What is Chiropractic?

What is chiropractic? And what are the benefits?

 ‘What is Chiropractic?’

I often give a technically correct but long winded answer; That chiropractors examine and treat problems with the musculoskeletal system with a focus on the function of the spine. Chiropractors use a range of gentle, safe and effective methods with a focus on using specific adjustments to treat spinal, joint and muscle issues.

A better answer about what chiropractors do is:

  • Treat problems with the nerves, joints and muscles of the body.
  • Don’t use drugs or surgery
  • Use their hands to examine and treat
  • Focus on whole patient health taking a whole body holistic approach
  • Help relieve; neck and back pain, headaches and sciatica
  • Refer for X-ray, scans and to other healthcare professionals when needed.
  • Trained to take and read X-rays

This helps our patients by:

  • Improving the movement of the spine
  • Relive tension in muscles
  • Relieve spine and joint pain
  • Directing rehabilitation of issues to prevent their return
  • Promote whole body wellbeing and healthy lifestyle choices
  • Working together to achieve our patients goals
  • Helping to prevent problems before they become problems


If any of the above sound like what you are looking for then it might be time to visit a chiropractor yourself. And if you’re in Guildford and looking for a great Chiro then you know where to find me.
