Common Presenting Conditions

Chiropractors are primary contact practitioners. This means that people can directly access their services. The following is a comprehensive list of the symptoms and conditions that present to our clinic. We do not actively treat all of these conditions. However, we are well placed to manage them. The management could be in any of the following forms: diagnosis, advice, treatment (see list below), monitoring of progress or timely and appropriate medical referral. To facilitate referral, our team (consisting of chiropractors and physiotherapists) have a close working relationship with local orthopaedic, spinal-neurosurgical and pain management consultants.

Conditions We Treat

In 2010, the UK evidence report by Professor Gert Bronfort on the 'Effectiveness of Manual Therapies' was published. It concluded that spinal manipulation/mobilisation is effective in adults for acute, subacute, and chronic low back pain; for migraine prevention and cervicogenic headache, and a number of upper and lower extremity joint conditions. Thoracic spinal manipulation/mobilisation is effective for acute/subacute neck pain, and, when combined with exercise, cervical spinal/manipulation is effective for chronic neck pain.
