Manchester Chiropractic Philosophy
Chiropractic is a profession concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of muscle, joint and entrapped nerve complaints and the effects that these disorders have on the body.
We are skilled in the knowledge of identifying the dysfunction in the muscles and joints of the body. We are then able to utilize the best and appropriate treatments to correct them.
By improving the function of muscles, nerves and joints we restore the natural function of the body relieving the accompanying pain and stiffness.
We treat the cause of the complaint not just the symptoms, this reduces the possibility of future recurrences and minimizes wear and tear in the tissues.
The dysfunction that leads to pain and stiffness arises from poor posture, repetitive strain injuries, accidents, stress, lack of exercise, physical stress and everyday wear and tear on the tissues.
Muscle can become over worked, weak and spasm. The loss of normal function of the spinal bones can cause compression and inflammation of the joints and nerves that exit from between the spinal vertebrae. These spinal nerves supply every part of your body. Through this connection, spinal problems can affect the function of muscles, joints and organs.
We use specific chiropractic adjustments (manipulations) of joints to restore their normal function. The result is increase in mobility, decreased pain and removal of irritation of the nerves restoring health.
We use a range of different techniques to relieve pain, muscle spasm and rehabilitate muscular dysfunction, such as deep tissue sports massage, stretching exercises, Trigenics and acupuncture to relax tight muscles. Applied kinesiology and strengthening exercises are used to treat weak muscle.

History of Chiropractic
The inception of chiropractic can be traced back to 1895 when Canadian Daniel David Palmer performed the first chiropractic adjustment and went on to found The Palmer School of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa in 1897.
The 20th century saw the growth and development of the profession worldwide, gaining recognition and respect for the place it has taken in the primary care environment. Influential research has underpinned the development of the profession and has come both from both within and outside of the chiropractic research communities.
Chiropractic is unique in that the profession is organised internationally and there are international standards for education.
The British Chiropractic Association (BCA) is the largest and longest-standing association for chiropractors in the UK. It was founded in 1925 and has a membership comprising well in excess of 50% of the UK’s registered chiropractors. The BCA only accepts members who have graduated from a nationally or internationally-recognised college of chiropractic education, after a minimum of four years full-time training and ensures its chiropractors maintain high standards of conduct, practice, education and training.
The BCA was a founder member of the European Chiropractors Union and the World Federation of Chiropractic.
All BCA members are covered by a high quality professional indemnity insurance and the Association operates a robust professional standards and complaints management process.

Back pain is one of the most common conditions in the UK and also one of the largest causes of work related absence. Back pain can effect anyone, and is not restricted to age but is more common is people who are between the ages of 35 and 55. Back Pain can also be very painful and uncomfortable but is not usually serious. In the majority, most causes of back pain can be linked to the way muscles, bones and ligaments in the back work together. Type of Back Pain: ‘ Lower Back Pain, Middle Back Pain, Upper Back Pain’ Salford Chiropractor ’Pete Swarbrick’ at Swinton Chiropractic is skilled in treating back aches/back pain for patients across Salford and Manchester.
Although sciatica is a relatively common form of low back pain and leg pain, the true meaning of the term is often misunderstood. Sciatica is a set of symptoms rather than a diagnosis for what is irritating the root of the nerve, causing the pain. This point is important, because treatment for sciatica or sciatic symptoms will often be different, depending upon the underlying cause of the symptoms.

Sports injuries can be broadly classified as either traumatic or overuse injuries. Traumatic injuries account for most injuries in contact sports such as Football, Rugby, Australian rules football, Gaelic football and American football because of the dynamic and high collision nature of these sports. These injuries range from bruises and muscle strains, to fractures and head injuries.

HEADACHES SALFORD / MIGRAINES SALFORD
A headache (cephalalgia in medical terminology) is a condition of pain in the head; sometimes neck or upper back pain may also be interpreted as a headache. It ranks amongst the most common local pain complaints and may be frequent for many people.
Migraine is a neurological syndrome characterized by altered bodily experiences, painful headaches, and nausea. It is a common condition which affects women more frequently than men.
The typical migraine headache is one-sided and pulsating, lasting 4 to 72 hours. Accompanying complaints are nausea and vomiting, and a heightened sensitivity to bright lights (photophobia) and noise (hyperacusis). Approximately one third of people who experience migraines get a preceding aura, in which a patient may sense a strange light or unpleasant smell.

SHOULDER PAIN SALFORD
Shoulder problems, including pain, are one of the more common reasons for physician visits for musculoskeletal symptoms. The shoulder is the most movable joint in the body. However, it is an unstable joint because of the range of motion allowed. It is easily subject to injury because the ball of the upper arm is larger than the shoulder socket that holds it. To remain stable, the shoulder must be anchored by its muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Some shoulder problems arise from the disruption of these soft tissues as a result of injury or from overuse or under use of the shoulder. Other problems arise from a degenerative process in which tissues break down and no longer function well.

NECK PAIN SALFORD
Neck pain (or cervicalgia) is a common problem, with two-thirds of the population having neck pain at some point in their lives. It is increasing in both intensity, frequency and severity of episodes. As people are increasingly sedentary, live fast-paced and hectic lives, they place more stress and strain on the upper back and neck regions of their spines.
Neck pain, although felt in the neck, can be caused by numerous other spinal issues. Neck pain may arise due to muscular tightness in both the neck and upper back. Joint disruption in the neck creates pain, as does joint disruption in the upper back.
The head is supported by the lower neck and upper back, and it is these areas that commonly cause neck pain. The top three joints in the neck allow for most movement of your neck and head. The lower joints in the neck and those of the upper back create a supportive structure for your head to sit on. If this support system is affected adversely, then the muscles in the area will tighten, leading to neck pain.
Neck pain may also arise from many other physical and emotional health issues.
