Are your bad habits causing you pain? Whether it’s a little too much time on the couch, stuck in a slump or just not being as active as you should, these can all be contributing factors to your back pain.
With the average Australian sitting for more than half their day,1 and 56% of Australians not getting the recommended amount of exercise per week,2 this may cause a new episode of back pain or trigger pre-existing pain.
If your habits are causing you pain, then Consider a Chiro! Your local ACA chiropractor carefully assesses each patient individually and tailors your care accordingly, by using a variety of non-surgical techniques, such as spinal adjustments, manual therapy and low-force intervention to offer a drug-free, hands-on approach to healthcare, backed by scientific studies from around the world.
Chiropractors can also offer you lifestyle advice and assistance to help get you moving and incorporate positive health habits into your everyday. To find your local ACA chiropractor visit findachiro.org.au
