Chiropractic care for a Working Lifestyle
Did you know?
Over eight million working days are lost in Britain due to work related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSDs) averaging 16.3 days lost for each case.
34% of days lost at work due to ill health were because of WRMSDs.
Within the eight million working days lost due to WRMSDs 39% of days lost were due to back disorders.
The numbers really are striking. Sitting and standing for prolonged periods of time and lifting heavy/regularly can lead to extra stresses on the spine. These stressed can be known to cause dysfunctions of the spine and lead to strains/sprains of the muscles and ligaments. Chiropractors are professionally trained to diagnose, analyse and treat a range of musculoskeletal disorders especially relating to the spine.

Does Chiropractic care hurt?
If any soreness is ever perceived, this is often compared to post exercise soreness. Most of the time patients in our care have reported they feel a relief after having a chiropractic adjustment.
If I go to a Chiropractor, will I have to go for the rest of my life?
This is entirely up to you. After ‘corrective care’ comes ‘maintenance care’ - this is a check-up of your spine every so often, which is like having a service check done on your car.
If I am under Chiropractic care, do I still need to take my pain medication?
The guidance of your medication is to be advised and managed by the care provider who prescribed this medication. Though it can be said that Chiropractic care has commonly provided pain relief for many patients who have gone on to not requiring as frequent pain medication.
I 'POP' my own back so why do I need to see a Chiropractor?
Its highly advised that you don't try to forcefully manipulate your own spine. Chiropractors have trained for many years to specifically and gently adjust joints in the right manner, location and direction. It is very difficult to precisely and safely do this to yourself.
How many treatments do I require?
As you can appreciate this depends on a patient’s individual case. After the consultation and examination, the chiropractor will analyse and develop a treatment plan that is specific to your case. There will be an end date for your corrective care and the chiropractor will go through this plan with you at the report of findings stage.
