Pain & Injury

Pain & Injury

Whether it be back pain, pelvic pain, pain in your wrists, shoulders, feet… anywhere in your body – The elbowroom Clinic’s team of dedicated professionals can offer you relief for acute pain.

This is all backed up and a treatment plan to get to the cause of the problem and start to get you back into shape.

Pain is normally as result of nerves being compromised somewhere in your body. Whether that be from poor posture, imbalances, weakness or disease, our therapists will offer you a plan to get you pain free.

We understand the value of GP’s in treating chronic conditions and the wonder of modern medicine in pain management. But instead of masking pain with anti inflammitory drugs and pain killers our team will look at the route of the problem, help alleviate the immediate discomfort and give you a treatment and exercise plan to build the integrity back into your body to avoid the pain re-occurring.

Our services include Osteopathy, Physiotherapy, Neuromuscular Therapy, Acupuncture, Clinical Pilates, Craniosacral Therapy and Homeopathy

How The Clinic Can Help, What We Offer:

Osteopathy – Osteopathy is extremely effective at relieving both acute and chronic pain. Pain is a warning sign that there is a problem in how your body is functioning, it should be taken seriously as it is intended to prevent further damage.

Strain from poor alignment can cause wear and tear of joints along with inflammation and swelling of tissues. Congestion can cause irritation to nerve roots and severe discomfort. Osteopathy can help improve your body mechanics, releasing muscle tension and improving the mobility of congested areas – the environment is created in which tissues can repair.

Physiotherapy – A Chartered Physiotherapist can use a combination of psychological, physical, and practical methods to reduce your pain, physical difficulties and distress, and improve your quality of life.

Physiotherapists can give you advice on moving more easily and avoid muscle wasting and weakness, as well as joint stiffness. This could help you do more and hopefully reduce your pain.

Other methods such as acupuncture, electrotherapy, hydrotherapy, relaxation and breathing exercises, aromatherapy, and massage may also be of help. A pain management programme would combine several of these therapies with the aim of reducing your pain.

Neuromuscular Activation -Neuromuscular Therapy can help a variety of chronic pain problems caused by such activities as poor lifting habits, bad mechanics in a golf swing or tennis stroke, or computer keyboarding. It can also alleviate severe pain typically associated with a pinched nerve.

Acupuncture – Acupuncture is a very popular therapy for the management of many causes of pain. The insertion of the needles into specific acupuncture points helps with the flow of blood to the area for the healing and release of soft tissue damage and tension.

Acupuncture treats pain by releasing obstruction or pressure on the nerves, allowing the muscles to relax and the blood flows into an area. Pain is also relieved through the nervous system releasing endorphins and enkephalin (body’s natural painkillers).

Electroacupuncture involves the use of a gentle current attached to a certain needle. This stimulates nerve pathways and can help to relieve neuropathic pain in a very similar way to the use of the tens machine but with a specifically tailored approach.

Homeopathy – whatever the cause of pain – accident/ injury, surgery, emotional or physical stress or general imbalance, homeopathic remedies can relieve the symptoms as well as treating the underlying cause, leading to a more relaxed body and mind.

Naturopathy – The naturopathic consultation is designed to come up with a tailored nutrition and lifestyle plan to optimize well being and healing. In cases of chronic pain, addressing nutritional deficiencies and poor lifestyle habits can often improve the experience of chronic joint pain and reduce the likelihood of acute musculoskeletal injury.
