Physiotherapy and Manipulation
A few years ago, the respected journal “Scientific American” stated that the best initial treatment of choice for lower back pain is early manipulation; we agree with this opinion. Our physiotherapist Dr Vilja Schallenberg, is our back and neck specialist with manipulative and rehabilitative skills, we are able to organise treatment at short-notice to quickly sort out acute spinal problems as well as chronic back conditions.
The human body is designed to stand and walk on two feet, with the natural curve of our spine adapted to this purpose. Tasks that place the spine and body in unnatural positions, such as working habits and sports injuries, mean that getting it wrong can be the root cause of chronic injury by increased strain on muscles and joints causing pain. We also believe that there is some truth in the belief of many healthcare professionals that bad backs, necks and postures are connected with poor dental health and jaw alignment problems.
Arms, Legs and Knees
Manipulation and mobilization can greatly improve problems caused by work or sport related injuries to the limbs that restore correct function to the joint, muscles and tendons that have been affected. We routinely treat joint problems.
