Chiropractor in Caversham Reading Sponsors Daughter of Patients for a Charitable Cause
January 07, 2022 at 17:11
Reflex Spinal Health, a practice composed of chiropractors and osteopaths in Caversham, Reading, has sponsored 14-year-old Gemma Phillips in her efforts to help The Little Princess Trust, a charitable organisation that helps young people with cancer in the UK. One way that they are helping these kids is by giving real hair wigs to children and young people. As her contribution, Gemma Phillips had her long blonde hair lopped off to a short bob cut and gifted her hair to The Little Princess Trust.
Andrew Green, Chiropractor and Clinic Director of Reflex Spinal Health, says, “We are delighted to support Gemma who we have known for many years. The money raised is all going to the same Little Princess Trust and Gemma's hair is going. I am sure this will help to support and transform some young person’s life at what must be a horrible time.”
Meanwhile, Reflex Spinal Health raised over £400 for the charity and presented Gemma with a cheque. The Little Princess Trust has been providing help to children and young people since 2006 and one way they have been helping is by providing free real hair wigs to those who have lost their own hair due to cancer treatment or other conditions. This charitable organisation has a trusted network of salons to allow the wigs to be fitted properly and to match as closely as possible the child’s natural hair colour. The advantage of the wig being made from real hair is that it can be cut, straightened or curled to match an original look or whatever hair style the child prefers.
The Little Princess Trust also requires monetary donations aside from hair donations because providing a real hair wig costs about £500. Thus, they need financial donations as well as hair donations, in order to be able to finance the actual fabrication of the wigs and wig-fitting service. And in addition to providing free wigs to children, they also provide funding for research aimed at discovering better treatments for childhood cancers. Since 2016, they have been funding research on various types of cancer, such as leukaemia, teenage and young adult brain tumours, neuroblastoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, and Wilms' and various kinds of less toxic treatments, such as proton beam therapy, drug repurposing, and immunotherapy.
Meanwhile, when in need of a chiropractor Caversham Reading residents can rely on Reflex Spinal Health, which also offers other related services aside from chiropractic services. The treatments that they offer are for hip and knee pain due to arthritis; back pain; cervicogenic headaches and dizziness; stress; frozen shoulder; migraine headaches; neck pain; poor posture; and sciatica.
For those who have knee pain of hip pain, Reflex Spinal Health recommends chiropractic or osteopathic care if: the pain is limiting the patient’s daily or sporting activities; the patient has been given painkillers or anti-inflammatories and have been advised to rest but with no long-term improvement; the patient was diagnosed with arthritis and told that nothing can be done; and the presence of knee pain, hip pain, or restricted motion in or more of these joints.
Back pain is another common problem that may be relieved by chiropractic and osteopathic treatment. Back pain may be caused by poor posture but sometimes it may be due a disease or injury, such as sciatica, a slipped disc, ankylosing spondylitis, and whiplash. The chiropractors and osteopaths at Reflex Spinal Health can help in restoring function through massage therapy, specific joint manipulation, and other therapies. They apply a wide range of manipulative techniques for managing back pain.
Reflex Spinal Health has a passionate and dynamic spinal health team that offers chiropractic care, massage therapy, osteopathy, and spinal rehabilitation treatment. They are ready to help as many in their community of Reading, Berkshire and South Oxfordshire for people to achieve their health goals.
