Many top sports teams and top athletes now use Chiropractic as part of their medical care.
"Being a professional athlete means that I have to push my body to the limit every training session. Invariably, this means I get a lot of wear and tear, particularly on my back.
From my experience, slight problems in my back can manifest itself as problems in other places in the body. The team at ISIS looked after me for many years, and their expert treatment enabled me to compete at the highest level, and to the best of my ability. I would fully recommend their treatment."
Craig Pickering (100 m European Junior (Under 20s) Champion, 2005. Fastes 100m, 10.16 personal best 2007.)

To identify what is causing your injuries and holding you back from reaching your potential.
At the initial consultation at the clinic, the chiropractor takes a full medical history, investigates lifestyle, posture etc., carries out a thorough examination and takes x-rays when necessary. Once the diagnosis is made, a treatment plan is prepared.
Chiropractic treatment include specific manipulation and adjustment techniques to affect the nervous system, free stiff joints and remove spinal irritation.
We also use modalities such as Low Level Laser Therapy, Ultrasound and Interferential treatment.
Treatment is generally painless, although some short-term discomfort may be felt around the injured area.
Once the pain settles, patients are encouraged to follow a programme of rehabilitation exercises to help strengthen the injured area, improve flexibility and prevent recurrence of the problem.
Chiropractic treatment aims to restore normal function to your joints and muscles as well as your nervous system, which may increase control, co-ordination and muscle strength.
Chiropractic is a course of treatment. The number of treatments required will depend on the nature of the condition and how long it has been present.
