Chiropractic treatment for back pain
Maybe you’re one of the millions of Australians suffering from back pain. For some in Canberra and beyond, back pain is a temporary condition that heals with rest and time. For others, back pain is a chronic condition that eats away at their quality of life.
Understandably, you become worn down when even sitting on a chair or rolling in bed can be agonising. It’s frightening to feel the walls start to close in around your life, as you have to limit your activities to minimise pain. Restricting your life avoids some of the pain but it can impact your mental health. Eventually, the pain makes it hard to focus on anything else. In addition to the toll back pain takes on you, it affects the people you love.
Fortunately, there’s an excellent chance that chiropractic can offer you a way out of back pain, even if you’ve been told your back pain is something you might have to learn to live with.
Of the thousands of patients I’ve treated as a chiropractor, here in Canberra and around Australia, many have come to see me with back pain. And many were rolling the dice on what they thought was the longest of long shots. I can’t tell you how many wish they’d seen a chiropractor months or even years ago.
What causes back pain?
In many cases, back pain is caused by vertebral dysfunction, which happens when bones in the spine press against the delicate nerves in the lower back.
This condition may be caused or made worse by poor posture, incorrect lifting technique or old injuries. It certainly won’t come as a surprise that back pain arising from years of working at a desk is at least as common in Canberra as elsewhere.
Other common causes of back pain include inflammatory arthritis and fractures due to osteoporosis. In rare cases, certain types of cancers and infections can also cause back pain.
The safe and natural way to treat back pain
If you are experiencing back pain, it’s important to seek treatment immediately. As a chiropractor who has worked with thousands of patients with back pain, especially in Canberra, I know the all-around debilitating effects of back pain.
No healthcare professional can promise you a solution. But I can assure you that chiropractic puts patients on the road to recovery every day, even after everyone else has told them there’s no way out.
