Patients present with any number of ailments; but by far the most common symptoms we treat are problems associated with lower back pain, neck pain, tension and back ache. Tension and neck pain can often be associated with headaches and migraines. Chiropractic treatment can be extremely effective in helping sufferers of headaches and migraines in terms of relieving symptoms.

So how does a chiropractor help and what do they do?

A chiropractor uses hands-on manipulation to make adjustments to the musculoskeletal structure to enable the body to heal itself. Walkley Chiropractic group uses evidence-based practices to help relieve pain and discomfort with the long-term goal of adjusting the patient’s alignment in order to heal and prevent recurring symptoms

What to expect when you visit a Walkley Chiropractic Clinic

On your first appointment, your chiropractor will take a detailed medical history, as well as performing a physical examination. In addition, we would review any referral notes if necessary. We would develop a treatment plan which would include manual adjustments and manipulation. We will also devise an exercise or rehabilitation plan as part of the treatment process. Our goal is to restore function, prevent further injury and to offer relief from the pain you are suffering.

Treating back pain at Walkley Chiropractic Clinic

Spinal manipulation through chiropractic adjustment is delivered through a specific force applied in a precise direction to restore normal movement and ease the restricted area. The purpose of the treatment is to restore movement and ease pain. Chiropractors make the adjustment using their hands or specially designed instruments.

Treating neck pain with Chiropractic care

Neck pain is one of the most common complaints we treat at Walkley Chiropractic Clinic. Neck problems can be a major cause of headaches. Chiropractic treatment through a combination of varied therapeutic techniques and changes to posture and daily habits can result in great success at treating neck pain.

Treating headaches with Chiropractic care

Headaches are also a very common ailment we treat at Walkley Chiropractic Clinic. Many headaches are caused by dysfunction in the neck. These are called cervicogenic headaches. Our Chiropractors would use gentle manipulation techniques to restore normal movement. This eases the strain on the muscles, ligaments, discs and joints and increases mobility. In turn, this calms the tension which is causing the headache pain. As part of a treatment plan, we will also provide advice about improved posture, relaxation techniques, and exercises to improve alignment, as well as suggesting a review of workplace environments to help relieve the recurring joint irritation and tension in the muscles across the shoulders and up into the neck.

Chiropractic care to treat Migraines

Migraine sufferers know only too well how debilitating a migraine can be. The cause of migraines is not completely understood, migraines are aggravated because the intense pain triggers prolonged muscular contractions which in turn increases the tension in the neck. Often, migraine pain is a combination of migraine symptoms and a muscular tension headache. Studies have shown that migraine sufferers can experience significant relief from Chiropractic care.
