Sports Injury and MSK Chiropractor | Cambridge - Oxford - Reading

Welcome to our website.

The company operates mobile Musculoskeletal / MSK Chiropractic and sports injury clinic services. Our focus is on identifying and treating the cause of a problem, not just the symptom. Injuries often create pain, affect how we move and our enjoyment of day to day life. Our Musculoskeletal MSK Chiropractor's use multiple techniques to assess and treat you the individual patient and your pain/symptoms. Treatments typically include a mix of Musculoskeletal / MSK Chiropractic (the McTimoney method) and a combination of advanced soft tissue techniques. Training in Chiropractic and advanced soft tissue therapy techniques enables our practitioners to treat a wider range of sports injuries and musculoskeletal related conditions. One can read further details about specific types of sports injury via the Blog.

Restoring movement to address pain

Our primary role as Musculoskeletal Chiropractors is to restore "normal" functional movement. Moving and exercise are far more important than most people realise. Muscle contractions caused by movement are needed to help move blood through veins and lymph through the lymphatic system. Furthermore, joint structures such as cartilage rely on activity to squeeze nutrients and waste products in and out of tissues. The evidence shows that activity is important for both musculoskeletal health, immunology and health in general.

Restrictions in movement can occur due to specific medical conditions, injury, "lack of use, misuse, overuse and abuse" (Leon Chaitow, Osteopath). Our bodies also have to contend with other constant forces in day-to-day life such as gravity. These factors can cause restrictions in movement and changes in tensional forces throughout the body (see Biotensegrity article for further details). Changes in tensile forces can result in discomfort, pain and sometimes other types of symptoms. Unresolved injuries frequently lead to adaptive changes far from the original injury site. Over time these adaptive changes can lead to the irritation of other areas far from the initial injury site.

Our Musculoskeletal Chiropractors utilise a combination of the gentle McTimoney Chiropractic technique, advanced soft tissue therapy and prescriptive exercise. Such an approach helps our Chiropractors address both the structural and functional changes impacting "normal" movement.
