Chiropractic comes from the Greek, meaning “done by hand”. It is a
collection of natural hands-on techniques, which do not make use of drugs or
surgery. Chiropractic is non-invasive and is primarily concerned with the
functioning of the musculoskeletal system, which is the muscles, bones,
ligaments, tendons and cartilage that form the physical structure of the body.
Following assessment, treatment takes place using precise, very small
movements (adjustments) to allow the joints to function normally; in addition
massage and stretching techniques are sometimes used. Home exercises may also
be recommended, along with dietary or nutritional changes to help the body to
return to normal function more rapidly.
The basic concept of chiropractic is that a spinal problem can have wide
reaching effects through nerve disturbance. Most of the nerves to the limbs
and internal organs originate from the spine. Thus a problem in the spine can
lead to interference in nerve pathways and this in turn can cause pain or loss
of function in the areas the nerves supply.
Chiropractic is now the third largest healthcare profession in the western
Chiropractic Education and Recognition
Dr Alison Harvey followed a full
time five year course at the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in
Bournemouth. She is registered with the General
Chiropractic Council (GCC), a statutory body that has regulated
chiropractic in the UK since June 2001. The GCC ensures only safe, properly
trained practitioners can call themselves ‘chiropractor’, providing
quality assurance for patients.
Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a system of muscle testing for evaluating the
body. It tests structural, chemical and electromagnetic or energy functions of
the body, based on the principle that the body is a self-maintaining and
AK uses muscles to test for basic mechanical defects, organ
and gland dysfunction, cranial and pelvic distortions, allergies, toxicity
problems and stress levels in the body.
Treatment draws on the knowledge of various natural health
therapies including manipulation, massage, cranial work, acupressure and
advice on nutritional support, diet and the use of homeopathic remedies and
herbs. This means the practitioner can approach the health concerns of the
body in a holistic manner and consider not only the structure of the body
(which is primarily addressed in chiropractic care) but also consider the
chemical and emotional functioning of the individual.
CranioSacral Therapy is concerned with achieving optimum freedom of function
of the cerebrospinal system and the connective tissues of the body. The
cerebrospinal system consists of the brain and spinal cord and the fluid,
membranes and bones which surround them. The title “CranioSacral” comes
from cranium (bones of the skull) which surrounds the upper end of the
cerebral spinal system and the sacrum (tail bone) which provides the lower
attachment of the system.
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, light touch, non-invasive
technique which aims to allow the body to self-correct. Using the bones
surrounding the cerebrospinal system as handles, any restrictions can be
released, allowing normal function to be re-established.
CranioSacral Therapy provides a very useful adjunct to
chiropractic. It can be used in all age groups, and indeed is perhaps best
known for the treatment of children and babies for conditions such as learning
difficulties and colic respectively. In adults, CranioSacral Therapy is often
used to treat headaches and migraine, immune conditions, chronic pain,
fatigue, depression and problems following accidents.
