The constant aches and pains afflicting our bodies don't necessarily have to be part of our lives. Many of us often pay little to no attention to what our body is trying to tell us when the discomfort strikes. Instead, we either ignore the problem as best as we can or opt to take painkillers in order to continue with our many daily commitments, if at all possible.
After a while of self medicating with painkillers, it has been found that the effects of the medication are greatly diminished and sensitivity to pain becomes worse. For this reason, chiropractic care may be the ideal, non invasive alternative to effectively treat these common ailments.
Over the years, chiropractic care has evolved, become more understood and widespread. This has made it more accessible as an ideal way of managing various types of musculoskeletal problems. Treatments are tailored to the patient's needs, and may include spinal manipulation, exercises, and muscle relaxation or stimulation among others.
At inc-Health before deciding on a treatment course, we perform a personalised and detailed study of the person's pain related history and other health issues. Gathering all this information and physically examining patients allows us to make a well informed decision in determining the possible causes for aches. In some cases, we might have to refer patients to a non NHS clinic to obtain MRIs, X-Rays, or CT scans to further aid us in determining the root of the problem.
Most of the time, headaches and migraines tend to be caused by bad posture, maintaining a sitting position for long periods of time, or past injuries which were not treated successfully. There are many types of headaches and an experienced chiropractor will be able to help you find out which you most commonly suffer from and help you prevent them.
This type of care is a safe option for pregnant women, children and the elderly when performed by a trained professional. We are a chiropractic and rehabilitation centre associated with the British Chiropractic Association, the General Chiropractic Council, and the College of Chiropractors. All our staff are trained professionals, so you can rest easy knowing you are receiving treatment from reliable experts.
