There are no limitations on who can be treated by a Chiropractor, from newborn babies to the aged.
People from all walks of life may benefit from chiropractic treatment. People with a range of musculoskeletal (problems with the joints, bones and muscles), particularly back pain, consult chiropractors.
There are some conditions in which certain therapies are contra-indicated but your Chiropractor is aware of these and will design a treatment plan to suit your needs.
Your chiropractor is trained in a variety of different techniques that can be used to treat many different types of patients. The techniques are adapted according to the following:
Height and body size
Age and the condition of your spine and joints relating to the current stage in your life
Your physical condition and strength
The type of injury that you present (for example acute, subacute or chronic)
