Welcome to Elixir Chiropractic. The aim is to take your pain away. The chiropractic care provided here focuses on easing your pain and discomfort by treating the cause of the problem, not just by treating the symptoms. Following an 'evidence-based' approach, chiropractic is a hands-on therapy which is extremely effective at treating a wide range of problems and conditions, from simple neck ache to chronic arthritis. Have a look at the conditions treated tab at the top of the page for more information on what chiropractic can do for you.
Emily White (MChiro) completed a full time four year training course at The Welsh Institute of Glamorgan at the University of South Wales and graduated in 2014 with a Masters Degree in Chiropractic. She began practising at a clinic in Oxfordshire, then moved to London to gain more experience and now has settled in Swindon. She has gained a wealth of knowledge from her fellow clinicians and continues to push herself to learn more to provide the best possible care for her patients.
Emily is has undertaken further training since graduating which enables her to use Western Medical Acupuncture as part of her treatment if necessary. She has also had extra training in how to effectively care for pregnant women. all the way from conception to birth and on through recovery, as well as being able to treat the newborns too!
She is currently studying for a Postgraduate Certificate in Diagnostic Musculoskeletal Ultrasound scanning in the hopes of being able to provide a more comprehensive diagnostic service to her patients with less need to refer them externally for further investigations.
Your spine is made up of a total of 24 moveable bones, known as vertebrae, and 8 fused bones making up the sacrum and coccyx. When all these bones are in the right place and your spine has the correct curves, you don't have any pain. Unfortunately, our modern-day lifestyles tend to have a negative effect on our posture, which leads to some parts of the spine being put under too much pressure. This, in turn, leads to pain, most commonly felt in the lower back.
Neck Pain and Headaches
Your head is actually quite heavy...usually about 5kg. That is quite a weight for your relatively slim neck to hold up constantly. In a similar way to back pain, neck pain can be caused by a change in position of the curve of your neck, resulting in too much pressure on surrounding structures such as ligaments and muscles. This is also quite commonly found as the cause of some headaches - either tension (from the muscles) or cervicogenic (from the joints).
Arthritic Joint Pain
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disorder that affects the cartilage of any of the joints in your body. Cartilage is what makes your joints move smoothly and without pain or clicking, so as you can imagine, a change in your cartilage can affect your joints very negatively. Chiropractic can help maintain the movement of your joints, and help reduce pain from arthritis by helping your body cope with the changes going on inside your joints.
The List Goes On!
We can treat many more conditions and complaints including extremity problems such as frozen shoulder and tennis elbow, as well as any other general aches and pains caused by everyday life! Chiropractic care can also help in the prevention of migraine headache.
