It’s amazing how we put up with pain in our joints, a stiff back or old sporting injuries that all too often come back to haunt us. Of course, aches and pains are part of growing older but does that really mean we have to learn to live with all that discomfort?
Taking a more proactive approach might be more useful and your friendly Ealing chiropractor at The Spine & Joint Centre is here to help.
Long Term Back Pain
There are literally millions of people around the world who, at some point, suffer from a lower back problem. Normally, after a little rest, that issue will get better. But it can often reoccur when we least expect it. We turn suddenly and the lower back goes. We sit on a cold bench in the winter and everything seizes up.
If you’ve never been incapacitated by a lower back issue, you won’t really understand how painful and restricting it can be. Most people put up with a troubling back and do little or nothing to make sure it doesn’t turn from an acute condition into a chronic one. Regular exercise can help but so can paying a visit to your local chiropractor.
In other words, you don’t have to suffer in silence and watch your back problem get gradually worse over the years. Being proactive and booking an appointment with a chiropractor will help give you the tools to manage your issue better in the future.
Osteoarthritis and Painful Joints
Another problem that we often live with as we get older is wear and tear arthritis. We put up with nagging pain and lack of mobility when we should be doing something about it. Osteoarthritis is fairly common in the UK and around the world. We see it’s results often in our Ealing chiropractor clinic.
Yes, it’s a degenerative condition and you can’t reverse it. But chiropractic manipulation can improve mobility and help reduce pain. Additional exercises can also put you in control of your condition and that in turn can make a difference to your overall sense of health and wellbeing.
When Your Pain Has Gone On For Far Too Long
I’ve probably lost count of the number of patients who have come to see me at our Ealing chiropractic clinic who have been suffering from an issue for years, let alone just a few months. One of the most common reasons for not seeking help is often ‘it’s just old age, you’ve got to deal with aches and pains when you reach my age’.
These same people are surprised when we are able to do something to alleviate their pain and make them more mobile. At our clinic, we take a holistic approach to your joint and spinal health and that means not just considering the pain-point and what causes that but what manipulation and even lifestyle changes may be needed to improve things.
How Your Ealing Chiropractor Can Help
The first step in any treatment is to understand the nature of your joint or spinal problem. It may have been caused by an injury in the past, it may simply be down to the progress of old age and wear and tear. Once we have identified the issue and feel that chiropractic manipulation is appropriate, we can work with you to ensure the best outcomes.
From back problems, neck pain and joint issues, there are a wide range of conditions we are able to help you with at our The Spine & Joint Centre in Elaing. Our advice is not to suffer in silence or put up with your lot, particularly if you are in pain or have reduced mobility – contact us at The Spine & Joint Centre today to book an appointment.
