Is an exercise injury stopping you in your tracks? Maybe you’ve been practicing some bad habits lately, or want to keep a healthy back? This Spinal Health Week (24-30 May) we are asking our patients and community to Consider a Chiro for their back pain.
Back pain is one of the most burdensome physical conditions facing Australians and the prevalence of back pain in society is astonishing. The Institute of Health & Welfare estimates around 4 million Australians (16% of the population) have back problems.
With pain being the main symptom of most back problems, it is also estimated that 70-90% of people will suffer from low back pain at some point in their lives. This can also take a toll on your mental health, impacting your social relationships, ability to work and quality of life.
With the average Australian sitting for more than half their day, this certainly doesn’t help. Your back pain can be triggered by sedentary behaviour caused by inactivity. However, we don’t want your pain to stop you from being your most active self. As a nation of sports lovers and weekend warriors, it’s important that back pain from exercise injuries doesn’t stop you in your tracks.
Living with back pain does not have to be part of everyday life.
