If the pain in your back, neck, shoulders, hips or knees is preventing you from working, from playing sport, or from doing any of the things you love to do, that's where Peter Hillier, Nelson Chiropractor may help.
There has been a notion (sometimes called “the natural history of back pain”) which suggests that most back pain is mild and transitory and typically goes away after a month. Sometimes this is right, but this view overlooks the high recurrence rates. As the statistics above show – this is not an accurate picture of the scope of back pain.
For example, the “Global Burden of Disease” study reported that low back pain is the sixth most important contributor to the global disease burden, and has a greater impact on global health than malaria, preterm birth complications, chronic obstructive lung diseases (such as asthma and emphysema), tuberculosis, diabetes or lung cancer.
Chiropractors have five years of university level training where they focus on learning about the spine, joints, nerves, muscles and organs of the wonderfully complex human body.
The purpose of chiropractic treatment is to help people by reducing pain, restoring mobility to joints, improving muscle function, and improving function of the nervous system.
At the front desk we begin by finding out about you, your body and what has happened to cause your pain.
In the treatment room Peter will take a more detailed history of your problem and health status, then do a physical examination using orthopaedic, neurological, and chiropractic tests to determine whether your problem can be helped by chiropractic treatment
If your problem has been caused by an accident then Peter can lodge an ACC claim on your behalf. This means ACC will pay part of the fee.
Peter will recommend treatment suited to your body, your history, your problem and your preferences.
He uses a range of techniques and will choose treatment options in consultation with you.
Most treatments occur lying or sitting on the adjustment table. Patients remain fully-clothed and are welcome to have family or friends accompany them.
Although the first visit is longer, a standard visit is fifteen minutes.
Sometimes people experience amazing relief from a single visit but it is more usual that a course of treatment will be required to get you out of pain and to restore normal function.
