Sports Chiropractor Northmead
A Sports Chiropractor is well trained to deal with every type of sports injury and at Knox Chiropractic we see many sportsman and sportswomen. While most people know Chiropractors deal with ‘back aches’ few know that we treat many and varied sporting injuries.
Some common injuries
- shoulder pain – rotator cuff injuries
- elbow pain – tennis elbow and golfers elbow
- wrist pain
- rib pain
- back and rib pain when breathing
- low back pain
- recurrent groin sprain/strain
- chronic calf or glut tightness
- shin splints
- knee pain
- heel pain
These are often signs that something is not right. Chiropractors can help you be your best. These problems can really limit the things you want to do.
If you are coming back from an injury that required surgery you should have a thorough Chiropractic examination. This will allow any underlying cause to be detected and rectified prior to recommencing training.
Commonly we see shoulder injuries from overwork/repetitive strains (tendinitis) in combination with a dysfunction of scapular rhythm. If this is overlooked and you return to training it puts you at risk of future re-injury.
So if you want to use an approach that is less invasive than drugs and surgery why not give us a call.
Pediatric Chiropractor Northmead
While many people may think children are just ‘small adults’. A Chiropractor educated in pediatric care is capable of delivering gentle chiropractic care to a child. In pediatric care the chiropractor understands the difference in development for a child than to an adult. This changes the care required. At Knox Chiropractic we regularly see babies and children. They present with a wide variety of issues from birth trauma to the regular growing up accidents and falls.
Young children seem to respond relatively quickly compared to older adults which is expected. Some parents simply want to have their child’s spine assessed by a professional. This will ensure the best possible development will be achieved. We also assess postural issues as children progress into the formative years and address any bad habits before they set in. Our advice for the school/study years will help parents monitor their child’s development and be proactive in the best care for their child.
Pregnancy Chiropractor Northmead
Pregnancy causes significant strain on a woman’s body. Add to this the additional weight of a growing baby and it is understandable that many expectant mothers suffer a level of discomfort during their pregnancy.
Studies show that more than half of soon-to-be mothers suffer from lower back pain, as well as irritation of the sciatic nerve. There are many ways to reduce this discomfort. Pregnancy chiropractic care can be utilized to help make this process more bearable. A body will be prepared for delivery with regular care. This will reduce or prevent many of the pains and aches commonly associated with maternity.
At Knox Chiropractic we are professionally trained to take care of pregnant women. We utilize techniques which are both beneficial and safe for the caring of unborn babies and their mothers. Our care will ensure that no unnecessary pressure is placed on the abdomen while relieving back and nerve pain. We also have knowledge in areas such as nutrition and diet specifically to help expectant woman, both during and after pregnancy.
Most medical experts and women who have previously been treated by a Chiropractor agree that spinal adjustments offer non-invasive relief against the back pain caused by pregnancy. We offer correct techniques for stretching to relieve sciatic pain. This can reduce pressure and unwanted strain on hips and back. Such care is considered a safer option than medicines, both for the mother and her new born. When combined with exercise and proper nutrition, the mother and the baby are able to experience a drug-free and mostly pain-free pregnancy.
Don’t forget Post Birth Care
After birth many women suffer joint pain in addition to the discomfort because of the childbirth. With chiropractic care, any arising joint problems caused by the additional weight of the baby, together with any strain occurring on the body due to unbalanced or improper lifting can be treated. This reduced the suffering the mother undergoes even after the baby is born.
Various aches and pains including headaches that can occur during and after childbirth can also be treated with the help of a chiropractor. If you manage to maintain regular chiropractic care during the entire period of your pregnancy, then you can minimize or avoid completely some of the severe causes of pain and discomfort.
