What is chiropractic and how can it help?

Centenary Chiropractic Centre

Over 100 years ago, D.D. Palmer (the Founder of Chiropractic) had a "big idea" — that good health can be sustained naturally, without drugs or surgery, through chiropractic care. Today, chiropractic is the second largest licensed health care profession. 

Chiropractors work with and enhance the body's natural ability to heal itself without drugs or surgery. Like all professional health care practitioners, chiropractors follow definite protocols to gain the information to provide you with the best care. They will take your history and conduct physical, orthopaedic and neurological examinations and may order or take X-rays.

What is chiropractic?

Centenary Chiropractic Centre

We know that the nervous system controls the functions of every tissue, organ and system in the body. Chiropractic concerns itself with the relationship between structure (primarily ale spine) and function (primarily coordinated by the nervous system) of the human body, and how that relationship affects the restoration and preservation of health. 

When that relationship is compromised by a spinal bone interfering with your nervous system (a vertebral subluxation), your chiropractor will deliver a spinal adjustment (a specific, precise, corrective force to the offending spinal segment). 

This correction permits normal nerve transmission, enabling the body's innate recuperative power to begin the healing process. It is said that the body needs no help or interference in looking after itself.

 Lower back pain? See a chiropractor!

Lower back pain? See a chiropractor!

Monday, June 12, 2023

If you are suffering with lower back pain, you’re not alone. Lower back pain affects approximately 25% of Australians according to a 2011 study published in Australian Prescriber, and lifetime prevalence rates for lower back pain has been estimated at between 70 and 90%.

Lower back pain doesn’t only impact the affected individual; it also has a detrimental impact on society. In Australia, lower back pain is the third leading cause of disability. 

According to a 2012 survey by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, four out of five people with back pain reported some degree of activity limitation, such as difficulty with mobility, communication and/or self-care. The costs associated with lower back pain are astonishing – estimates reveal that the direct cost of treating lower back pain in Australia equates to approximately $1 billion; with an additional $8 billion in indirect costs. 

The good news is that most cases of lower back pain will resolve over time. However, if you suffer from lower back trouble, you’re likely looking for pain relief in the interim. 

Evidence published in a 2016 systematic review of the literature in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, found that chiropractors are well suited to diagnose, treat, manage and co-manage patients suffering with low back pain disorders. In fact, recent clinical practice guidelines published by the America Academy of Family Physicians recommends that non-pharmacological treatment, including spinal manipulation, massage, acupuncture or superficial heat should be used initially for most patients with acute or sub-acute low back pain. 

If you’ve been suffering with lower back pain, make an appointment with a chiropractor to discuss options for help with minimising your pain and improving function.
