Conditions Treated with Chiropractic Care

Disc injuries

Disc injuries, also commonly called “disc bulges”, “slipped discs” or “disc herniations” involve damage of the outer fibrous portion of the disc located between the vertebrae. This allows the inner gel portion of the disc to push through and irritate surrounding structures. Disc injuries often result in spinal pain and stiffness and in some cases pain into the shoulders and arms, buttocks and legs. Chiropractic care will potentially involve x-rays as well as referral for MRI in severe cases.

Joint pain

Joint pain, including that as a result of inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis can be eased through chiropractic care. In such cases, gentle adjustments or mobilisations are combined with soft tissue therapy, exercise and diet management.

Chiropractors are able to effectively manage muscle and ligament strains through a variety of techniques, such as massage, pressure point therapy, dry needling and stretching therapy. Overall biomechanics and muscle imbalances will also be considered and rehabilitation exercises often implemented.

headache treatment - Dr Simon Workman - Chiropractor

Headaches

Headaches, along with back pain, are one of the most commonly treated conditions by chiropractors. It is estimated that 50% of the population will at some stage experience headaches over the course of a year. The health of the neck is closely related to headaches. Your chiropractor will assess the joints, muscles and nerves of the neck, while also looking to positively influence a patient’s posture, ergonomics and other aspects of lifestyle such as diet, which could be involved in the generation of headaches.

whiplash treatments by Dr Simon Workman - Chiropractor

Whiplash

Whiplash is generally caused by a traumatic event, causing the neck to whip backwards and forwards or from side to side. Also called cervical sprain/strain, whiplash involves the spraining of joints and ligaments and straining of the surrounding muscles. X-rays will be considered by your chiropractor in the event of whiplash, as in any instance of trauma, before careful treatment is administered.
