FAQ

Will the treatment hurt? Chiropractic treatment is usually painless unless an area is inflamed (swollen). If this is the case your chiropractor will alter the treatment. Don't worry if you hear a clicking or popping noise when one of your joints is being manipulated, this is perfectly normal with this form of treatment. Some patients have mild reactions such as temporary aches and pains after their spine or joints have been manipulated or after exercising. It is important that you talk to your chiropractor if you feel worried about anything either during or after treatment.

Is Chiropractic suitable for all ages? It is suitable for all ages, from newborn babies through to the more senior citizens! Chiropractors use a variety of different techniques and will select a technique that is most suited to you.

Do Chiropractors only treat backs? No. Chiropractors are trained to diagnose and treat mechanical problems of any joint or muscle, not just backs!

How much training have Chiropractors had? All chiropractors have undergone a minimum of four years full-time study to degree level and are registered with the General Chiropractic Council (the governing body similar to General Medical Council for doctors).

Do I need a referral form my doctor? No. Chiropractic is a primary healthcare profession, meaning you do not require a referral. A Chiropractor is trained to diagnose and treat your condition and will refer you to another healthcare professional if necessary.
