chiropractors here at Staines Chiropractic often work together with other health-care providers such as your GP, physiotherapist, personal trainer or a specialist. With your permission your chiropractor may send a report to your GP informing them about your condition and the treatment you are receiving.

Who can the chiropractors at Staines Chiropractic treat?

Chiropractic can benefit people of all ages; from new born babies following the birthing process to the elderly with osteoarthritis.  Your chiropractor simply adapts the treatment techniques to suit your age, body type and complaint.

More about chiropractic sessions

a) Initial consultations at Staines Chiropractic will last between 40-60 minutes. Treatment is generally started on this first visit, however, occasionally some patients require further testing before it is considered safe to start treatment. Such tests include X-rays or MRI scans or a referral to a consultant or GP. For your peace of mind, if these tests are required then the clinic can usually organise them for you to make the process quick and easy.

b) Subsequent visits tend to be much shorter in duration and involve a treatment, usually followed by some advice and/or a home-exercise plan. Regular re-assessments take place to monitor your condition and ensure you are receiving the results you anticipated

 

Take a look at the below video, courtesy of the British Chiropractic Association, which will tell you a little more about a first visit to a chiropractor:

 

First visit to a chiropractor

How long will it take to get results?

On your first visit during your “report of findings”, your chiropractor will give you a guideline of how many sessions it may take before you expect an improvement.  In the mean time, there is no quick answer to the above question but we realise it is an important one, so we will try and give you an idea.

Firstly, there are many variables that can influence the speed at which someone responds to treatments:

  • The actual diagnosis
  • Age
  • Length of time you’ve had the problem
  • Previous episodes of the condition
  • Previous traumas to the area
  • Activity or fitness levels
  • Family history
  • Stress
  • Diet
  • Medication

For example, a fit, healthy 20 year old with their first episode of pain in an area may require 5 treatments with some advice and exercises before the problem is resolved and they need no further care.

Whereas a sedentary 60 year old who has had a constant niggle in an area for 20 years since an accident may require 10 treatments before they report considerable relief. After this, they may need to perform regular exercises and may wish to have an occasional check-up every few months to “manage” the complaint and prevent it from worsening again.
