What is chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession that diagnoses, treats and manages the overall conditions that are due to problems with the joints, ligaments and tendons particularly the spinal region.
Treatment consists of a wide range of manipulative techniques to the muscles and/or joints, designed to improve the function of the joints, relieving pain and muscle spasm.At Back to Back Chiropractic we treat and create individual rehabilitation programs for many conditions. The below lists conditions for which chiropractic care is proven to be effective.

If you are unsure as to whether chiropractic may be able to help you, please call us and we will do our best to answer any questions you may have. It is clinic policy to attend to patients needs by undertaking an intensive assessment to enable a specific treatment plan to be tailored to each individual. At Back to Back we realise that no two people can possibly be the same. You may ask yourself, If I have back pain and right leg pain like my next door neighbour it must be for the same reason. Although the pain is in the same area, one must take into account: age, size, weight, whether there is a history of an accident, does a person’s work entail standing, sitting or lifting, are they confident or shy, are they sporty or prefer to read a book. All these factors and many more are important when making the right diagnosis and treatment plan for a Back to Back Chiropractic patient.

Vital signs

At Back to Back Chiropractic Clinic, chiropractors understand the importance of assessing vital signs. Vital signs are measures of various physiological statistics, often taken by health professionals, in order to assess the most basic body functions. Vital signs are an essential part of a case presentation. The act of taking vital signs normally entails recording body temperature, pulse rate (or heart rate), blood pressure, and respiratory rate, but may also include other measurements. We are not implying that we treat abnormal vital signs, these are purely for assessment purposes.


So please do not hesitate contact us today and we will be happy to organise an appointment for you with one of our experienced chiropractors.
