What is Spinal Manipulation?

Spinal manipulation is hands on technique that provides a quick stretch to the joints of the spine that in turn causes a crack or pop sound.

The sound you hear is actually a release of nitrogen gas. It takes 20 minutes after a joint has been cracked for that gas to build up again before you can manipulate the joint again.

When a joint is manipulated and the gas is released little receptors in the joint and tendon are stimulated which in turn causes the muscles overlying that area to relax for approximately 15 minutes.

During this time we hope that the muscles go back to restful state. It’s kind of like restarting your computer when it is not working properly.

Contrary to popular belief no joints actually go out or need to put back into place or are out of align. These are all myths.

I cannot say enough about Paul, Lauren and the entire crew at Broadmead Orthopaedic Physio! I found Paul 20 years ago when I had unsuccessfully tried 4 other physiotherapists, and my GP recommended Paul. Paul had me fixed after 3 sessions, when all others failed! His knowledge of the entire human body system is utterly thorough! More recently, Lauren treated me for severe vertigo, fixed completely in one session ! They are the best of the best !read more

I was referred to Paul Macintyre by an awesome ER Dr who also saw Paul. That in itself was good enough. In fact she gave me one of his appointments because it was pretty difficult to get in.Paul's experience is validated by not only his thorough and accredited knowledge of athletic physiology, but by also carrying around a pretty beaten up one of his own. More validation.Expect a friendly (like walking into someone's living room kinda feel) atmosphere and also the satisfaction that you're working with the most up to date equipment.Nothing but great things to say about this physiotherapist.Office staff are pretty cool too. There. ????️‍♀️read more
