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!

If you find our latest news blogs of interest, why not like the Iveson Clinic on Facebook, where articles are regularly available, as well as occasional giveaway promotions.

(Physiotherapists and Chiropractors have to undertake a certain number of hours CPD training each year to stay abreast of current developments and evidence based treatments.)

Could your Hip Pain be Sacroiliac Joint Pain?

Inflammatory Backache

What is Inflammatory Backache?

Many people think of back pain being caused by poor posture, lifting badly or even just ‘wear and tear’.

However, there is another group of patients who suffer from inflammatory backache. Although only a very small percentage of back pain sufferers have this, physiotherapists and chiropractors are trained to pick up possible tell-tale signs.  If caught early, this can prevent more complications in later life.

Inflammation of the pelvic and spinal joints can have many causes.  The most common is Ankylosing Spondylitis but it can be associated with Psoriasis, bowel inflammation or even a recent infection anywhere in the body…….To read more click on the green heading above……..

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….

Sports Injuries – How does trigger point acupuncture work?

Acupuncture works by stimulating the body’s own chemical response which aids recovery and rehabilitation. Trigger point acupuncture (also known as dry 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.

Studies have shown that needling deactivates the trigger point (hyper-sensitised area within a muscle) and enables the tense muscle to ease and lengthen. The physical act of needling into the myofascial or muscle tissue, and stimulating it by twisting the needle, stretches the tissue in relation to the surrounding areas.

Scar Massage

Scar Massage

The resulting scar following surgery, injury or trauma can have significant consequences; far greater than what is seen on the superficial surface.
Adhesions from the scar can form and attach to bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and even organs; this can then effect the function of these structures.
Scar massage aims to improve circulation, flexibility and break down the adhesions to encourage the scar to function “normally”…. To read more click on the green header above….
