Painkillers vs Chiropractic
Painkillers aim to treat the symptoms of the problem and mask the pain. However, Chiropractors aim to treat the cause of the problem rather than treating the symptoms.
Do I need a referral from a Doctor?
No, you don’t need a referral from your doctor. You can make an appointment directly at Sophie Chiropractic Clinic.
How do Chiropractors treat?
Chiropractors use a large range of non-invasive techniques which enables them to offer personalised care to suit an individual. The main techniques are adjustments (manipulation), trigger point therapy, dry needling (also commonly known as acupuncture), stretching and mobilisation.
How many visits do I need?
The treatment plan depends on many factors like age and the severity of the problem. However, the sooner you see a chiropractor for your complaint the more likely that your complaint can be resolved sooner.
Does chiropractic hurt?
Generally chiropractic treatments do not hurt. However, sometimes chiropractic treatments can be slightly uncomfortable when working on tender areas. Our Chiropractor Sophie will always ensure that you feel comfortable during your treatment.
