My Chiro, My Action Plan on Pain
One of the most obvious signs that a chiropractic visit may be needed is if you are experiencing chronic back pain. Several factors can contribute to low back pain, including poor posture, excessive sitting, lack of exercise, using incorrect lifting techniques and much more.
The Institute of Health & Welfare estimates around 4 million Australians (16% of the population) have back problems. It is also estimated that 70–90% of people will suffer from low back pain in some form at some point in their lives1 and pain is the main symptom in most back problems.
Taking care of your spinal health allows you to participate in the healthiest life possible, both physically and mentally.
The challenge for someone suffering back pain is that they reasonably think the only way to treat the problem is through medication, but what a chiropractor knows is that there are a number of other treatment options and to consider a trip to a chiropractor as part of the support that can be provided for back pain.
