Back Pain? Consider a Chiro!

back pain chiropractor melbourne

Spinal pain, headaches and migraines are debilitating conditions that affect many Australians.

In 2015, statistics showed that back pain was the second leading cause of disease burden in this country. 70-90% of the population suffer from back pain at some point in their lives, and about two million people experience migraines (the most common form of headache).

Back Pain and Headaches

These can occur for many different reasons:

* poor posture

* muscle sprain/strain

* weak core muscles

* bad ergonomics

* extra/abnormal pressure on the spine due to prolonged sitting or standing

* stress

* obesity

* lack of physical activity

Effects of Back and Neck Pain

Pain can affect the spinal discs, joints, ligaments and surrounding muscles. Severe or prolonged pain has a significant impact on quality of life, in some cases making everyday living difficult. A recent report by the Australian Institute of Health and Wellbeing shows that:

‘Pain (moderate or higher) interfered with daily activities for almost two in five people who suffer back pain.’

Don’t suffer in silence!

Many people experience back/neck pain and headaches, but this should not be a normal part of your life. Don’t suffer in silence! It is estimated that one in 10 Australians wait six months to seek professional help, and 20% never get the help they need.

Chiropractic Care is natural and effective

Remember, there are many different options available to help improve and manage your health and wellbeing. One of these alternatives is Chiropractic. Research has shown that chiropractic care can be an effective, natural and drug-free way to manage spinal health and alleviate headaches.

300,000 Australians visit a chiropractor each week to improve and maintain their health and wellbeing.  A chiropractor will use a hands-on approach through manual or low-force adjustments to your spine, which help alleviate stress on the nervous system and body. Advice on posture, ergonomics, stretches, stress management and nutrition may also play a part in the consultation.

So, if you’re in pain or simply want to improve your overall health and wellbeing, it’s an excellent time to Consider a Chiro!
