Wholesome Health Chiropractic:

Our Chiropractors will spend time discussing in detail your problem, lifestyle and goals for your health. They will thoroughly assess your body, including the movement of your joints and the function of your nervous system.

We’ll work with you to create a treatment plan that’s effective, safe, and tailored to your unique needs. This may include:
– Chiropractic adjustments (clicks and pops),
– Massage and
– Nutritional and lifestyle advice.

Every client we see has the opportunity to follow an individualised exercise plan to improve flexibility, build strength and increase your body’s long-term resilience.

We aim to keep your nervous system functioning and healing well, meaning you can handle whatever life sends your way.

Chiropractic care is safe, drug-free, and suitable for all ages (from infants to seniors), making it the best option for natural and holistic healthcare.

How do adjustments work?

An adjustment is form of manual therapy performed by professionally trained Chiropractors, aimed to reducing pain and dysfunction. It involves applying a controlled and specific force to the spine, or other joints, by using the hands or an activator (clicking tool).

During a chiropractic adjustment, sometimes you may hear a harmless clicking or popping sound (this is harmless gas bubbles being released). In fact, this is often accompanied by a feeling of relief and relaxation.

As well as reducing pain, chiropractic adjustments can help to improve posture, reduce muscle tension, and enhance overall body function.

What are the benefits of an adjustment?

Adjustments can…

  • Improve your joint mobility and muscle tension.
  • Reduce nerve irritation from inflammation around joint problems.
  • Restore the brain-body communication so nerves work at their best.
  • Facilitate your body’s natural ability to heal and function optimally.

… keep you feeling, functioning and living well.

Whether you are seeking relief from back pain, headaches, or would like to continue living life to the fullest, Chiropractic care may be able to help you achieve your health and wellness goals.

What causes joint stiffness?

One common cause of interference to the nervous system is restrictions or misalignments of the spinal joints. These restrictions can occur due to physical trauma, poor posture, or repetitive movements and stress, and can interfere with the transmission of signals between the brain and the rest of the body. Joint restrictions can lead to a range of symptoms, including stiffness, reduced mobility, and also pain.

Through manual adjustments and other techniques, Chiropractors work to restore proper movement and function to the spine. This retunes the nerves that connect the brain to the body and focuses on reducing pain as well as improving overall health and well-being.

How is pain caused?

There are many causes of pain, often it is due to joints stiffening and not working properly, and surrounding nerves being irritated. When interference to the nervous system occurs, the body may experience a range of symptoms, including pain, numbness, tingling, weakness, and other issues.

Nerve irritation can cause dull achy, or sharp shooting pain and this can be felt along any part of the nerve. For instance, foot pain could be coming from the nerve in your back that runs down your leg – this could be ‘sciatica’.

As our nerves control our function and our healing, our Chiropractors aim to remove the interruptions to the nervous system, improving your health of your spine and to promote the body’s natural healing process.

Over a century old, Chiropractic has gained popularity in recent years as people seek natural and holistic healthcare solutions.
Chiropractors undergo rigorous training and education, including a four-year doctoral program, to become licensed healthcare professionals. They are trained in a variety of techniques to manipulate and adjust the spine and other joints in the body to improve mobility, remove nerve irritation and reduce pain, and enhance overall well-being.
Chiropractic care is often sought out for musculoskeletal issues, such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches. However, chiropractors also treat a variety of other conditions, including muscle spasms and cramp, symptoms due to tension and the inability to relax and also migraine prevention.
Our spines are vital parts of our body, as they house and protect the spinal cord, which is responsible for transmitting signals between the brain and the rest of the body. When the spine is restricted or misaligned, inflammation around the joint irritates nerves locally and disrupts their communication. We can then develop stiffness, pain and reduced mobility anywhere along these nerves as well as struggle to heal. For instance, a pain or problem in your arm or hand may be coming from your neck as that is where the nerves originate.

Steph is a fantastic chiropractor and above all a wonderful person. She helps me keep my spine in optimal order after initially helping me with a lower back and neck pain issue. Thank you Steph for the brilliant care!

Over the past few months I have had an issue with my left shoulder and arm causing me pain. I have never previously sought any chiropractic treatment but to be honest was convinced by my wife to seek some help as she was fed up with my constant bleating about it! Stephanie is professional and attentive and takes a holistic approach explaining clearly what she is doing and why and giving clear advice as to what you can do to improve the situation yourself, in addition to adjustments she has supplied me with a programme of stretches with videos showing the correct way to do them and given me advice regarding my posture. Stephanie was clear at the beginning of my treatment that this would not be a quick fix, I have however noticed a definite improvement in the pain and in the mobility of my arm over a few weeks. It is a work in progress though!

100% 5***** I have been going to Wholesome Life Chiropractic for a number of years now so when Ian announced he was leaving I was a bit sceptical about Stephanie taking over. But I have to say I didn't need to worry, she super friendly, professional, engaging and very knowledgeable. I can definitely recommend Stephanie at Wholesome Life and all her staff. Thank you x🥰 Stephanie who's taken over is a fantastic Chiropractor and I'd fully recommend 👍
Steph is great. Very friendly, puts you at ease and explains everything she's doing so well. The treatment itself is great but she also gives you exercises and things to do at home that help too. If you're thinking about chiropractic then get in touch with Steph. Update: I have now also had a hot stone massage with Natasha. 10/10! I would highly recommend.
We only start care with our clients that we are confident we can help. With regular re-assessments that monitoring your improvement, we will happily refer you for futher investigations if we feel necessary.
A lot of our clients have osteoarthritis, also know as wear and tear in the spine, and this is a perfectly normal change with aging. However, just because your spine may be a little rusty, it definitely doesn’t need to be painful. This pain may be due to the lack of movement of the joints, so with some gentle encouragement, your body can work and feel better – just like using some WD40!
The vast majority of our clients have had pain for many years and do respond very well to Chiropractic care. Our bodies always try and do their best to heal. So we will work with you to ensure our treatment and some lifestyle changes enable your body to have the best amount of improvement.
As we thoroughly assess you, taking a complete medical history and examination, our Chiropractors are trained to recognise anything outside of their area of expertise. They will let you know if you need to be referred for some further tests or scans.
