back pain

Chi­ro­prac­tic treat­ment is proven to be effec­tive in the treat­ment of Back Pain and Sci­at­ica. Stud­ies com­mis­sioned into the effec­tive­ness of Manip­u­la­tion (of the type per­formed by Chi­ro­prac­tors) in com­bi­na­tion with exer­cise in the treat­ment of back pain have been found to be a highly effec­tive method of treatment.

So much so, the Chi­ro­prac­tic pro­fes­sion is increas­ingly becom­ing com­mis­sioned to deliver care to Back Pain patients via the NHS. Dynamic Chi­ro­prac­tic is cur­rently in con­sul­ta­tion with three com­mis­sion­ing groups in prepa­ra­tion for pro­vid­ing an NHS ser­vice in Man­ches­ter, Cheshire and the sur­round­ing area.

foot

Chi­ro­prac­tic treat­ment is effec­tive in the treat­ment of joint pain includ­ing foot and ankle com­plaints. Assess­ment of your gait (walk­ing pat­tern) will form a rou­tine part of your Chiropractor’s assess­ment. Included in that assess­ment, your Chi­ro­prac­tor will look for signs of fallen arches (hyper prona­tion) and other bio mechan­i­cal prob­lems that might be affect­ing other parts of your body, E.g. Back pain.

Where indi­cated foot and ankle com­plaints can be treated by your Chi­ro­prac­tor or a refer­ral to our Chi­ropodist & Podi­a­trist may be indi­cated. Some­times pre­scrip­tion insoles (orthotics) are required to assist in the man­age­ment of foot and ankle com­plaints and the effects this may have on other parts of the body. In other cases localised mus­cle and joint pain in the foot and ankle can be effec­tively treated with manip­u­la­tion or appro­pri­ate soft tis­sue treatments.

Dynamic Chiropractic’s work with ath­letes often requires a multi-​disciplinary approach to foot and ankle and lower limb aches and pains. So a refer­ral to an expe­ri­enced Phys­io­ther­a­pist, Podi­a­trist or Sports Physi­cian may be nec­es­sary to work in con­junc­tion with your Chi­ro­prac­tic treatment.

hip knee

Hip and Knee pain can be symp­toms of low back and pelvic dys­func­tion, Osteoarthri­tis, direct trauma or sec­ondary to foot and ankle com­plaints by way of mechan­i­cal compensation.

Your Chi­ro­prac­tor is trained to diag­nose the cause of your Hip or Knee pain and then select the most appro­pri­ate form of treat­ment to improve your range of motion, reduce pain and allow you to return to activ­i­ties. Stud­ies into the effec­tive­ness of Chi­ro­prac­tic treat­ment for patients with hip or knee osteoarthri­tis have found sig­nif­i­cant ben­e­fits can be achieved.

joint pain

Chi­ro­prac­tors are experts in the assess­ment, diag­no­sis and treat­ment of joint pain. It is a com­mon mis­con­cep­tion that Chi­ro­prac­tors just treat backs.

Chi­ro­prac­tic treat­ment is appro­pri­ate for a wide range of aches and pains includ­ing joint pain any­where in the body.

neck pain

Neck pain has a num­ber of ori­gins. For exam­ple: motor vehi­cle col­li­sions involv­ing whiplash injuries, pos­tural and ergonomic strain/​sprains from com­puter and desk based work, pro­longed dri­ving, sport­ing injuries and phys­i­cal and emo­tional stress.

Some­times inflam­ma­tion and mus­cle ten­sion in the neck can trig­ger headaches (known as cer­vico­genic headaches). Chi­ro­prac­tors are highly trained in the exam­i­na­tion and diag­no­sis of neck pain and related headaches.

migraine

Research into Chi­ro­prac­tic treat­ment have con­cluded that Chi­ro­prac­tic is effec­tive in the pre­ven­tion of some forms of Migraine. Your Chi­ro­prac­tor will con­duct a detailed orthopaedic and neu­ro­log­i­cal exam­i­na­tion in order to assess the cause of your Migraines. Some Migraines are caused by nerve inter­fer­ence usu­ally occur­ring at the top of the neck.

Some­times a patient’s med­ical his­tory will include a neck trauma event (e.g. in motor vehi­cle col­li­sions), although chronic pos­tural strain, (e.g. in patients who work at a com­puter or are required to engage in pro­longed dri­ving), may be fac­tors involved in Migraine cau­sa­tion. Many fac­tors will be con­sid­ered includ­ing your past med­ical his­tory, med­ica­tion, pos­tural and ergonomic influ­ences and any his­tory of injury.

Your Chi­ro­prac­tor is trained to diag­nose the cause of your Migraines and will select the most appro­pri­ate treat­ment for you.

shoulder

Your Chi­ro­prac­tor at Dynamic Chi­ro­prac­tic will use a num­ber of recog­nised orthopaedic and neu­ro­log­i­cal tests to diag­nose the cause of your shoul­der or elbow problem.

Your Chi­ro­prac­tor will then make use of a num­ber of dif­fer­ent treat­ment tech­niques to reduce your shoul­der or elbow pain and improve func­tion as quickly as possible.

tension muscle

Your Chi­ro­prac­tor may use a num­ber of tech­niques to treat your aches and pains includ­ing Ten­sion, Mus­cle Spasms and Cramp. Some­times the mus­cle spasms asso­ci­ated with, for exam­ple, back and neck pain require spinal manip­u­la­tion, deep tis­sue mas­sage or trig­ger point ther­apy to help reduce the lim­ited mobil­ity you may be experiencing.

On other occa­sions the ten­sion asso­ci­ated with phys­i­cal or emo­tional stress may have an influ­ence on your con­di­tion. Your Chi­ro­prac­tor will advise you on ways to reduce your mus­cle ten­sion by way of improv­ing your pos­ture, ergonom­ics and exer­cise rou­tine. Where appro­pri­ate and with your per­mis­sion, your Chi­ro­prac­tor will liaise with other health pro­fes­sion­als in the man­age­ment of more gen­er­alised emo­tional tension.

More directly Chi­ro­prac­tic spinal manip­u­la­tion has been shown to be effec­tive in reduc­ing some forms of mus­cle spasm, ten­sion or cramp.
