Chiropractic is a primary healthcare profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and management of conditions that are due to mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system. This means that we treat problems involving muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and nerves. In addition to chiropractic techniques, Stephen uses a variety of treatments including massage, medical acupuncture (dry needling) and rehabilitative exercises, to get patients out of pain and back to normal activities.
Around one third of the UK population will have low back pain every year. The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines recommend that chiropractic care is used as a first line treatment of chronic low back pain. We are experts in diagnosing and treating the causes of low back pain.
Your head weighs about the same as a bowling ball, so the neck is under a lot of strain trying to support it. It is therefore no surprise that stress on the muscles, joints and nerves can give you pain. We can relieve this using a combination of hands on treatment and postural exercises.
The most common cause of sciatica is a bulging disc. This will generally result in pain, or pins and needles in the buttock and leg. Chiropractic care and postural exercise can help relieve these symptoms.
The shoulder is a very mobile area and the muscles, tendons and joints have a heavy workload. As a result, shoulder tension and pain is very common. Chiropractic treatment can help relieve these symptoms.
Arthritis, or joint wear and tear, is very common and often results in pain. Whilst we cannot turn back the clock, joint function can be improved and levels of pain can be considerably reduced.
Tendons connect muscles to bones and are under a lot of tension. Tendonitis occurs when a tendon becomes irritated and inflamed. We can get to the root cause of the problem and aid a swift recovery and help prevent future reoccurrence.
Chiropractic treatment is effective at treating both migraines and headaches which result from tension in the neck, or other root causes.
We can help with general aches and pain, including joint problems, muscle spasms and cramp; shoulder complaints including rotator cuff injuries, and other soft tissue disorders of the shoulder; ankle sprains and plantar fasciitis; elbow pain and tennis elbow. Stephen is also the official chiropractor to the Swindon Robbins speedway team.
