Sometimes even a small prang in the car can cause whiplash and the symptoms can be uncomfortable and difficult to live with. By identifying the joints and tissues that have been damaged, we can gently treat the problem area and get things moving again.
Slips and falls
Whether you stumble or go down with a thud, a fall can have a marked effect on your health and wellbeing. You may jump right back up to your feet and continue about your day, but if left untreated overtime the repercussions of a fall can have a serious impact on the healthy functioning of your body.
Too often after we’ve had a slip or a fall we jump up, brush ourselves off and try to forget about it. This is especially the case when we perceive the accident to have been minor. However, a fall can have a serious impact on your health and your spine.
Our highly experienced chiropractors will thoroughly assess the damage before carrying out gentle adjustments to the problem area. Chiropractic adjustments return the nervous system to normal function, which promotes the body’s ability to self heal and to protect itself from further injury. Chiropractic treatment for a slip or fall is not limited to the spine; we can also carry out manipulations on other affected areas to help get you back on your feet.
Chiropractic can play a key role in sports performance, injury prevention and recovery time. Whatever level you are performing at, and in whatever sport, our chiropractors can work with you to optimise your performance, reduce discomfort and prevent injury.
Spontaneous or non-traumatic injuries are often caused by a compromised nervous system. Misaligned or stiff joints in the spine can impair the nervous signals leaving the spine, reducing the ability of the muscles to protect and stabalise the joints from external force. Chiropractic adjustments change the function of the nervous system, reducing this inhibition and increasing strength, ultimately helping you to avoid injury, and reach your full potential.
Adjustments not only improve the function of the nervous system and muscles, they also increase your flexibility. So whether you want extra yards on your drive, extra zip in your serve, or a few seconds off your 10K time, chiropractic can play a key role in helping you achieve your goals.
Work related injuries
Work related injuries are very common. Across a number of industries, we regularly see people coming in with pain as a result of work. Whether it is an office worker sitting at a desk for 8 hours per day, or a builder who has strained himself or herself after repeated heavy lifting. We have seen it all, and we can help.
Using gentle adjustments and soft tissue therapies if needed, we can alleviate pressure on joints, reducing pain and increasing mobility. Once we have dealt with the immediate problem, we can then work with you to address the underlying cause. Whether that is addressing your work station and posture at a computer, or revising lifting techniques and advising on safer ways to go about your work, we can find and adapt the cause of the problem.
