Our knowledge of low back pain has increased significantly over the past 20 years, yet many remain confused as to which practitioner to consult when low back pain arises?
At Narangba Chiropractic, we aim to change the way 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 2017.
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 Narangba Chiropractic, 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 Naranbga Chiropractors may provide an excellent alternative to drugs and medication.
The authors emphasise the importance of seeking assistance from the appropriate health professionals for the appropriate conditions. When it comes to muscles and joints (especially the joints of the low back and low back pain)- our Narangba Chiropractors are highly trained to assess, treat and provide first class clinical advice.
The Chiropractors at Narangba Chiropractic believe too many Australians are enduring long term low back pain without realising the current effectiveness of Chiropractic care.
The high prevalence low back pain in Australia highlights the importance of raising awareness about the proven efficacy of chiropractic care.
