What is chronic back pain?

The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) defines chronic back pain as a long-term back pain condition, one that lasts in excess of a period of 3 months and is classed as chronic.

What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care is a form of complementary medicine. The concept of chiropractic care is based on the idea that your body can heal itself with the assistance of specific hands-on manipulation formed by a trained professional – a chiropractor. These precise manipulations can assist in the realignment of your joints and lead to pain relief.

Chiropractic care treatment may relieve pain from conditions impacting your:

  • Muscles
  • Joints
  • Connective tissue
  • Cartlidge
  • Bones.

It’s known that chiropractic care treatments generally focus on your spine but depending on the problems you are experiencing your chiropractor may focus on other areas of the body.

There are similarities to chiropractic care and other forms of physical therapy, again depending on the conditions you are experiencing you may benefit from being treated by both forms of therapy.

Generally, chiropractic care is more likely to involve hands-on manipulation to relieve your symptoms, whereas physical therapists place a bigger focus on stretches and exercises to rehabilitate injuries.

What are 5 big benefits of chiropractic care?

1.     Chiropractic care improves neck pain.

Neck pain is a common problem amongst Australians (15%), especially for those that spend many hours of the day sitting, frequently bending their neck to use a phone or have poor posture. Chiropractic care can ease your neck pain and provide relief by realigning your spine and reducing tension in your neck muscles.

2.     Reduces Back Pain.

A chiropractic care plan is a good alternative to invasive treatments such as surgery or injections for treating short-term back pain. In parts of the world, physicians recommend that doctors encourage people experiencing chronic back pain to first seek non-medical treatments prior to seeking a medical solution. Some of the treatments recommended are:

  • Spinal manipulation – chiropractic care
  • Yoga
  • Acupuncture
  • Exercise
  • Tai chi
  • Meditation

Recent studies have shown that spinal manipulation is associated with a modest improvement in short-term back pain. Find out how you can improve your back pain issues with Toorak Chiropractor.

3.     Eases Headache Symptoms.

Chiropractic care, spinal manipulation can effectively treat tension headaches and other headaches that originate in your neck.

Your chiropractor will adjust your spine to improve your spinal function and alleviate stress on your nervous system. This will allow your body to function in a more normal manner and reduce the risk of stress and tension build-up that develops into headaches.

4.     Helps Improve Posture.

Postural Dysfunction also known as “Poor” Posture is defined as when your spine is placed in an unnatural position. These unnatural spinal positions emphasise your spine’s natural curve and ultimately place stress on your joints, muscles and vertebrae. There are many adverse side effects and symptoms that are caused by poor posture, some of the more common ones include:

  • Headaches
  • A forward or backward leaning head
  • Rounded belly
  • Rounded shoulders
  • Muscle Fatigue
  • Aches and pains of the body
  • Back pain in various regions

5.     Improve Your Athletic Performance.

Chiropractic care may potentially improve your overall athletic performance. This could be due to increased joint mobility, reduced pain, and less tissue restriction.

Chiropractic care adjustments may be effective when used to treat pain caused by an injury.

Chiropractor care treatment uses hands-on specific adjustments to reduce pain and help your body heal itself. Often the focus is on issues dealing with the spine.

Research has found that a chiropractic care plan may be an effective treatment for various forms of neck or back pain and strain. Seeing a chiropractor may also minimise your need to take pain relievers or undergo invasive treatments like surgery.
