Chiropractic care focuses on identifying and treating conditions of the musculoskeletal system. Although the primary focus is on the spine, chiropractors also treat a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. This is through gentle, specific manual adjustments chiropractors can restore motion to affected joints. Additionally, chiropractors also use soft tissue manipulation, heat/ice therapy and stretching/ strengthening exercises. Many patients experience great results with Chiropractic care for numerous conditions, Here are the top 5 most common conditions that are treated at our Chiropractic clinic in London
1. Neck Pain
Neck pain can have many causes. These include muscle and ligament strains or sprains, disc herniation and joint dysfunction. The first step Is to identify the root cause of pain through case history and physical exam. The chiropractor can begin treatment once they have formed a diagnosis. With advancements in technology i.e. iPhone, laptops, and so on, Chiropractors are seeing more and more neck pain symptoms, which is mainly due to poor posture.
2. Lower back pain
Chiropractors also see many patients with lower back pain. Usually sprain, strains, joint dysfunction and disc herniations are the most common causes. Focusing on ligaments, nerves, joints, and musculature in the lumbar region and pelvis can help specify the area of injury. Upon recognition of the root of the problem, the Chiropractor can employ an individualized treatment plan. This will assist the patient in a speedy recovery.
There are various causes of Headaches. The Chiropractor’s initial goal is to classify the type of headache. With this knowledge, the clinician can determine which muscles and joints to focus on. Many patients report nearly instant relief of headaches following a Chiropractic adjustment, particularly those experiencing “Tension Headaches”. Tightness in the neck muscles and joints can cause these tension headaches.
Sciatica refers to pain that radiates down one or both legs. This pain can travel to the thigh and even as far as the foot. As with any other complaint, identifying the true cause of the pain will be of the greatest benefit. Sciatica can have several causes such as muscular strain, lumbar disc herniation, and piriformis syndrome just to name a few.
5. Hip pain/ Sacro-iliac pain
The Sacro-iliac Joint is a joint in the pelvis where hip bone and sacrum join. This joint creates the foundation for most movements of the spine such as walking, bending, and lifting. The ligaments and muscles stabilise the joint. In cases of injury these tissues can become inflamed. This is due to the daily activation of these joints with normal routines. Once injured the tissues can become easily aggravated, prolonging recovery time. Chiropractic adjustments, muscle work, accompanied with strengthening/stretching exercises work wonders in this region.
