Chiropractic Treatment

Chiropractors can be thought of as non-surgical spinal specialists and experts in joint and myofascial mechanics of the body. Chiropractic treatment is extremely safe and effective for a whole range of musculoskeletal pain, but particularly for treatment of the spine and how this can effect the function of the nervous system.

All of our chiropractors are registered with the GCC and are covered by most health insurance companies.

If you are suffering from back pain, neck pain, sciatica, whiplash associated injuries or any other types of pain and imbalances, then we can help by providing preventative care and ongoing optimisation. Book an appointment with one of our experienced Chiropractors today.

Thoracic Adjustment Treatment - Twickenham Chiropractic

OVERVIEW

Chiropractors are most widely recognised for their safe and effective treatment of the spine, however, they are trained to deal with the whole body and how it moves and functions.

Chiropractors are highly skilled and trained in treating problems with joints, muscles and other soft tissues of the body and their interaction with the nervous system. The nervous system (which includes the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves) controls everything from pain perception to movement. If a joint becomes restricted or misaligned (particularly of the spine) it can change the interaction between the brain and the body, therefore potentially causing pain/injury and changes in movement/posture.

In the UK it takes 5 years of training in order to become a Doctor of Chiropractic. During this time a comprehensive understanding of the whole human body needs to be understood, learnt and applied practically. The diagnostic and highly trained manual therapy skills are what make chiropractors experts in the management of musculoskeletal pain and injury.

WHAT IS INVOLVED?

Chiropractic treatment will more often than not involve joint manipulation, which is more commonly known as a ‘chiropractic adjustment’. An adjustment is a safe and gentle technique that is used to restore correct movement to restricted or misaligned joints. This helps to improve movement, but more importantly changes how your brain and nervous system perceive pain. Therefore helping you feel and move better.

Various soft tissue techniques are used to accompany the adjustments, helping to reduce any soft tissue dysfunction and muscle spasm. This, along with any relevant rehab advice will help to reduce pain and improve wellbeing.

WHAT TO EXPECT

INITIAL CONSULTATION

An in depth detailed consultation and assessment needs to be carried out on your first visit. This is to ensure that the cause of your complaint is found and that the correct treatment and advice can be given. We want you to understand the exact details of what is going on and how it can be improved. The initial consultation will include the following:

  • Detailed case history
  • Full spinal and neuro-musculoskeletal examination
  • Report of findings – your diagnosis and recommended plan of management*
  • Your first adjustments and treatment with any relevant exercises/advice*

*This is almost always carried out on the first visit, however, occasionally we require further testing such as an x-ray or MRI scan before it is considered safe to start treatment. For your peace of mind these tests can be arranged by your chiropractor.

SUBSEQUENT VISITS
Subsequent visits tend to be much shorter in duration and involve a treatment, usually followed by some advice and/or a home-exercise plan. We will always allow enough time for treatment and questions to be answered. Treatment is always tailored to the individual and always follows the initial consultation. The number of advised follow up visits is always dependent on the individual and is variable depending on the nature and severity of the condition.

WHAT CAN BE TREATED?

Make an appointment to see a TW Chiropractor if you have any of the following:

  • Low Back Pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Thoracic pain
  • Sciatica
  • Whiplash Associated Injuries
  • Neck-related Headaches, Migraine & Dizziness
  • Postural Imbalances
  • Hip, Knee and Foot pain
  • Shoulder, Elbow and Wrist Pain
  • Looking for preventative care and optimisation of movement and performance

MAINTENANCE, PREVENTION & OPTIMISATION

Your health is important to us and we want to provide a level of care that will not only aid in symptom reduction but also symptom prevention. Your chiropractor can provide you with further information on this throughout your course of care.

Regular planned chiropractic sessions and rehabilitative exercises are a great combination to help prevent flare ups and injury. Early detection and correction can ultimately help to avoid ‘small niggles’ becoming a ‘big problem’. Prevention is always better than cure.

If you are an athlete or somebody that takes a sport/fitness seriously then maintenance treatment is a good way to go about optimising movement and performance. Treatment can be tailored specifically, depending on the individual’s sport, to gain maximum optimal results.

Emily was recommended to me by a colleague and I’ve been seeing her for the last few months with a frozen shoulder. She diagnosed it immediately and it has improved with every visit, along with the exercises she gave me. Emily is very professional, proficient and knowledgeable. Chiropractor visits generally aren’t known for being pleasant experiences, but Emily’s positive, effective and friendly manner make them much more bearable, especially when you see real results.

We can't recommend Twickenham Chiropractic highly enough. From friendly and inviting reception staff to professional yet personable experts, all of the staff are excellent! Emily has helped me and my partner with our various ailments - even fixing problems we have previously been told couldn't be fixed!read more

This was my first chiropractic treatment and I found the experience very positive. Both because Emily successfully treated my lower back pain and because she ensured I fully understood the treatment plan and her goal for my recovery. Everyone I met were friendly, professional and accommodating. Especially liked the online booking option which adds extra flexibility. Thank you!read more

My visits to Twickenham Chiropractic Health Centre are always beneficial physically and mentally, and I always leave with a sense of rejuvenated energy. Always a friendly and welcoming service, the treatment feels tailored to what is needed with any urgent matters taken into account. The advice and overall health plan is well-informed, all delivered in a manner that isn’t intimidating or patronising in the slightest, which for me is key to that sense of well-being. Thanks 😊read more

The most welcoming Chiropractor Centre I have been to. From walking into the door you are looked after by a wonderfully friendly, knowledgable and skilful team. Emily has structured my sessions to be the best for me, my body and my budget; a lot of aches and pains I have had for years have been solved in weeks and maintenance explained to me to last a lifetime. I cannot recommend this centre and the team more highly!read more

Excellent chiropractic care at a lovely clinic. After a long hiatus from chiro, I started visiting Lee to address a few issues arising from training, bad posture and working in front of a computer too much. My back/neck are feeling a lot better; I'd happily recommend Lee to anyone looking for a chiropractor.read more

Have visited other Chiros in the area and not really been satisfied. Felt like I was throwing money away and not getting a solution. Twickenham Chiropractic Health Centre opened I booked an appointment and glad I did. Lee is very friendly and gets to the bottom of a problem very quickly. In my case I have a shoulder that is problematic one minute but fine the next. Regular treatment is helping. Clinic is brand spanking new and location could not be better opposite the lovely Green.read more

I initially went to Twickenham Chiropractic after suffering from a lower back injury, intensified by a 9-5 desk job. Lee was amazing and not only treated the immediate issue but also provided me with recommendations to ensure it didn't happen again. My back is now much stronger and I still see Lee on a monthly basis to keep me on the right track. I have already strongly recommended Twickenham Chiropractic to my colleagues and friends and will continue to do so in the future.read more

After just three visits Lee sorted my back issue with a mix of treatments. Lee clearly knows his stuff and, given I've seen many chiropractors over the years, Lee is the best I've seen. I'd recommend him without hesitation. Lee's new practice on Twickenham Green is well placed and parking is pretty easy - note that parking in the opposite side of the green is unrestricted after 10am.read more
