We know what it’s like! Low back pain is far too common. Over 79% of people will suffer from it at some part of their life. From muscle spasms, a bulging disc, lifting injuries, falls, sports, pinched nerves or even prolonged sitting or standing. It may range from stiffness getting out of bed to a crippling sharp pain with associated muscle spasms.
You will be in the hands of experts. Nothing gives us more pleasure than when we can help avoid a painful, costly surgery or freeing clients from pain killers. We recognise what you already know…. That no-one enjoys the prospect of surgery or taking unnecessary medication.
The term “sciatica” refers to an irritation of the sciatic nerve, which begins at the base of your spine. The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in your body and is roughly the diameter of a finger. It branches from the spinal nerves in the lower lumbar and sacral regions. It then joins together to form one very large nerve that extends all the way down the back of your leg to your big toe.
Headaches can occur with little warning and cause debilitating pain - especially those starting in the neck and referring to the head, behind the eyes, beneath you skull and into the sinuses. The most common headache (90%) of all is the 'tension' headache.
Migraines are the lancing, often sickening and debilitating. Common symptoms are sensitivity to light and nausea, they can last for hours with piercing pain behind the eyes. Correcting function of the neck, sinuses and restoring flexibility are key in dealing with nearly every type of headache sufferer.
Nothing has a greater impact on your spine than the way you stand, sit and sleep. It can’t be overstated. Prolonged sitting, particularly with school aged children or office bound workers have an extremely high likelihood of succumbing to neck and postural related problems. Our near total reliance on computers and mobile phones combined with prolonged hours behind a desk are the ultimate culprits. Just think what this is doing to your spine….better still, look what its doing!
