Chiropractic is a health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and overall health of the individual.
It’s non-invasive drug free approach is to
remove nervous system interference by adjusting spinal segments and related structures.
If you are like the 80% of the population whom suffer from low back pain at some time, then the smart logical choice is to get chiropractic evaluation and treatment. Back pain can effect anyone at any time weather they are active or sedentary, but it’s more common to those over 25. Left untreated it can progress in severity and symptoms leading to a chronic condition and pre mature wearing to sensitive spinal structures (osteo-arthritis), thus reducing your overall health.
Many studies (Canada, New Zealand) have shown just how effective, safe, and cost efficient chiropractic care can be when compared to traditional medical treatment. If you have low back pain call me to discuss your condition or make an appointment so we can remove the cause.
Around 30% of my practice is seeing patients with neck pain and or headaches. This scenario arises from pain and tension in the muscles and other sensitive spinal joints, discs, and other related soft tissues. In the beginning it’s hardly noticed as you twist your whole body around to reverse the car. Over time these pain sensitive tissues become irritated and inflamed, range of movement decreases and headaches are the result. Tension headaches (cervicogenic) are the most common of all headaches.
Gentle chiropractic adjustments can and will restore motion to these involved spinal segments alleviating the tension, pain, stiffness, as normal function returns to the neck. I incorporate soft tissue techniques and other therapies to help reduce symptoms. If you have these issues call me now.
Shoulder pain can arise from two different areas. First between the shoulder blades (scapulae) which is probably a musculoskeletal issue or second the shoulder joint itself. This type is often miss-diagnosed as a rotor cuff tear (usually in 60+) with limited motion (frozen shoulder) can be very difficult to live with.
Proper diagnosis and treatment can restore normal function. Manual adjustments combined with physiotherapy, and exercises can often achieve these results fairly quickly.
