Chiropractic Visit at Muswell Hill Chiropractic ClinicHere are 10 things you may not know about Chiropractic:

  1. Chiropractic is a primary health care profession.
  2. It is the third largest healthcare profession in the Western World after medicine and dentistry.
  3. There are about 10,000,000 chiropractic visits to British Chiropractic Association (BCA) members every year.
  4. Chiropractors are governed by statute. Because of this chiropractors have to keep up to date and a patient can be assured that they get the best treatment for their problem.
  5. Chiropractors treat problems with joints, muscles and nerves. All the joints of the body but mainly concentrating on the spine.
  6. Chiropractors use gentle but specific manipulation which often chiropractors refer to as adjustments to improve the function of joints.
  7. Apart from manipulation, chiropractors may use a variety of techniques including ice, heat, ultrasound, exercise and dry needling as well as advice about posture and lifestyle.
  8. Chiropractic is suitable for many people. A chiropractor looks at the person as an individual and will tailor a package of care for them.
  9. Chiropractors do not use drugs or surgery.
  10. Chiropractic is backed up by positive evidence, for 15 conditions people generally see a chiropractor for and is even recommended in The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (Nice) guidelines for back pain of greater than 6weeks, but less than 1 year duration.

Chiropractic is a natural, gentle, drug-free healing art that recognises the body’s self-healing abilities.  If you are in pain and suffering right now and are looking for a way to feel better again and be your very best then we are here to help you.

Lounging in the sun can result in more than sunburn – avoid back pain this summer with advice from a North London Chiropractor

avoid back pain advice north london chiropractorWith the heatwave continuing in Britain, more and more of us are taking to lounging in the sun. However, this can result in more than sunburn if we don’t take care.

With recent consumer research* finding that 44% of the UK population are suffering back and neck pain, it may be surprising for some that lying down or sitting can trigger symptoms of back pain.

Lying or sitting in one position for an extended period of time can have a negative impact on our posture, often leading to poor posture. As an experienced chiropractor in North London, I know that poor posture can often be a contributory factor to back and neck pain.

Here are some simple tips to avoid back and neck pain while still enjoying the beautiful sunshine and all its benefits:

  • Make sure you move around and change your sitting or lying position at least every 20 – 30 minutes. You want to have a good stretch and shake out all the tension in your muscles.
  • Don’t lie on your stomach with your back and neck in an arched position. This can especially be a problem if you are reading a book on a lounger. Try putting the book on the floor so you can look at it over the edge of the lounger. Or even better listen to an audio book.
  • Make sure to warm up and stretch before taking part in any outdoor games. While they can be lots of fun, they can often result in injury if you’re not prepared.
  • Keep hydrated – drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration.
  • Incorporate the Straighten Up UK programme into your daily routine to improve and maintain a good posture.

You can watch the Straighten Up UK video here – it’s only 3 minutes long.

We hope you enjoy the sunshine and keep your back safe this summer.

Postural changes could be the answer to your back pain. A North London Chiropractor shares this info

Last Updated on Wednesday, 12 June 2013 11:55 Written by Dylan Paydar Friday, 21 June 2013 11:32

North London Chiropractor improves poor postureAt some point most people will suffer back pain and its impact on their lives can be considerable,  from sleeping to sitting and even picking up their children.

One of the major causes of back pain in the UK is poor posture. Our lifestyles often contribute to developing poor posture and back pain.
If you find that you are:

  • spending hours a day at a desk or at your computer
  • slouched in front of the TV for several hours
  • sleeping in a bed that is too hard or soft
  • hunching your back and shoulders

your posture is probably suffering and so is your back.

To effectively treat back pain you have to find its cause which a chiropractor is ideally placed to do. An experienced chiropractor will want to understand your daily activities to be able to give you advice and the best treatment for your condition.  Your chiropractor may advise you to make postural changes to help improve your posture.

The BCA (British Chiropractic Association) has devised a 3 minute programme called Straighten Up UK to help improve muscle tone, strengthen your spine and improve your posture.

The programme is designed to counteract the sedentary things we do in our everyday lives and is suitable from the very young to the very old.

It is designed to be simple, easy and quick to do every day – just like brushing our teeth.

Watch the video for the 3 minute Straighten Up UK programme. Before starting on the programme ask your chiropractor, GP or health professional about the suitability of these exercises for your specific needs.
