WHY YOU WANT THE BEST POSSIBLE FUNCTION OF YOUR SPINE AND NERVOUS SYSTEM
Pain is often the sign of a more subtle incorrect function. Pain -masked by means other than correction of cause- can leave the malfunctioning parts subject to even more damage. Therefore try to ensure your chosen practitioner is properly qualified in treating and rectifying your complaint, remember –feeling better is not the same thing as correcting the cause.
OPTIMAL NERVOUS SYSTEM FUNCTION
Our nerve system is associated with every single function and action of our bodies. The nerves coming from the spinal cord do not exit the spinal cord as a single nerve –they are in discrete bundles. Therefore an incorrectly functioning spinal part irritating a nerve and resulting in pain, might be responsible for the disruption of messages to other body parts (remember –every single cell, tissue and organ in the body is crucially reliant on nerve input). Many disease processes give no pain or any other symptoms at all until well advanced (tooth decay is seldom painful in the early stages, was the man who had a heart attack -but felt “as healthy as a horse” the day before- really that healthy?).
WEAR AND TEAR CONSIDERATIONS
When a pain syndrome is the result of an incorrect function, this incorrect function -when sustained- can be responsible for wear in the involved parts (principally the joints, when considering the spine). If the function is not restored to normal -or as near normal as possible- inevitable arthritic worsening follows.
A secondary consideration may be: incorrect function in one area may lead to a compensatory malfunction elsewhere e.g. a low back malfunction can often give a problem elsewhere in the spine, or cause pain in a hip, knee and/or ankle, not always initially with a noticeable loss of movement (or arthritic change) in that area. The opposite sequence of events may also occur.
100% NO RISK GUARANTEE
Confidence in the outcome is characteristic with all highly trained practitioners of any discipline. At Ability Back all practitioners far exceed the required minimum standard either in terms of experience or multi-disciplinary training or both. That said, no practitioner of any discipline is able to offer a guarantee of results. In order to lower the threshold of risk we are pleased to guarantee our patients’ level of satisfaction. Should a patient in any way be unhappy with our efforts (in terms of clinical performance or level of care) -within the first three treatment visits -we will offer a refund of all fees. Naturally with any chronic or long-term problem, resolution of a complaint may take longer, however the vast majority of patients see sufficient prospective change or improvement in these early stages to complete the recommendations of the practitioner. At Ability Back we make it very straightforward for you to see how much you have improved with easily understood ‘before’ and ‘after’ tests.
