Chiropractic History, Treatment & Care

The Chiropractic profession is over 120 years old and the third largest health profession in the world. Which bases its self uniquely by offering a natural, hands on, proactive, forward thinking health approach that changes the paradigm away from medical sick care to Chiropractic Health Care refocusing on preventative patient Wellness care.

Primarily we do this by analysing the health and function of spine, with regards to the tension, position, movement of the the 24 spinal bones (vertebrae) and pelvis. When these stop working as well as mechanically designed due to trauma, repetitive strain, posture, pregnancy, sport injury, stress or simply modern lifestyle, this negative change can then have consequences on surrounding muscles (spasm/weakness), joints, ligaments, discs & nerves leading to symptoms of pain, aches, stiffness and reduced mobility. This is why you if you have a spine then you will need Chiropractic care.

Lots of people have underlying spinal problems that may go unnoticed for years or stem back to a previous initial injury years before, which may have not been produced symptoms for a long time. Eventually though due to the underlying dysfunction with the back, symptoms reappear.

That’s why its important not only to focus on the subjective pain and ache but really understand the reasons behind it and correcting it, so not only you feel good but stay feeling good. Below are some problems successfully treated with Chiropractic treatment and care.

Dr Gemma Bailey

(Bsc (Hons) Chiro)

From as early as I can remember I have had a keen interest in health care and I hoped that one day I would have a career where I could help people improve the quality of their lives. During my teenage years I developed psoriasis and unfortunately found that western medicine was of little help. It was at this time that I started to look into complementary medicines and came across Chiropractic. It amazed me that by using completely natural methods Chiropractors could achieve great results especially with musculoskeletal complaints so I decided to pursue a career in Chiropractic.In 1999 I attended the Welsh Institute of Chiropractors at the University of Glamorgan in Wales. I graduated in 2003 with an honours degree in Chiropractic. On graduation I worked in the UK for three years – during this time I was lucky enough to gain experience working alongside GP’s in a busy city centre surgery. In 2006 I moved to Ireland and worked at the Fitzwilliam Health Clinic since it opened in March 2007.Over the past 7 years I have attended seminars throughout Europe and have gained additional experience in several techniques that help me treat a wide variety of conditions and patients from children to the elderly. I have also gained a keen interest in nutrition, spinal rehabilitation and foot mechanics. This enables me to achieve my treatment goals with patients, which is to find the cause of their problems, resolve the causes in order to prevent relapses in the future.In 2003 I was given the opportunity to pass on some of my experience to students at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in Dublin. This went well and I now enjoy lecturing for the college, teaching students anatomy, physiology and pathology.
