Neck pain

Neck pain comes from tension in your neck and upper back. Neck pain has become common because of long hours spent at desks or using cell phones. You may experience neck pain as:

Stiffness that limits your range of movement,

Sharp pain on movement,

Intermittent headaches, or

Pain or tingling extending into your shoulders and down your arms.

Lower back pain

Lower back pain is most commonly caused by mechanical stress to the soft tissues and joints of your lower back. Stress to your lower back can be caused by lifting heavy objects while flexing and twisting your spine, by overextending or overexerting yourself while playing sport, or by having a poor posture. This stress can result in muscle or ligament strains or sprains, damage to your intervertebral discs, compression of nerve roots or improper movement of your spinal joints. Lower back pain can be sudden or chronic in nature, and it can be constant or intermittent. Common lower back pain symptoms are:

Dull aching pain in the lower back which may be associated with muscle spasms and limited movement.

Pain, numbness, tingling in your buttock, legs and feet

Pain that becomes worse after sitting for prolonged periods of time.

Chiropractic is an effective way of managing and treating back pain.

Headaches

Headaches are most commonly caused by tension in your upper back, shoulders and neck muscles. Headaches can be debilitating and can last between a few hours to several days and be intermittent for weeks. Headache symptoms you may feel are:

Deep pressure at the back of your head.

Pain behind your eye or on your temples.

Pain that becomes worse after sitting for prolonged periods of time.

Vice like pressure around your head.

Throbbing pain at the top of your head.

Your headaches may also be associated with nausea and vomiting. Chiropractic treatment helps relieve headaches by finding the cause of the headache and treating it through specific chiropractic manipulations and soft tissue therapies.

Pregnancy pain

In the early stages of your pregnancy your body will be in the process of preparing to carry a baby. In later months it will undergo physical and hormonal changes to grow and nurture your baby. Hormones released during pregnancy allow the bones in your pelvis to move enough to accommodate your growing baby. As your baby grows so will your belly, causing you to arch your lower back more to compensate for the forward shift in weight. This puts strain on your joints and surrounding soft tissues. Chiropractic treatment can benefit you by:

Maintaining correct spinal and pelvic alignment, providing optimal space for your baby.

Help you achieve a healthier more comfortable pregnancy.

Relieve pain in your neck, hips, and back.

Provide drug-free alternative for pain treatment.

Your headaches may also be associated with nausea and vomiting.

Baby conditions

Chiropractic treatment for babies differs greatly to that of adults. Babies endure a significant amount of stress through the birthing process. The stress from both caesarean and natural births can result in spinal misalignments. Births with abnormal uterus positioning or a traumatic birth makes this even more likely. Misalignments can lead to:

Colic

Reflux

Difficulty latching

Irritability

Sleeping difficulty

Asymmetrical crawling or rolling

Chiropractic treatment for your baby starts with an extensive history taking in order to establish the causes your baby’s discomfort. Each area of discomfort for your baby is treated differently and with gentle and specific soft tissue manipulations. During the treatment session you will be talked through activities you can do at home to have a happier, healthier baby.

Whiplash

Whiplash occurs during a traumatic event where your neck or lower back is forced to move quickly forwards and backwards. This affects your cervical or lumbar spine, causing damage to the joints in your spine and the surrounding tissue. Whiplash results in stiffness, decreased range of motion and muscular pain. Interestingly, it’s possible to feel the symptoms of whiplash several years after the event. Your whiplash can be treated by soft tissue management and chiropractic manipulation.
