Latest News

Here at the Iveson Clinic, we embrace the chance to share ongoing news and updates about developments in physiotherapy practice, key case studies, chiropractic treatments and articles of interest to share with our readers. Latest news from the Iveson Clinic, news about new staff and even occasional giveaways!

If you browse recent posts, there are some interesting blogs, such as “Hip Arthroscopy- a hot topic”, which discusses Andy Murray’s recent surgery. An article on dizziness outlines the different causes and tests and possible treatment options such as the Epley Manoeuvre. There are also articles on inflammatory backache, the most common form known as Ankylosing Spondylitis, and a further blog discusses knee arthroscopy or keyhole surgery to the knee. Recent research has found that treatment of degenerative arthritis of the knee combined with meniscal tears does just as well with physiotherapy and exercise as opposed to knee arthroscopy.

A blog on World Acupuncture Day discusses some potential benefits of acupuncture, with evidence regarding treatments for shoulder, tennis elbow, knee, back pain and headaches. A further article titled, “Keep on running”, discusses how trigger point needling is becoming increasingly popular in the sporting world due to the rapid effect it has on pain arising from tense muscles and myofascial tissue.

Latest news also comments on topical issue related to the time of year, such as early spring and everyone getting out in the garden, to winter time and slipping over on the ice!

My Back Pain Has Gone. Now What?

Symptom guided treatment, or a maintenance care programme?

Non-specific low back pain is a complex, multi-faceted problem, which encompasses social, behavioural and psychological factors.

Many chiropractors use one of two strategies once a patient has recovered from their low back pain: to finish treatment and possibly continue with exercises, and only have further treatment when the pain returns (this is known as symptom-guided treatment) or to go on to a maintenance care programme….

Dizziness

Dizziness

Do you suffer from a whirling, spinning or dizziness feeling? If so you are not alone, it is reported that up to 50% of adults will experience dizziness at some point. There are many causes for dizziness, one of these is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), which is a condition of the inner ear. We can assess for this using the Hallpike-Dix test. This helps us to determine if your inner ear is the cause of the dizziness. If this is the case then the Epley Manoeuvre can be simply performed by our trained health professional. In most cases this quickly resolves the symptoms….To read more click on the green header above….

Are your New Year Resolutions looking rocky?

Did you make a New Year Resolution to get fitter, lose weight or start exercising? January is the peak time for joining a gym or signing up to a weight-loss programme. However many of us find ourselves flagging by the end of the month (if not before!) and our resolutions start to look decidedly rocky. One of the reasons people give up on exercise can be pains or strains. According to the British Chiropractic Association, exercise is the trigger for 30% of those experiencing back or neck pain. It’s vital to be well-prepared before starting an regime, especially if you are new to physical activity, and to be appropriately taught or supervised whilst doing it. If you stay pain-free, you are far more likely to enjoy exercising and stick to your new regime. Here are some top tips to get the most from exercise and minimise the risk of injury: •    Speak to your GP first, to check that there are no medical reasons why you should not exercise or increase your activity. •    Remember to warm up and warm down before and after any physical activity, to minimise the risk of strain or injury. Start with something less strenuous like walking or jogging and finish with some light stretches. •    Keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water before, during and after exercise – this will help your muscles work more  efficiently and will reduce aches and pains after exercise. •    Make sure you wear comfortable clothing.  Tight clothing could restrict your movement and lead to injury. •    Wear appropriate footwear for the type of exercise you are doing,...
