"Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of disorders of the joints, muscles, nerves and bones of the body, especially those of the spine."

How does Chiropractic Work

Our skeletons are the physical framework on which every organ and system in the body is supported. The most complex part of the skeleton (the spine) supports the most important system of the body (the nervous system). This is made up of the brain, spinal cord and nerves, which together control the functioning of every single part of our body.

The human body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. However, modern lifestyles result in strain being placed upon the mechanical structure of the body which, together with dietary and emotional factors, can inhibit normal function and result in "dis-ease".

Chiropractic does not involve the use of any drugs or surgery. Working on the joints of the body, especially the spine, chiropractors use their hands to make gentle, specific adjustments to improve the function of the skeleton.

Chiropractic at The Parker Clinic

At The Parker Clinic we pride ourselves on treating the cause of the problem and not just the symptoms.

We offer individual lifestyle advice about exercise, work and diet in order to support a programme of treatment and reduce the risk of a condition returning.

For anyone that is unsure as to whether chiropractic care may be of benefit to them, an appointment can be made with any of the chiropractors, who are happy to discuss individual circumstances and answer any questions, without charge or obligation.
