Chiropractic – What Does It Mean?
Many people live with back pain, neck pain, or pains in joints or muscles, because they believe there is little alternative; older people may assume these conditions are part of the natural ageing process. Most causes of these types of pain can be helped by Chiropractic treatment and therapy. If you have any of these symptoms one of the team of chiropractors at Lakeland Chiropractic Clinic Kendal will be happy to advise on possible causes and discuss therapy with you.
To qualify as a Registered Chiropractor and be recognised by the British Chiropractic Association, requires 5 years of full time study. This is the most extensive training undertaken by anyone involved in physical therapy.
The word 'Chiropractic', derives from the Greek word meaning 'done by hand'. Chiropractic is a hands on type of therapy, using the hands to both diagnose and treat a wide variety of conditions. Information gained by examination, together with the symptoms and history of the complaint taken in the context of the person's medical history, lifestyle and personal circumstances, can lead to an understanding of a patient's condition. Isolating or diagnosing the source of a problem is the first step to therapy and successful chiropractic treatment.
Chiropractic Treatment at Lakeland Chiropractic Clinic
Before treatment begins one of the chiropractors at the Lakeland Chiropractic Clinic in Kendal will explain what was learnt in the examination, the type and purpose of suitable chiropractic treatments, the likely prognosis, and how long the condition should take to respond to therapy.
Chiropractic treatment and therapy can involve a wide range of techniques, mainly performed by hand, that aim to free up and correct disturbances within the joints and muscles. This can bring relief from symptoms and an increased feeling of well-being.
For some disorders specific rehabilitation exercises and postural correction can assist recovery, and when appropriate are included in the chiropractic treatment approach. The Chiropractor will always strive to use the therapy techniques that are not only most appropriate to treat the condition, but also most suitable and comfortable for each individual patient.

Self-Help Guide by Mark Smith
Mark Smith of The Lakeland Chiropractic Clinic has published a self-help guide 'Relieving Back and Neck Pain, What To Do and Why'. According to Mark for people with injuries such as back pain, neck pain and associated problems such as sciatica, good advice and knowing do's and don’ts can be just as important as treatment. Drawing on his many years in practice as a chiropractor, Mark has compiled the advice and exercises that his patients have found most effective and easy to follow.
Originally he compiled the manual as a reference and reminder for his patients. The book received such a positive response from patients that it encouraged him to have it published. Following successful publication it is now also available in Kindle format. 'Relieving Back and Neck Pain, What To Do and Why' by Mark Smith ISBN 978-1494897611 is available on Amazon and as a Kindle download and from Suttons Bookshop at 48 Market Street, Ulverston, LA12 7LS.
