What you need to know
When it comes to your chiropractic health, it's important that you know how it works
Here are some popular chiropractic questions answered below.
should I just take pain-killers for the pain?
Painkillers tend to be just a ‘quick fix’ and do not address the underlying cause as they merely mask the pain. Excessive use of painkillers can also lead to some serious side effects. Chiropractic care will look at the root of the problem, providing a natural and holistic form of treatment.
Does it work and is chiropractic care safe?
Chiropractic treatment is a very safe and effective form of treatment. Chiropractic is a holistic and non-invasive approach to health and is proven to be much safer than surgery and drugs. Your Chiropractor will explain possible risks of treatment and discuss any concerns you may have. If you do not respond to chiropractic therapy you may be referred to another health care provider such as your GP.
Is treatment necessary?
Pain is the way of your body telling you that there is something wrong. If you ignore it or mask it with painkillers it can make the problem worse in the long term. It is recommended to find and treat the underlying problem as soon as possible.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of sessions will depend on each individual. There can be multiple factors such as age, lifestyle and the type of problem that will need to be taken into account. After the consultation, your chiropractor will give you a report of your findings to explain the number of treatments needed and answer all of your questions.
