Spinal manipulation is offered by our osteopaths, chiropractor and physiotherapists as part of their treatment approaches for musculoskeletal pain such as back and neck pain.
Safe and gentle treatment
It’s a safe, gentle, painless and drug-free way to reduce muscle/joint tension and pain. Even though sometimes it creates an audible ‘pop’ or ‘crack’ (this is just some gas escaping from solution between the joints), the main effect is to help you move and feel better mostly in the short term.
Is spinal manipulation right for me?
All of our musculoskeletal health professionals are highly trained and highly skilled in spinal manipulation, and they will talk with you about whether or not it a suitable option for you.
Is spinal manipulation effective?
However, when combined with exercise and lifestyle changes, spinal manipulation becomes part of an effective treatment ‘package’ to overcome these common pain conditions in the longer term.
Patients often have lots of questions and confusion around spinal manipulation, so now for some myth-busting. Spinal manipulation:
- Doesn’t put bones ‘back in place’.
- Doesn’t ‘fix’ a ‘slipped disc’.
- Doesn’t change alignment or posture.
- Isn’t a magic fix.
