May 6, 2015: Ever thought about visiting a Chiropractor?
Have you ever thought about visiting a Chiropractor but wondered what they do? We took some time to speak to our Chiropractic team – Rebecca Rees (BSC) and Dr Lucy Steel (BSc, MSc, DC) to find out a bit more about what they do, how they could help you and about a typical days work, here is what they had to say:
How long have you been a Chiropractor?
Rebecca: I studied for my BSc in Chiropractic treatment at the Anglo European College of Chiropractic in 1994. I have been practicing for the last 21 years.
Lucy: I studied for my BSc in Human Biology at Leeds University and my MSc and DC in Chiropractic at the University of Surrey in 2004. I have been practicing for the last 13 years.
What governing bodies are you a member of?
We are both members of the British Chiropractic Association (BCA) and registered with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC).
What is a Chiropractic treatment?
Chiropractic treatment focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system and the effects of these disorders on general health.
What symptoms can you help treat?
We can help manage clients who might have (but not limited to): back pain, neck pain, pain in joints/ muscles and headaches.
How do you treat these symptoms?
We help manage the discomfort through working on all the joints of the body, concentrating particularly on the spine/ spinal cord. We use their hands to make specific, gentle adjustments (the chiropractic term for manipulation) to improve mobility of joints, efficiency of the nervous system and release the body’s natural healing ability.
What could your clients expect on their first visit?
During your initial consultation we would explain about Chiropractic care and understand your personal situation through physical examination, observations and X-rays as needed. Our Chiropractors support the treatment they offer with individual guidance on lifestyle, work and exercise to help manage the condition. We will agree with our clients their ongoing treatment requirements.
Who could benefit from Chiropractic treatment?
People of all ages can benefit from chiropractic treatment, from a newly born baby through to older people.
Tell us one interesting thing about you?
Rebecca: My belief is that you are never too old to benefit from chiropractic treatment.
Lucy: My passion lies in the care of pregnant women, babies and children, most of my post-graduate training has been in these areas.
