What is Chiropractic?

Home 9 What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic helps you overcome pain and stiffness by using manipulation to stimulate your nervous system to function correctly. Your nervous system controls everything in the body, so a failure of it to communicate with the muscles, joints or organs can result in decreased function. When this affects the muscles and joints it means that you don’t detect stretch as well or you tire out quickly. This leads to poor control and stability and ultimately an injury and pain.
Chiropractic is a primary contact health profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and management of conditions that are due to problems with bones, joints, muscles and nerves, particularly those related to the spine.

The clinicians at Back In Form treat all the joints of the body to help you acheive a better result and prognosis. As the spine is the major communication between brain and body the majority of treatment is focussed in that area.

BCA chiropractors provide a ‘package of care’ including a biopsychosocial assessment whereby they support their treatment with cognitive interventions such as individual counselling and advice about the patient’s lifestyle, work and exercise, in order to help in managing the condition and preventing it from recurring. Some chiropractors are also trained in medical acupuncture/dry needling.
In common with medical practitioners, the profession has statutory regulation and all chiropractors must be registered under the terms of the Chiropractors Act 1994 with the statutory regulator, the General Chiropractic Council (GCC).

All British Chiropractic Association members are registered with the GCC.

The British Chiropractic Association (BCA) is the largest and longest-standing association for Chiropractors in the UK, requiring the highest standards of education, training and conduct from its members.
