Chiro means ‘Hands’ and practor means ‘practice’ in Greek/Latin. Traditionally Chiropractors have been trained to treat every patient ‘by hand’ sensitivity even when blindfolded and with no visual or verbal communication as the treatment is traditionally a 100% ‘by hand’ treatment. The use of technology/machines/gadgets is purely a modern addition to a Chiropractors diagnostic and healing toolkit but a good Chiropractor will never actually need to rely on a machine or technology to be a skilled and effective practitioner. Emma Roberts has been referring patients for self-pay MRI scans to diagnose the causes of pain for over 15years and liases closely with radiographers and medical consultants to analyse reports and find a suitable bespoke treatment plan but does not own or directly operate this equipment herself.
