Headaches

Hello I often get headaches and I noticed that my neck hurts a lot every time when i get headaches is a chiropractic treatment help with my headaches? Thanks


Hi,

Chiropractic does often help with headaches if they are due to muscle or joint problems.

We’d assess you first to determine if you are suitable for treatment or whether you need to be referred on to your GP for further tests.

Lower/mid back pain

Hello, I’m a 32 year old female and have never suffered from back pain before until about 3 weeks ago. It’s a constant dull ache rather than a shooting pain. It’s the bottom of my back and also the middle, not always at the same time. I have been driving up and down from Manchester to London in the last year most weekends and am wondering if that has finally taken its toll. I’m also quite worried it could be something worse as I’ve never experienced a bad back before. Do you help diagnose or treat a dull ache? If so I’d like an appointment as I’m getting pretty desperate now. Thank you, Rachael

Sciatica

Hiya. Since the age of 15 I’ve suffered with a trapped nerve/sciatica. Im now nearly 29 and its becoming bad again. Would seeing someone help this? A massage? I’ve been using a tennis ball as this was recommended but just wondered if you could help. Thankyou


Hello,

This is the kind of thing that we do treat. We’d need to take a case history and examine you before starting treatment as there are many causes of sciatic type pain and we need to ascertain which one yours is due to.

Dowager’s Neck Hump

Hi I think I have a Dowager’s neck hump and was wondering whether this is something that you could treat? It seems to have formed over the last year or so from poor posture / working from home. Thank you!


Hi,

We can usually help with the symptoms you can get with a Dowagers Hump but can’t always get rid of the ‘hump’ as that depends on how bad it is and how long you’ve had it.

Back shoulder blade pain

I have recently since Sunday been suffering from back right shoulder blade pain and sometimes a dull pain/ache in my right arm. Would chiroptacty solve this do you think ? Thanks in advance – Mike


It really depends what the cause of the pain is.

We’d need to examine you to try to determine that before we could give you a definitive answer.

Y-strap

Hey, so I was watching this famous chiropractor on YouTube and it made me want to get an adjustment. It’s my first time and somebody I know recommended you to me. I was just wondering what techniques you use and if the y-strap was one of them.


Hi,

We mainly use Diversified, Drop and Activator here.

We don’t use a Y-Strap. Sorry!

Kris
