Exercise is an integral part to keeping your health and wellbeing in check. That is why when pain stops you in your tracks, it can be disheartening and frustrating to perform your favourite activities.
With nearly 60,000 Australians admitted to hospital due to sporting related injuries per year,1 this shows that Australians are in fact a nation of sport lovers. However, this does not come without potential risks to the body.
If you are hindered by pain or not moving like you used to, then chiropractic care could be for you. Chiropractors focus on the diagnosis, management and prevention of disorders of the spine, including the effects they can have on your nervous system and general health. Chiropractors work in partnership with you to provide appropriate, tailored care as well as lifestyle advice to prevent reoccurrence.
