Common Problems | Chiropractor Cheltenham
A variety of symptoms can indicate an underlying cause that may be effectively treated by chiropractic treatment
Pain is usually what prompts a patient to visit initially and the following problems are commonly seen in clinic:
- Low Back pain, acute and chronic.
- Neck pain, acute and chronic.
- Headaches: Tension-related.
- Pain associated with osteo-arthritis.
- Repetitive Strain Injuries (tennis elbow).
- Pregnancy-related back and pelvic pain.
- Shoulder problems.
- Plantar fasciitis.
- Knee pain.
I am interested in finding out the root cause of the pain, so that we can address this rather than just treating the symptoms. Pain can be the last symptom of dysfunction so getting regularly adjusted can help prevent painful episodes.
