Cambridge Chiropractic Health Centre

Our Centre for Chiropractic Adjustment: It’s not just for Back Pain!

At Relief’s chiropractic health centre, we focus on being very specific to the individual. Our Cambridge chiropractor will analyse your joints to find out which areas have the most stress and the least movement. Your unique pattern tells us a lot about the health of your spine. It’s then our job to adjust those joints, allowing you to get the motion back and for your body to start healing properly.

Chiropractic is a mode of healthcare which focuses on the proper function of the framework of your body; the muscles, joints and bones. The majority of problems we see as Chiropractors are caused by a lack of normal motion in the joints due to daily stresses and injuries placed on our bodies. This leads to more stress on the nervous system as a whole, resulting in painful problems and abnormal function.

Your Initial Visit To a Chiropractor in Cambridge: What to Expect

We understand that your first visit to a chiropractor can be a new experience, and we aim to make it as comfortable and informative as possible. Here’s what you can expect during your initial visit to Relief Chiropractic Health Clinic

1. Intake and Warm Welcome

Before you arrive, we will encourage you to fill out an online intake form to share your health history, current concerns, and any specific goals you have for your chiropractic care. When you arrive, our friendly staff will greet you. They will also check any insurance claims you wish to make for your care.

2. Comprehensive Consultation

You will meet with one of our experienced chiropractors who will take the time to listen to your concerns and understand your health history. This consultation is an opportunity to discuss your symptoms, lifestyle, and any previous treatments you’ve had.

3. Thorough Examination

Our chiropractor in Cambridge will perform a detailed physical examination to assess your key areas of spinal stress, range of motion, and spinal alignment. This may include orthopaedic and neurological tests to pinpoint the source of your discomfort and any underlying issues.

4. Test Adjustment

In many cases, you will receive a ‘test adjustment’ during this initial visit. Our chiropractor will use gentle, precise techniques to promote better movement, find out more about your spine and begin the process of restoring proper function to your nervous system.

5. X-Ray (as appropriate)

Depending on your history, consultation, examination and test adjustment, your chiropractor may recommend an X-ray to fully explore and diagnose your issues. When justified, an X-ray is a fabulous tool for identifying areas of spinal stress and improving the plan of care going forwards

Based on your first visit, our chiropractor will develop a customised treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and health goals. This plan will outline the recommended frequency of visits over a period of time to support natural healing as quickly as possible.

Our Chiropractor in Cambridge FAQ’s

Does chiropractic hurt?

Chiropractic care is safe and gentle, though some people may experience mild discomfort or soreness after chiropractic adjustment. This is typically temporary and a normal part of the body’s natural response to realignment. Some patients are in significant pain when they arrive, so a certain amount of tenderness is unavoidable in these cases. Most patients find visiting our chiropractor in Cambridge relieving and experience improved mobility and reduced pain without significant discomfort.

How much does chiropractic care cost?

We aim to make our healthcare accessible to all, which is why our visits are offered at a low rate and our chiropractor costs come with no hidden extras. We also offer payment plans to allow you to make a great saving. Find out more about our chiropractor prices here.

Is chiropractic safe?

Chiropractic care is generally safe when performed by trained professionals. Risks are minimal, with rare occurrences of adverse effects such as temporary soreness or stiffness. Chiropractors are primary healthcare providers, meaning that they are highly trained and will be able to assess the appropriateness of adjustment using assessment, X-ray (where appropriate) and skill.

 

Are chiropractic x-rays safe?

Chiropractic X-rays are generally considered safe when used appropriately and performed by trained professionals. They involve minimal radiation exposure, often lower than other medical imaging procedures. To put it into context, a lumbopelvic X-ray is only the equivalent of the radiation received on a transatlantic flight!  However, x-rays are only recommended when necessary for diagnosis or treatment planning, and precautions are taken to minimise radiation exposure. Learn more about our x-ray services.

Are regular chiropractic visits necessary?

Regular chiropractic visits can be beneficial for maintaining spinal health, preventing injuries, and managing chronic conditions. They help ensure proper alignment, mobility, and function of the spine and nervous system. However, the frequency of visits depends on individual needs, health goals, and the recommendations of our Cambridge chiropractor.

Does chiropractic take insurance?

At Relief Chiropractic Health Clinic we do accept insurance, but coverage varies depending on the provider and the patient’s plan. Some insurance plans include chiropractic care as part of their benefits, while others may require co-pays or have limitations on covered services. It’s advisable to check with both the chiropractor and the insurance provider for specific details. Learn more about insurance for chiropractic care here.

What is the chiropractic and physiotherapy difference?

The main differences are that of training and approach. Chiropractors have the training to take X-ray and interpret imaging, allowing them to be very specific with their adjustment.  Chiropractic focuses on spinal adjustments to restore proper joint motion, alignment and nervous system function. Physiotherapists employ various modalities, especially exercise and massage to improve muscle strength and general function. However, the main difference is often one of philosophy.  Chiropractors have a philosophy that isn’t solely driven by symptoms, instead aiming for optimal spinal health, not simply the removal of pain.

What's the difference between osteopath and chiropractic?

The main differences are that of training and approach. Chiropractors have the training to take X-ray and interpret imaging, allowing them to be very specific with their adjustment.  Chiropractic focuses on spinal adjustments to restore proper joint motion, alignment and nervous system function. Osteopaths however use a combination of broader manipulation and soft tissue massage techniques. Much like physiotherapy there is a similar difference in philosophy of practice.  Chiropractors have a philosophy that isn’t solely driven by symptoms, instead aiming for optimal spinal health, not simply the removal of pain.

Does chiropractic help slipped disc?

Chiropractic care can help alleviate symptoms of a slipped disc by using gentle spinal adjustments to relieve pressure on the affected disc and surrounding nerves. These adjustments aim to improve spinal alignment, reduce inflammation, and promote natural healing, often providing relief from pain and discomfort associated with a slipped disc.  Ultimately, like all injuries the body’s job is to heal from injury.  The issue with slipped disks is that the area locks down, where it needs to keep moving to heal.  Chiropractic care can help speed up the healing process, by promoting natural movement around the injured area.

Does chiropractic help posture?

Chiropractic care can improve posture by addressing underlying spinal misalignments and muscular imbalances. Through spinal adjustments, stretches, and exercises, chiropractors help restore proper alignment, which can alleviate strain on muscles and joints, leading to improved posture and overall musculoskeletal health.

Can chiropractic help sciatica?

Chiropractic care can effectively relieve sciatica by targeting the underlying cause, often spinal misalignments or herniated discs, through gentle adjustments. These adjustments aim to alleviate pressure on the sciatic nerve, reduce inflammation, and promote natural healing, providing relief from pain, numbness, and tingling associated with sciatica.
