Oscar Mazzocco MChiro DC CHIROPRACTOR
Oscar Mazzocco was born in Busto Arsizio, Italy near Milan. In 2005, he accomplished his Laurea in Scienze Motorie (the Italian equivalent of Sport Science Degree) with honours and six years later he accomplished his Master of Chiropractic degree with full marks.
During his Chiropractic degree, he was awarded the prize for the best academic student in his first and third year while in his fourth year he won the Excellence in Radiology prize.
His empathic and positive approach combined with his manual skills and knowledge in rehabilitation enable him to help people suffering from back pain, neck pain, sciatica, headaches, sport injuries and other muscle, joints and nerve injuries in a natural and highly effective way.
This includes the alignment of bones, joints, tendons and muscles etc. If these structures are misaligned, this causes pressure on nerves, leading to altered function and with time pain will build up. The spine is a common place for misalignment to occur as all the nerves pass from the brain through the spine to get to the rest of the body. Therefore as chiropractors we adjust the body to correct this “subluxation”. With pain/discomfort we often compensate in the way we move, with arms and legs becoming an issue too therefore we often treat the whole body.
“We are what we eat” – but actually we are what we can digest and assimilate. Most of us have had a stomach bug before, maybe from foreign travel or contaminated food. This causes the imbalance to occur in the gut, whereby the “good bacteria”, as seen in TV adverts, get pushed away, allowing bad bacteria and fungus to proliferate. The stomach therefore is not working efficiently. The immune system will kick in and work overtime to continuously fight the multiplying bugs. This is the typical Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Using vitamins, minerals and herbs to eliminate the bugs we can thereby improve the function of the gut. This then allows the immune system to concentrate on fighting new infections that may come along.
The brain is like a box full of our memories and experiences. Certain memories can still plague the individual. It is common to hear patients say that whenever they get stressed, tension goes straight to their shoulders. This emotional stress can therefore prevent the shoulders from improving and causing shoulder problems to return. We use a technique called Neuro Emotional Technique (www.netmindbody.com) to address the stress issue.
