Chiropractic Treatment

What is Chiropractic treatment?

Here is the definition from the World Federation of Chiropractors.

“Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline which emphasises the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health. In addition, Doctors of Chiropractic recognise the value and responsibility of working in cooperation with other health care practitioners when in the best interest of the patient.

Our Chiropractors have additional training in working with pregnant women and children.

Our Approach at The Family Chiropractic Centre

Chiropractic treatment in actionThe centre’s chiropractors Shaana van Aardenne and Bethan Williams use a combination of two chiropractic techniques: the  classical chiropractic technique called Diversified and Saco Occipital Technique (SOT).

This enables our chiropractors to draw on a pool of knowledge to find the best treatment for each patient. Soft tissue and fascial work, dry needling and stretching are also incorporated into your hands-on care.

Sacro Occipital Technique is an advanced, specific technique that offers a holistic approach to the whole spine and muscular system and includes craniopathy. It is a softer technique, offering our chiropractors the skills to work on more sensitive individuals with health concerns such as osteoporosis, pregnant ladies, babies or people who don’t like to be ‘cracked’. 

Please feel free to call and chat to one of our chiropractors if you are unsure if chiropractic can help you.
