In common with other healthcare professionals such as medical practitioners nurses and dentists, the chiropractic profession is regulated by law. Barnstaple chiropractor Steve Shapland is registered with the General Chiropractic Council and a member of the British Chiropractic Association. Your Doctor of Chiropractic completed a 4 year full-time degree course to become a Chiropractor at the University of Glamorgan in 2005.
At Barum Chiropractic we provide exceptional Chiropractic Care, personalised to each individual patient. A Chiropractic treatment appointment can include a combination treatments.
Chiropractors are trained to use manual manipulation techniques to free stiff joints with restricted movement. Known as Chiropractic adjustments, manipulation involves the chiropractor using their hands to apply quick, precise thrusts to the restricted joints. During manipulation there may be popping sounds. This is quite harmless. It is just the sound of gas bubbles popping in the fluid of the joints as pressure is released.
A Chiropractic treatment programme often takes place over a number of weeks, particularly if you have had the problem for a long time. Your can discuss appointment frequency at your initial consultation, and with evening and weekend appointments available, we should be able to book you in at a time that is convenient to you.
