What is chiropractic for?

Goodbye, ailments.
Hello quality of life

Dr Steven J Crump established in Gibraltar in June 1999 after graduating from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic, Bournemouth and working in two busy practices near Newmarket that treats several high profile athletes including top name race jockeys.

 

He treats bio mechanical disorders which may reveal themselves as pain in the spine and other in joints of the body often giving rise to low back pain, neck pain, headaches and dizziness. Pain or sensation changes in the arms and legs usually have their origins of dysfunction in the spine, which causes irritation to the nervous system.

Testimonial

  • I have a lot of back problems, mainly due to sport injuries when younger and sitting for 10 hours a day in front of the computer.

    About 6 years ago, I suffered from a terrible back problem, where I was more or less paralysed in bed for 3 days I was unable to move, to eat, even to go to the bathroom. I was rescued by my cleaning lady, who found me in this state, and immediately called Steven. He came to my house, and within 10 minutes of gentle treatment, had me moving enough to go to the bathroom – what a relief! Within a week I was back to normal.

    Since then I have been seeing Steve regularly, and have seen a lot of improvement, and no repeat episodes.

    I strongly recommend that everyone gets checked up before they get into the state I was in

  • Here is a brief overview of my story.

    In December 2004 I was in a right state , I could not even sweep the floor for five minutes without having to sit down due to the resulting pain in my back, not to mention the effects of whiplash due to a previous traffic accident, I even had to QUIT my job of 6 years!

    I attended a Chiropractor in Spain for treatment for over a year which in the end I was “cured”.

    Unfortunately the Chiropractor moved to another location, which was impossible for me to attend, so I did not attend any more Chiropractic treatments for at least a year. At beginning of 2006 I decided I should go back to a Chiropractor due to the fact that my prior symptoms of back pain were returning not to mention a noticeable stiffness in my walking.
    I walked in to Dr.Crump’s clinic and within the hour he could tell me exactly what my problems were.

    I have not looked back since!

    A friendly and professional environment.

    DON’T DELAY BE RID OF YOUR SUBLUXATIONS TODAY!

  • My name is Krisha, I’m 26 years old, and have been a patient for the last 10 years.

    When I was nine I got knocked down by a car, I suffered a cracked pelvis from the accident. I used to get trapped nerves on the left hand side of my hip (the side from which I was hit). Dr. Crump was able to help put my hips back. I no longer suffer discomfort; I can continue my active lifestyle.

    More recently I have an extremely noisy Jaw. I’m conscious of how loud it is whilst eating! Tension builds up and funny facial expressions are all I can do to release the pressure.

    I felt sure that Dr. Crump can help solve the problem. I feel an improvement there with every visit.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there scientific proof that chiropractic works?

Yes, particularly for low back pain. The Clinical Standards Advisory Group recommended in 19941 that there should be earlier access to the manipulative therapies and a redistribution of resources within the NHS to make this happen. In September 1996 the Royal College of General Practitioners issued guidelines for GPs which recommend manipulative treatment within the first six weeks for patients with low back pain. They also state that the risks of manipulation are very low in skilled hands.

Is there anything wrong with me ‘cracking’ my neck or back myself?

Yes. You cannot properly control a manipulation to yourself and your relief may only be temporary. You are more likely to be ‘cracking’ the wrong joint, since movement in the affected one will be restricted. Consult your chiropractor!

Why should I return if I’m feeling fine?

Your chiropractor has treated you, so allowing your body to heal, but if you have to continue the lifestyle which caused the original condition, your chiropractor may recommend regular check-ups or treatment.

Is chiropractic treatment safe? Even if I’ve already had surgery?

Chiropractic is remarkably safe when treatment is carried out by a properly qualified practitioner. Your chiropractor is trained to recognise conditions which require referral elsewhere, and can treat you even after surgery.

How are chiropractors trained and qualified?

It takes at least four years of full-time study to become a chiropractor at the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic (AECC) which offers a course leading to an MSc degree, or the University of Clamorgan, which offers a BSc (Hons) degree. The University of Surrey runs a two-year MSc course. The courses are followed by a postgraduate year spent on the British Chiropractic Associations’s Vocational Training Scheme (VTS), which students spend in a chiropractic clinic with the support of a qualified Trainer. Upon successful completion of the VTS the student is awarded the Diploma in Chiropractic (DC). Only chiropractors trained at an accredited college can become members of the British Chiropractic Association (BCA), the largest association for the profession in the UK, established since 1925, and now representing over 800 UK chiropractors.

What is the difference between chiropractic and osteopathy?

There are differences in technique and approach, as well as some similarities. The important factor is that the practitioner is well-qualified. Both professions now have statutory regulation.

Should I bring my family for chiropractic checks?

Yes. The strength of chiropractic is that it can help prevent discomfort, pain and even disease, and is suitable for everyone. It is entirely appropriate to visit a chiropractor even if you have no pain, as restrictions in movement can often be detected before symptoms appear, just as regular visits to the dentist can help to prevent toothache.

Are all patients adjusted in the same way?

No. Your treatment programme will be tailored to your specific needs.

Will the treatment hurt?

Manipulation, when carried out correctly by a qualified practitioner, is not painful. If you have acute muscle spasm, when even the lightest touch hurts, there may be some discomfort. Sometimes, if you have had the problem for some time, you may feel sore whilst your body starts to adjust. You chiropractor will tell you if this is likely to happen.

Have I got a ‘trapped nerve’ or a ‘slipped disc’?

These are common, general terms used to describe a multitude of conditions. Your chiropractor will make more specific diagnosis and explain your condition to you.

What is the popping noise of the adjustment?

When the two surfaces of a joint are moved apart rapidly, as happens in a chiropractic adjustment, there is a change of pressure within the joint space. This may sometimes cause a buggle of gas to ‘pop’ – but this sound is not significant, and does not hurt.

How often do I need to come for treatment?

An average course of treatment may entail five or six visits over two or three weeks, but evey case is assessed individually, and it is important to keep your appointments, and make regular visits. Discuss this with your chiropractor, who will explain your treatment programme to you.

How long will it take to get better

Your recovery is depentent on many factors – the problem, the lenght of time you have had it and your own commitment to any rehabilitative excersises and maintenance visits which your doctor may recommend.

Can I get treatment on the NHS

Some GPs are able to purchase chiropractic treatment for their patients on the NHS. Many health insurance companies will now pay for chiropractic treatment

Will my doctor approve?

Increasingly, GPs are recognising chiropractic as an effective compementary treatment, particularly for back pain. You do not need a GP’s referral to visit a chiropractor.

How long does a treatment take?

The first consultation takes, on average, about half an hour, and a treatment session about 15 minutes.
