Chiropractors Treat

Chiropractors help treat some of the most common headaches, such as Cervicogenic Headaches and Migraine Prevention. Chiropractors provide manual treatment methods to help relieve tight neck muscles due to stress and tension in your neck, shoulders and back. Headaches resulting from trauma or imbalanced musculature are also known to respond well to chiropractic treatment.

Migraines are usually described as severe throbbing headaches at the front or side of the head. Some people experience additional symptoms such as:-

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Dislike of bright lights
  • Dislike of loud sound
  • Alterations in appetite
  • Alterations in mood and libido.

People usually start suffering from migraines in early adulthood with up to as many as one in five woman and one in fifteen men. A vascular link has been drawn due to the tendency of them to occur in association with menstruation, early pregnancy, menopause and use of the contraceptive pill.

The type of migraine can vary such as:-

  • Migraine with aura – people often experience some warning signs prior to these eg seeing flashing lights
  • Migraine without aura – there is no prior warning symptoms to these starting
  • Silent migraine (aka migraine aura without headache) – No headache is experienced however the migraine warning signs (aura) are.

Frequency of migraines vary from person to person, some experiencing them several times a week and others can go years between migraines.

Many people suffer from headaches, however some people suffer far more than they should and are unaware that chiropractic treatment could help, or prevent them.

Chiropractors provide manual treatment methods to help relieve tight neck muscles due to stress and tension in your neck, shoulders and back. Headaches resulting from trauma or imbalanced musculature are also known to respond well to headache treatment performed by a Chiropractor.

Whiplash associated disorders can occur from any sudden movement such as slips, falls and car accidents. Whiplash prevents the joints of the neck gliding smoothly as they should do with their self-lubricating joints and instead the joints are forced together damaging the surrounding area, which includes nerves, muscles, ligaments and discs.

Whiplash injuries can present a variety of symptoms including dizziness, light headedness, neck pain, headache, arm pain, fatigue and poor concentration.

Shoulder problems are one of the most common reasons people visit KH Chiropractic here in Aldgate, London. Treatment options for conditions such as frozen shoulder and rotator cuff injuries can be assessed at the clinic and appropriate treatment discussed.

First your chiropractor will take a thorough history and examination to understand the mechanism of your complaint, and to establish a diagnosis. Should your chiropractor feel the examination is not sufficient we may refer you for further imaging such as an x-ray ultrasound or MRI.

The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body, explaining why it is frequently injured and if often referred to as the most unstable joint. The top of the arm, which is ball shaped articulates with a small concave surface / socket. The joint isn’t very deep and therefore is mainly supported by muscles, ligaments and tendons. If an injury occurs at this joint it most commonly affects these supporting tissues which can lead to shoulder pain.

It is likely your chiropractor will also assess the neck to check the exact cause of the injury. Nerves, muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments can refer pain to distant areas, and for this reason it is important a full assessment is carried out to establish the cause.

Here are a list on some conditions we can help you with:-

  • Frozen Shoulder (adhesive capsulitis)
  • Impingement syndrome
  • Rotator cuff injury
  • SLAP tears (cartilage tear)
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Arthritis pain
  • Rehabilitation after fracture, surgery or dislocation

Frozen shoulder also known as Adhesive Capsulitis, is a condition which causes painful restricted shoulder movement. It is thought to affect:-

  • Women more than men
  • Patients over 40 years

Who display:-

  • Gradual onset shoulder pain
  • Usually one symptomatic shoulder at a time (rarely both)
  • Characterised by increasing pain and stiffness

This condition can usually be divided into 3 phases:-

  1. Painful phase – The patient usually experiences a background ache in the shoulder with movement. As time progresses they often start to note an increasing pain at rest and night. As the phase advances towards the adhesive phase, stiffness becomes a major complaint.
  2. Adhesive phase – usually starts several months into their complaint, with the pain becoming less severe. There is reduced pain at rest and at night, but discomfort and a more severe pain at the limits of movement. Shoulder movement becomes more restricted during this phase.
  3. Resolution phase – the pain is less evident and the dominant symptom is restricted shoulder movement. There is a slow and gradual improvement in range of motion with the onset and rate of recovery varying from patient to patient.

Frozen shoulder treatment can be useful to reduce symptoms. Chiropractors can help relieve symptoms via manual treatment such as soft tissue work, muscle release and mobilisation techniques. They can also provide you with some home exercises to help manage the condition. Generally frozen shoulder resolves naturally in 1.5 to 2 years however it has been known to last longer. Manual therapists such as chiropractors can provide frozen shoulder treatment to help manage the complaint, improving the comfort of the patient.

Top tips if you think you are suffering from frozen shoulder:-

  • Do the exercises prescribed by your chiropractor or healthcare professional
  • Keep the shoulder mobile (don’t limit the movement as this tends to tighten it further)
  • Maintain a good posture as this tends to keep your shoulder in a good position
  • Ice pack or heat packs can help reduce the discomfort (remember to wrap the ice or heat pack in a tea towel to prevent burning the skin and do not apply for longer than 10 minutes)

Extremity conditions refer to those joints not directly connected to the spine such as Ankles, Knees, hips, shoulders etc. Although chiropractors are commonly consulted regarding back and/or neck complaints they also frequently treat other joints of the body and joint pain.

Thank you so much fixing my back. I couldn’t recommend you more and appreciate your thorough and effective approach very much. It seems as if your expertise goes beyond classical chiropractic, which helps to remove the problem not only for the short term but also going forward.

I would highly recommend chiropractor Karen Habershon, I have had back issues for years and after seeing Karen, through a period of treatment, I feel so much better and more educated as to where and how to prevent the pain for recurring. She is attentive, friendly and highly professional and makes sure you are immediately comfortable in discussing your issues.
