Ankle sprains are very common injuries.
A sprained ankle means one or more ligaments on the outer side of your ankle were stretched or torn. A sudden force like landing on an uneven surface may turn your ankle inward (inversion). When this happens, one, two or three of your ligaments may be hurt.
A sprain could be more severe; your ankle might swell and it might hurt too much to stand on it. If it’s a severe sprain, you might have felt a “pop” when the injury happened.
There are many causes of shoulder pain. We apply a systematic approach to all our patients who have shoulder pain get find the underlying cause.
Shoulder pain can be relentless and debilitating. It can often be known as bursitis or tendinitis
Early symptoms include:
- Pain moving your arm and getting dressed
- Tingling and numbness in the hands upon waking
- Dull low grade ache in your shoulder
- Shoulder may appear dropped or forward
- You can usually get some temporary relief after a hot shower.
Infantile colic It represents as a constantly irritable baby that has a persistent and most often violent cry for no apparent reason in an otherwise healthy infant. The babies may arch backwards in pain, or draw their knees up to their chest. They may kick, flail and tighten their fists and appear to be in distress. The crying is usually unaffected by parent’s attempts to comfort their baby.
Irritable Baby Syndrome The infant is generally difficult to calm, only content to be held, can be inconsolable even when physiological needs have been met, usually cries more often than a content baby and sleeps poorly for relatively short periods. The irritability usually lasts longer than the duration of colic.
Headaches include aching, dull, or throbbing pain, usually concentrated in the forehead, temples, or base of the skull.
Some of these symptoms may overlap. Often people report headaches over the whole head.
We do a thorough history of your headache. It is important to get a history because it gives us clues as to the underlying cause of your headache.
We have often found problems in someone’s neck with forehead headaches, but with headaches in the base of the skull people often have a problem in the base of their spine. Often it can be a different issue with other types of headaches.
Statistically you will suffer from back pain of some kind if you have not already and understanding the cause of your low back pain can lead you to make the best choice of treatment. Chiropractic is often the best avenue of treatment for most low back pain as it specifically targets improvement in spinal [back] bio-mechanics and aims to restore proper motion and posture. This will allow the injured vertebral discs to operate with the least amount of stress and potential for re-injury, and provide the best environment for healing.
The causes of lower back pain can come from either abnormal joint movement in your Lumbar spine or abnormal joint movement in your Pelvis. Chiropractors call this a subluxation.
