Neck and Headaches
‘Since coming to see Adam my neck and shoulder tension has decreased and consequently my headaches have been less frequent. Adam is incredibly professional and I would recommend anyone visit him for an appointment.’
Fully Catered Ski, snowboard and mountain biking holidays W: www.pisteandpeaks.com T: 0044 161 20840890044 161 2084089 As a keen horse rider, mountain biker, skier and snowboarder my back does take a lot of knocks – unfortunately I don’t manage to stay upright all of the time! I have been on the hunt for a good chiropractor for some time and I am so pleased to have found Adam. I was having severe pain in my neck that had become constant and I was having trouble sleeping. There was an immediate improvement after just one session and after a couple of weeks I could feel a huge improvement in movement as well as being in considerably less pain. Adam was also able to do some work on my knee, which was swollen from an old injury, using Kinesio tape. It reduced the pain and swelling almost overnight and I was extremely impressed. Unfortunately, I had go back abroad as the ski season was starting but I am hoping to get back to the UK during the Winter for some maintenance and I will definitely be returning in the Spring for further treatment with Adam. Sports are a large part of my life and in the past doctors have told me to either put up with the pain or to stop doing sports. For me, this isn’t an option and it’s great to know that Adam can help me to keep doing the sports that I love. Warm Regards,
To whom it may concern, I first discovered Adam’s skills because his St Annes chiropractic clinic is on the same street as my flat. Since working on and offshore with a 4 kg data collector repeatedly slung over my left shoulder I’d suffered progressively from cramping in one of my left neck muscles which, over the years had spread to other muscles in my shoulder which had even resulted in near uselessness of my left arm – but only from time-to-time. At these times it felt to be the weight of molten lead, with the pain to match. When this faded there was the ever-present ‘tight’ neck muscle, which could wake me at night as, on turning over in bed, I would have to use an arm to support my head during the manoeuvre to avoid further pain. I moved my bed to avoid suspected draughts at night. Work was affected as long-distance motorway driving to various sites was painful if prolonged. I could not hold my head upright for long without cramping up. My GP had prescribed pain-killers with no other alternative treatment to suggest. Adam initially gave me a thorough quizzing on my medical status and history while also being interested in my assessment of my condition, which lead him to determine a course of action to alleviate my problems. I agreed to embark on a course of therapy, mostly massage with gentle but progressive exercises for my neck and posture in between visits. An ’emergency’ ice pack also proved useful at home. I could feel the benefit of the initial massage and manipulation immediately – I honestly felt 5 kilos lighter. I am a 56 year old male with no weight issues. Although the original neck muscle is still rather stiff occasionally, the periodic treatment from Adam is holding it at bay. I now have no problem turning my head to a cool part of the pillow in bed without waking – a pleasure beyond price! I can lift and carry and rotate my head to the left to check for traffic, all at the same time if I want!. I wish I’d found Adam far sooner as, not only would I have avoided the pain, I’d have made my life a lot more enjoyable with scope for different sports and past-times years ago. Anyway, I’ve got into fishing and my casting technique continues to improve……. Sincerely,
Concerning Adam Carlisle Coastal Chiropractic Clinic I started visiting Adam in February 2012 after seeing his advert in the local newspaper. I had been having left sided cluster migraines and face pain for the last three years really struggling at work and nothing seemed to help. I had seen two neurologists at BVH but still suffered from pain most days despite many changes in medication. From seeing Adam my symptoms are the best they have been in a long time and I feel a fantastic improvement in myself. Adam has a cheerful, pleasant and professional attitude and puts you straight at ease from the minute you meet him. After six weeks treatment I am now attending clinic fortnightly soon to be monthly. I would recommend Adam to anyone in any pain as I am sure he will be able to help
Adam Carlisle listened and applied his professional skills to remedy a completely stiff body, lower back and swollen knees after years of standing long hours on a hard floor as a cook. I play at lot of tennis and feel much more agile thanks to several treatments from Adam and even managed to mount and ride a camel in Tunisia in March 2010 without too much difficulty.
