Guillaume first visited North Sydney Spine and Health clinic in March 2014 complaining of centralised neck pain for over 2 years, getting worse with time due to his desk job.
Dr Mark El-Hayek applied postural therapy to Guillaume over the space of 4 weeks. He noticed a significant reduction in the pain he had felt in his neck even as he continued to sit for prolonged hours at work in excess of 11-12 hours a day.
Throughout the therapy he has commented that his body feels ‘more relaxed’. He states that his body is in a much better position and he no longer gets the pain in both his neck and lower back.
He can now do the exercises he’s always wanted to do at the gym (especially sit ups) without worrying about back soreness.
Things to notice on Mr Goudal’s posture assessment:
* Head has come back significantly
* Chest is no longer caved in
*Shoulders have come backwards
* Body is far more upright. Standing much taller
*Body is level on both left and right side.
If you have neck or lower back pain due to prolonged sitting, visit a chiropractor at North Sydney or Crows Nest Spine and Health.
Imagine knowing you are about to get a migraine which can last for days to have it switched off in only a few minutes….
Did you know that migraines are nerve pains? The nerve that causes migraines is called the trigeminal nerve, which is a nerve that supplies your face and structures in your head. This new migraine therapy works by calming down the activity of this trigeminal nerve, and therefore stops your migraines.
When the therapy is applied during the onset of a migraine, the migraine is stopped dead in its tracks and does not develop.
Some what sceptical? So were we!
But we read the research, and the chiropractors of Spine and Health decided to get trained in this breakthrough technique.
The results? We and our patients were shocked, as migraine after migraine, we were able to give relief and switch off the pain of migraine.
So how does it work?
It’s really clever research that addresses the major pain producing cause of migraines, which is over activation of the trigeminal nerve.
The neurology is somewhat complicated but by gently stimulating the nerve to the surface of your ear drum it calms down the over activation of the trigeminal nerve which is causing the migraine pain.
The ear drum nerve is stimulated by using gentle rhythmic air pressure (to the left or right ear or a combination of both, depending on the migraine presentation) to calm down the over active trigeminal nerve to switch of the migraine. The device to deliver this gentle rhythmic air pressure is called an otoscope, and has a special attachment (an insufflation bulb) for this unique therapy. It’s gentle, non-invasive and free from drugs or manipulation.
So if you or someone you care for suffers from migraines there is now a highly effective therapy for relief that requires no drugs, surgery, manipulation or home exercises.
The best way to know if you can get migraine relief and stop suffering from this often debilitating condition is to come to one of our centres and receive a diagnostic consultation. If you fit the treatment criteria then treatment and relief from migraines can begin.
Steve first attended the North Sydney Spine and Health Centre on February 12th 2014 complaining of chronic lower back pain and nerve pain into his left leg following a disc injury 10 years prior, for which he had received some treatment for but with little change.
Steve received postural therapy from Dr Tom Terrell and noticed a massive improvement in the level and frequency of his pain. As treatment has progressed Steve has reported feeling as though his posture was vastly improved and he feels younger that when he first consulted the office!
Before Postural Therapy After Postural Therapy
Things to notice on Steve’s posture assessments:
Head and shoulders back
Eyes looking straight ahead and not down at the ground
Shoulders not rounded, with no slouching seen!
Chest sitting up increasing the body’s ability to effectively take in oxygen
