Conditions we treat
Low back pain
Around one third of the UK population will have low back pain every year. The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines recommend that chiropractic care is used as a first line treatment of chronic low back pain. We are experts in diagnosing and treating the causes of low back pain.
Neck pain and whiplash
Your head weighs about the same as a bowling ball, so the neck is under a lot of strain trying to support it. It is therefore no surprise that stress on the muscles, joints and nerves can give you pain. We can relieve this using a combination of hands on treatment and postural exercises.
Disc injuries and sciatica
The most common cause of sciatica is a bulging disc. This will generally result in pain, or pins and needles in the buttock and leg. Chiropractic care and postural exercise can help relieve these symptoms.
Shoulder and arm pain
The shoulder is a very mobile area and the muscles, tendons and joints have a heavy workload. As a result, shoulder tension and pain is very common. Chiropractic treatment can help relieve these symptoms.
Arthritis, or joint wear and tear, is very common and often results in pain. Whilst we cannot turn back the clock, joint function can be improved and levels of pain can be considerably reduced.
Muscle pain and tendonitis
Tendons connect muscles to bones and are under a lot of tension. Tendonitis occurs when a tendon becomes irritated and inflamed. We can get to the root cause of the problem and aid a swift recovery and help prevent future reoccurrence.
Migraine and headaches
Chiropractic treatment is effective at treating both migraines and headaches which result from tension in the neck, or other root causes.
We can help both in the initial stages of a sports injury, but more importantly we can help prevent injury reoccurrence.
