Staying active where possible, together with the help of Chiropractic treatment, may well be the best solution.
Chiropractors treat problems with your joints, bones and muscles, and the effects they have on your nervous system.
Working on the joints of your body, concentrating particularly on the spine, they use their hands to make gentle, specific adjustments (the Chiropractic word for manipulation) to improve the efficiency of your nervous system and release your body’s natural healing ability.
Chiropractic does not involve the use of any drugs or surgery.
Before coming to the Muswell Hill Chiropractic Clinic I was having problems with pain in my lower back. The pain was interfering with my daily life and even caused me to miss work. However, after my initial consultation and first treatment at the clinic I am now feeling confident that the treatment done here will soon have me back to my normal routine. N Y
Are you sitting comfortably?
Poor posture may lead to back pain. Your North London Chiropractor, at the Muswell Hill Chiropractic Clinic may advise you to make postural changes if you:
- spend hours sitting at a desk, computer or in front of the TV
- sleep in a bed that is too hard or too soft
- drive long distances in a car, van or lorry
- find yourself hunching your back and shoulders in stressful situations
Daily activities, such as bending, driving, lifting, twisting and repetitive movements may result in a ‘bad back’. This is why your Chiropractor will want to understand how you tackle these everyday movements. He will also ask about any major traumas to your back such as: car accidents, falls, sporting injuries and incidents of lifting heavy weights etc.
I have been dealing with issues with my lower back for the past four months. After my first few treatments, I already notice a significant improvement. I value the fact that the chiropractor goes into great detail when explaining both my diagnosis and how he will treat the problem. I find the chiropractor to be very knowledgeable and trust in his skills to help ease my back pain. I will definitely be coming back for further treatments. A H
Treating the cause, not the symptoms
Chiropractic, unlike painkilling drugs, treats the cause of pain, not just the pain itself.
At Muswell Hill Chiropractic Clinic we will carry out a full examination (including X-rays if necessary) and ask you questions about your pain, medical history and lifestyle, to try and discover the cause of your back pain and offer a diagnosis of your complaint.
Then your treatment will begin, often with gentle, specific adjustments done by hand, to free stiff joints and remove spinal nerve irritation. This effective drug-free treatment is generally painless.
Your Chiropractor may recommend ice or heat treatment and specific exercises.
How long will Chiropractic take to work?
The scientific evidence and guidelines for medical practitioners state that spinal manipulation can help back pain. The longer you have been in pain, the longer it may take to improve with treatment. Your Chiropractor will advise you of your likely recovery time, and how to minimize the chances of the problem happening again. Early treatment is important, but Chiropractors are also effective at treating long-standing or chronic pain.
Is Chiropractic treatment possible after surgery?
Not in the area of surgery. Your Chiropractor has the training and experience to treat each patient as an individual. You will receive appropriate treatment where possible for your specific condition, while areas not suitable for treatment will be carefully avoided. Many Chiropractors are able to offer post-surgical exercise, advice and rehabilitation.
