Chiropractic is a science and art that corrects various aches and pains resulting from one or more misaligned vertebrae or other joints. These misalignments are corrected manually by hand or instrument. When these misalignments involve nerve interference, we call them subluxations. Scofield clinic chiropractic techniques include Gonstead and SOT among others.
Subluxations may result in pinching of the nerves as they pass between the vertebrae which then results in aches and pains - even numbness.
Gentle hands-on approach
Chiropractors correct subluxations with gentle adjustments which involve realigning the vertebrae and restoring movement to the joint involved. The adjustment is usually done by applying a very fast, very shallow precise thrust to restore its position and mobility. This correction can also be accomplished by light constant pressure or even using an instrument which is specifically engineered to move the bone as effectively and as gently as possible.
By restoring the position and movement of the joint, chiropractic care targets the actual cause of the pain. When normal movement is restored, it becomes a very successful way to eliminating back pain for thousands of people every year in the UK.
If you are suffering from back pain you are not alone.
Government studies show that low back pain alone affects 80% of the population at least once in their lifetime.
Our clinic draws from a variety of approaches and treatment methods in targeting your pain. Dr Nothling is trained in over 17 methods or techniques so he is able to adapt treatment according to the circumstances and take a much broader approach in choosing the best therapy for your condition.
Our clinic offers not only chiropractic care but also exercise therapy. We believe in taking the patient all the way to their full potential by showing them how to stop the cycle of reoccurring pain and a way to help themselves maintain an optimized body for a better quality of life.
Some of the more commonly known chiropractic techniques that Dr Nothling is qualified to use are:
Although we are very skilled in finding the misalignments and distorted movement in your body, we do not know what its like to live in that body. That is why we listen carefully to all feedback that the patients provide. Together, we choose the treatment approach that the patient feels comfortable with while producing the desired outcome and results.
