X-ray Machine

In some cases, Chiropractors may need to use X-rays to identify misalignments, subluxations and other abnormalities in the skeletal structure. Most clinics will have at least one on the premises for diagnostic purposes. On site X-rays and their results are often invaluable in diagnoses that you can discuss with your Chiropractor.

Instant digital X-rays

The latest digital X-ray machine is now available at our Haverhill Clinic.  The machine uses digital sensors instead of traditional photographic film therby offering instant results for high speed diagnoses. High quality x-ray images are are able to be examined and any issues identified promptly to find any underlying causes of pain or discomfort.

DEXA Bone Density Scanner

A pDEXA Bone Density Scan provides a written measurement of bone density mass. A two minute test detects the first signs of bone weakness and monitors Osteoporosis. Your results are seen on a screen, printed and discussed with you at the time. The test is non-intrusive (no need to undress) and X-ray exposure is very, very small. Regular sessions in Essex and Suffolk and other locations for groups on request.

Power Assisted Micro Manipulation (PAMM) - Available at Haverhill

PAMM is a treatment consisting of a 'bionic' handset powered by compressed air which rapidly massages the joints of the spine by repetitively and effortlessly moving up and down the spine to release the individual joints and restore mobility, promoting a feeling of wellbeing and sometimes the sensation of feeling taller! This treatment assists restoration of movement to 'fixed' vertebrae thus relieving pain. Sensitive areas or painful conditions such as Osteoporosis or Osteoarthritis can benefit from this treatment.

Roller Massage Couch - Available at Colchester

The roller table consist of two sets of soft rubber wheels which move gently up and down the spine whilst the patient relaxes. This is a gentle form of traction to which subtle vibration can be introduced at a controlled level. This helps to restore movement and release tension from the spine using passive traction - so relaxing that the patient often falls asleep!  

IQ Impulse Adjusting Instrument

Chiropractic adjustments with the Impulse iQ Adjusting Instrument® feels like a light tapping sensation on the area that is being treated. It is quicker than other adjusting instruments and 100% faster than manual chiropractic adjustments. The gentle thrust pre-empts the body’s tendency to tighten up or resist the adjustment. The treatment is painless and after the adjustment many patients feel relief of pain and improved mobility.

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound waves stimulate tissue repair, relieve muscle spasm, reduce inflammation and free up calcified or 'stiff' joints. Joint sprains associated with sports injuries can be treated along with shoulder and knee joints which respond particularly well to ultrasound therapy delaying the need for surgical intervention. Ultrasound is used to increase connective tissue elasticity and improves range of motion. Improved circulation stimulates the replacement of oxygen and nutrients to damaged tissues, helping healing and regeneration.
