Chiropractors treat problems with joints, bones and muscles, and the effects they have on the nervous system. Working on all the joints of the musculoskeletal system, the chiropractors work to improve the efficiency of the nervous system and release the body's natural healing ability.
Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession, so you do not need to be referred by your doctor. Chiropractic does not involve the use of any drugs or surgery.
If you suffer from acute or chronic low back pain, chronic neck pain, stiffness, migraines, cervicogenic headaches, extremity joint problems, tension, back aches, pains or poor posture then the chiropractors at Durham House Chiropractic clinic may be able to help you live a more fulfilling, active and healthy life through chiropractic care.
In common with medical practitioners and dentists, all chiropractors are registered by law under the Chiropractors Act 1994 and the title 'Chiropractor' is protected under this legislation.
The profession is statutorily regulated through the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) and it is illegal to practise as a chiropractor without being registered with the GCC.
At Durham House we are committed to improving and maintaining your spinal health and well being. Our goal is not only to make you feel better but to restore and maintain optimum health for you and your nervous system. We always try and educate our patients regarding their musculoskeletal condition as we find that the more educated they are, the decreased likelihood of relapse. To help ensure the pain doesn't return, we recommend preventative check-ups. We also provide everyone with suitable exercise, lifestyle and nutritional advice to keep you healthy and pain-free.
The initial consultation is always complimentary!!
This involves sitting with one of our chiropractors and giving them a full medical case history. After this the chiropractor will be able to ascertain whether it is necessary for you to have a full spinal and postural examination. Should this be recommended your chiropractor will then give you a thorough examination, using muscle testing, as well as painless orthopaedic and neurological tests.
Once a diagnosis has been made the doctor will give you a report of findings. This consists of you being provided with information as to the nature and science behind your condition. The doctor will also explain what your treatment will consist of and how many sessions are required. The cost of any treatment is always explained clearly and we're happy to spend time answering any questions you have about your treatment.
Chiropractic treatment is based on the fact that your nervous system controls every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. Your nervous system is made up of your brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves. Your spine consists of 24 vertebrae, separated by gelatinous discs, your sacrum and coccyx.
Your spinal column has four functions:
To house and protect your spinal cord.
To support your hips and shoulders.
To serve as an attachment to your muscles.
To support your head and ribs.
The problems start when normal activities force these bones to lose their normal position or function. This is called a spinal misalignment. It can interfere with nerve; brain and spinal cord function. It may cause pain and symptoms. It may also affect your muscles, joints and discs.
Chiropractors spend 1000s of hours and many years mastering the science and art of locating and correcting vertebral malalignments. At Durham House we focus on the causes not the symptoms! Symptoms are just the body's way of drawing attention to a problem; once the causes have been treated, the symptoms will usually disappear.
