Are you suffering from hip and pelvic pain?
Degenerative hip disease is one of the most common causes of hip pain and it is common to seek chiropractic care for the management of the discomfort.
Chiropractic can, in some cases, prove very effective in the rehabilitation of hip operations. Regular post operative treatment plans can usually speed recovery. Chiropractic can build and restore strength and thereby increase a patients confidence during recovery.
Pelvic pain can present at any stage of life. Most commonly it effects pregnant women. Pain management and alleviation of discomfort are the key aims.
Inevitable weight gain during pregnancy and the effect that the pregnancy hormones have on the ligaments effect the posture, stability, core balance and strength of a pregnant woman’s body during this time.
Working together with your chiropractor and keeping them informed throughout the term of the pregnancy will aim to keep the mother agile and free from discomfort.

Advice from Leslie
“Treatment is gentle and non intrusive. For both post operative care and for pregnancy alike it is approached from a preventative and rehabilitative perspective. In both situations an investment of time and patience is required but the results are very achievable.”
