Spinal Health Week 2021
Back pain is something we are very familiar with at Stratford Chiropractic with many patients presenting with this in either acute or chronic stages. Unfortunately, back pain is a widespread condition. In fact, the Institute of Health and Welfare estimates around 4 million Australians (16% of the population) have back problems.
To help raise awareness about the causes of back pain and the negative affects it can have on your life, we are joining the Australian Chiropractors Association to promote their flagship campaign ‘Spinal Health Week’.
Spinal Health Week takes place 24-30 May and this year’s theme is ‘Sore Back? Consider a Chiro’.
Back pain can be triggered by many factors. This includes but is not limited to sedentary behaviour, with a particular focus on poor posture as a result of screen time and gaming. We see this presenting in patients of all ages at Stratford Chiropractic.
Back pain can also be a result of a sporting injury and/or can impact on your ability to participate in an active lifestyle. So, if you are hindered by pain or not moving like you used to, then chiropractic care could be for you.
At Stratford Chiropractic we focus on the diagnosis, management and recovery from spinal and referred spinal pain. We also provide preventative treatment and can help you implement positive spinal health habits, including advice on appropriate lifestyle choices for your specific circumstances, to reduce the risk of spinal health issues arising.
