At the Health & Vitality Centre, we treat a wide range of conditions.
Here are some common complaints seen at our centre, and we would be happy to discuss any enquiries that you have relating to these or other conditions.
Low Back Pain
It is estimated that 80% of us will experience back pain at some point in our lifetime, some suffering for a few days and many others several years. There may be different causes for low back pain to occur however the most common are spinal joint and nerve irritation.
This can not only affect your low back but also cause pain and possible symptoms of numbness, pins and needles, burning and shooting pains into you groin, buttock and legs.
Chiropractic & Osteopathy care at Health and Vitality centre can not only aid in the symptoms but also get to the cause of the problem for long term relief.
Neck pain is an extremely common complaint seen at our centre. The spinal joints, muscles and ligaments are under consistent pressure daily due to our lifestyles of sitting for long periods, spending hours hunched over a computer, driving and increased stress levels.
These stresses can cause restriction and tightness through the soft tissues, joints and nerves. This can cause pain not only in the neck but also can cause symptoms into the shoulders, upper back, arms and hands. If these complaints are left, they may become more tight and painful over time and cause more long-term health problems.
We offer chiropractic & osteopathic care to aid in reducing symptoms and alleviating restrictions and tightness enabling you to function without reliance on pain killers.
Typically cause in motor accidents, whiplash is caused by the sheer force, impacting the neck, shoulders, upper back and surrounding musculature.
This can lead to a variety of symptoms in the upper body and is known as ‘whiplash associated disorder’ and can often also affect the low back.
Treatment at the centre may be able to help to alleviate symptoms of whiplash associated disorder and help to restore function by improving flexibility, strength and therefore reducing chance of chronic pain and recurrences. If these complaints are left, they may become more tense and painful over a period of time and could cause further chronic health problems.
Headaches & Migraines
