Chiropractic

Chiropractic is a profession which focuses on treating back and neck pain using a combination of manual therapy, exercises and advice.

At Clinig Corff Ystwyth we believe a course of chiropractic treatment would be ideal for you if you have:

  • Low back or neck pain localised to one part
  • Low back or neck pain that you haven’t had for too long (1 to 12 weeks)

You will be thoroughly assessed and examined to determine if chiropractic treatment is right for you.  If not, then your options will be discussed and wherever necessary a referral to the correct healthcare professional can be arranged.

If chiropractic treatment seems right for you, then a plan of action will be put in place for you:

  • An explanation of what is causing your pain
  • A series of gentle chiropractic manipulations (‘adjustments’) done over a few sessions
  • Some work on tender muscles around the area
  • Recommendation to add a few sessions of massage if appropriate
  • Exercises to do at home between visits to keep your improvement going
  • Advice on getting back to normal activities ASAP
  • Advice on future flare-ups
  • Advice on when your course of care has come to an end.

Research and evidence supports the use of chiropractic treatment as part of a package of care (Reference here).  Visits for treatment begin regularly to begin with (two weekly is standard) for up to three or four weeks.  It is hoped that you see noticeable improvement in your symptoms in this time.  Visits then reduce to once a week, then once a fortnight and down to maybe one or two follow-up visits to check on your progress.

The aim is to see you as little as possible, but as often as is needed to make sure you get what you need from your care.
