What is Chiropractic?
Explained by one of our doctors, Dr. Pamela Leader: “Chiropractic is a complementary/alternative health care profession. A chiropractic doctor is specialized in diagnosing and treating mechanical disorders of the spine (including the neck, mid-back, low-back and pelvis) and of the muscles and joints. This vastly expanding profession is based on the premise that a spinal joint dysfunction or rigidity can have a negative effect on your nervous system and result in many different conditions throughout your body, which may result in ill health.”
Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation
If you are suffering with back pain in Dubai, your first thoughts may be to call a physiotherapist. Although we offer excellent physiotherapy services at our clinic, the focus of our practice is purely based on our belief that chiropractic spinal manipulation is the most effective way to treat back, neck and thoracic pain. Our physiotherapists are highly trained to deal with inflammation and they use various techniques to decrease your healing time.
Massage Therapy Dubai
Often patients benefit from visiting our Massage Centre where we offer in-house Deep Tissue Massage, Therapeutic Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Sports Massage and Anti Stress Massage. Our experienced massage therapists are guided by our doctors to target zones of tension, provide pain relief and relax tense and sore muscles to help your rehabilitation.
Our Chiropractic Clinic, your way to health
We at the Emirates European Medical Centre always take a new patient through a careful and complete case history followed by a full physical examination before commencing any treatment. Only when we are convinced we have an accurate diagnosis do we implement and begin a treatment plan. We utilize a broad range of treatment methods, directed towards relieving musculoskeletal pain to ensure that our patient can live their life pain free. It is important that your long term health and peace of mind is achieved through these treatments.
