What’s Chiropractic

This refers to a health care profession focusing on the relationship between the body’s structure, mainly the spine, and its functioning. Chiropractic practitioners use a variety of treatment approaches, but their strategies are primarily based on performing adjustments (or manipulation) to the spinal joint & other parts of the body, with the aim of relieving problems with joints, muscles, and bones.

Palmer College who trains chiropractors in the US has a helpful video explaining what Chiropractic is:

Examples of Techniques Used By Chiropractors

  • Spinal manipulation, where they use their hands or small instruments to apply a controlled, sudden force to the muscles, joints, and bones in & around the spine.
  • Gradually moving the joints into different positions.
  • Short & sharp thrusting movements.
  • Stretching or pulling the muscles in different directions.

Note: The procedure isn’t normally painful, but a few people experience some discomfort. In case you find it to be painful, tell your chiropractor immediately.

How Does Chiropractic Help You

Chiropractic helps correct your spine’s structural alignment, improves your body’s function, alleviates pain and supports your body’s natural ability to heal itself. Research shows that chiropractic benefits people with lower back pain, and can also be helpful for upper & lower extremity joint conditions, neck pain, headaches and whiplash associated disorders.

Chiropractic Costs

All too often, the cost of chiropractic is an unplanned, unbudgeted expense. So before you can see a practitioner, you’ll want to know what the visit will cost you, as well as the type of financial arrangements to expect- card facilities, cheques, cash etc. Unfortunately, there’s no straightforward answer as costs vary. Also, each professional has different techniques, experience and expertise, which are reflected in the price. Overall, people in London, who have chiropractic treatment pay for it privately, and the procedure costs around £30 to £80 per session.

How to Choose the Best Chiropractor

Finding a passionate, dynamic & reputable chiropractor can be a daunting task. This is because chiropractic can be quite limited on NHS, since it’s a complementary & alternative medicine, and differs from traditional medicine. You’ll have to find a private clinic to book an appointment without being referred. If you’re thinking about seeking chiropractic care, here are a few tips that will help you find the right chiropractor for your needs;

  1. Word of Mouth & Checking Online Reviews

At times, the best way to find a trusted professional is by asking for recommendations. Talk to family, relatives & friends. Ask if they have ever visited a chiropractor and whether they would or wouldn’t recommend them. In case you don’t know anybody who has experience of chiropractic treatment, just go online and find reviews for local “London chiropractors.” Pick the one with a good reputation.

  1. Are They Members of Professional Chiropractic Organization?

Make sure that a chiropractor is registered with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) as required by law. You can even check the GCC register not only to find chiropractors in your area, but also see if they are registered. Just go to http://www.gcc-uk.org/advanced-search/, enter your postcode and a list of all practitioners working in your area will appear. You can also search for a chiropractor by name or registration number.

  1. Education, License & Specialty

Healthcare professionals often have different specialism, and chiropractors are no exception. Also, chiropractic practitioners have various techniques, and you need to find the one who will use strategies that matches your complaint. Let the chiropractor know any medical conditions you have, then ask about his/her education, licensure and whether he/she has specialised training in the condition you are seeking care- sporting injuries, joint pain, etc.

  1. Experience & Expertise

Everyone would like to visit a chiropractor who has many years of experience. We recommend that you choose one who has been working at the clinic for a substantial amount of time. A long career is a clear indication that patients are happy. But you should also bear in mind that younger practitioners are also qualified, and may even have modern scientific chiropractic techniques.

Other Factors to Consider

  • Ask for all the costs, including the out-of-pocket costs & insurance coverage.
  • The clinic should be located at a convenient location.
  • Confirm if their appointment times suit you.

Once you choose the best chiropractor, make sure that you;

  • Tell them about your medications, (both prescription and over the counter), and dietary supplements you’re taking. In case they suggest a dietary supplement, ask them about the potential interactions with your medications & other supplements.
  • Inform them about any complementary health approaches you use. Just give them a full picture of what you do to manage your health since this can help ensure coordinated & safe care.
