Chiropractors specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders of the spine and their effect on the nervous system. There is an emphasis on the ability of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.
At Radcliffe Chiropractic we use the most up to date research and technology to help identify why your body may not be functioning correctly and how best to help you on your way to recovery.
If your spine is misaligned and holding tension this can disrupt how your nervous system functions. Sometimes this can lead to warning signs or symptoms such as pain or discomfort. Chiropractic involves safe, specific adjustments to free joints in the spine or other areas of the body that are not moving properly. This allows your nervous system to operate without interference and communicate efficiently. The aim is to restore function to the neuro-musculoskeletal system and thus improve overall health and wellbeing.
In some cases where clinically necessary, it is appropriate for us to undertake X-rays as part of your examination.
These are performed for several different reasons to make sure chiropractic treatment is safe for you and we get an accurate as possible picture of your health and spine.
Specificity is key and removes possible guess work from diagnosis. These X-rays are performed “in-house” with our digital X-ray facility. This saves on expensive external referral costs and sometimes lengthy waiting lists. Our images are digital and instant. Our aim will always be to have your X-rays interpreted and reported on within a 24-48 hour period.
Nervous System Function Tests
Our nervous system tests involve things such as Heart Rate Variability, balance, proprioception and weight distribution.
These tests help identify what may be contributing to any issues you may be having and help shine light on any barriers to healing.
