How can we help

Pain albeit chronic or acute can diminish your quality of life and often becomes quite debilitating. Musculoskeletal injury, digestive irregularities or nerve pain are a few of the many causes of pain that we come across at the clinic.

Acute pain is usually the result of injury.  Whether it be the sporting field, the garden or running to catch that train. None of us are immune from injury.  Tennis elbow, ankle strain and lower back pain are all examples of acute pain. But remember there are other types as well.  The sudden onset of digestive, period or nerve pain can also be very debilitating.  It’s important to recognise when you are in pain, otherwise the risk of turning into a chronic problem increases.

Chronic pain on the other hand, can present in many different areas and with varying intensity. It is common for chronic pain to be the result a specific injury. Such as a lower back disc traumaor arthritis, causing debilitating back and sciatic pain.

The computer has a lot to blame for chronic pain developing in the neck and shoulders. This often promotes headaches and migraines. This type of postural pain can be both sharp or dull and severely impact our productivity and life quality

We can provide advice to your regular activity accordingly to allow the healing mechanisms in your body to kick in, whilst assisting in managing your pain.
