Wide range of treatments

At Jesmond Chiropractic we offer treatments for a wide range of problems, including sports injuries; neck, back and joint pain; hip and knee osteoarthritis and dizziness. Have a look at the various techniques we use, below. We choose the technique that will most effectively restore normal function and improve your alignment.
sacro-occipital technique

Sacro-occipital technique

SOT and cranial chiropractic are methods that identify the cause of a patient's symptoms. SOT practitioners understand the mechanics and neurology of the body in an organised and practical way. They analyse a patient's body to determine underlying spinal, cranial and organ-related problems. The practitioner determines the cause of a patient's problem and corrects it using very specific and effective methods. SOT chiropractors integrate large amounts of information, using several different techniques and approaches simultaneously, as SOT integrates easily and seamlessly with other chiropractic systems.
SOT patients are also routinely given guidance regarding home care, diet, and nutrition. Patients seeing SOT practitioners should know that they are in the best hands in chiropractic. SOT practitioners understand the patient's problems with ease. They use a systematic and comprehensive approach to chiropractic care. In a nutshell, SOT practitioners are thinking chiropractors willing and able to deliver quality care.
trigger point therapy

Soft tissue/ trigger point therapy

This technique involves a slow constant pressure exerted on an area of the muscle that is in spasm or is hyper-irritable. Tight muscles often refer pain into another area of the body. 

We can slowly relieve the tension in these muscles by applying pressure in a very specific manner allowing the joints to move freely. 
Musculoskeletal techniques

Musculoskeletal techniques

The musculoskeletal techniques can be applied to:
  • The joints (using manual adjustments or mobilisation)
  • Their surrounding soft tissues (soft tissue techniques)
  • The muscles
  • The fasciae
When combined, for example in the case of a sprain, these forms of treatment allow the chiropractor to restore normal function within the joint and with other structures. This eliminates muscular spasms and tension in the ligaments, thereby restoring complete mobility to the joint.
Visceral techniques

Visceral techniques

This is based on the specific placement of soft manual forces to encourage the normal mobility, tone and motion of the viscera (organs) and their connective tissues. 
By complementing the body's natural healing processes, the visceral technique is increasingly being used as a preventive health measure, and is effective for a wide range of problems associated with pain and dysfunction. We find visceral techniques are particularly useful after surgery if adhesion is present, during pregnancy when there is extra stress on a mother’s organs and people who hold a lot of tension in their diaphragm and abdominal region.
 Amy Foggett is from Cramlington and has been a patient for a number of years.

"My name is Amy Foggett. I am 28 years old and I am a community and sports development officer. I have hyper mobility syndrome, fibromyalgia and developmental dysplasia of the right hip.
"I have suffered with chronic pain and injuries due to the above for the last 15 years. It had a major impact on my life, I spent most of my teenage life having operations on my knees and constant physiotherapy to try and help the symptoms but to no avail. So medication was the only thing that helped. I went to see a chiropractor when I was 22. He explained how he could not cure my conditions but could give me a better quality of life by treating the symptoms. This chiropractor was moving away and I became extremely concerned about who would continue my treatment."
"My chiropractor advised me that he had spoken to Duncan Rockett and thought that he would be the best person to see.
Duncan now plays a vital part in my life. In the past 3 years I feel that both Duncan and I have learned a lot about my conditions and how to treat them. I now understand why injuries happen and how to try and prevent them."
"A great deal of my pain and problems come from my pelvis and hips being unstable. This causes problems throughout my body causing back pain, neck pain and headaches. I sometimes get severe headaches which only clear up with cranial chiropractic. During my time as Duncan’s patient he has helped me on a number of occasions. Sometimes my recovery can take a long time so it is sometimes frustrating for us both, but he keeps me positive and never tells me there is nothing he can do for me. I understand that I will never be completely pain free, but as promised my chiropractor gives me quality of life and enables me to live my life in the best possible way."
