Mondeor Southdale is where you'll find help for your aches and pains.
Head neck pain and the dizzy patient are all a part of the daily diet at CHIROPRACTOR Alberton, Brackendowns, GlenVista, Lenasia, Mondeor, Southdale clinics.
Mostly it's routine stuff but neck pain can be more severe than any other part of the body. Far worse than a slipped disc in the low back, for example.
Subluxations in the neck can have severe repercussions for the spinal cord. Pain and tingling down the arm, vertigo, severe headaches, and sometimes very unusual signs and symptoms.
This week I had a middle aged patient with the most severe neck pain I've seen in over a year, with increased reflexes in her left arm. Normally I would decline to adjust such a patient, except that a neurologist and an othopaedist could find nothing wrong. She had a normal MRI. Increased reflexes are weighed with great circumspection.
Happily, after only one adjustment, she had 70% less pain, and one of the reflexes has returned to normal. I wonder what tomorrow will yield? Subluxations can have profound neurological effects.
Update: She has almost no pain after two treatments, but the reflexes are still not normal. Interprofessional cooperation is vital when dealing with head neck pain.
That's only an anecdote, by the way. They carry no weight. Look rather at the Chiropractic research for making important decisions about your health. The next link called What is Chiropractic will give you a better idea of what we do, and why.
Few things are worse than Vertigo Dizziness. Horrible.

SHINGLES ... and Chiropractic?
There is a glut of pills to ease Indigestion Heartburn ... it's a complex subject, but certainly one of the causes is a rib subluxation. The diaphragm attaches to the lower six ribs and is enervated by the phrenic nerve that comes from the lower neck. Before major surgery, consider a chiropractic examination.
Also remember not to drink with meals, or immediately after meals if you suffer from indigestion. If you suffer from serious heartburn and GERD - gastric reflux - try not eating dinner for at least half and hour, even longer, after anything to drink, especially alcohol.
If all else fails, and you can't fall pregnant, then a consult with your
local DC to see if there are fixations in your spine and pelvis is not

The term sciatica is well known to most folk. It's the mostly commonly pinched nerve in the lower back, and help for sciatica pain is bread and butter for the chiropractor Alberton Brackendowns GlenVista Lenasia Mondeor Southdale. Less commonly known is a pinched Femoral nerve which emerges higher in the lumbar spine.
Affecting older persons generally more than sciatica, femoral nerve damage causes severe pain in the buttock, side and front of the thigh, stretching down around the knee to the inner leg.
It may cause weakness of the thigh muscle causing the knee to give.
Because it supplies the area around the hip and knee, medical research shows that nearly a third of people with femoral nerve damage are mis-diagnosed with hip and knee pathology.
Do you have hip pain? First, lying on your back, pull your knee to the chest, and then the opposite shoulder. If it's not particularly stiff or painful, the you may want to consult your local chiropractor to see if the pain could be coming from the femoral nerve.

HEALTHY LIVING TIPS
You'll find your chiropractor taking an interest in your whole being. What you eat, how much you exercise, when you last took a holiday. Obesity and Arthritis for example are first cousins, they walk hand-in-hand into our practices on a daily basis.
Be sure to include fibre into every meal in the form of whole fruit, salad and vegetables and whole grains. Fibre promotes a sense of lasting fullness. But more important a shortage of fibre is the cause of that nasty of nasties, contipation. Research proves that indeed quick constipation relief is best obtained from prunes. Cheap and easy. Six prunes research proves is more effective than the standard medical treatment. Soak them in boiling water and add them to your cereal.
The Kegel exercises are a must for every woman, and even help men with premature ejaculation. For a weak bladder, but also for the core muscles.
Deep pelvic pain.
Any muscle can cause pain, be it in the neck, shoulder, back... and the deep pelvic muscles. Some of them such as the Coccygeus and Ilio-Coccygeus can be reached externally, but sometimes the best solution for deep pelvic pain, once frank pathology has been ruled out, is to treat the muscles via the rectum.
However, it remains controversial, not in the "chiropractic domain" and thus women often find there is no one able and willing to help them with deep pelvic pain. The condition is intimately connected with subluxations of the sacrum, and will probably in the future become part of the chiropractic domain. It is certainly a joint-muscle-nerve condition. The Kegel exercises may help.
