Chiropractic is a healthcare profession concerned with the health of ligaments, tendons, muscles and joints. Probably best known for back pain and neck pain but some patients will consult their Chiropractor for a range of related conditions. If you have a concern about any of your muscles, joints, tendons and or ligaments you’re just one phone call away from 20 years of experience in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions and post-surgical care.
There is no need to struggle for a GP appointment, nor to wait 3 months for a Physiotherapy referral where treatment will probably not be given in the first instance. Chiropractic is an easily accessible healthcare service that has roots in body manipulation, used by humans to alleviate each other’s aches and pains, for over 10,000 years. Chiropractors are specially and specifically trained to help stiff, tender and tight body parts regain balance by what they do with their hands on your body.
About Fascia First Chiropractic (FFC)
So named because fascial tissue could be damaged by fast movement interventions associated with clicking. The name informs the patient that a great deal of consideration is taken on board before any part of your body is therapeutically manipulated. FFC aims to adjust with your body and provides fascial techniques in addition to Chiropractic techniques for your longer term benefit. Fascia techniques are not yet routinely taught at Chiropractic schools.
Meet The Chiropractor
Lee Wickham, graduated as a Chiropractor in 2001 and was voted in as a Fellow of the Royal College of Chiropractors in 2008 by his peers. Outside of clinical practise he enjoys cycling, park runs, swimming, yoga and qi-gong.
Lee’s clinical workload schedule is split between Bristol, Bath and on retreat. He is currently holding clinical sessions in Bath (in association with The Weston Chiropractic Centre). Booking Line is 01225 423 333. Bristol Clinic availability is coming soon.
In addition to clinical practise, Lee provides teaching time to the next generation of Chiropractors at the University of South Wales in the subject areas of Neurology / Orthopaedics and Chiropractic Technique on the MChiro Course.
The third string to Lee’s working schedule is working as part of a psychological team on retreat. Lee has a keen interest in the Biopsychosocial Model and the overlap of common mental health disorders with an MSK pain experience. An overlap that can perpetuate a pain experience into chronicity. Resulting in strained and sprained muscles and joints just not getting better. Painful episodes may start after a significant event in your life and not just a physical injury. Meaning medical investigations are usually negative and you are told there is nothing wrong with you, yet you are in pain. Lee has been incorporating Psycho-social factors into his clinical MSK work since c.2007.
