As well as chiropractic treatment I often use a technique know as Neuromuscular Reeducationsm which can dramatically speed up the healing process. Please see below for more details on this or again just enquire directly today.

A little about Chiropractic Treatment…

Chiropractic is gentle, natural and drug free primary healthcare profession focussed on health and wellbeing. It involves the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the spine, nerves, joints and muscles.

Your nervous system has a map of your body - It uses this map to check how you are, and predict what your body needs or what you want to do. If the map gets distorted, symptoms can be produced - either from the nervous system itself or from altered control of your body's systems or movements. Chiropractic tries to restore the map and keep it clear by stimulating nervous responses from whatever areas we manipulate, and we judge the effectiveness by seeing how well you move and how well you feel afterwards.

Chiropractic care can help with:

• Back pain
• Neck pain
• Shoulder and arm pain
• Hip, leg and sciatic pain
• Cervicogenic headaches
• Other joint pain

Neuromuscular Reeducationsm

Neuromuscular Reeducationsm is a hands-on technique developed in the USA which yields phenomenal results unmatched by other soft-tissue techniques.

Every muscle in the body is surrounded by a smooth sheath of connective tissue called fascia. When an area is injured, whether it’s muscle, connective tissue, fascia, tendon or indeed a combination of these elements, the body handles the inflammatory response by laying down fibrous scar tissue.

Scar tissue is less elastic, second grade and poorly vascularised in comparison to healthy tissue. Adhesions occur wherever damage and inflammation have occurred and they limit both strength and range of motion.

NMR works to break down the adhesions in a controlled way, allowing the body to replace the scar tissue with healthy muscle and connective tissues. Once the adhesions have been freed up, we then go on to the "re-education" part, which involves simple rehabilitation exercises to help you return to your full strength.
