A chiropractor’s first concern is to diagnose the problem. We will also look out for signs of any serious conditions which might require a visit to your GP or to hospital.
- Our initial assessment aims to identify problem areas and biomechanical imbalances. This allows us to produce a diagnosis and a subsequent treatment plan.
- Our chiropractors and visiting specialists treat a broad range of injuries and problems using many different techniques. Various tests are used to help locate the source of the problem and implement an effective treatment.
Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession, so you do not need a GP referral. However, a chiropractor 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. The treatment works on all the joints of the body, concentrating particularly on the spine. Chiropractors use their hands to make gentle, specific adjustments in order to improve the efficiency of the nervous system and release the body's natural healing ability.
- In many cases, identifying the causes can help to reduce the risk of the same injury happening again. Identifying factors such as poor posture, improper techniques, muscle imbalances and poor work practice is the starting point for interventions to be planned which will alleviate the problems.
- Our team will strive to get you back to work or sport quickly by providing progressive rehabilitation programmes and giving preventative advice.
- The chiropractors at Dorridge Chiropractic Clinic are recognised by all MAJOR HEALTH INSURANCE GROUPS including BUPA. We advise you to check your policy prior to your initial assessment, as every policy has different requirements.
- You will need to provide us with a claim number before commencing treatment, should you wish us to claim directly from your insurance company.
