CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT

Chiropractic is concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal manipulation or adjustment (World Federation of Chiropractic, 1999).

Based in Basingstoke, Hampshire, we tailor our treatments to the patient - for example lots of people are nervous about coming to the chiropractor. For those who dislike the 'clicking' sound of adjustments there are usually comfortable alternatives. We always work within the patient's tolerance and according to the patient's likes and dislikes. For those who don't mind needles Sally can perform acupuncture (dry needling).  

For people the new patient appointment takes about 1hr and covers a full history, examination and, where appropriate, treatment.  If you need any further appointments they are 30 minutes long.  

Wessex Chiropractic treats both people and animals. Animal chiropractic is becoming increasingly popular in the UK. It is a complementary healthcare treatment used alongside traditional veterinary care. Our dogs and horses may perform for us at the highest levels or be a much-loved family pet. Regardless, the stresses and strains of daily life take their toll and some animals, just like humans, suffer from injuries. 

Until recently a  vet was required to give permission before an animal could be treated by any other healthcare professional.  Now permission is STILL required when managing active disease or injury, but NOT if the goal of treatment is to maintain wellbeing and mobility in a healthy animal or to improve function and / or competitive performance in a healthy animal.
