Chronic Low Back Pain & Chiropractic Care: 18/08/15
It is a fact; our knowledge towards back pain has increased significantly over the past 20 years!!!
It is also a fact, very little people are aware of exactly whom to see in the event of low back pain.
At Wellsure Chiropractic Caloundra, we aim to change the way that people view and treat chronic back pain.
Lower back pain remains a leading cause of disability in developed countries.
Low back pain rates very high on Australia’s leading causes of ongoing disability due to an illness or injury as does neck pain, migraines and other musculoskeletal issues.
Interestingly enough, that vast majority of Australians aren’t aware of the benefits of Chiropractic care and as a result, have never considered frequenting a Chiropractors office for treatment
Chronic lower back pain is a condition recognised by every developed country in the world. This highlights the true global impact chronic low back pain plays in developed countries in 2015.
It is not a new phenomenon; developed countries are facing new health challenges on an ever increasing scale. The need for “quick fix- symptom orientated” solutions has placed an ever increasing emphasis on the drug and pharmaceutical industry and indeed Australia’s very own Medicare system. In the meantime, the treatment of more chronic and long term conditions has shown considerably less advancements.
The research into the effectiveness of Chiropractic treatment for the treatment of low back pain is well advanced. Yet, many Australians still opt for alternative treatment options such as the use of anti-inflammatories or oral pain killers!!!
Australians are now living longer, but it seems many of these years are spent living with discomfort. At Wellsure Chiropractic Caloundra, we feel that in many cases the pain and discomfort is avoidable or, with the right treatments can be reduced or managed with better outcomes.
Chiropractic isn’t a “magic bullet” for all conditions; however when it comes to the treatment of mechanical low back pain- our Wellsure Chiropractors are positioned perfectly to produce a great outcome.
The authors emphasise the importance of seeking help from the right health professionals for the appropriate conditions. When it comes to muscles and joints (and especially the low back)- Chiropractors are more than equipped to assess, treat and provide first class service and care.
Our team believe are of the view there are simply too many Australians whom endure back or neck pain without realising the effectiveness of Chiropractic care. One misconception people have is that back pain is due to old age- which we all recognise has no clinical significance at all.
Research consistently recognises that in most cases people tend to improve more quickly and are less likely to develop chronic pain if they are moving and up and around.
The high prevalence of spinal health issues highlights the importance of raising awareness about the proven efficacy of chiropractic care, so that the millions of Australians with back pain understand that help is available.
The Chiropractors’ Association of Australia has a widget to encourage Australians to sit for shorter periods of time at the computer. You can download this awesome health tool from the CAA website.
