Chiropractic care aims to help those in pain

2018-03-01 06:00

BACK and neck pain are two of the most common complaints seen in physical medicine.

However, we are just as likely to suffer from pain in other joints and muscles.

Frozen shoulder, ankle sprains, hip bursitis, arthritis in the knees, and sports injuries are also some of the conditions seen in practice.

Chiropractic care aims to alleviate the pain, discomfort and limitation of movement associated with these conditions. When visiting a chiropractor, a detailed medical history is taken which is followed by a physical examination which includes a neurological and orthopaedic examination.

Blood tests or x-rays may be requested if required. Treatment is holistic, conservative and aimed at relieving the pain and improving function.

It’s best to get your aches and pain seen to as soon as possible as they could become chronic and lead to degenerative changes.

Sometimes they could also indicate a serious underlying disorder which requires urgent attention. Chiropractors work closely with medical doctors, specialists, orthotists, biokineticists and other health-care professionals.

Chiropractic care is now available in Verulam and surrounding areas. For more information or to make a consultation, please contact Dr Shaik at 032 541 6028.
