Chiro – By Hand. Practor – To Practice.
Chiropractic is a form of natural holistic healthcare which focuses on restoring and maintaining good health.
BJ Palmer: “Medicine is the study of disease and what causes man to die. Chiropractic is the study of health and what causes man to live”
Chiropractic in the UK is a regulated profession and the title of chiropractor is legally a protected title.
At the chiropractic clinic, our plymouth chiropractors will look at the effects your lifestyle has had on your body and nervous system. Firstly identifying the sources of symptoms and discovering the underlying reasons for them. We then prescribe a course of care (treatment plan) and guidance to bring your body back into balance, facilitating your bodies ability to heal as well as improving your overall health and quality of life, restoring optimum function and minimising the likelihood of any issues reoccurring.
A chiropractor specialises in the spine because the nerves in the spinal cord control your whole body and health. Once the Chiropractor has located the area’s of dysfunction in the spine, they will make specific custom treatments called adjustments to that area which is a quick gentle movement done by hand. The adjustments (chiropractic treatments) restore function to that area of the spine. They also have a neurological effect that improves the communication of the body and the brain.
Clicking is the formation of gas inside the joint capsule. The noise is a common effect of the adjustment but it is not the goal of the adjustment and some adjustment techniques do not cause any noise at all.
Chiropractic adjustments are not painful, however, sometimes working through area’s that are already painful and inflamed may be needed. In these situations, we will adapt the adjustments to you to make them as comfortable as possible.
Yes. Research has proven chiropractic care to be very safe.
Yes. Research has proven Chiropractic care to be very effective for musculoskeletal conditions and reports >90% patient satisfaction rate.
Patients report better sleep, better posture, less aches and pains, more energy, improved sports performance, better overall physical and mental wellbeing. That being said, everyones reactions to adjustments are different and until you experience it yourself, you will not know the full power and reaction your adjustments might have.
From brain scans we know that to have the correct neurological changes the adjustment needs to be quicker than 0.2 seconds. Which is why it takes a lifetime of training to become proficient in spinal adjustments.
We recommend to allow for 15 minutes to attend your adjustments at our plymouth chiropractic clinic.
Gym clothes are preferred but generally everyday clothes or clean work clothes are fine too. As long as you can move comfortably and the clothing isn’t too baggy that’s great.
Our physical and mental health is the foundational platform that our entire life is built upon. Any event that negatively affects our health has a domino effect to everything else which is why health is our number 1 value. Whilst the population’s overall lifespan is gradually increasing, simultaneously the world’s health span is drastically decreasing. We want to be the change that improves your health & quality of life.
Good health doesn’t come to us for free and without any effort. The reality is that being in good health takes time, energy, money, and conscious effort. We will give you the plan, step-by-step, with the help & support that you need to make a shift in your health.
Man-made, artificial, and processed chemicals found in most modern-day foods, drinks, and medications can cause long-term harm and often come with a long list of side effects. We believe we are part of nature and where possible we always look for natural means, natural foods, and being in nature to optimise our health.
We believe that the body is an interconnected system and all systems need to work well together. We are not a machine made of individual cogs. Encompassing a holistic approach, focusing on the whole, rather than the individual part, gives greater longer-term results.
Care and kindness are at the heart of what we do, we value everyone as an individual and we want to create a warm, welcoming environment for everyone at our practice.
Our vision is that by helping you be healthier, be happier, and be the best version of yourself, it leads to ripple effects throughout the community. We want to create a more vibrant, more productive, more connected Ocean City.
