Atlas do not offer chiropractic treatment at the moment as our chiropractor has moved away so we will be offering a suitable alternative.
Chiropractic treatment involves manipulation of spinal segments in order to realign any misaligned joints. The theory is that misaligned joints can restrict movement and create changes to the physiology of the body resulting in health issues.
Atlas Pain Relief Centre offer an alternative to Tamworth chiropractic treatment and Chiropractic treatments in Tamworth as we can provide manipulations of the spine and assessments of postural alignment with appropriate corrections as needed. We provide more time and consideration to soft tissues than you would likely receive at a Tamworth Chiropractor visit because our treatment times are 60 minutes and 30 minutes compared to less time allocated at a standard chiropractic appointment.
When comparing prices consideration should be given to how long you actually spend being treated and how many times you are asked to go back. Just because the initial treatment cost is cheaper it can cost you more if you have to visit more times and get less time during your visit.
If we are talking about your spine or pelvis being out of alignment then a correction can be achieved in one visit and should not need regular visits to realign.
We feel this is not necessary as regular manipulation leads to stretched ligaments and more chance of things moving out of alignment. Once you correct it, it is done unless there is an underlying maintaining factor!
Xrays for diagnosing back pain is not recommended as it is radiation and harmful with little benefits. If you suspect a cancer or a fracture then maybe but an MRI is far better as it shows soft tissues as well as bone. As most back pain is caused by soft tissue issues then an X-ray has little benefit because it will not show soft tissue.
Prepaying for many treatments upfront is a mistake, anyone asking for large payments upfront is in our opinion behaving in an unprofessional manner. They may try and tempt you with discounts for paying for more than 10 sessions in advance but this should be avoided. Most of our customers at Atlas are pain free in less than 6 visits if they are acute and we would never ask for large payments upfront.
Osteopaths are as skilled as chiropractors at spinal manipulation, in fact the first chiropractor was a student of the osteopath Andrew Taylor Still who was the founder of osteopathy.
At Atlas we offer Tamworth osteopaths as an alternative to the treatment from Tamworth Chiropractors and provide soft tissue work, massage and electrotherapy as well as manipulation of spinal joints and pelvic realignment.
