Dublin City Chiropractic Review

Reviews from Around the Web and Chiropractic Education

We are so delighted that some of our past and present patients have been so vocal online sharing their positive experiences about the chiropractic treatment they received in the clinic.

It’s really beneficial to spread the message of what we do here and educating people who aren’t aware, have never been exposed or have misconceptions about chiropractic and what we do.

Here a couple of links to some patient reviews;, here and here  and here

The importance of the spine cannot be underestimated in its link to health and well being. As chiropractors we are exposed to the power of the body and its natural ability to heal and repair.

We understand that patients who are generally coming into the clinic for the first time are going through a painful inflammatory process and that it can be a scary situation to be in, especially if it’s the first time that it’s happened! That’s why we pay particular attention in explaining to you the current situation, why it’s arisen and what needs to be done to rectify the situation so that you can feel ‘normal’ again.

Using our years of experience and with seeing so many patients with so many different issues, we can take you step by step through the recovery and healing process, as well as giving you an estimated time frame to when you can expect to feel back to your best.

We will also assure all steps are taken to prevent future re-injury, making sure this situation wont present itself again!

Fungal Meningitis linked to Steroid Injections

Today 19 new cases of fungal meningitis have been linked to joint steroid injections in the USA, bringing the total to 233.

Corticosteroid injections are used to help moderate to severe cases of inflammation, and is supposed to mimic the natural anti-inflammatory affects cotisone has when released from the adrenal glands.

However as you may have seen or read it has been linked with the spread of fungal meningitis in America. Everyday this week the numbers of patients effected has been going up and up. It so far has been only been reported in the USA.

However even if this is a one off my one pharmaceutical company or a bad batch of steroid injection. There is more side effects of the steroid injection which you may not be aware of.

1) Destruction of Hyaline Cartilage in the Joint, which with long term steroid use damages this important joint protector and can ultimately cause more damage to inflamed joints.

2) Local infection- with introduction of a bacteria on the needle and puncturing the skin

3)Nerve Damage- particularly with spinal joint injections

 

Its vital that you exhaust all natural treatment options before you consider any injections or surgery, to any joint of your body.
