Fascial blading is a form of gentle, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilisation. The blade itself acts as an extension of the practitioner’s hands and allows the clinician to gently identify and breakdown scar tissue adhesions and fascial restrictions.

Fascia is the cling-film like tissue that connects everything in the body. It runs along and through all our muscles, organs, vessels and nerves and even attaches on to our skeleton, forming a continuous 3D web of connective tissue. Traumas or scars to any area or the body can lead to problems in other areas through disruption of this connective tissue web.

We are proud to be the only clinic in the Emsworth and Havant area to hold these two national awards presented by The Royal College of Chiropractors.

If you’ve ever been asked to rate your pain on a 0-10 scale, you’ll know how hard that can be. It might change. It might be a 3/10 in the morning, but a 9/10 when you start moving. So when someone asks you to rate it out of 10, what do you do? Do you put it as a 3 or a 9? Or do you go somewhere in the middle and say a 6/10? Taking the middle road might seem like a good idea, and is often what happens. The problem is- that doesn’t explain to your chiropractor that sometimes it’s not so bad, and sometimes it’s a heck of a lot worse and completely stops you from doing anything with your day.

back pain older adults chiropractic

Back pain is one of the major disabling health conditions among older adults aged 60 years and older. Many causes of lower back pain are age-related with physical and psychosocial changes.

The Lancet Research Paper: Update
