Elizabeth Walker is a Glen Waverley chiropractors with significant experience in treating pain that occurs in the musculoskeletal system. Neck and back pain affect thousands of Australians at any time and there are many possible causes. Sports injury, sciatica and slipped discs are just a few. Less obvious causes include poor posture, tension and being overweight as these may place pressure on the spine and muscles.
When we carry extra weight on our frame (just as when we carry a heavy item) we put extra pressure on muscles which may lead to muscle tension and misalignments. Regular tension may also lead to misalignments and even to tension headaches.
If you are experiencing headaches, back pain or even discomfort form muscle strain, your Glen Waverley chiropractor may be able to assist. Chiropractic uses hand movements and gentle pressure thrusts called adjustments, to try to reduce stiffness and inflammation and restore mobility to affected areas. Most people experience little if any discomfort from chiropractic.
Our Glen Waverley chiropractors will always recommend a healthy diet and suitable exercise as positive steps you can take to look after your spine. It's also important to look at your environment to see where there might be triggers for pain. Having an ergonomic office space, a supportive mattress and looking at ways to reduce tension in your life may all be of benefit.
