A Chiropractor is a primary healthcare professional trained to diagnose, treat, manage and prevent disorders of the musculoskeletal system (bones, joints and muscles), as well as the effects these disorders can have on the nervous system and general health. In Dubai, Chiropractic treatment is regulated by the Dubai Health Authority and Nightingale Health Services is a DHA approved center for Chiropractic treatment.
Chiropractic treatment mainly involves safe, specific spinal manipulation to free joints in the spine or other areas of the body that are not moving properly.
Apart from spinal manipulation, chiropractors may use a variety of techniques including ice, heat, ultrasound, tissue work/massage, taping and exercise, as well as advice about posture and lifestyle. Generally speaking if carried out by a qualified chiropractor, chiropractic treatment is pain free other than possible temporary discomfort if the area in question is in acute muscle spasm.
