The Australian Government's Institute of Health and Welfare estimates that 70-90% of Australians will experience lower back pain at some point in their lives and 10% will experience significant disability as a result.
Every day more and more Australians experience disabling low back pain, neck pain and headaches, limiting their ability to work and engage in an active healthy life. One explanation for this is the impact our increasingly sedentary lifestyles have on postural fitness. Poor posture increases pressure on your spine which can cause low back pain, neck pain, headaches and fatigue.
Chiropractic care focuses on the relationship between body structure (primarily the spine and pelvis) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how this relationship can restore and maintain health.
If you suffer from back pain, neck pain or headaches or if poor postural fitness is impacting on your ability to live life to its fullest visit a chiropractor and Get Your Happy Back. Go on, try and reduce your back pain, neck pain and headache.
Reduce back pain, neck pain and headache
Low back pain is a growing problem and now ranks second in Australasia and seventh in the world according to the World Health Organisation’s latest Global Burden of Disease study. Neck pain is also problematic ranking ninth in Australasia and 21st in the world. Statistics from the National Health and Medical Research Council indicate that around 10-15% of the population has neck pain at any given time.
Each week there are approximately 215,000 patient visits to Australian chiropractors. Chiropractic care is an increasingly common and effective treatment for back pain, neck pain and headaches without the need for drugs or surgery. This means chiropractic care can also be very cost effective in comparison to other types of treatment.
Preventative health and wellbeing
Research has shown that back pain, neck pain and headaches can be resolved when normal function is restored to the spine. However chiropractic care also plays an important role in preventative health and wellness as well. Chiropractors understand that a vital part of maintaining normal spinal function is by helping patients make healthy lifestyle changes around nutrition, exercise and wellness.
Adopt healthy habits
Adopting healthy habits now (eg improving postural fitness) can significantly reduce the risk of injury or pain later on and have a positive impact on your self-esteem, social relationships and even mental health.
Back, neck and spinal problems are also a leading cause of lost productivity in the workplace and forced early retirement. Early retirement can have a traumatic effect on the hopes and prosperity of many ordinary Australians.
