With summer on its way, many of us will be looking forward to getting out into the great outdoors and playing our favourite sports, COVID measures permitting! But whether you are an amateur enthusiast or a professional, your back is prone to the same kinds of aches and pains.
While our Ealing chiropractors stress the importance of staying active and taking regular exercise, unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for exercise and sporting activities to lead to injuries!
How Visiting A Chiropractor Can Help You
If you are thinking of seeing a chiropractor, here are some ways a chiropractor can help:
1: By reducing the need for pain relief
Chiropractors focus on natural healing instead of pain medication. Remember that the nervous system controls everything in your body, from your biggest organs to your tiniest cells. By adjusting the alignment of your spine, your chiropractor can help bring the spine back to its proper place which will open the nervous system to help your body heal in a holistic way.
2: By helping more than back pain
Chiropractors can do a lot more than just treat back pain. Chiropractic is a primary healthcare profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of conditions that are due to problems with the joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves of the body. Chiropractors often see patients with problems of the neck, shoulder, elbow, hip , knee, ankle and foot.
3: By treating the source of pain
One of the main benefits of seeing a chiropractor is that they treat the source of pain. While many doctors treat the symptoms, a chiropractor will treat the cause. By realigning your spine, chiropractic can help alleviate pressure and allow your body to heal itself naturally.
According to our Ealing chiropractor, many top sports professionals and teams use a reputable chiropractor as part of their medical care package. Joint and muscle pain is not the only problem for sports professionals.
Many athletes find that they reach a ‘threshold’ of ability, and find it difficult to advance any further, no matter how hard they work and push themselves. Chiropractic treatment can improve your range of motion, balance and coordination, which is why so many serious sportspeople see a chiropractor on a regular basis.
If you play sports or undertake physical exercise, it may be a good idea to see a reputable chiropractor on a regular basis.
Visiting Our Ealing Chiropractors
If you are suffering sporting aches and pains a visit to our Ealing chiropractic clinic may be the answer to help you.
When you visit The Spine & Joint Centre, your chiropractor will carry out a full examination of your spine and ask questions about your sporting experience, posture, medical history and lifestyle. This will help to identify the cause of any pain you may be experiencing.
If appropriate, your treatment will then begin where your chiropractor will use gentle, painless manipulation to work on your joints and muscles.
Chiropractic treatment can also help to strengthen the affected areas, improve your flexibility and assist in preventing future pain flare-ups.
Feedback from Our Patients
Here is what just some of the feedback from patients who have visited our clinic with sporting aches and pains say about their treatment:
“I originally came to spine and joint last year with a lower back injury I got in the gym, it was so bad that I couldn’t do basic things like washing dishes, going shopping, even lying on my side or back was painful. With the help of Dr rishi, rest, and recommended exercise, by October last year I was back in the gym working out. I could not recommend enough.
I recently had to go back, I’m sure like alot of people, working from home is not the most comfortable. I was working off my bed, worst thing to do for 8hrs a day, not the correct set up so over time it has caused a really bad pain, after just 5 appointments I can see a massive improvement.
If you have pain, I would definately say don’t leave it to get worse, call spine and joint, and get the problem looked at. If I could give more then 5 stars I would.”

“Dr Loatey has seen me for many years. Initially I visited Dr Loatey for severe neck pain after playing football. I tried various other medical treatments such as physio and accupuncture, though this helped, it was temporary. Chiropractic treatment helped me a lot and within 6 months I was free of pain and back playing football. Since then I have visited Dr Loatey for treatment on my back, knee and also my ankle where I had severe plantarfacitis issues. Truly a great service and treatment on every occasion, I am in my 40s and still playing football twice a week and that is due to a combination of a love for the sport and down to my chiropractor. Thank you Rishi for the care, patience and treatment over the years.”

“I was suffering from lower back pain for more than 6 months. Couldn’t exercise, had daily pain and discomfort. Had visited a couple of different professionals but without any positive results. Last try was Dr. Rishi Loatey, recommended by an old friend, and I must say I have finally seen very positive results. Following his treatment/instructions I am able to exercise again and live pain free. From my personal experience I would highly recommend this chiropractor.”
