Wear and Tear Treatment in Fornham
It’s important that we try to be as active as possible in our everyday lives. For many of us this means making the effort to incorporate regular exercise into our daily routines. For others it’s going on country walks, or kicking a football around with your child or grandchild.
Despite our best efforts to stay active, there can be times when the rigours of daily life and the wearing of time lead to us feeling pain and discomfort that prevents us from staying active and doing the things we love. As we get older, it becomes ever more important that we take our healthcare seriously. Fail to tackle wear and tear when it first appears and it is possible that you may never get that active, healthy lifestyle back.

Fornham Chiropractic Clinic: tackling wear and tear
Wear and tear can be a vicious cycle for your body. Your pain is likely to result in a loss of mobility, which means a loss of mobility for your joints and surrounding muscles too. This is known as osteoarthritis, and is a common consequence of chronic wear and tear.
Osteoarthritis can present itself in pretty much any joint in your body. It is, however, most common in those parts of the body where the most weight is borne – like your spine, your hips, and your knees.
Joints losing their mobility as a result of wear and tear affects the tissue which surrounds these joints, in other words your muscles and ligaments. This will increase your pain and discomfort, as well as decreasing your mobility even more. And that’s going to make your osteoarthritis worse, not better.
So what can actually be done to help treat your wear and tear, and stop it being a burden on your everyday life?
Chiropractic and Osteoarthritis
Unfortunately, osteoarthritis in itself can be an irreversible condition. However, this certainly does not mean that nothing can be done to treat it, or that you simply have to learn to live with your wear and tear.
Restoring mobility in your joints is something chiropractic treatment can help with. Here at Fornham Chiropractic Clinic we use mild and targeted treatments to gently restore some of the movement in your tissue, easing the pain and increasing the mobility of the area of wear and tear. Stretching the muscles is another treatment we offer, and this can help minimise any pain and areas of stiffness. We also provide deep myofascial techniques, which are great for loosening the muscles and improving movement, dulling any aches.
We also offer lifestyle advice which, when combined with chiropractic treatments, offers by far the most dramatic results. This includes actions like controlling your weight and receiving advice on sleep and rest, as well as incorporating gentle exercises like regularly swimming or walking.
By implementing some of these factors into your routine, you will help improve and maintain the flexibility of your joints and muscles, lessening your stiffness and aches. Fornham Chiropractic Clinic can advise you on which of these methods of recovery suit your individual needs and condition.
