Spinal Care

The spine is a flexible column comprising 25 bones stacked on top of each other in a multi-curved S shape. Between each vertebra there are joints (orange in picture) which allow a little movement. All joints combined moving togther allow you to touch your toes. The shape arises naturally due to vertebrae and disc shapes, the rib cage and angle of the sacrum bone.

Primary role of spine:

Spinal joint dysfunction can interfere with the working ability of the nervous system, which can have debilitating consequences for one's' health and wellbeing. Therefore, in order to optimise your health, it is important to look after your spine, and all that is attached to it. In May 2009, the NHS's National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) issued Guidelines for "Early management of persistent non-specific low back pain" and advised GPs to offer spinal manipulation or acupuncture and exercise to their patients. THe vast majority of people who come into the clinic have back, neck and shoulder pain. In 2008 we did a survey of all the different conditions people presented at the clinic with. We are not suggesting chiropractic is a cure for anything we are saying improving spinal joint function will improve the quality of live of people with these conditions.
