More effective for Low Back Pain
Do you suffer from low back pain?
You are not alone. It is a fact that a staggering 1 in 5 Australians will suffer from some form of low back pain some time in their lives.
The Many Faces of Back Pain
Back pain can have different presentations: its onset, intensity, duration, frequency and location. It can be sudden, sharp and acute. Sometimes, it can be a dull, chronic ache. It can be localised in one area or it can spread to different parts of the body. It can be a stabbing pain on one side, a broad ache in the lower back, a sharp pain down the leg, or pins and needles in the buttocks. It can be pain that you've been ignoring and becomes irritating at certain times when aggravated. It can happen immediately without warning.
No matter how it presents itself, back pain is never convenient, useful or serves anybody. Ignoring it can be worse.
Chiropractic Can Help
Can Chiropractic help with back pain? Yes. Can it help with ALL types of back pain? No.
Our Chiropractors provide an initial consultation to find out if we can help. It includes:
- A case history of your condition,
- Postural examination,
- Thermographic scan,
- Balance test,
- Orthopaedic and Neurological tests,
- Chiropractic examination,
- Radiographic (x-ray) analysis, if required.
Our aim is to be able to help you: Either we find that chiropractic care is for you or we assist in getting you to the most appropriate provider .
The Manga report, a study initiated by the Canadian government in 1993, reported that Chiropractic is "cost effective, safe, has a high rate of patient satisfaction, and is more effective than medical treatment for low-back pain." With an endorsement like that, no wonder Chiropractic has become the 2nd most popular form of healthcare in the world next to medicine!
