Head Neck Pain

About 200 000 people die EVERY YEAR in the USA from unsuitable medicines, or a bad reaction to a drug, a misdiagnosis, the wrong dose... That's because America consumes about 50% of the world's pharmaceuticals. That's enough people to fill a moderate size city, who die EVERY YEAR. And South Africa is following the same trend. This is known as iatrogenic illness or doctor caused disease.

In chiropractic we are not in principle against drugs, but we are committed to keeping our patients off painkillers and anti inflammatory drugs. One part of the solution is, simply and deliciously, walking benefits.

Head neck pain, headaches, migraines and jaw joint conditions, all demand that you take on a regular ongoing basis large quantities of medicines. Chiropractic believes it has a cogent alternative to offer: When possible find the cause of your discomfort and treat what ails you rather than the symptoms.

A widely recognised cause of headaches is the so-called the cervical facet syndrome. These are small structures in the neck (such as the Atlanto Occipital Joint) which may become jammed up, or fixated, irritating one of the large nerves travelling to the scalp. The solution? Headache Chiropractic, of course; or, one of the alternative solutions. Just a good massage can do wonders too.

Chiropractic Alternative Medicine

CHIROPRACTOR LouisTrichardt Polokwane Tzaneen Warmbaths

CAM really stands for Complementary and Alternative Medicine. Debate rages, some chiropractors are happy with Complementary to medicine, others feel we are definitely an Alternative, and others want to be part of mainline medicine.

I hedge my bets. We certainly offer an alternative to the usual medical approach of drugs and surgery, but in reality we also stand alongside medicine. And it wouldn't bother me if we became part of mainline medicine, provided we retain an element of independence. Like dentists do.

A bit of fun...

The health of the hyaline cartilage that lines all the bones in your joints is utterly dependent on the right nutrients. Many of them, but recently scientistists have identified the Omega-3 essential fatty acids in fatty fish (read more about Mackerel recipes) and flax seed, and walnuts, and butternut as crucial to the health of your joints.
