WHAT DO CHIROPRACTORS DO?

Chiropractors most commonly adjust the spine by using their hands to apply pressure, known as a high-velocity low amplitude thrust, on areas that do not have a normal range of motion. Sometimes this causes an audible “pop”.

Practitioners also use mobilisation as well as various physical therapy and manual procedures.

Although spinal manipulation is the key component of chiropractic care, most practitioners take a holistic approach and include such procedures as nutrition counselling and exercise advice in their treatment programme.
The majority of patients seen by chiropractors suffer low back pain, however, chiropractors treat a wide range of neuromuscular and musculoskeletal conditions, including headaches, neck and thoracic pain, myofascial pain syndromes, sports injuries and other joint conditions.

What can DUT provide for you in terms of chiropractic?

The Chiropractic Day Clinic at the Durban University of Technology provides chiropractic care to the public.

The care is provided by supervised students who are completing their Master’s in chiropractic.
All consultations are made by appointment. As a training clinic, the initial consultation at a Chiropractic Day Clinic includes a case history, full physical and regional examinations followed by treatment - if applicable.

Thereafter consultations are scheduled as a result of the specific treatment plan that is agreed upon.

Feel free to call the Chiropractic Day Clinic should you wish to make an appointment or should you require a more in-depth explanation of the clinical process and or costs involved before you decide to attend the clinic.

The Chiropractic Day Clinic can be contacted on 031 373 2205 or 031 373 2511.
