What is chiropractic treatment?

Chiropractors are concerned with the framework of bones and muscles that support the body (the ‘musculoskeletal system’). 

Problems with the bones and muscles in the body can be caused by accidents, lack of exercise, poor posture, illness and everyday wear and tear. This causes pressure on the nerves in the body. 

Chiropractic treatment involves the chiropractor manipulating parts of your spine or joints to remedy these problems. Manipulation involves the precise handling or movement of joints or parts of the spine, sometimes further than they normally move. 

A chiropractor may also give you advice on exercise, self-help, diet and lifestyle, and some may also offer rehabilitation programmes."

About the Chiropractic Clinic

We think you’ll love our state-of-the-art facilities dedicated to giving you effective and caring treatment within a professional and educational setting.

We offer 32 comfortable treatment rooms, fully-equipped Exercise and Sports Performance Centres, a large digital X-Ray suite, and one of the UK’s few open upright MRI scanners..

 

You’ll be in safe hands with our academic staff chiropractors, associate chiropractors, and senior chiropractic interns. Our interns are student healthcare professionals in their final stages of training at the AECC University College. They work under the close supervision of qualified chiropractic tutors, who will discuss and review all aspects of your diagnosis and management of your condition.

When we first meet you we’ll go through your medical history, perform a physical examination, general medical check, and thoroughly assess your problem areas. This first appointment takes up to two hours as we want to fully understand you and your problems. To get a clear picture of what to expect take a look at our first visit guide.

The Clinic and the community

AFC Bournemouth

We  have been involved with AFC Bournemouth for many years and remain their Official Performance and Rehabilitation Partner. We are able to offer four sought after places at the club - two with the first team, one with the development squad and another in the academy. These interns assist the team’s medical staff with  performance assessments, strength testing, and identifying potential issues that could affect players’ performance as well as treatment. Up the Cherries!

Friends of the Clinic

We have an active patient group who promote the clinic within the community and act as liaison between the patients and the clinicians.  We would love you to join us please email cliniccomments@aecc.ac.uk for further information.

Chiropractic & You

Here at AECC University College, we continually look for ways to improve, which is where our Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) network comes in. It works by you telling us what you liked or more importantly, what we could have done better, and we use your feedback to educate, evolve and correct.

We’d love to know your thoughts so please get in touch and have your say

Our last Patient Satisfaction survey was taken in 2015, and we were blown away by the results. A couple of highlights include:

  • 98% would 'definitely recommend' us to their friends and family.
  • 99% of patients who wanted to see their intern on a specific day got an appointment on that day or sooner.
  • 96% said their intern was very good at treating them with care and concern.
  • The top three reasons for choosing us were: quality of care (46%), affordability (41%) and recommendation (39%).

What’s more, we listened to the negative feedback you shared and because of it we now have an automatic entrance door, better parking, and much improved gowns.

We love getting it right, so if you’re delighted about something, or concerned about anything, we want you to tell us so we keep on improving.
