What is an adjustment and will it hurt? Our Central London Chiropractor puts your mind at ease

Here at out Central London Chiropractor we want to help make all of our patients at ease, as most of our patients have not experienced chiropractic treatment before.

Chiropractic is a primary healthcare 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.

An adjustment generally involves a quick thrust to a joint in a specific direction to restore proper movement. This is usually done with the hands or a specially designed hand-held instrument. There are various ways to adjust the spine and the technique used will be specific to each patient (these include very gentle procedures for the elderly and children).

Most of our patients receiving treatment at the clinic do not experience any pain as most chiropractic treatment is generally painless, and some patients feel immediate relief after treatment. Patients who come in with moderate to severe pain may experience temporary discomfort. If this is the case an ice pack (covered with a towel) placed on the area for approximately 15 minutes will help.

If you are suffering from back pain and you feel you need some help, please do not hesitate to pay us a visit or get in touch with London Chiropractor Motionback, on 0207 112 5408 or email andy@motionback.co.uk
