At Helou Chiropractic in Preston, we offer a range of therapeutic services to help you get the most out of your chiropractic adjustments and to help you restore and maintain good health for life.
Cupping is an ancient therapy in which a cup is applied to the skin and the pressure in the cup is reduced (either by heat/suction) in order to draw and hold skin and the superficial muscles inside the cup.
From a scientific standpoint, cupping is known to help activate the lymphatic system, promote blood circulation, and is good for deep tissue repair.
At Helou Chiropractic we also perform Hijama cupping (حجامة ), which is the Arabic traditional medicine for wet cupping by vacuum from a small skin incision for therapeutic purposes.
In addition to promoting general health and well-being, studies have shown that wet-cupping or hijama cupping (حجامة) has also been found to be effective for the management of arthritis, headaches, as well as for the treatment of low back pain.
Research shows that combining chiropractic with massage or deep tissue work is more effective than either alone.
Massage therapies utilise a variety of slow and deep strokes to unwind and release adhesions and tension in your muscles and fascia, and to open up and decompress constricted joints.
Massage can also help to reduce inflammation related pain caused by arthritis and tendonitis. Some of the other immediate benefits of massage include increased blood flow, improved range of motion, and structural re-balancing.
Clinical massage is included in our standard treatments where required.
Exercise therapy is a form of chiropractic treatment used to help manage pain as well as to rehabilitate damaged soft tissues such as muscles, ligaments, and tendons, to help restore normal range of motion.
At Helou Chiropractic, we teach our patients special 'blueprint' exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own condition.
These exercises can be done in the comfort of a patient's own home and can improve their recovery time significantly.
Dry needling blends the principles of western medical anatomy and physiology, with the Chinese Medicine technique of acupuncture to create a tool for treating the muscular-skeletal system that is very effective with little discomfort.
Dry needling is great for any form of muscular pain, and works especially well for sports injuries, lower back pain, shoulder injuries, arthritic pain and inflammation, and much more.
