St Asaph & Chester Chiropractic Clinics
Medication Free Pain Relief
Treating Causes not Symptoms
At our Chester chiropractic clinic and in St Asaph we practice a holistic approach to spinal care.
The purely medical approach is rarely successful because it does not get to the cause of the problem. Back pain usually has multiple causes, for example posture, repetitive stress, muscle spasm, joint misalignment, stresses from other parts of the body, arthritic changes. All the factors involved must be recognized and treated to effect a cure.
Functional means restoring fluid movement. When your joints are moving as they should, after chiropractic treatment, you will stand straighter and move more easily. Damaged tissue will start to heal, pain will disappear and you will feel better than you have done for years.
To get to the root of your problem it is vital to take a complete medical history and to give you a thorough examination. This includes neurological and orthopaedic testing. Once serious complications have been ruled out you will be given a clear diagnosis and a comprehensive chiropractic management plan.
For an effective cure your whole body may need to be treated, not just the bit that hurts! In addition to standard chiropractic treatment you may benefit from one of Mr Massey’s 7 carefully designed holistic programmes that will help you to heal on every level.
Medical: Functional: Holisitic
First we make a standard medical diagnosis (eg slipped disc) then we make a functional assessment. This means exploring how muscles and joints move together. Are muscles over-tight or too weak? Are the spinal joints moving correctly without restriction? Finally we make a holistic assessment. This means looking at other factors that may influence the problem such as posture, stress, hyper-pronation of the feet etc etc
From 2 weeks to 98 years
We can help you with your problems no matter how old (or young) you are. Our youngest patient is 2 weeks old and the oldest is 98.
Problems can start from birth and, of course, a baby cannot tell you what is wrong. It can only cry. A spinal and cranial assessment/treatment can ease your baby’s discomfort and help them develop into healthy pain-free adults.
We also help the elderly. It is a myth that you “just have to put up with arthritis” Although it is not possible to get rid of arthritis, many of its painful side effects are easily relieved and, in most cases osteoarthritis need only be experienced as a mild ache.
