Chiropractic Care at Bury St Edmunds Chiropractic Clinic

What is chiropractic? – It is not just treatment for back pain!

Chiropractic attempts to restore the normal function of the body structures by manipulation using the hands as the tools for treatment. Quick painless movements are used – called adjustments – to unlock joints, reduce pain and restore function. The most important area of treatment is the vertebral column and chiropractic is well known for helping with back pain and neck pain.  All nerves emerge from the spine between each of the vertebrae and can be affected by abnormal movement, or lack of movement between the vertebrae which may in turn cause sciatica, muscle spasm and subsequent headaches, shoulder and arm pain.  Pain or discomfort can also arise from accidents, stress, lack of exercise, poor posture or illness which may also be relieved by chiropractic treatment.

It has been practised for over a century and there are over 3000 registered chiropractors in the UK and over 50,000 chiropractors worldwide. Chiropractic is a fast growing independent health profession, regulated in the UK through registration with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC).  All the chiropractors at the Bury St. Edmunds Chiropractic Clinic are registered with the GCC.
