Chiropractor in Market Harborough

Market Harborough or Chiropractor

All chiropractors have to be registered with the General Chiropractic Council, which was set up after an act of Parliament. This works in the same role as the General Medical Council with is main role protecting patients.

All registered chiropractors are required by law to attend on going training through professional development training,to ensure the standards are kept high.

Qualified chiropractors are able to take X-rays and also read them which gives them a great advantage. We always show patients their own X-rays and give a detailed report of findings. This can be a powerful educational tool and help patients understand what their problem maybe. As they say a picture can be worth a thousand words.

Using medical examination techniques found in any hospital orthopaedic department a detailed diagnosis that any consultant would understand allows for better communication.

Patients are often left confused by weird and wonderful explanations from the overused “slipped disc” to misaligned bones and bad posture, which fail to give a true reflection of the most common back problems.

If only it was as simple as something out of place that needs to be manipulated back into place,then back pain would not cost the country billions every year.

At The Chiropractic Clinic Market Harborough we try and educate everyone about back pain and why it is sometimes quite difficult to treat and why there are no quick fixes.

What is the Best Treatment for Back Pain.

Written By, On May 22, 2013


When looking for the best treatment for back pain there are some very obvious facts that you need to accept from the start.

There is no treatments available that can offer a quick fix.

What-ever treatment that  is considered it will have to try and restore normal function to an unhealthly and more often abused spine. The longer you have left it before seeking treatment the more damage you will have collected and the longer it will take to treat.

By concentrating solely on pain relief and not on attempting to correct the problem that is causing the pain you are on a road to nowhere.

Long term pain relief medication can also lead to many other health problems due to the side effects of these drugs.

Surgery is often not the answer.

Surgery is only useful to a minority of patients with back pain and with all the risks associated with surgery this should only be considered as a last resort.

To explore all other available options first is obvious, and to accept that the best option to to seek a managed solution.

Cure for back pain. 

If you will only accept an out-right cure for back pain rarther than a treatment that involves on going rehabilitation and possible follow up sessions you will always be dissapointed.

The majority of back pain is mechanical in nature and will respond to mechanical based treatments.

All of these treatments rely on a combination of mobilisation/manipulation methods, of various different styles, and some form of stretching/excercise techniques.

Again and again this type of management has proven itself in research studies over decades and decades.

The politics of what profession is the best at delivering these services will continue to muddy the waters for years to come.

The best educated and trained professionals should deliver a more consistant service in practice.

This is the situation at The Chiropractic Clinic Market Harborough and The Melton Mowbray Chiropractic Clinic, which are jointly owned and run by a husband and wife team who are highly qualified  Doctors of Chiropractic. Who after their six year full time  Master Degree level university education, qualified as Doctors of Chiropractic and are registered with the General Chiropractic Council.

The General Chiropractic Council is the governnent legal body that protects patients under a government act of parliament. To remain on the register qualified chiropractors undergo ongoing education on the most up to date methods of treatment and spinal rehabilitation.

The couples university education qualifies them in musculoskeletal medicine and allows them to work closely with other medical practitioners and often consultants to expedite the best course of treatment for their patients. It is important to be able to recognise serious underlying diseases that may require an appropriate refferal.

They are also qualified to use X-rays and MRI studies which can often be a great advantage not having to rely on NHS services which can speed up a diagnosis in many cases. Efforts are always made to work with NHS services whenever possible to assist in the management of individuals.

Back Pain Treatment in Melton Mowbray

Written By, On May 16, 2013

The nearest Back Pain Treatment Clinic is located at 12 Asfordby Road, Melton Mowbray. With qualified professionals able to carry out in depth medical examinations including X-rays and MRI investigations, if required, we try and give our patients a more informed consultation.

All too often we see back pain sufferers who have been told they have a “slipped disc” when that is not physically possible. The term slipped disc actually refers to an intervertebral disc which has over many years accumulated damage and finally become so weakened that it has now split, ruptured or started to bulge out causing irritation to the nerves.

In the worse cases the disc ruptures and jelly from the centre of the disc is squeezed out causing more serious injury to the nerves. Sciatica is due to this type of injury or even wear and tear to the spine as the disc degenerate over many many years.

If action is taken to limit the accumulation of damage by keeping the joints of the spine moving to their full potential the hope is that people don’t wait until the damage is so extensive.

This can be achieved by using manipulation to free up stiff joints and followed up with spinal rehabilitation exercises to maintain them over the years.

The sooner you act the better the outcome.

Remember if you do nothing, nothing will change.

Call 01664 561199 or 01858 414841 to take action.

Back Pain Treatment

Written By, On May 15, 2013

Effective back pain treatment requires much more than a fews minutes to give a true diagnosis. If only it was as easy as a pulled muscle or the infamous “slipped disc”.

Everyone has heard of these terms and they  have become curse for specialists that have to deal with the problems such misinformation causes. Of course there are no such thing as a slipped disc, just imagine how weakened the spine would be if things could easily slip out of place.

The truth is that the spine is very robust and can tolerate years and years of abuse but eventually tissues ,such as the connecting ligaments, will start to become increasingly damaged. When the supporting structure begins to fail us we develop weakened areas that begin to cause us pain.

All too often we reach for the painkillers.  Any treatment that only focuses  on pain relief fails to address why we started to have pain in the first place.

Ultimatley the more mechanical damage we collect over the years the more dysfunctional the spine will become. The more we act to maintain or restore the healthy function fo the spine the less mechanical damage we will collect.

Using manipulation has been proven to increase or restore joint function. If you then apply corrective and maintenance excercises you can at least try and limit the disability seen with long term back pain sufferers.

Call 01858 414841 for a consultation with a specialist in back pain.

Back pain treatment in Melton Mowbray

The nearest specialist Back Pain Clinic is located at 12 Asfordby Road, Melton Mowbray. For appointments please call the clinic on 01664 561199 and you could begin treatment for your back pain, neck pain, headaches, sciatica and many other related painful conditions.

Unfortunatley treatment for back pain under the NHS can often be slow and after waiting for many months can all too often only amount to  prescriptions of various painkillers and possibly a few sessions of basic physiotherapy.

Most back pain is the result of many years of minor back pain niggles that have gradually worsened. This is because spine has accumulated damage over those years leading to compensations and a general deconditioning syndrome  This extended peroid of spinal degeneration often requires more targeted treatment over an extented period of time to truely influence the frequency of back pain. All too often over simplifying a back problem and just relying on pain relief medication can result in more damage to the spine in the long run.
