On your first consultation we will take your full case history and also assess your painful condition/injury. Once we have identified the root-cause of your painful condition or injury we will address this by treating the appropriate area.

Your treatment is typically carried out through light clothing and is a hands-on approach. Your treatment involves applying pressure to muscles that have been identified as being dysfunctional in order to restore your musculature to a healthy state. The pressure applied can range from light to deep pressure. However, patient comfort is paramount and the amount of pressure used is determined by your age and the body-type. For example, the pressure used on an elderly client would be much lighter than the pressure used on a strong rugby player in his twenties.


In addition, some light work may also be done on your joints if necessary. You may also be given some home-exercises/home-care advice to help your recovery. Here are just some of the conditions that we successfully treat on a regular basis:

  • Back Pain
  • Sport’s Injuries
  • Sciatica
  • Muscle Pain

DD Palmer is first credited with starting the chiropractic profession in the nineteenth century. His son BJ Palmer also became a chiropractor and was responsible for much of the spread of the chiropractic profession in the 20th century.

What Techniques are used in Chiropractic? Limerick Pain Relief Clinic Article.

Assessment techniques can vary from chiropractor to chiropractor. Some of the more common chiropractic assessment techniques are listed below:

    • Chiropractic Assessment Technique #1: Palpation

This is a core diagnostic model for almost all chiropractors. Your joints are felt during movement to determine their quality of movement and detect any dysfunctions.

    • Chiropractic Assessment Technique #2: X-Ray

Your chiropractor may have analytical X-Rays taken to identify joint subluxations and other structural dysfunctions in your spine.

    • Chiropractic Assessment Technique #3: Thermography

The surface temperature of your body is measured and displayed on a print-out. Your chiropractor may use this to help identify the location of any spinal dysfunctions that you may have.

    • Chiropractic Assessment Technique #4: Leg Checking

Your chiropractor may check your leg length in various positions to help determine the root cause of pain originating from your spine or pelvis.

In addition to varying assessment approaches, chiropractors also use a number of different treatment approaches. These approaches can sometimes be very different from one another and between others the differences are very subtle.

    • Chiropractic Treatment Technique #1: Diversified Technique

This is the most generic of all the chiropractic treatment systems. It is the basic form of chiropractic taught in almost all of the major chiropractic colleges.

    • Chiropractic Treatment Technique #2: Activator Method

Your chiropractor may use a mechanical hand-held device called an activator to make adjustments.

    • Chiropractic Treatment Technique #3: Thompson Technique

This technique was developed by a chiropractor called J Clay Thompson. Your chiropractor may use a custom treatment table called a drop table if this method is used.

    • Chiropractic Treatment Technique #4: Gonstead Chiropractic Technique

This approach was developed by a chiropractor called Clarence Gonstead. Your chiropractor may use this method. It has its own unique diagnostic model and treatment approach.

The approach your chiropractor will take largely depends on what college they studied at and what continuous education they have undertaken. Even though there are a lot of different chiropractic technique systems there is considerable overlap between most of them. The treatment that your chiropractor will administer will typically involve spinal adjustments with some chiropractors utilizing other modalities such as acupuncture and/or interferential/faradic electro-therapy.
