GENTLE CHIROPRACTIC CARE - FROM HEAD TO TOE

BACK PAIN

Lagos Health Chiropractic for the effective treatment of Lower Back Pain

This has become one of the most common reasons for people to take time off work...and probably the most common reason why people seek the help of a chiropractor! Research has shown that most of us will experience back pain and its complications at some point in our lives. For some of us, this will go on to become a chronic debilitating condition.

Get your lifestyle back! If you're looking for relief from lower back pain, help for upper back pain, or you need treatment for your herniated disc, the doctors of chiropractic at Lagos Health CAN help you.

With a minimum 4 years of university study, chiropractors know more about your spine, joints and muscles than anyone else...and that includes many physiotherapists and osteopaths. If you have back pain in Lagos or the surrounding area on the Algarve, we are here to help you.

Chiropractic has been shown to be effective for low back pain in numerous clinical trials over the years and is now included in the UK's NICE guidelines for GP's to follow when recommending care options to you. If only they had recommended it years ago when Clinic Director Geoff's dad, who was Sir Winston Churchill's plumber, went to his doctor complaining of lumbago...then, the doctors recommended lying still on a board for a week!

By the way, weight control is also known to be effective against back pain...because being overweight puts much more stress on the back, leading to pain. Lagos Health Chiropractic now has a Weight Loss Centre, utilising Electronic Acupuncture - this is where the Doctor uses a small, hand-held device to send a series of short, vibrating pulses onto the skin at various acupressure points on the ear and abdomen. One of our patients lost 20kg in 12 weeks! Call us on +351 282 768 044 to find out more.

NECK PAIN

It is very common for adults to experience neck and shoulder pain at some point in their lives. Neck pain and its related problems can become incapacitating for sufferers.

Injury and postural problems are the most common causes of neck pain. Other causes include trauma, stress...or simply falling asleep in an awkward position!

If you are troubled by headaches from neck pain, need relief from neck strain, or you have neck pain that you'd like investigated, we are here to help you.

Chiropractic care has been shown to be extremely effective in treating neck pain. Treatment is tailored to the individual and always includes exercises and advice on ergonomics, because our priority is putting a stop to the pain...and then stopping it from coming back!

HEADACHES

Chiropractic care has been shown to be a very effective treatment for a number of different types of headache. Many headaches originate from the structures of the neck, which are referred to as cervicogenic headaches.

If you are looking for relief from a headache behind the eyes, a headache on the top of your head, or just behind the ears, Dr Wen Oates and her team at Lagos Health will be able to identify the cause and help you.

With the correct treatment, chiropractic care reduces the frequency and intensity of headaches. Chiropractors have to undergo a minimum 4 years of full time study and training to Doctorate level. Therefore, you can be reassured that the qualified and APQ registered doctors here at LAGOS HEALTH CHIROPRACTIC are equipped with the skills to diagnose your complaint correctly and identify if your headache is suitable for chiropractic care. If it isn't, we'll recommend another form of treatment.

PINS AND NEEDLES

Lagos Health Chiropractic help for Pins and Needles

Pins and needles in the hands or feet is not uncommon and there are many causes. One of the likely causes is usually a trapped nerve in the spine causing referred symptoms, such as pins and needles or numbness. While the condition often comes and goes, for some it can be persistent, accompanied by other symptoms such as back pain, neck pain, headaches, dizziness and loss of balance.

This can be very worrying for anyone experiencing this problem and diagnosis can be difficult with the patient hearing differing answers from different practitioners. But one thing is certain - something is causing the symptoms and that cause needs to be found.

SHOULDER PAIN

Shoulder problems can be very challenging and for good reason. Just when progress is being made, the patient, through no fault of their own, does something to set themselves back. This is because we are constantly using our shoulders.

If you want to know what to do for muscle pain in the shoulder, what is causing restricted movement of the shoulder, if you're wondering how to control shoulder pain, or you want to know why your shoulder is aching, the doctors of chiropractic at Lagos Health will check you over and start work on putting things right. Your shoulder deserves more than just an ice or heat pack.

Ligaments, tendons and muscles within the shoulder all work together to create the movement and strength required for proper function, making diagnosis and treatment of the troubled area a little tricky. Taking a tablet or rubbing in some anti-inflammatory cream is not enough. The good news is that we have seen hundreds of patients with shoulder pain and the majority have responded positively.

SPORTS INJURIES

Sports injuries are frustrating because they can stop you from doing the things you really enjoy. People feel that they lose that competitive edge through no fault of their own. For example, we've helped many tennis players, surfers, tenpin bowlers and golfers - in fact, one of our 'tenpin' patients has been chosen again for Team England 2017 and will play in this year's World Championships, while a number of our golfing patients tell us how their handicap has improved since being under regular chiropractic care...and quite a few have been back on the golf course after only one treatment with Dr Wen!

Of course. the most frustrating thing about sports injuries is that they re-occur. This is often due to the fact that the cause of the problem has not been found and properly corrected. Many of our patients have told us that they previously tried a physiotherapist, osteopath or acupuncturist, but after wasting time and money, wished they had visited a chiropractor in the first instance, as it was a qualified and experienced Doctor of Chiropractic who was really able to help them.

So if you've got a frozen shoulder on a golfing holiday or put your back out on a surfing holiday and are looking for drug-free treatment for neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain or hip pain brought about by surfing, playing golf, tennis or tenpin bowling, then chiropractic care must surely be worth investigating.

ARTHRITIS

Lagos Health Chiropractic for relief from Arthritis pain

Arthritis is a common condition that causes pain of the joints and bones. The main symptoms of arthritis include pain, stiffness and restricted movements of the joints.

If you are looking for relief from arthritic pain, or help for arthritis pain in hands, hips or knees, your doctor of chiropractic at Lagos Health will find a way to help.

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common form, where the most frequently affected joints are in the hands, spine, knees, and hips. As you may also know, Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an auto-immune disease in which the body’s immune system attacks the cells lining the joints, resulting in the joints becoming stiff, swollen and painful.

As we mentioned previously, your Doctor of Chiropractic at Lagos Health will be able to go over several strategies for managing your pain.
