Chiropractic in Kendal
The Lakeland Chiropractic Clinic
The Lakeland Chiropractic Clinic was established in 1993. With over 20 years in practice we have a wide experience of treating many different problems including: back pain, neck pain, shoulder problems, muscle, joint and posture problems; sports injuries; headaches; leg pain; and sciatica.
Many people live with back pain, neck pain, or pains in joints or muscles, because they believe there is little alternative; older people may assume these conditions are part of the natural ageing process. Most causes of these types of pain can be helped by Chiropractic treatment and therapy. If you have any of these symptoms please dont hesitate to call. We would be happy to discuss your condition with you, advise on possible causes, and offer help if possible.
To qualify as a Registered Chiropractor, and be recognised by the British Chiropractic Association, requires 5 years of full time study. This is the most extensive training undertaken by anyone involved in physical therapy.
The word "Chiropractic", derives from the Greek word meaning "done by hand". Chiropractic is a hands on type of therapy, using the hands to both diagnose and treat a wide variety of conditions. Information gained by examination, together with the symptoms and history of the complaint taken in the context of the person's medical history, lifestyle and personal circumstances, can lead to an understanding of a patient's condition. Isolating or diagnosing the source of a problem is the first step to therapy and successful chiropractic treatment.
Chiropractic Treatment in Kendal
Before treatment starts the chiropractor will explain what was found in the examination, the type and purpose of chiropractic treatments to be used, the likely prognosis, and how long the condition should take to respond to therapy.
Chiropractic treatment and therapy can involve a wide range of techniques, mainly done by hand, that aim to free up and correct disturbances in the joints and muscles. This can bring relief from symptoms and an increased feeling of well being. For some disorders specific rehabilitation exercises and postural correction can assist recovery, and when appropriate are included in the chiropractic treatment approach. The Chiropractor will always strive to use the therapy techniques that are not only most appropriate to treat the condition, but also most suitable and comfortable for each individual patient.
