Sport Injuries

In order to effectively deal with sport injuries, a thorough understanding of the bio-mechanics of a particular sport or movement is required to be able to identify what set up the injury in the first place. For example, nnee injuries are relatively common in sports, non contact knee injuries are usually a result of faulty hip, ankle and foot bio-mechanics. So having a reduced range of motion at any or all these area’s may result in knee pain. This basic principle applies to most area’s of the body, when dealing with sporting injuries and increased performance. At Sydney Chiropractic and Remedial Massage we take a different approach to treating sporting injuries, we don’t just treat the symptoms. Kieran Finnegan; our Sydney chiropractor, myotherapist (SLM) and remedial massage therapist draws from all these effective disciplines when dealing with sports injuries.

Sciatica

Sciatica

Like low back pain, most people who get treatment for sciatica often only get symptomatic relief. Sciatica is often felt as numbness or tingling running down into the leg, foot and toes.

At Sydney Chiropractic & Remedial Massage we don’t just treat the symptoms, Sciatica is usually a result from a disc in the lower back being placed under pressure and compressed by the superficial and deep muscles of the spine . As they tighten over time, they squeeze the discs together causing it to protrude and impinge a nerve in the low back.

At Sydney chiropractic and Remedial Massage,we correct the underlying muscle imbalances and any postural faults that inevitably compromise the discs of the low back. Our Sydney chiropractor, myotherapist (SLM) and remedial massage therapist, is one of a few who can offer such a comprehensive treatment.

Shoulder Pain

Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain may be felt deep inside the joint, a pulling in the front of the shoulder or more around the back, it may have a catching sensation as you move the joint. People often describe it hurts when they lay on that side, or find getting dressed quite difficult. This problem is usually a result of the shoulder joint and the muscles that support the shoulder altering its normal range of motion and putting pressure on the structures within the joint. Being generally tight in the arm and chest, can and also cause tension in the shoulder causing pain and decreased flexibility, also being generally weak in the area itself may be contributing to your shoulder pain. Kieran Finnegan; Sydney chiropractor, myotherapist & remedial massage therapist uses an extensive & holistic musculoskeletal treatment to adequately treat shoulder pain.

Neck Pain & Stiffness

Neck Pain & Stiffness

Neck pain, stiffness & headaches are commonly seen at Sydney Chiropractic & Massage. Kieran Finnegan; your Sydney CBD & Waterloo chiropractor & myotherapist combines a comprehensive & deep hands on muscle balancing therapy with chiropractic.

Although the main pain producing culprits are the muscles in the neck, shoulder and the joints of the upper neck there are several key area’s that also need to be addressed when trying to fix neck pain & headaches.

The first area are the muscles called the erector spinae, which; as the name suggests are responsible for supporting your spine and keeping it upright. These muscles run on either side of your spine & start at the pelvis and connect to the base of the skull with connections to the forehead. As these muscle get tight along there full length they pull into the neck & shoulders causing a heaviness/tension in the shoulders and potentially a tension headache. When one side gets tight relative to the other it will pull the shoulder & upper back down on that side causing uneven shoulders which tends to cause pain & headaches on one side, usually the low shoulder side as the muscles in the shoulder are chronically tense trying to counteract the pull on that side, thats why its important not to only focus on the symptomatic area as it usually compensating for tightness and dysfunction elsewhere.

Two other very important  area’s include the muscle’s in-front of the neck which pull the verterbra/neck forward which causes the muscles on the back of the neck to tighten, this may also compress the discs and joints of the neck. Another area which is probably the most overlooked is the arms, the arms are out in-front of you all day when typing and accumulate an enormous amount off bunching and shortness in the soft tissues which then anchors tightness in the upper back. When treating someone with neck pain they are always amazed just how tight and sensitive they are in the arms & how much of a difference it makes to the upper body when they have been released properly.

My approach is unique & I don’t believe in short treatments that just focus’s on the site of pain. If you feel like you would benefit from the combination of chiropractic & myotherapy you can book online or contact your Sydney CBD & Waterloo chiropractor for more information
