Chiropractic care for a Working Lifestyle

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.

"Coming to meet you put my mind at ease... and made me see a light at the end of the tunnel. From 2015 when I could barely walk, to 2017 when I'm now doing half marathons, it's just unbelievable."

  • Does Chiropractic care hurt?
    The majority of 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?"
    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 to ensure continued spinal health.
  • 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. However, evidence shows that chiropractic care commonly provides pain relief for many patients to the extent that they do not need 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.
  • From what age can a patient receive Chiropractic care?
    A patient may receive Chiropractic care from any age. The Doctor of Chiropractic will change the dynamics of how they treat depending on age and condition and will always do this with the patient’s safety and comfort in mind.
  • Is Chiropractic care safe in pregnancy?
    Chiropractic care is safe in pregnancy and there are various techniques and procedures that the Chiropractor will have learnt to ensure this is the case.
  • Is treatment over once my baby is born?
    It is recommended for you to have a postpartum Chiropractic re-evaluation a few weeks following the birth of your child due to the ligamental changes and repositioning of the body.
  • How many treatments do I require?
    The number of treatments 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.
