Chiropractors diagnose and treat problems affecting the bones, joints and muscles. Nova chiropractor has an outstanding record of treating cases of lower and upper back pain, neck pain, sciatica, trapped nerves (pinched nerves), injuries from sport, slipped disk, repetitive strain and other musculoskeletal issues. As part of the treatment, our chiropractor may use Western Acupuncture (Dry Needling) to speed up the healing process.
What is a typical chiropractic treatment?
Typical chiropractic treatment involves the gentle and skilful manipulation of the spine, neck and joints into their natural place, thereby allowing the joints to move properly and release pressure on any nerves that may have become affected. This practice is known as ‘adjustment’ and patients often refer to chiropractic ‘cracking’, as there may be a characteristic sound when spine or joints are manipulated.
The chiropractor will use controlled force, leverage, direction, amplitude, and velocity directed at specific joints.
Most often he or she will make these adjustments to the spine, but they may adjust other joints too, such as the ankle, knee, wrist, elbow, or shoulder in order to restore structural alignment or to improve joint function.
When being treated for a complaint such as back or neck pain, you will most likely receive a series of adjustments, separated by a few days, to incrementally reduce the irritation and improve normal function. This might continue for a few weeks, usually diminishing in frequency.

I have suffered with back problems for years and used to go to an Osteopath in Hitchin until there was no improvement with my back. I was always sceptical about going to a chiropractor would it make the problem worse? Would it actually work? So I looked around on Google and saw Anna at Nova clinic, I was nervous upon meeting her and explained all my situations and how my back has arthritis and lots of disc problems, she listened to me and understood everything. Anna made me feel comfortable and relaxed she spoke about all the methods she was using and how they would work. Being completely honest with me of course this won't be a overnight thing but gradual thing. Learning to not rely on my crutches and to have confidence in my self. I am so grateful I found Anna. Nova clinic is a wonderful friendly environment.

"I came in yesterday in pain and having to take pigeon steps to move around. My back was causing me pain all the time and has done for the last 10 days. After a very uncomfortable afternoon and evening following the appointment, I managed to get a good night’s sleep and have woken up this morning almost pain free and with almost normal freedom of movement. I am truly astounded by the results and cannot thank you enough. Thank you!"
