How can we help you?
Chiropractors use their hands to restore normal movement of restricted joints of the spine and limbs. Incorrect joint movement leads to increased strain resulting in injury to the joints, muscles, ligaments and nerves and this will inevitably lead to pain.
By restoring normal movement to your joints you remove the strain on ligaments, relieve muscle spasm, improve how the spinal discs function and release nerves that may be ‘trapped’. ‘Trapped’ nerves not only cause pain locally, but can also refer it from the neck to the arm and shoulder or from the back to the buttock and legs. Poor joint movement can lead to early ‘wear and tear’ and osteoarthritis.
Regular chiropractic check-up appointments will help to maintain your health.
What happens on your first visit to one of our clinics?
We will examine you, diagnose your problem, explain what is wrong and prescribe a treatment plan. We prefer to commence treatment the same day.
What is the chiropractic ‘click’?
The chiropractic manipulative ‘adjustment’ is made to restore normal joint movement. It is often accompanied with the sound of an audible release of the joint. This is due to the joint capsule straightening out when the joint surfaces separate and then release. This is one of the treatment methods used to help relieve painful joints. The treatment improves overall joint function, reduces inflammation and muscle spasm thereby relieving any aches and pains.
What exercises should I do?
An exercise rehabilitation programme will be designed specifically for you and your condition to achieve the maximum benefit from your treatment and help prevent reoccurrence of your pain by strengthening and providing stability for your problem area. (see Rehabilitation Exercise for more details)
Regular monthly or three monthly chiropractic check-up appointments will help to maintain the movement of the joints and how the muscles and ligaments of these joints work. This will help to avoid recurrent episodes of discomfort and stiffness.

If you’re suffering from pain in the back or neck, it could very well be down to the joints in your spine and limbs being restricted. If your joints aren’t moving around as they should, this can lead to injury of the muscles, nerves, as well as ligaments because of the extra strain that is placed on them.
Here at the House Clinics, our skilled chiropractors in Bristol can help to remove this extra strain by restoring normal movement to the joints. We can also manipulate the spine to encourage normal functioning of the spinal discs and help to relieve any muscle spasms.
Another typical cause of pain are trapped nerves. Not only does this affect the area local to the trapped nerve, but it can also indirectly affect other areas of the body including the shoulder and arm and from the back down to the legs.
If left untreated, restricted joint movement can eventually lead to osteoarthritis so it’s highly advisable that you seek the treatment of one of our Bristol chiropractors or physiotherapists.
It is also highly recommended that you have regular check-ups to ensure recovery and further strengthen your body against future problems.
Chiropractic treatment mainly focuses on spinal manipulation to restore your joints to full movement. Physiotherapy also aims to help restore your ligaments, joints and muscles through the use of physical manual therapy, as well as exercises that you will be able to carry out in the comfort of your home.
Our highly skilled physiotherapists will be able to provide you with all the help and advice you need, including specially designed exercises that will help to return your body to peak condition.
