The biggest benefit of chiropractic care is that invasive surgery or pharmaceutical drugs are not involved in the process. Different types of techniques are used by the chiropractor for analyzing, locating and correcting vertebral misalignments within the spine. Generally the techniques used by the chiropractors include massage, ultrasound, electrical muscular stimulation or manual adjustments. The healing process of the body is stimulated in a natural way without the use of artificial techniques or products.

      Thanks for this terrific video. I wathecd it because I'm trying to decide whether my 7 yr old daughter has a virus or something more sinister. She's booked in to the Dr this morning but I wanted to go in armed with info as I am suspicious that many appendix are removed unnecessarily and I am v v keen to avoid this, obviously. Her pain is sometimes severe and then appears to ease, often after vomiting. She has had no diarrhoea but then she hasn't eaten for 48 hours. I am not after a diagnosis from you, naturally, but could you suggest some positive/negative foods that could help? I know how important diet is and the food in uk hospitals (which hopefully we will not be subjected to)is CRAP. Cheers! Not a worried mother, but this time a bit concerned Charlie Williams

      I swear by my chiropractor. I inherited a weak back from my parents and damaged it pretty severely while tubing when I was 16. I had seen a chiropractor before, but I did not start going regularly until after I spent the rest of that summer in constant pain. No position was comfortable and I was working 12 hour shifts most days. I'm not sure I would have ever recovered from that accident without help from my chiropractor. Since then she's helped alleviate my chronic headaches and dizziness, and begun to fix some of the alignment problems in my back, hips, and neck. She's a godsend.
