What is Chiropractic?

Explained by one of our Chiropractic Practitioners, Pamela Leader: “Chiropractic is a complementary/alternative health care profession. A chiropractic practitioner is specialised 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.”

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.
