Walton Chiropractic is proud to offer a patient-focused approach to chiropractic care. We take the time to carefully assess and diagnose each patient before providing a tailored treatment package. No matter what type of musculoskeletal pain you are experiencing, our chiropractors will ensure treatment targets the specific source of your pain and provide ongoing care to prevent it coming back. Below, we outline the general treatment process you can expect when you visit us for help with back pain, leg pain, shoulder pain or neck pain.
Walton Chiropractic is conveniently located in Leamington Spa. Initial consultations and hands-on treatment take place at our clinic, but we also provide exercise programmes and lifestyle advice for you to follow at home.
The first step towards a pain-free life is a thorough assessment. This ensures we accurately diagnose the source of your pain and thus provide the most appropriate and effective treatment.
Even if you think you know the source of your pain, it is vital to get a professional diagnosis because pain can be referred or indicate another issue. For example, shoulder pain can actually be referred neck pain or back pain. Likewise, leg pain can be caused by a herniated disc in the back.
During your consultation at our clinic in Leamington Spa, the chiropractor will take a detailed personal and family medical history. We also carry out various tests which can be chiropractic, orthopaedic and neurological. In addition, we analyse your alignment, how individual joints and bones move, and muscle function.
Once we have a diagnosis, the first stage of treatment is to relieve pain and improve function. Depending on the problem, this initial care can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks.
Our team utilises a range of chiropractic techniques and will use the best treatment for your diagnosis. For example, treatment for back pain and leg pain resulting from a herniated disc may involve mobilisation techniques, dry needling and/or tissue massage. Treatment for facet joint neck pain will normally involve manipulation to release the muscle spasm.
Because our chiropractors in Leamington Spa care about improving the lives of patients, we want to give you more control in maintaining a healthier, pain-free range of movement. When your joints, muscles and nerves start to improve, we treat you less frequently and give you a personalised exercise regime.
The main aim it to strengthen muscles and maintain joint mobility. Bear in mind, damaged soft tissue can take longer to fully heal. We will give a realistic recovery timeframe for all types of neck, back, leg and shoulder pain.
When our Leamington Spa patients have reached an optimal level of recovery, we aim to prevent pain reoccurring. A personal exercise and rehabilitation plan will help maintain improvements made during treatment. We also recommend regular check-ups so we can detect and correct any problems early, before they develop into severe pain and disability.
