We treat a wide range of problems here at Emersons Green Chiropractic Clinic, and see a range of patients from old age pensioners to athletes with sports injuries
Here are a few of the common ailments we see on a daily basis, which can be treated with chiropractic.
Knee and Hip Pain
Knee and hip pain can severely limit your lifestyle making it difficult to stand and walk, thus affecting everyday activities such as walking around at work, shopping, household chores and exercise. If left untreated it can eventually lead to problems in other areas of the body including lower back pain. These joints are quite complex and pain may be caused by several different factors.
Mechanical neck pain is a very common symptom of our increasingly sedentary and desk-based lives. It can have several components including but not limited to the joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and intervertebral discs. Posture, work-life, stress and trauma (whiplash and associated disorders, for example) can all contribute to symptoms in the neck.
Low back pain
Low back pain is the most common presenting complaint we see here at Emersons Green Chiropractic Clinic. During your first appointment we will perform a detailed physical examination including reflexes, muscle strength, range of motion, sensation, functional muscle & orthopaedic tests to help formulate an accurate diagnosis as there are multiple anatomical structures that can cause your back pain.
Headaches are complex and can have many causes. They can be classified as Tension Headache, Cervicogenic Headache (literally ‘headache with origin from the neck’) and Migraine Headache as well as others. Headaches are never ‘normal’ but are rarely sinister. Much research has been undertaken to attempt to explain the many causative factors and presentations of headaches.
The shoulder is a very mobile joint with a high level of internal co-ordination. If some of those internal components change or become dysfunctional, pain and decreased movement can occur.
