What is Chiropratic?

Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders, with an emphasis on treatment through manual adjustment and/or manipulation of the spine. Manipulation is very successful in the treatment of nerve irritation from pressure on nerves, especially spinal nerves, and joint inflammation.

Chiropractors also treat soft tissue sport injuries (tennis elbow, rotator cuff tendonitis, joint sprains, muscle strains etc.) with other treatment methods, such as: cross friction, dry needling, heat and ice and fascial tissue release.

In many cases, such as lower back pain, chiropractic care may be the primary method of treatment. When other medical conditions exist, chiropractic care may complement or support other medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition.

Most chiropractors seek to reduce pain and improve the functionality of patients as well as to educate them on how they can account for their own health via exercise, ergonomics and other therapies to treat many conditions including back pain.

About Dr Nick Royce:

Dr Nick Royce has successfully grown his three practices over the past 10 years. This is owed to his enthusiastic and dedicated attention given to all of his patients. After completing his research on shoulder injuries in provincial athletes, Nick developed a strong interest in sports injuries and extremities over and above treating all spinal conditions.

He was one of the first Chiropractors in the country to establish a working relationship with a corporate, in South African Breweries, and has since set up a number of practices within other corporates. From his passion for sport and people, Nick has created a welcoming practice environment that strives to help patients with pain relief, healthy living and achieving their full sporting potential.

When Dr Nick is not in his practice he can be found spending time with his wife and two children (to whom he is devoted) or travelling to some beautiful far off place in the bushveld.
