Spinal manipulation must only be performed by qualified practitioners and all the staff are trained in Stuart’s methods and all have a diploma in spinal manipulation.
Manipulation involves the manipulation of the spinal segments which have become hypo mobile (stopped moving), this is achieved through short high velocity low aptitude thrusts to the affected joint.
The benefits of spinal manipulation include reduced pain and inflammation and improved flexibility and also relieve pressure on the joints, as well as reducing muscle spasm. The restoration of normal nerve function allows mobilisation of movement and function. The brains recognition of muscle memory and restoration of normal movement will eventually ‘reboot’ the body computer i.e. the brain.
Spinal manipulation combined with other intervention e.g. taping, stretching massage and exercise will normally settle the problem down.
