Yes, there are, but few. Chirapratory is an emerging medical field on morning Nigeria..
Many people with body pains especially from the spine have been messaging me to find out if there is any hope of finding a chiropractor in Nigeria….
I found a chiropractor in Lagos, his name is Dr. Onuoha Okeigwe(Search his name on Facebook to reach him and on Youtube). He even has a chiropractic Lagos.
Location: Hope Chiropractic Health Clinic Lekki Phase 1, Lagos.
I think his fees are affordable and dependent on the part of your body. I know a the cost of having a session with a chiropractor is about #15,000 – #20,000 naira. In some centres in Lagos and Abuja, the price of chiropractic therapy for back ache and neck pains can be as high as #50,000 naira.
There are other physiotherapy chiropractic centres in Lagos , Abuja, Port Harcourt, Kano and Benin… Chiropractic centres or clinics are becoming popular in Nigeria… Physiotherapists can also be chiropractors
Are you having body aches and you want some adjustments, try chiropractors…
Who is a chiropractor?
A chiropractor is a health care professional focused on the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders, with an emphasis on treatment through manual adjustment and/or manipulation of the spine.
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 back pain.
Chiropractic is generally categorized as alternative medicine or complementary medicine.
While primarily focusing on treating neuromusculoskeletal disorders, chiropractors are not exclusively limited to problems with the nervous system and musculoskeletal system.
When appropriate, chiropractors refer patients to medical doctors or other health practitioners for treatment of lower back pain. Many chiropractors have a local referral network or work together with other spine specialists in a multi-disciplinary or multi-specialty spine clinic.
