As part of Spinal Health Week 2017, all chiropractors at Health Space are raising awareness of chronic back pain and encouraging Australians to seek help.
Spinal Health Week runs from 22 to 28 May and this year we are encouraging people to seek help for chronic back problems.
Chronic back pain is a national issue. One in six Australians suffer from the physical and psychological effects of chronic back problems – that’s an estimated 3.7 million people suffering. The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare defines chronic back pain as a health condition that lasts for three months or longer.
If you or anyone you know is affected by chronic back pain, the good news is that you don’t need to suffer in silence. You can visit us to find out how chiropractic care can help.
At Health Space we are encouraging our patients to think about chronic back pain and take steps to improve spinal health.
In addition to chiropractic care, simple measures such as incorporating walking into your daily routine can improve chronic back pain symptoms. Walking keeps the spine active and mobile. Improving posture can also help to relieve strain on the spine and improve circulation.
During Spinal Health Week, make an appointment at any of our clinic locations across Sydney and speak to us about chronic back pain treatment and preventative measures. You can also visit spinalhealthweek.com.au to find out more about chronic back pain and chiropractic care.
In May the team at Health Space will be offering complimentary INITIAL chiropractic, physio and acupuncture consults across all clinics.
