Chiropractic is a primary health care profession which is concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and management of a range of musculoskeletal complaints including back, neck and joint pain.

It is a safe and effective treatment, which primarily works by restoring normal function to joints, nerves, muscles, tendons and ligaments, allowing them to function at their optimum, which therefore promotes healing and helps to prevent injury.

The most common form of treatment is an adjustment or manipulation, which involves your chiropractor using their hands to perform precise, quick and small movements into joints, more often than not within the spine, to try and restore their normal function. You may hear a click or a pop during the manipulation; this is a normal response to the manipulation.

Our chiropractors will also use a variation of soft tissue techniques within their treatments including Dry-Needling, in order to resolve their patients problems, however if they feel you need a more in depth soft tissue assessment/treatment they may decide that you need an appointment with our Soft Tissue Therapist Ash, after which they will work closely together, and co-manage your health-care in order to give you the best possible outcome.

Issues that Chiropractors can help with include:

Acute & chronic back pain with or without sciatica
Mechanical neck pain
Headache arising from the neck (cervicogenic) and Migraine prevention
Joint pains including the hip and knee
Shoulder complaints including rotator cuff injuries
Elbow pain and tennis elbow
Ankle sprain
Plantar Fasciitis
Generalised aches and pains
Minor sports injuries
Muscle spasms
Cramp
Tension and inability to relax

For those seeking chiropractic care with a sporting/athletic background, and for those wanting to improve movement quality and performance, a Consultation with with DCC CORE's Principal Chiropractor and DNS Exercise Trainer is advised. It is only recommended for those who will be able to commit to a regime of exercises that they are able to do on a daily basis at home or in the gym.

During a CORE Chiropractic Consultation, Sam will take a detailed history to find out what has brought you in to the clinic and to put a picture together as to what might be causing your problem. She will also ask questions to do with your general health, sleep quality, diet, stress levels, occupation and hobbies/activities.

You will then undergo a series of tests to determine what the cause of your problem is and how best to fix it. Sam will look at the picture globally, so please expect to have tests done which you may think are completely unrelated to your area of pain. Your examination will include:

• Chiropractic
• Postural Screening
• Breathing Pattern Assessment
• General Range of Motion
• Orthopaedic Tests
• Neurological Tests
• Vital Signs
• Chiropractic Palpation
• Soft Tissue Palpation
• Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) Tests
• Selective Functional Movement Assessment
• Muscle Length/Strength

After your examination, Sam will discuss with you how to get you the best results (pain reduction, prevention of re-occurrence and improved performance) and will suggest a bespoke course of treatment to achieve that.

This consultation and examination will take about an hour. If you know you would like treatment on the first visit, please select the full CORE Consultation & First Treatment option to allow enough time to do this.

Treatment techniques Sam uses include:

• Diversified Chiropractic
• Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilisation (DNS)
• Active Release Techniques (ART)
• Dry-Needling
• DNS based Pilates

Sam also works closely with DCC’s Soft Tissue Therapist Ash and will likely include specific Soft Tissue Therapy appointments in your course of treatment.
