Chiropractic means to practice with hands. It is an established system of diagnosis, treatment and prevention concerning mechanical disorders of the spine and other joints.
When the spine is healthy it allows the nervous system to function at it's best. The nervous system is the vital link between the brain and the body allowing the whole body to work to it's best potential.
As we get older, out joints begin to wear. This process is accelerated by injury, poor posture, working habits and prolonged sitting. Chiropractic treatment restores movement in the affected joints, relieves pain and slows down the wear process. Maintaining healthy, flexible joints means you can work, care for your family and enjoy leisure activities without restriction or pain.
At Ilminster Chiropractic and Osteopathy you will be treated in the most appropriate way for you and your condition with a tailored treatment plan in order to get you back to full health as quickly as possible and to keep you there.
By helping the body to restore normal function of any joint of the body as well as the spine, the Chiropractor can help to relieve acute disorders caused by traumatic events whether repetitive or accidental, or chronic disorders caused by everyday wear and tear that builds up in us all.
Early Chiropractic treatment can be sucessful in the prevention of mechanical dysfunction. Chiropractic is suitable and can be adapted for patients of any age and has also been proven to improve a range of musculoskeletal connected conditions.
Chiropractic was the second complementary health care profession to gain statutory regulation by parliament by the passing of the 1994 Chiropractors Act, giving Chiropractors the same legal status as dentists and doctors.
This means that all Chiropractors are registered with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) and must therfore adhere to a strict code of ethics laid out by the council, as well as undergo continual professional development.
