If you have experienced chronic headaches or migraines, you don’t need convincing that they’re one of the most painful, debilitating conditions you could possibly suffer.
Migraine symptoms often include sensitivity to light and sound, visual symptoms and even nausea.
The most common areas people experience headaches are behind the eyes, the top of the neck, under the skull, through the sinuses, between the temples and at the top of the head. The way chiropractic helps is th
Key in dealing with headache sufferer are:
• Correcting the underlying biomechanics and function of the neck
• Restoring flexibility
• Correcting posture
Today’s modern living often entails hours of driving and hunching over workstations, which can play havoc with our necks.
So it is no surprising that neck pain is the second most common condition that chiropractors treat.
With effective chiropractic care, correct flexibility can be restored and with regular maintenance, and home exercises, you can ensure it stays that way!
Symptoms of neck pain may include:
• Persistent neck stiffness
• Pinching or pulling in the upper back
• Pain in the shoulders and ribs
This is where the chiropractors at My Chiro on Preston see some of their greatest results and truly excel and can often achieve immediate relief!
If you suffer with upper, middle or low back pain or stiffness, we can help.
In the upper and/or mid back, we are almost always addressing mechanics of the spine related to poor posture or old injuries. Pain in the shoulder blade is also very common and most easily corrected by addressing the dysfunctional movement of the underlying ribs.
Therapy almost always includes:
• Correcting the underlying joint dysfunction
• Addressing hypertonic muscles with soft tissue release techniques
Scoliosis is a progressive, lateral curvature of the spine. When viewed from the side, the spine should have curves. But when viewed from the front, the spine should be straight.
The effects of scoliosis include: poor posture, shoulder humping, muscle weakness, and pain.
In rare cases scoliosis can lead to heart and lung problems. If scoliosis is detected and treated early, patients can avoid these symptoms in many cases. If left untreated, scoliosis can sometimes require surgery.
Treatment of Scoliosis
• Specific Chiropractic Adjustments, to reduce the torsion in the spinal cord
• Use of foot Orthotics and Heel Lifts to level the pelvis
• Exercises specifically designed to address balance, co-ordination and proprioceptive problem
Stress is damaging to your body!
Physical stress is the main focus for most Chiropractors. The structure of your spine allows it to cope with daily movements, pressure and tension.
When the correct biomechanics of the vertebra are compromised due to injury, repetitive movements and or sustained poor posture, the mechanoreceptors in the joints fail to fire correctly.
All stresses can be divided in to 3 different types
• Physical stress, things such as trauma or accidents, prolonged incorrect daily posture
• Chemical stress, toxins we are exposed to like, preservatives in food, cigarette smoke, medication etc.
• Emotional stress, this is due to work pressure and deadlines, arguments with partners or family, life or career changes, relationship or family stress, etc.
Sciatica describes back-related leg pain, caused by irritation to the sciatic nerve, or the nerve braches that form the sciatic nerve.
Branches of the lower lumbar and upper sacral spinal nerves exit the spine and form the sciatic nerve.
As the sciatic nerve also gives motor supply to many leg muscles, then muscle weakness may also be a seen with sciatica.
Causes of sciatica
• Disc bulge/prolapse
• Injury to facet joints
• Piriformis Syndrome
