A common view of chiropractic treatment is that it can be used to treat pain without either medicine or surgery. While this is true in many cases, it should not be seen as a sign that chiropractic therapy is always entirely independent of other forms of treatment. When it is clear that there is a potentially serious problem with a patient, we would always refer you to a fellow medical professional who can provide the most suitable help.
The best way to illustrate this is with an example of a scenario which would see such a referral happen. We’d like to stress that such cases are rare, but with that in mind, let’s take a look at how we treat problems and pain associated with the lower back.
When a new patient comes to us we always begin with a complete and comprehensive diagnosis of the problem. This involves us carrying out an examination of the areas where pain is being experienced, as well as discussing activities, injuries and events which might have contributed to the problem. In most cases our chiropractic therapy can provide relief from the condition in a way that has long lasting effects. Should we identify symptoms that are usually associated with either a blood or bone infection, we will always advise you to seek the diagnosis of a medical professional who specialises in that field.
One of the greatest benefits of chiropractic treatment is that it offers relief from pain without relying on medication. While this is the preferable approach for many to take from a health perspective, there are instances where it can be unavoidable. Our chiropractic therapists will always use their skills to relieve you from pain while always placing your health and wellbeing at the forefront. If you are experiencing pain in any part of your body, don’t put up with it any longer; get in touch with our team and find out how we can provide sensitive, supportive and tailored treatments to relieve your discomfort.
People can be affected by neck pain for a number of reasons, whether it is poor posture, damage following a heavy impact, incorrect sleeping position, or repetitive movements. The problem can result in a drop in your quality of life, including pain and reduced range of motion.
Neck problems can be particularly troubling for people when it comes to driving. Being in charge of a vehicle requires full mobility of the neck so you can check mirrors, blind spots and the location of other road users. A diminished range of motion and pain can affect the ability of the driver, leading to increased hazards and safety concerns.
The issue may ease over time but if you don’t get the right treatment neck problems can become recurring. Chiropractic care can be used to tackle issues, helping to reduce pain, strengthen soft tissues and improving mobility. The gentle treatments they offer work well alongside the things you can do at home to improve your condition. Together they can provide fantastic results.
The great thing about seeing a chiropractor is that they can effectively diagnose the problem by doing a series of tests and asking you about your lifestyle. The information they gather is used to create the treatment plan, ensuring it is focused on helping to improve the condition. This allows the treatment to target the underlying problem rather than simply alleviating the symptoms the patient experiences.
