Common questions that we are asked:

Because chiropractic is still seen as an ‘alternative’ to mainstream medical treatment, it is easy to be unsure of when to use it. Additionally, there are a myriad of alternative treatment methods and deciding which of these to use can become confusing. Here, we attempt to clarify these matters as well as debunking some of the myths that surround chiropractic.

How to choose a good chiropractor:

At the London Wellness Centre we will always treat patients individually. Your treatment will be decided following a thorough assessment which uses muscle testing, postural analysis, detailed examination and a full medical history. A Chiropractor should never treat you without this type of assessment. They should never hurt, aside from a feeling of pressure or mild discomfort. When looking for a reputable chiropractor, make sure they are registered with the GCC and that they provide this type of thorough service.

Do chiropractors crack your back?

‘Chiropractor back cracking’ is usually the main fear that people have when visiting a chiropractor for the first time.

Following on from the above answer, chiropractic treatments will be very specific to an individual and their condition and general health. Contrary to some opinions, chiropractor back cracking techniques are very controlled and should never be painful: the sound you hear is, in fact, gas escaping from your joints. It has nothing to do with the bones themselves.
