Thousands seek help for back pain

EACH week, there are approximately 200,000 visits to Australian chiropractors for a broad range of reasons.

Did you know that back problems are responsible for one-third of all Australian workplace injuries?

Our backs were not designed to spend long periods of time sitting at desks, or lifting heavy weights — both common features of many work environments.

After headaches and colds, back pain is the third most common reason for taking off work.

Back, neck and spinal problems are also big contributors to lost productivity in the workplace, and many Australians suffer at work as a result of incorrect posture, extended computer use and poor ergonomics.

Do you suffer from headaches? Chiropractic is effective in providing safe, natural relief of headaches, not just back pain.

Chiropractic — the largest non-surgical, non-drug prescribing, primary contact health care profession in the world.

A natural approach to health, chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the spine and the nervous system.

The primary focus of chiropractic is the location, correction and prevention of impairments to the nervous system.
