Have you been involved in a car accident? Had a fall and hurt your neck? Played an intense game of rugby and tackled to the ground? Or even just bobbed your head to some really good rock music? Then you may have sustained a whiplash injury to your neck, so let’s find out a bit more about it and how your chiropractor can help you.
Despite it being such a common ailment, the cause of low back pain is often unclear, so let’s take a look at some of the causes, prevention and treatment of low back pain…
Does your jaw click while you eat, or lock unexpectedly? Do you experience headaches and difficulty speaking properly? There is a wide range of symptoms associated with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, but what causes this disorder and what can you do about it?
Does your child often complain about a pain in their heel? Is this pain particularly noticeable after high-impact sports like running, soccer or rugby? Then your child may be suffering from a condition called Sever’s Disease.
If your child has been complaining about neck ache or back pain this year, then their backpack might be to blame. However, this might have more to do with what (and how) your child is carrying than the backpack itself.
If your muscles are often stiff and sore, or you can pinpoint your pain to one or two spots on a muscle, then you may have myofascial trigger points. Better known as knots, these tight spots in your muscles are often sensitive to the touch and could be causing your pain and discomfort.
Tennis elbow, swimmer’s shoulder or even jumper’s knee is just as likely to occur while sitting at your desk, working in the garden or doing DIY work. Tendonitis is not experienced by only sportspeople.
Not all headaches are the same. In order to enable your chiropractor to treat your condition appropriately, it helps to know which type you suffer from.
