What Does A Chiropractor Do?

A chiropractor is a specialised healthcare professional with a MChiro qualification gained after five years of university training. They are trained to diagnose, treat, and manage disorders of the musculoskeletal system, including issues stemming from discs, joints, muscles, ligaments, and body nerves.

Chiropractors use various techniques to restore normal joint motion and proper alignment to the injured area, thus enabling the body to heal and recover. These techniques can include spinal manipulation, soft tissue therapy, exercise prescription, and lifestyle advice. The focus of chiropractic treatment is to alleviate pain, improve function, and enhance the body’s natural ability to heal. Chiropractors work closely with their patients to develop personalised treatment plans that may also include ongoing maintenance and preventative care. Overall, chiropractors play a vital role in promoting overall health and well-being by addressing musculoskeletal issues and helping patients achieve optimal physical function.

What does a chiropractic adjustment treat/manage?

At Head2Toe in our Carrigaline clinic, we use chiropractic adjustments to treat and manage a variety of musculoskeletal issues. These adjustments primarily focus on manipulating the spine in order to improve alignment and alleviate pressure on the nervous system. This can help to reduce pain and improve overall function in areas such as the back, neck, shoulders, and hips. Chiropractic adjustments can also be effective in managing headaches, migraines, and other types of chronic pain. By addressing the root cause of the problem, rather than just masking the symptoms, chiropractic care at Head2Toe in Carrigaline can provide long-term relief and improve the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Additionally, regular adjustments can help to prevent future issues and maintain a healthy, well-functioning body. Overall, chiropractic adjustments are a safe and effective way to manage a wide range of conditions and improve overall health and well-being.

Dr. Nayna Boohla was incredible adjusting my twisted back and hips after a fall I took in the rain on holiday. She is very caring and incredibly knowledgable at chiropractic and Accupuncture. And only because of her I could continue my trip for another 3 weeks.

Yvonne is a miracle worker! I was in pain for months with lower back pain and nothing was working--went to Yvonne at Head to Toe and over time she has made my pain manageable and most days non-existent! She listened to me and we worked out a plan that included me getting back to the gym and getting off pain killers, and so far its working out brilliantly! I can actually move again and enjoy my life which frankly, didn't seem possible 6 months ago...I cannot recommend Yvonne highly enough-Thank you!

I had my first session yesterday! After years of injuring my back while working I’ve had masseuses refuse to touch it out of fear of damaging my back even more. I’ve had numbness in my arm, terrible sleeping patterns and my lower back locks up very often. Out of fear, I was nervous to try acupuncture but Nayna was so calm and made the process very relaxing. She took all the time she needed, clicking and relieving my back, neck, arms, pelvis and legs. I slept like a baby last night for the first time in ages! My back was so inflamed and I can now feel the instant relief after going only once. It is costly but so so worth it (in my opinion the expense of going to many cheaper places adds up and doesn’t have the same effect). I’m able to go about my day pain free and I’m not even taking any pain killers or anti inflammatories, I feel amazing! Thank you Nayna X

I went to Barry Murphy Mid April for physical therapy treatment due to ongoing pain in my left hip and lower back brought on from running. In short Barry was fantastic. Not only did he help alleviate symptoms he also gave me the tools and skills to ensure that I wont end up in the same place again. Thanks to Barry, I now have a much better understanding of my body and how it works and how to take care of it. Finally he's a lovely guy and completely put me at my ease.
