Chiropractic treatment

Chiropractors train for five years full time to gain their degree. The training involves detailed studies, which include anatomy, physiology and neurology. A Chiropractor is also qualified to take X-rays and to interepret them. The final two years of training specifically involves preparing the Chiropractor to deal with treating neuro-musculoskeletal conditions, that is, conditions which involve nerves, muscles and joints.

Catherine France and Dan Sparks, Chiropractors, are both available at Castle Clinic.


Who does it suit?
Chiropractic treatment is suitable for everyone, including new born babies, the elderly, pregnant women and sports enthusiasts.



What can it help?
Conditions that respond excellently to this treatment include headache or migraine, neck and back or shoulder/arm/wrist/hand pain and leg/knee/foot pain. It can also help whiplash and symptoms of hip and knee osteoarthritis.


Can my problem be cleared up by a Chiropractor?
The news is good! The vast majority of back or joint pain is due to simple straining which should respond within a month. More long lasting problems may take longer. This will be explained to you by your Chiropractor, as you go through your treatment, as it will be different in each case.

Will I need X-rays or an MRI scan? Not necessarily, but if your problem needs further investigation or is slow to respond, these can be arranged through the Nuffield Hospital in Taunton or at your local NHS hospital or even through your own GP. MRI scans can be carried out in Bridgwater privately.

Does Chiropractic manipulation hurt?
No! Chiropractic treatment is usually painless, unless the condition is acute or inflamed, in whch case treatment is always modified to your own particular level. If an area is inflamed then it may be temporarily uncomfortable for a period of 12-36 hours after treatment. This is perfectly normal and patients should not be alarmed.
