What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a very old profession (not the oldest!), practised by the ancients. Famous Greek doctors, for example, like Hippocrates and Galen used manipulative techniques more than two millennia ago.

Chiropractor Johannesburg is probably about 80-90 years in existence.

Migraine

Interestingly, research shows that migraine sufferers, clench their Temporalis muscles 14x more often ...

Chiropractor Johannesburg is where you will get relief.


Head neck pain 

Moreover, jaw joint pain sufferers almost always also have neck pain, as the sensory nucleus of the nerve that supplies the jaw joint is located in the upper neck.

Neck Pain and headache are amongst the primary reasons why patients consult chiropractor Johannesburg. Are you swallowing bucket loads of pills on a regular basis? Taking dual anti inflammatory drugs, like brufin and aspirin, simultaneously is very dangerous.

Your chiropractor will want to see any xrays you have had taken. Take them with you for the first consultation.



A nagging ache in your neck often points to one or more fixated joints in the cervical spine. Long before arthritis is visible on xray you will start to get a warning that all is not well in the state of Denmark: Uncovertebral joint Luschka arthritis may be progressing.

Fixated joints, starved of normal nutrition, become rapidly arthritic. In fact, in white mice degenerative changes are visible within thirteen hours of a spinal joint being artificially fixated.

Remember too the beneficial effect of photochemical  foods and omega 3 on joints.

Ultimately it will cause tingling in arms and hands.


Pelvic and Pubic bone pain 

Chiropractor Johannesburg

The pelvis is a complex organ causing a great many of the painful syndromes treated by Chiropractors. Read more here about the Sacroiliac Joint anatomy, for example, and this Femero Acetabular Impingement Syndrome Case File which causes arthritic-type symptoms, but starting in the young person ...



Pubic bone pain can be a great trial during the last trimester of pregnancy. Untreated it sometimes continues for months and sometimes years after the birth, making sex very painful.


FOOT PAIN

Chiropractor Johannesburg

Any dysfunction in the foot will disrupt the kinetic chain and cause pain syndromes higher up in the body. Can a Mortons neuroma cause headaches ...? Yes, if it makes you limp.

Chiropractor Johannesburg is where you will get relief. Mortons neuroma ...

  • Foot pain disturbs the gait and the whole kinetic chain.

Not all chiropractors work with feet. Ask before making an appointment for chiropractic help.


Chiropractic South Africa

Whilst spinal manipulation really dates back to Hippocrates and beyond, the origin of modern hiropractic is credited to Dr D.D. Palmer in 1895, a Canadian credited with giving the first hiropractic manipulation.

Chiropractic South Africa dates back nearly 90 years. The first, unknown chiropractor opened his doors in the 1920's. The Payne twins, Dr Ivan and Dr Alan, formed the first association of chiropractors in the late 1930's. My own parents, Dr Dick Lewis and Dr Unity Allsopp Lewis trained in America during world war 2 and started practice in Pietermaritzburg in 1946.



Early days were characterized by squabbles between two factions, one which promoted making a diagnosis, and the other just adjusted the spine. The inimitable and forceful Dr Mario Milani  should correctly be accorded the credit for unifying the two factions into one cohesive profession.

It was this cohesiveness that enabled the profession to become fully accredited in South Africa in the face of a united medical profession that called us quacks and lay manipulators.

In fact South Africa has one of the most cohesive chiropractic associations in the world; the internecine strife that characterised much of the first century is now long gone.

Chiropractic South Africa.

Education Chiropractic 

South Africa is privileged to have not one but two top class chiropractic institutions. Thanks to the vision of the Chiropractic Association of South Africa, the institutes were started despite great opposition some two decades ago. Without them there would today be no more than a handful of aging chiropractors in South Africa.

There are two very different approaches to chiropractic education ... EDUCATION CHIROPRACTIC ...


The Journey of Scott Haldeman 

South Africa is proud to be the birth place of one of the most influential chiropractic personalities the world has ever seen. His grandmother and father were both chiropractors.

Trained as a chiropractor, and still very cognisant of his roots, Dr Haldeman has gone on to qualify as a medical doctor, a PhD and practising neurologist.

Google has gone through an enormous shakeup in the last year, giving webmasters much grief.

Meantime, use the search function near the top of the left column to find more information about subject material mentioned on the page where links have probably been removed.  There are over 360 pages at chiropractic help; it's become a veritable encyclopedia dedicated to better health.


Few men have shaped modern chiropractic more than Dr Haldeman, putting it on the healthcare map with his strict emphasis by insisting that chiropractic through research actually prove with hard research what they already know; chiropractic is safe, effective and cost effective. We are the largest non drug healing profession in the world.

South Africa is very proud of you Dr Haldeman. The journey of Scott Haldeman.

Interesting challenges of the day

1. Mr B  came initially for a painful and stiff neck and then asked whether chiropractic could help the cold numb feeling running down the side of his thigh for six months. Meralgia paresthetica is a double crush syndrome with the nerve affected in the back and groin. He's 80% improved after five treatments.

2. Mrs C has a long history of severe, disabling migraine headaches since having her wisdom teeth removed. She clenches her teeth at night. After six treatments she has no migraines but some jaw joint discomfort remains; a bite plate is in the offing.

3. Mrs U has the trophy for the worst back this year. After major surgery with plates and screws two years later she still had paresis in the lower leg and severe disabling back pain. She's doing far better than expected, in no little part due to a lift in her shoe for a very short leg.

4. Mr V is 86 years old and hurt his back helping his wife into the car. Just one treatment of the sacroiliac joint and he's eighty percent better. It's not always like that.

5. Mr W lay on his back knocking down a pillar. Turning his head causes severe vertigo. He needs the Epley exercises, not pills, research shows. Update, he's fine.

6. Mrs X, a young mother has severe lower back pain, with numbness down the posterior thigh, calf and side of her foot. It started after a long drive in the car. After six treatments she is 60 percent better, but it's slow and is going to take the full 6 weeks to heal.

And now a setback, after lifting her child she now has leg pain. It's going to the be difficult.

7. This lady is a 70 year old woman, is on maintenance care for a nasty lumbar stenosis despite having to do everything at home. Her husband has a hospital acquired infection after a total shoulder replacement. After four operations he is incapacitated.

8. She is an 78 year old woman, is doing remarkably well with a bad sciatica. But over 200 pounds she is not losing weight; in fact, gaining despite my suggestions. She's high risk for a stroke. I have referred her to a dietician to crack the whip.

9. This man is a 73 year old engineer, still working, is doing fine after a long episode of lower back pain. Some pain on the side of the hip remains after five treatments. I reassured him it's not hip arthritis.

10. A 64 year old woman has had scheuermanns disease; it's left her with a spinal kyphosis and chronic middorsal pain. She responds well to chiropractic treatment provides she come every six weeks or so for maintenance treatment.

11. Mr C has been having severe headaches, and taking a lot of analgesics. It's a non complicated upper cervical facet syndrome, and she's doing well.

12. Mrs D, a middle aged woman with hip pain of one year duration, despite other treatment. Xrays reveal an impingement syndrome and early hip arthritis. There's much to be done.

13. Both Mrs E and I can't believe how much better her lower back and leg pain are. Surgery for a scoliosis and spondylolysthesis three years ago helped greatly for one year. But then her leg went lame and weak. He was responded extremely well despite all expectations.

And so the day goes; chiropractors shouldn't be treating the elderly most medical sites state but that's so much bunkum.

Interesting questions from visitors

Greetings, Dr B.
You helped me quite some time back with a soothing and professional response which turned out to be exactly correct. I now consult a local chiropractor. You write a superb newsletter, too.

Your own unresolved problem. Pose a question

Knowing that up to 70% of the time the correct diagnosis is made with no examination, no special tests, no xrays, but just from the history, there's a fair chance I can add some insight to your unresolved problem. But at least 30% of the time, I may be quite wrong! Give plenty of detail if you want a sensible reply.


You visited this chiropractic help site no doubt because you have a problem that is not resolving and want to know more about what chiropractors do.

The quickest and most interesting way is to read one of my ebooks of anecdotes. Described by a reader as gems, both funny and healthful, from the life and work of a chiropractor, you'll love them. Priced right at $2.99, though Kindle fiddles the price without telling me.
