Should I take painkillers? 

Painkillers may help reduce the symptoms of pain, but they don’t address the cause. They may also have unnecessary side effects such as stomach upsets, drowsiness and nausea. Manual therapy is a much safer way of dealing with your pain and resolving the cause of it. If the cause of pain is not addressed promptly, unnecessary degenerative changes may result. The care we provide aims to resolve the underlying cause of pain with the objective of improving and maintaining your long-term health.
