Chiropractic treatment includes many gentle and effective hands-on methods that can help treat several types of conditions. I have a background of diversified chiropractic adjusting and in addition to this I use several other techniques:
Dry Needling is also called Western medical acupuncture and is a very useful pain management tool which can give short-term relief for conditions such as tension type and migraine headaches, chronic low back and neck pain, and as part of treatment for caused by osteoarthritis.
Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT) which is a protocol that focuses on gentle correction of spine and pelvis dysfunction.
McKenzie Method which my patients find very useful both during their treatments and as part of their bespoke home-rehabilitation programs.

How Safe is Chiropractic Treatment?
Chiropractic is a regulated profession in the UK and chiropractors must be registered with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC). The General Chiropractic Council is the independent body that regulates chiropractic education and training to ensure that patients receive high standards of treatment. Part of GCC compliance requires chiropractors to undergo a minimum of 30 hours of continuing professional development a year to keep their skills up to date and ensure techniques used are safe and appropriate for each individual patient. Chiropractors are regulated by law and must work within ethical and professional boundaries. If you have any other questions please feel free to ask in person.
