The chiropractors at our clinic in Perth, WA are university trained clinicians who treat and relieve spinal pain and associated conditions and manage and improve spinal health. Management by a chiropractor can assist with many other conditions as the spine plays an integral part in the functioning of the entire nervous system. Therefore, if your spine is strong and healthy, you will have more than just a back free from pain, but your overall sense of health and wellbeing can also be enhanced. As we say, healthy spine healthy body.
Our chiropractors help manage such conditions as:
- Sports injuries
- Lower, middle and upper back pain
- Migraines and tension headaches
- Hip, knee and shoulder injuries
What do our Chiropractors do?
Chiropractors gently adjust your spine to improve function and assist with proper postural alignment. Simple everyday tasks can significantly impact the spine’s normal function, which left alone can lead to more significant spinal conditions. Our chiropractors can gently realign and adjust your spine to help relieve pain and discomfort associated with poor posture and spinal function, and possibly averting further problems. Spinal dysfunction will also put pressure on the nervous system and associated spinal nerves which will impede the body’s normal function. Gentle correction of the spine, along with suggestions on how you can help maintain its correct function will help you towards better health.
Upper and Lower Back Pain
Our spine is made up of many different bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments that all work together to make the spine function correctly. Back pain is caused when one of the components that make up our spine is strained, tweaked or ruptured. Sometimes the simplest of movements can put stress on our back causing us pain. Our chiropractors can help treat and manage any lower or upper back pain to relieve any discomfort you may have. Treatment options from our Chiropractors include:
- Spinal adjustments
- Pelvic alignment techniques
- Ice/Cold therapy
- Dry needling
- Trigger point therapy
- Therapeutic Exercises:
– Stretching tight muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments
– Core stability exercises to improve bracing muscles
- Teaching and prescription of a home exercise program to assist in recovery and prevent re-occurrence
- Instruction in proper body mechanics during bending, lifting and carrying heavy objects
- Ergonomic adjustments in the workplace
Because our neck is so fragile and is supported by a narrow line of vertebrae, bones and muscles, damage can easily occur, causing us neck pain. Neck pain can be immediate or can gradually build up over time and may be constant or only triggered when in a certain position.
Neck injuries usually result from a motor vehicle, sports or work-related accidents and habits, where damage may occur to vertebrae, joints, nerves, discs, ligaments and muscles, leaving you in serious discomfort. Bad posture, slouching and awkward sleeping positions all tend to cause or worsen neck pain. It is important that you have your condition assessed if you are experiencing neck pain. Symptoms that last longer than three months become habitual and are much harder to treat. The earlier you seek treatment from a chiropractor the better the outcome.
By getting your neck pain assessed by a chiropractor, we can help determine the source of the pain and how it behaves, providing a treatment plan that will best work for you. At Langer Health, some treatment options that our neck pain specialists provide include:
- Spinal adjustment
- Soft tissue therapy
- Dry needling and more
