This has become one of the most common reasons for people to take time off work. Research has shown that most of us will experience back pain and its complications in our lives. For some of us this will go on to become a chronic debilitating condition.
Chiropractic has been shown to be effective for low back pain in a number of clinical trials over the years and is now included in the NICE guidelines for your GP to follow when recommending care options to you.
It is very common for adults to experience neck and shoulder pain at some point in their life. Neck pain and its related problems can become incapacitating for sufferers.
Injury and postural problems are the most common causes of neck pain. Other causes include trauma, stress, and falling asleep in an awkward position.
Chiropractic care has been shown to be extremely effective in treating neck pain. Treatment is tailored to the individual and always includes exercises and advice on ergonomics because our priority is getting you out of pain and keeping you out of pain.
Chiropractic has been shown to be a very effective treatment for a number of different types of headache. Many headaches originate from the structures of the neck, which are referred to as cervicogenic headaches.
With the correct treatment, chiropractic care reduces the frequency and intensity of headaches. Chiropractors have to undergo 5 years full time training to doctorate level. Therefore you can be reassured that our chiropractors are equipped with the examination skills to diagnose your complaint effectively and identify if your headaches is suitable for chiropractic care. If complaints like headaches are not found to be appropriate for chiropractic care patients are referred to the correct specialist.
Shoulder problems can be very challenging and for good reason. Just when progress is made the patient, through no fault of their own, does something to set themselves back. This is because we are constantly using our shoulders.
Ligaments, tendons and muscles within the shoulder all work together to create the movement and strength required for proper function, making diagnosis of the troubled area more difficult. The good news is that we have seen thousands of patients with shoulder pain and over time most have responded positively.
Pins and needles in the hands or feet is not uncommon and there are many causes. The cause is usually a trapped nerve in the spine causing referred symptoms like pins and needles in the hands or feet. While the condition often comes and goes, for some it can be persistent accompanied by other symptoms such as back pain, neck pain, headaches, dizziness and loss of balance.
This can be very worrying for anyone experiencing this problem and diagnosis can be difficult with the patient hearing differing answers from different practitioners. But one thing that is certain is something is causing the symptoms and that cause needs to be found.
Sports injuries are frustrating because they can stop you from doing the things you really enjoy. People feel that they lose that competitive edge through no fault of their own. We have had a number of patients tell us how their golf handicap has improved since being under chiropractic care.
The most frustrating thing about sports injuries is that they often re-occur. This is usually due to the fact that the cause of the problem has not been found and corrected.
Arthritis is a common condition that causes pain of the joints and bones. The main symptoms of arthritis include pain, stiffness, restricted movements of the joints.
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. The most frequently affected joints are in the hands, spine, knees, and hips.
We are dedicated to helping you achieve the best results possible. We commonly see patients with:
Whether it is a posture problem, scoliosis, back pain, sciatica, neck pain, whiplash, hip pain, heel pain, groin pain, in fact pretty much any ache or pain and regardless of whether you have had it for ten days or ten years, the answer always lies in finding the reason why it is there in the first place.
