This is the final part of this blog posts series, on the most common concerns before booking an appointment with a chiropractor in London. In part 1 we covered why chiropractic care is a safe and effective approach to treating musculoskeletal pain. Read on to find out more on the truth about chiropractic care.
Could a chiropractic adjustment make my problem worse?
Many people who have never had a chiropractic adjustment, naturally ask whether the “crunching” or “cracking” might do more harm than good. As mentioned above, chiropractic adjustments do not consist of cracking or harming the bones. It is a very gentle manipulation. However, a competent chiropractor in London will perform a thorough initial physical examination. This is to ensure your condition is suitable for chiropractic treatment.
A competent and reputable chiropractor will never begin treatment unless they are sure that the patient only stands to benefit from treatment. As a Chiropractor in London registered with the general chiropractic council, we recommend that you only use appropriately certified professionals. You can then rest assured that you’ll be provided with only treatment which is appropriate and safe for your complaint.
My healthcare providers have mentioned that there may be safety concerns with chiropractic, why would they say this?
Firstly, the more favourable explanation is a simple lack of education. Even today, a traditional medical education does not include holistic and complementary natural health approaches as part of its scope. Although this is changing in many countries. This means that many medical professionals simply don’t know enough about chiropractic to make a recommendation one way or another, and understandably they prefer to play it safe.
However, chiropractors and medical doctors regularly co-manage patients. This utilizes the best of each profession and gives the patient the best possible outcomes. In our office, we also regularly update our patient’s primary care physician. We let them know about the patient’s condition and treatment outcomes.
Once you go to a chiropractor in London (or elsewhere), you always have to come back
This is another very common concern from our patients as well as people outside of clinic. Many believe once you start going to a chiropractic clinic you need to keep going for months, years or even the rest of your life. This idea is crazy. If you visit a chiropractor in London, it is their job to treat your pain or dysfunction as quickly as possible. Furthermore, it is also their job, to give you exercises and tips to keep you out of pain.
