Chiropractors typically treat disorders of a mechanical nature. Research evidence has shown the treatments we use and the advice we give can be effective for:

  • Acute low back pain
  • Chronic low back pain
  • Lumbago
  • Frozen shoulder*
  • Shoulder girdle pain/dysfunction*
  • Tennis elbow*
  • Hip osteoarthritis**
  • Knee osteoarthritis**
  • Patellofemoral pain syndrome
  • Migraine prevention
  • Cervicogenic headache
  • Acute mechanical neck pain
  • Chronic mechanical neck pain
  • Tension and inability to relax
  • General aches and pains of the joints, muscle spasms and cramp

* associated with musculoskeletal conditions of the neck and back
** as an adjunct to core osteoarthritic treatments and exercise

Chiropractors have traditionally treated many other conditions but we have only listed conditions for which there is robust research evidence of effectiveness. Professor Bronfort has recently reviewed the evidence and upgraded the advice given in respect of SCIATICA which now has research backing of a quality to provide 'moderate evidence of effectiveness for manipulation/mobilisation treatment'.
