Meet our new chiropractor Oliver Jones

We’re thrilled to welcome our new chiropractor Oliver Jones to the Nightingale team. Oliver joins us from the UK, where he worked in several large clinics in the north of England, including York Chiropractic Clinic and Sheffield’s Parkview Therapy. He gained his Master of Chiropractic degree from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth and is a Member of the General Chiropractic Council and British Chiropractors Association.

Oliver is a keen athlete who understands how expert chiropractic care can boost performance and reduce the risk of sports injuries. We asked Oliver to give us the lowdown on what a chiropractor does and how the treatment can help:

What is a chiropractor?

A chiropractor is a primary healthcare professional trained to diagnose, treat, manage and prevent disorders of the musculoskeletal system (bones, joints and muscles). They also deal with the effects of these disorders on the nervous system and general health. Approximately 1.71 billion people suffer from musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions, according to the World Health Organisation, with lower back pain the most prevalent.

What conditions does a chiropractor treat?

Chiropractors are best known for treating acute or chronic lower back, mid-back, and neck pain; most people looking for relief from these conditions choose chiropractic treatment. In addition, patients also consult chiropractors for pain relief from other related conditions, such as pain in the arms and legs and headaches.

The focus is on achieving proper alignment of the body’s musculoskeletal structure, particularly the spine, to enable the body to heal itself without surgery or medication. It can be used in conjunction with conventional medical treatment.

What does chiropractic treatment involve?

Chiropractic treatment mainly involves safe, often gentle, specific spinal manipulation and adjustments to free joints in the spine or other areas of the body that are not moving properly. Apart from manipulation, chiropractors may use a variety of techniques, including ice, heat, ultrasound, exercise, and acupuncture, as well as providing advice about posture and lifestyle.

Book a chiropractic appointment at our health hub in the Gold & Diamond Park, where we also provide physiotherapy services depending on your needs.
