Advantages A well back and general sense of well being
Disadvantages Expensive - not available on the NHS and only lasts 10 minutes
Reasons for visiting the ChiropractorI have suffered for some time with a stiff neck, which was gradually getting worse and moving down my left shoulder. I was also waking in the night with numb fingers.
The first appointmentThis lasted an hour and involved a thorough health check, heart, blood pressure, reflex testing, strength and flexibility testing, balance testing and finally an x-ray of my spine.
The follow upAnother long session to discuss the findings. My back and neck showed some wear and lack of curvature. We discussed the treatment needed, which involved 6 weeks of manipulation followed by a maintenance program of monthly visits.
The theory as explained to meOver the years your spine get lots of wear and tear – bad posture, walking on hard pavements, everyday wear and tear all take their toll. Chiropractors manipulate the spine to release the tensions and realign the vertebrae.
For the first week he worked on stretching my muscles in preparation for the manipulations.
ResultsVery gradually my back started to ease up – loosening up nicely. I was also sleeping better – no more numb fingers. My back isn’t cured, but with monthly maintenance, I am hoping that the degeneration won’t get worse. If I do have a problem I can pop in for a quick click free of charge because I go regularly.
My advice1. Go
And FinallyI would recommend this treatment – it does work, however it is expensive at £27 a go.
