What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of conditions that are due to problems with the joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves, particularly those of the spine.
The cause of many different back and neck complaints derive from a problem within the spine. When the normal movement of a spinal joint is restricted, it has a direct effect on the surrounding tissue, causing muscles and ligaments to tense up, often resulting in pain and inflammation.
Chiropractic treatment involves safe, gentle and specific manipulation and mobilisation techniques to free joints in the spine and restore 'normal' motion. Once mobility is restored, aches and pain are significantly reduced, muscles and ligaments relax and blood flow is increased to the affected area.
In addition to manipulation, our Exeter Chiropractor use a wide variety of techniques including therapeutic massage, muscles stretches, acupuncture, therapeutic ultrasound, deep tissue laser therapy, postural advice and rehabilitation exercises.
Richard was quick to diagnose and remedy the pain in my shoulder blades that travelled down to my fingers. I felt Richard and Sara gave a first class service in helping me get on top of the issues and over a course of weeks helped to unblock trapped nerves.
If you have the pain brought on by back, shoulders and general wear and tear through life then I recommend Richard.
As an enthusiastic golfer I had been struggling since June with a bad back which was restricting my swing. After trying numerous alternatives I was recommended to visit Richard. After only two visits I was able, for the first time in several months to play golf without suffering the aches and pains prior to my visits.
My golf swing is now better than it has been for years and consequently I am enjoying my game much more. I intend to continue visiting Richard to ensure this continues.
Before visiting Richard I struggled for a long time with back pain. Physio work failed to resolve it but Richard has worked wonders and I feel so much better after just a short course of treatment.
I had given up expecting to get back to normal, but Richard has got me almost 100% back to how I was.
