Lagos Health Chiropractic for the relief of pain from Headaches

Chiropractic care has been shown to be a very effective treatment for a number of different types of headache. Many headaches originate from the structures of the neck, which are referred to as cervicogenic headaches.

If you are looking for relief from a headache behind the eyes, a headache on the top of your head, or just behind the ears, Lagos Health will be able to identify the cause and help you.

With the correct treatment, chiropractic care reduces the frequency and intensity of headaches. Chiropractors have to undergo a minimum of 4 years of full time study and training to Doctorate level. Therefore, you can be reassured that the qualified doctors here at LAGOS HEALTH CHIROPRACTIC are equipped with the skills to diagnose your complaint correctly and identify if your headache is suitable for chiropractic care. If it isn't, we'll recommend another form of treatment.


Lagos Health Chiropractic help for Pins and Needles

Pins and needles in the hands or feet is not uncommon and there are many causes. One of the likely reasons is usually a trapped nerve in the spine causing 'referred symptoms', such as pins and needles or numbness. While the condition often comes and goes, for some it can be persistent, accompanied by other symptoms such as back pain, neck pain, headaches, dizziness and loss of balance.

This can be worrying for anyone experiencing this problem and diagnosis can be difficult with the patient often hearing different answers from different practitioners. However, chiropractors have studied the human body for years and are equipped with the skills and knowledge to accurately diagnose and treat the problem.


Lagos Health Chiropractic can help with Shoulder Pain

Shoulder problems can be very challenging and for good reason. Just when progress is being made, something happens to set the patient back, because our shoulders are constantly being used.

Ligaments, tendons and muscles within the shoulder all work together to create the movement and strength required for proper function, making treatment of the troubled area a little tricky. Taking a tablet or rubbing in some anti-inflammatory cream is not enough. The good news is that we have seen hundreds of patients with shoulder pain and the vast majority have responded positively.

If you want to know what needs to be done for muscle pain in the shoulder, what is causing restricted movement of the shoulder, or you want to know why your shoulder is aching and how to stop the pain, Dr Wen Oates at Lagos Health will check you over and start work on putting things right. Your shoulder deserves more than just an ice or heat pack!


Lagos Health Chiropractic can help with Sports Injuries

Sports injuries are frustrating because they stop you from doing the things you really enjoy. You may feel that you've lost that competitive edge through no fault of your own. We've helped many tennis players, surfers, sailors and golfers - in fact, a number of our golfing patients have been back on the golf course after only one treatment!

Of course. the most frustrating thing about sports injuries is that they re-occur. In some cases, this has been due to the fact that the cause of the problem was not found earlier and properly corrected - many of our patients have told us that they had previously tried a physiotherapist or osteopath, but after wasting time and money, wished they had visited Lagos Health in the first instance, as it was a qualified and experienced Doctor of Chiropractic who was really able to help them!

So, if you've got a frozen shoulder on your golfing holiday or put your back out on your surfing holiday, or are looking for drug-free treatment for neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain or hip pain brought about by sailing, surfing or playing golf, then chiropractic care must surely be worth investigating.
