Chiropractors are primary contact practitioners. This means that people can directly access their services. The following is a comprehensive list of the symptoms and conditions that present to the Ashford Back & Wellness Centre. We do not actively treat all of these conditions. However, our Ashford Chiropractor is well placed to manage them. The management could be in any of the following forms: diagnosis, advice, treatment (see list below), monitoring of progress or timely and appropriate medical referral.

In 2010, the UK evidence report by Professor Gert Bronfort on the 'Effectiveness of Manual Therapies' was published. It concluded that spinal manipulation/mobilisation is effective in adults for acute, subacute, and chronic low back pain; for migraine prevention and cervicogenic headache, and a number of upper and lower extremity joint conditions. Thoracic spinal manipulation/mobilisation is effective for acute/subacute neck pain, and, when combined with exercise, cervical spinal/manipulation is effective for chronic neck pain.
Common health conditions we see people with at the Ashford Back & Wellness Centre include the following:
• Low Back Pain
• Neck Pain
• Migraine Prevention & Headaches
