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

About Our Chiropractic Therapy

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.

After suffering from chronic neck/shoulder pain as a result of a prolapse disc, I decided to give chiropractic a go. I’m so pleased I did and have been having regular sessions with Lee. He took the time to fully understand what feels like a frustratingly complex condition and suggest a course of treatment, in particular to manage pain. After a few sessions I’m so relieved the tightness in my neck and shoulders/back has eased, together with getting some welcome relief from, at times, intense headaches.I’m also so very pleased to have found Christina for sports massage which is tremendously helpful following treatment with Lee. She is very knowledgeable and gently relieves sore muscle tension. I have particularly appreciated Christina’s holistic approach which has been enormously helpful in pinpointing root causes triggering pain, learning relaxation techniques and generally better understanding of how best to manage the condition in the longer-term. I feel much more informed and confident to continue lower impact sporting activities I enjoy which I had thought might not be possible because of the injury. Christina’s magic fingers and extensive experience have separately also extended to help ease carpal tunnel symptoms.I highly recommend both Lee and Christina and cannot thank them enough for their help and great advice.read more

Best chiropractor and worth his weight in gold. No more sciatica 24 / 7...7 days a week. Didn't know that I had a twisted vertebrae in my upper back. Couldn't turn my head completely one way, nerve pain down arm. Lived with it for years. Lee fixed it. Had Lumber discs in lower back popping in and out. Sciatica from my backside running down my legs 24 / 7. Lived and put up with it for years. Lee got me out of pain again. He gets me out of pain every time my back plays up.read more

Having been a regular patient, under the wonderful Elly Gibbins, for a number of years, I cannot sing praises high enough on her excellent treatments. With my 8 or 12 week check ups, Elly makes every session a relaxing and extremely beneficial occasion. An update chat and questions asked on personal well being before any treatment begins. Elly will always let you know any problems you have and probable causes, whilst doing the body manipulation and genuinely engages in conversation about your own life's activities, as well as her own. A thoroughly wonderful relaxing experience on every visit. An 'A' plus rating for Elly and the Twickenham Chiropractic Health Centre!read more

Finally found relief for my upper back pain! Was skeptical to look for a new chiropractor although I've had a few sporadic treatments overseas previously. These things can sometimes feel like you're throwing money out the window if you don't find the right person. Definitely not the case here :)Lee is really friendly and has been great at knuckling down on my back problem and explaining it to me. I've been experiencing constant upper back pain from the usual 9-5 desk work grind. Just finished my second session but starting to feel the benefits of the regular treatment. Thank you Lee!read more

Christina is absolutely amazing. I made appointment with he because of shoulder pain. She is incredibly knowledgeable. She listens carefully and really targets the problem area. She helped relieve my tension and pain. She also gave me stretches for pre and post workouts to help with tightness. I highly recommend her services. I would see her on a regular basis. I wish I could have taken her to Texas with me. Lee has been fantastic. He made me feel very comfortable as this was the first I had every seen a chiropractor. I initially had stiffness in my neck. After a few sessions I felt as good as new and continued to see him every two to three months for an adjustments. Couldn’t be more pleased.read more

I have had a very good experience with Emily. I knew hardly anything about Chiropractic Health other than 'I've got a pain in my back'. When I first visited, Emily explained the process well and so I knew what to expect.After having 1-2 treatments per week for a couple of months the pain I had is gone and generally I have had far fewer instances of 'having a sore back'. I have also had some good advice for recovery after sport which has been very helpful.Very happy to recommend Emily and this practice.read more

I came to Twickenham Chiropractic Health Centre with a bad and constant shoulder pain. As soon as I entered I was welcomed by a friendly receptionist who advised me who will be doing my initial assessment, which I later had with Elly. She is a wonderful doctor who helped me with my shoulder in a matter of weeks. I feel much better now, Elly also shared with me a great set of exercises that I can do at home to strengthen my upper back and shoulders. Now I come for monthly visits to maintain it. I want to thank Elly and reccomend Twickenham Chiropractic Health Centre to anyone who require chiropractor help. Thanks guys! You are great!read more

I started going to Twickenham Chiropractic in Spring this year due to some ongoing neck and back problems which were giving me a lot of pain. I’d seen many physios, chiropractors and masseurs but nothing had worked until I saw Emily. I’m now in a place where I don’t have day-to-day pain, can move without discomfort and visit once a month just to make sure everything is in check. She’s been brilliant in working with me to ensure that I don’t experience the same pain again and has spent a lot of time explaining how I can avoid the same thing happening again. Because of Emily, I’ve been able to get back into sport and live a much more active lifestyle. Thanks Emily, you’re a star!read more

Lee has not only helped me recover more quickly from various injuries, he has also helped prevent them through regular tuneups.I have also had regular sports massages from Christina who has also been vital in my injury recovery/prevention.I’ve had such good treatment there that I have had complete confidence to refer family members and friends for various symptoms including age related issues and every day stresses taking their toll. They have always been very impressed with the results.Extremely friendly and welcoming staff, I would absolutely recommend this clinic for all its treatments.read more
