Uckfield and Hailsham Chiropractic Clinics are committed to improving your alignment and relieving your pain using the true principles of Chiropractic care.
Chiropractic is a health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system (bones, joints and muscles), and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal adjustment and other joint and soft-tissue manipulation.
Chiropractors have a specialist interest in neck and back pain but when they assess their patient they take their entire physical, emotional and social wellbeing into account.
Chiropractors use a range of techniques to reduce pain, improve function and increase mobility, with an emphasis on hands-on manipulation of the spine.
They may also offer advice on diet, exercise and lifestyle, and rehabilitation programmes that involve exercises to do in your own time. Some chiropractors may also offer other treatments, such as acupuncture.
Most patients visit a chiropractor of their own accord, but some may be referred by a doctor. Chiropractors are trained to recognise when chiropractic will not help a medical condition, and will refer a patient to a GP when necessary. Chiropractic does not involve the use of any drugs or surgery.
