Chiropractic is a health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal manipulation or adjustment.
At Optimus our emphasis is on an accurate diagnosis, identifying the cause, good quality treatment and excellent preventative care. We specialise in managing Headaches, neck pain and shoulder pain, Arm pain and leg pain, Mid back and Low back pain and all forms of sports injuries.
Your experience begins with a detailed consultation consisting of a case history and postural, orthopedic and neurological examination. The key here is firstly to identify the structures that have been damaged and secondly to look for the reasons why.
Sometimes the onset is easy to identify such as a car accident/ trauma, but in most cases we see repetitive stresses such as sitting at your computer/laptop or driving gradually weakens the spine/skeleton until your body says 'no more' and gives you pain.
At Optimus chiropractic treatment consists of a variety of joint stretches, tractions and muscle release techniques which are designed to stimulate your body into healing the damaged area. Alongside the treatment we analyse lifestyle, making corrections to your behaviour to reduce further stress on the damaged area. Exercise and core strength is another key feature of your recovery.
Chiropractic treatment is safe and beneficial for men women and children of all ages and our techniques vary from extremely gentle to more vigorous depending on size, shape, gender and age.
We treat patients from far and wide in and around Bristol, Bradley stoke, Filton and South Gloucestershire. We also have strong links with businesses in Aztec west.
