Chiropractic may improve the symptoms experienced from a slipped disc / pinched nerve by improving spinal biomechanics and thereby reducing the distortion on an injured intervertebral disc.
A thorough neurological assessment will be conducted to determine if the integrity of the nerve function has been compromised and if chiropractic treatment may be safely administered.
Chiropractor and weight loss
There is no evidence to suggest that chiropractic will directly affect weight loss however exercising may become more comfortable and with the appropriate dietary advice, discipline and perseverance, losing weight may become a reality.
Chiropractor for headaches/migraine
Chiropractic is very effective at alleviating Cervicogenic headaches and may relieve some migraines. The complex circulatory and neurological nature of migraine headaches makes treatment very challenging, and all possible triggers considered and relevant assessments completed before safe manipulation is performed.
