Reducing back, neck and headache pain
Every day more and more Australians experience disabling lower 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 lower back pain, neck pain, headaches and fatigue.
Chiropractic care is an increasingly common and effective treatment for back pain, neck pain and headaches without the need for drugs or surgery.
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.
Nutrition & other lifestyle factors
A lot of people don’t realise that most chiropractic education incorporates nutritional training. Chiropractors believe that in order to maintain normal spinal function patients also need assistance in making healthy lifestyle choices around nutrition, exercise and other lifestyle factors.
Adopting healthy habits
Adopting healthy habits now (e.g. improving postural fitness through regular movement / exercise) can significantly reduce the risk of injury or pain later in life and have a positive impact on your self-esteem, social relationships and even mental health.
