We aim to help our patients and get the residents of Grantham out of pain and living life to their full potential. We do this by providing the best treatment for them. We know that there is not a one size fits all approach for our patients and we also know that in order for people to get better and stay better education is essential.
There are different services people need and different stages throughout their journey to more fulfilling life of less pain. That is why we provide a range of services to suit that journey not only with our tailored approach to care through the Chiropractic treatment but supporting this with massage services, educational workshops/classes and rehabilitation classes.
Chiropractic Is a healthcare profession that specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the muscles, joints, bones and nerves of the body (the musculoskeletal system). Although Chiropractors are best known for treating back and neck pain they also trained to treat a wide array of other musculoskeletal problems such as painful shoulders, hips, knees, elbows and even headaches that are arising from the neck.
Chiropractic is a healthcare profession and not a specific treatment. Chiropractors are best known for manipulation but that is not all they do and not something they do on everybody. Chiropractors use many different techniques and approaches to treat their patients. These include manipulation, mobilisation, soft tissue/muscle techniques, western medical acupuncture, exercise prescriptions, psychosocial interventions. All this treatment is provided alongside advice, information, and education.
In the UK Chiropractic is a registered profession and only those that have completed an accredited University degree can register as a Chiropractor.
Muscular aches and pains are frustrating. Tension into the muscles can be a major contributing factor to pain. That is where massage comes in. Massage can help with a wide range of issues. It can relax you, increase blood flow, aid in recovery. It is a great compliment to the Chiropractic care helping you achieve your goals.
One of the most frustrating things about back pain is the fact it keeps coming back. It Is, more often than not, recurring. Once the hard work of getting you out of pain is done it is important to look at some of the factors that will stop it coming back again. That is where rehabilitation comes in. We will formulate a personalised plan to build the capacity of your body and build its resilience so that you are able to cope with the demands of everyday life without it causing pain.
Better Back Courses
One of the most underutilised things when it comes to treating pain is knowledge. Gaining an understanding of why we feel pain from a neuroscience point of view has been shown by itself to decrease pain even without treatment. Having this knowledge in addition to treatment has been shown to improve outcomes. Alongside Mybetterback.co.uk which is an educational website hold classroom based courses. We also hold workshops on different aspects of lifestyle factors that can help to alleviate pain such as anti-inflammatory foods/diets, stress management, better quality sleep.
