Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession and Chiropractors specialise in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of conditions that are due to problems with the joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves, especially related to the spine and pelvis.
VISITING YOUR CHIROPRACTOR
At the Belfast Chiropractic Clinic we use gentle and specific hands-on techniques to relieve the discomfort and pain caused by restricted joints and muscle spasm. Chiropractic care helps to improve movement and function of spinal and pelvic joints particularly. We also aim to restore movement to stiff joints of the limbs whilst strengthening and re-educating muscles and ligaments using specific exercises for the whole body.
At the Belfast Chiropractic Clinic each Chiropractor aims to build and maintain a trusting and caring relationship with their patients. As a primary health practitioner our Chiropractors will encourage patients to have a pro-active approach to their physical health and associated mental well being by having regular Chiropractic check-ups in order to maintain their spinal flexibility and stability of the whole body.
OTHER TECHNIQUES OFFERED BY OUR CHIROPRACTORS
Our Chiropractors also compliment the gentle hands-on manipulation techniques used at the Belfast Chiropractic Clinic with other treatment techniques to assist pain relief, such as
– soft tissue trigger point therapy,
– muscle massage
– cranio-sacral techniques
– dry needling
and the application of cold and heat packs.
As our ethos is to empower patients we also prescribe graded home exercise programs in order to assist patients to maintain the physical progress they make with positive Chiropractic care.
The Chiropractors at the Belfast Chiropractic Clinic will also advise you on improving posture awareness at work and at home and in your general lifestyle. Your designated Chiropractor may also prescribe a program of care with one of the complementary care therapists at the Clinic.
