Human chiropractic is “a health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health.
“There is an emphasis on manual adjustments, including spinal treatment and other joint and soft-tissue manipulation.” World Federation of Chiropractic, 2001
Treatments take place in Lucy’s chiropractic clinic in Pewsey, near Marlborough, Wiltshire. She will take a detailed history, talk through with you the issues that you have and agree a treatment plan. Treatments are gentle and pain-free and you will be provided with thorough after-care advice. It is recommended that you leave 24 hours after treatment before sport or any other activity.
Conditions most commonly treated by a registered human chiropractor include: chronic back pain, sciatica, mechanical neck pain, joint pain from osteoarthritis, headaches caused by neck problems, prevention of migraine, muscle spasms, rotator cuff injuries and conditions arising from minor sports injuries.
