What conditions do chiropractors treat?

Chiropractors are trained to diagnose, manage and treat many different pain-related problems. They are a regulated healthcare profession that not only offers treatment for disorders of the musculoskeletal system i.e bones, joints and muscles, but they also take into consideration the patients physical and emotional wellbeing,

Chiropractors are different to doctors or surgeons as they specialise in offering treatment options that are non-invasive and non-surgical, eliminating the need for anaesthesia or injections. They use multiple techniques such as ultrasound, exercise, IDD therapy and laser therapy to help patients relieve their pain.

As well as manual treatment options that are bespoke to the patient, chiropractors are able to offer safe aftercare treatment that encourages patients to carry out routine exercises and suggest lifestyle changes to help ease their pain.

Even though chiropractors are well known for treating neck and back pains, patients also consult chiropractors for a wide range of other pain-related conditions.

Back pain

Back pains are one of the most common problems experienced by approximately three out of four adults. (Stephen M. Perle, DC,)

As people are working from home now more than ever, incorrect posture and poor working environments are leading to an increase in back strains and aches. It can also be caused by lifting heavy weights, playing sports or by twisting the body improperly during everyday activities. The pain is usually felt as a burning, stabbing or aching pain and sometimes you may experience a sharp tingling feeling. 

Treatment options can include: IDD Therapy, Shockwave Therapy, K- Laser Therapy, Digital X-rays and Diagnostic Ultrasound Scans

Neck pain

Neck pains can often feel like hot burning sensations or shooting or stabbing pains in your shoulders or in one or both of your arms. In some cases, this can also cause severe headaches, making daily activities almost impossible to do.

Treatment options can include: IDD Therapy, Shockwave Therapy, K- Laser Therapy, Digital X-rays and Diagnostic Ultrasound Scans


Sciatica pain is when the sciatica nerve, which is the longest nerve in the body, is compressed or irritated. This can lead to severe pain, often starting from the top of the leg to the bottom. The common causes of sciatica are dislocated discs, injury, or infection and in a few cases, the cause can be unknown.

Migraine headaches

Migraines are very intense headaches that can cause sickness, blurred vision and also create sensitivity to bright light or noise. Migraines are usually caused by blood vessels that tighten in the brain creating pressure on your head. There are many causes of migraines, some of which are lack of sleep, excess in caffeine and also dehydration.
