Chiropractic Mission Statement
“We advise patients never to see any clinician more than four times unless they can feel good improvement.  Beware poor quality practitioners who ask you to sign up for 10 or more treatments… or who invite you back again and again for lots of treatments…. 

With expert diagnosis and treatment, it is simply not necessary!”

Low Back Pain and Sciatica

New NICE Guidelines for Low Back Pain and Sciatica

The guidelines state:

“Consider manual therapy (spinal manipulation, mobilisation or soft tissue techniques such as massage) for managing low back pain with or without sciatica, but only as part of a treatment package including exercise, with or without psychological therapy.”

Notably the full guideline states manipulation requires special training:
“Mobilisation and soft tissue techniques are performed by a wide variety of practitioners; whereas spinal manipulation is usually performed by chiropractors or osteopaths, and by doctors or
physiotherapists who have undergone additional training in spinal manipulation.”
