WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC...AND CAN IT HELP ME?

Chiropractic is a primary healthcare profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and management of conditions that are due to problems with the joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves, particularly those of the spine.

As you may know, the cause of many back and neck complaints derive from a problem with the spine. When the normal movement of a spinal joint is restricted, it has a direct effect on the surrounding tissue and nerves, causing muscles and ligaments to tense up, often resulting in pain and inflammation.

Chiropractic treatment involves safe, gentle and specific manipulation and mobilisation techniques to free joints in the spine and restore 'normal' motion. Once mobility is restored, aches and pains are significantly reduced, muscles and ligaments relax and blood flow is increased to the affected areas...all of which means that you feel much, much better!

At Lagos Health, our Principal Chiropractor Dr Wen Oates DC MChiro has been looking after ex-pats, locals and holidaymakers by taking away their pain and helping them get back to full health. You can see what our patients have to say about Dr Wen and her team here.

Remember, chiropractors know more about your spine, joints and muscles than anyone else...and that includes most osteopaths, manual physical therapists and physiotherapists! Chiropractors are real doctors and, like medical doctors and dentists, chiropractors have studied for four years or more to know exactly how your body works...and have a university degree to prove it!

While you may first visit a chiropractor to relieve pain in the lower back or to treat sciatica, neck pain, whiplash or headache, you will find that your doctor of chiropractic at LAGOS HEALTH can help with all sorts of pain and will work in partnership with you to ensure your optimal health and wellness.

Chiropractors recognize that many factors affect your health, including exercise, nutrition, sleep, your work, your leisure activities and, of course, heredity. Chiropractic focuses on maintaining your health naturally to help your body resist disease, rather than simply treating the symptoms of disease.

When you visit LAGOS HEALTH CHIROPRACTIC AND WELLNESS CLINIC, you will be evaluated using time-honored methods, including a comprehensive consultation, a discussion about your past medical history, plus a physical examination, which includes a careful chiropractic structural examination, where we pay particular attention to the spine.

A broad range of techniques are used to locate, analyze and gently correct vertebral misalignments (subluxations) in the spine, including manual adjustment, ultrasound or massage. You may have seen online or heard people mention...

  • Diversified Technique
  • Activator Method
  • Thumper
  • Graston Technique

All of these are forms of manual therapy, some using small hand-held instruments, performed by chiropractors to help their patients recover. Dr Wen Oates and her team will also utilize muscle stretches, postural advice and exercises. But we will never use pharmaceutical drugs or invasive surgery, because chiropractic is a natural method of healing that stimulates the body's communication system to work more effectively to initiate, control and coordinate the various functions of the cells, organs and systems of the body.
