YOUR SYMPTOMS: BACK PAIN
With some 80% of people expected to suffer from back pain at some point in their lifetime, finding ways to look after your back and getting effective treatment when suffering symptoms is essential.
Due to the success of chiropractic care for the treatment of back pain, it is no surprise that chiropractic/chiropractors are often best known for the treatment of backs.
EXPERTS IN ASSESSING JOINT FUNCTION
Our Shoreham chiropractors are experts at assessing the function of joints and pay particular attention to the joints of the spine.
For every patient the team at Shoreham Chiropractic Clinic take a detailed history of your condition and perform a thorough examination to try to get to the underlying cause of your back pain.
CHIROPRACTORS AIMS TO IMPROVE & MAXIMISE SPINAL JOINT FUNCTION
Chiropractic treatment aims to improve and maximise spinal joint function and so after making a diagnosis our chiropractors use techniques such as massage, mobilisation, manipulation, S.O.T blocks, medical acupuncture and taping.

NO MORE BED REST - ITS OFFICIAL!
For persistent acute low back pain that is not going away after 6 weeks of self management, spinal manipulation with exercises, is one of the best treatment options for low back pain according to The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines.
Contrary to the old belief that bed rest was the best way, medicine now recommends the chiropractic approach to keep things moving.
You may also be given postural and lifestyle advice, together with exercises to rehabilitate your condition and to help address the underlying cause.
We find that we have our best success when we tailor the types of exercises to our patients specific needs and abilities, rather than one exercise fits all.
