The team at Walton Chiropractic has the knowledge and skill to treat a broad range of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. On this page, we go through some common conditions we help with, but this list is not exhaustive. Our chiropractors are experts in leg pain, back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain and more, ensuring every patient receives the very best care.
We are based in Leamington Spa, but people visit us from Rugby and across Warwickshire for high-quality, patient-centred care.
People often obtain injuries when playing sport, whether from improper warm-up, impact from another player or another reason. Chiropractic care is suitable for a range of sports injuries, such as tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow and ankle sprains. We also treat general complaints relating to knee, hip, elbow, wrist and shoulder pain.
Sciatica refers to pain which travels from the lower back or buttock down the back of the leg as far as the foot. Due to leg pain, people in Rugby and the surrounding areas can easily misread their symptoms, so it is important to see a qualified chiropractor for an accurate diagnosis. With sciatica, the pain is caused by an issue in the lower back and you will likely feel lower back pain which radiates down.
Piriformis syndrome can be seen as a type of sciatica. Tightening of the piriformis muscle causes compression of the sciatic nerve, resulting in a deep, aching pain in the buttock, running down the leg.
Repetitive strain injury is a common cause of neck pain and shoulder pain as well as pain in the forearms, elbows, wrists and hands. It refers to the pain felt in muscles, nerves and tendons caused by overuse or repetitive movement. People in Rugby with certain jobs are more at risk of repetitive strain injury. For example, construction workers, assembly line workers and checkout workers are more at risk.
A bursa is a small, fluid-filled sac between tendons and bones, acting like a cushion. When a bursa becomes swollen or inflamed, it is known as bursitis. The affected joint becomes swollen, painful and tender.
This is pain on the bottom of the foot, around the heel and arch, making it hard to raise your toes off the floor. The pain is often worse after sleep or rest and when you start walking. Exercise makes the pain feel better.
Our chiropractors often help patients in the Rugby area with pain caused by disc injuries. Sometimes, back pain or neck pain is the result of a herniated, or slipped, disc. Disc injuries can also cause symptoms such as numbness, tingling or leg pain (sciatica).
