There are no limitations on who can be treated by a Chiropractor, from newborn babies to the aged.
People from all walks of life may benefit from chiropractic treatment. People with a range of musculoskeletal (problems with the joints, bones and muscles), particularly back pain, consult chiropractors.
There are some conditions in which certain therapies are contra-indicated but your Chiropractor is aware of these and will design a treatment plan to suit your needs.
Your chiropractor is trained in a variety of different techniques that can be used to treat many different types of patients. The techniques are adapted according to the following:
- Height and body size
- Age and the condition of your spine and joints relating to the current stage in your life
- Your physical condition and strength
- The type of injury that you present for example acute, subacute or chronic
