Chiropractic is a primary healthcare discipline that places its emphasis on the examination, diagnosis and management of problems that affect the nerves, muscles and joints of the body.
We commonly see patients with:
- Low back pain (acute and chronic)
- Neck pain (acute and chronic)
- Shoulder girdle pain
- Acute whiplash associated disorders
- Cervicogenic headaches
- Pelvic girdle pain
Chiropractic care can alleviate back, joint and muscle pain through the manipulation of joints (known as ‘adjustments’). However manipulation will not be the only procedure your chiropractor will employ in the course of your care. Longer treatment times allow Sally Scott to offer a rounded care package which may also include massage, traction, postural
advice, lifestyle advice and an individual rehabilitative exercise programme which can help avoid problems from recurring.
In order to devise a treatment plan perfectly suited to your needs, Sally Scott takes into consideration your home and work environments, sporting activities, hobbies, and overall health status before embarking on a treatment plan, in co-operation with you, the patient.
