Chiropractic

Discover pain free movement

Chiropractic is a regulated primary healthcare profession. Chiropractors are trained to diagnose, treat, manage and prevent disorders of the musculoskeletal system (bones, joints, muscles) as well as the effects these disorders can have on general health. They have a specialist interest in neck and back pain, but when they assess patients, they take the entire physical, mental and social wellbeing into account.


Chiropractors are best known for manual treatments such as spinal manipulation, where they use their hands to free stiff or restricted joints, or mobilisation, which is the gradual moving of joints. Although some Chiropractors have also trained in other areas such as dry needling/modern acupuncture therapy and kinesiotaping.


There are a wide range of symptoms that you may experience. These include:


  • Low, mid, or upper back pain
  • Neck stiffness and pain
  • Frozen shoulder pain
  • Muscle Spasms 
  • Migraines and headaches
  • Joint pain
  • Hip and knee pain
  • Elbow pain


If your chiropractor does not think you can be helped by chiropractic treatment, you may be referred back to your GP or to another health care professional. Chiropractors do not prescribe medication, so if this is needed, you may be referred back to your GP. As chiropractors support a joined-up approach to care, they may ask if they can send a brief report to your GP.


SANDS chiropractors support the treatment they offer with cognitive interventions such as individual advice about the patient's lifestyle, work and exercise in order to help manage the condition and assist recovery. Chiropractors incorporate spinal stabilisation programmes and functional exercises to try and resolve persistent problems and reduce recurrence in order to help manage the condition

 
 

Podiatry/ Chiropody

Take a step in the right direction

We specialise in the study, diagnosis, and treatment of foot, ankle, and lower leg disorders. We underestimate the continuous stresses and pressure our feet endure on a daily basis. We can help in many ways from prescribing corrective methods such as orthotics to nail care.


At SANDS we have experience in a wide range of conditions that include; discolouring of nails, corns, calluses, ingrown toenails, heel and foot pain, cracked heels and much more.


Here are some of the signs you need to see a podiatrist…


  • Nail care (simple nails, hard nails, thick nails, fungal nails)
  • Reduction of hard skin/corns
  • Perform nail surgery
  • Wart and Verruca treatments
  • Heel pain
  • Prescribing Orthotic insoles
  • Diabetes and circulation checks
  • Use of ultrasound
  • Cracked heels
  • Padding and strapping
  • Skin disorders
  • Minor infections
  • Ulcers and wounds
  • Gait Analysis


Seeing a Podiatrist or foot specialist can help you keep your feet in tip top condition for years to come. With so many moving parts, issues with feet are easily overlooked such as problematic toenails, cracked heels, nagging arch pains and verrucas, yet these issues can become very painful and result in infections or further complications if they are not treated. A podiatrist can help treat a huge range of problems like this, as well as providing footwear advice, and foot care management.

Sports Massage

Recover quicker, perform better

Not just for athletes! The prime purpose of sports massage therapy is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body's soft tissues during physical activity. Where minor injuries and lesions occur, due to overexertion and/ or overuse, massage can break them down quickly and effectively. Above all, it can help prevent those niggling injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement, whether one is an athlete, ardent keep-fitter or a once a week jogger.


The benefits of a sports massage include:


  • Improves physical exercise recovery & performance
  • Aids sleep quality and quantity
  • Increased levels of relaxation
  • Reduced symptoms of psychological and physical stress
  • Reduced recovery time post-injury
  • Decreased muscle soreness and stiffness after physical activity or exercise
  • Increased range of motion, resulting in enhanced flexibility
  • Reduction in discomfort, muscular pain, and muscle tension


The treatment is not just for the sports person; anyone can benefit from sports massage, including people in physically demanding jobs and those not quite so obvious (occupational, emotional and postural stress may produce many similar characteristics to sports injuries). 


Sports massage tends to be deeper and more intense. It is based on various elements of Swedish massage and often incorporates a combination of other techniques involving stretching, compression, friction, toning and trigger point response techniques similar to Acupressure and Shiatsu. Our skilled therapists bring together this blend of techniques, knowledge and advice during treatment, to work effectively with the client to bring about optimum performance and to provide injury-free training and minimise post event injuries.
