Chiropractic Treatments in Gloucestershire
Chiropractors are Spinal Manipulative Specialists. The official definition of Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of conditions that are due to problems with the joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves, especially related to the spine. The word Chiropractic means ‘done by hand’. Chiropractors work on all the joints of the body, concentrating particularly on the spine, using their hands to perform skilled, precise manipulation.

Gloucester Chiropractic Clinic Policy
If special investigations or any other examination is required this will be arranged. The clinic enjoys a good reputation and working relationship with local GPs and Specialists. X-ray and MRI scanning can be arranged via the clinic local providers.
Full consultation & physical examination is always carried out prior to a diagnosis.
If the problem is straightforward, which it is in most cases, the Chiropractor will explain what is wrong and propose a treatment plan. If the patient is happy with this and keen to go ahead treatment may be possible at that first visit. Usually treatment consists of a short course of intensive visits for manipulation to achieve a cumulative effect and to stabilise the problem. If this is successful the chiropractor will review the case with the patient and advise if further management or exercises are required.
