7 Reasons to be Optimistic About Health

By Doctor Paul Calladine (Chiro) Drummoyne

Chiropractic helps in many ways: here are our top 7 reasons to be optimistic about your health with chiropractic

1) Chiropractic is a primary form of health care

According to the Chiropractors' Association of Australia, each week over 200,000 Australian's visit their local Doctor of Chiropractic (1). Many of these visits address musculoskeletal issues including back pain, headaches and poor posture.

2) Chiropractic helps back pain

Chiropractic commonly helps in many cases of back pain. In relation to the treatment of neck and back pain, studies have shown that a course of chiropractic care was 250 times safer than a course of anti-inflammatory drugs (2). Back pain is one of the top 20 burden-imposing diseases and is a leading contributor to work-related problems, with over 80% of the community expected to suffer from back pain at some point during their life (3).

3) Find relief from headaches and migraines

Many people are now turning to chiropractic care for a natural, drug free treatment option for their headache and migraine pain.  A recent study (4), conducted at Macquarie University, reported participants showing a 71% reduction in migraine pain following a period of chiropractic care with 22% of participants reporting more than a 90% reduction of migraines after 2 months of treatment. Additionally, the frequency, duration, severity and amount of medication all decreased markedly.

4) Address nerve pain

Chiropractic has been shown to help in cases of sciatica and nerve pain. Sciatica is often described as pain that originates in the low back or hips, sometimes extending down into the legs. The pain can range in intensity from a dull ache to immobilising and severe episodes. If you think you may be suffering from sciatica, please consult the team at Lyons Road Family Chiro today for a chiropractic check up.

5) Correct flat feet

Flat feet may contribute to back, hip and knee pain. Many people have lost part of their arch support system and this can manifest as a variety of postural and health issues. We offer postural check ups and digital foot scans to determine if chiropractic and/or orthotic devices may help.

6) Chiropractic boost sports performance

sports performance

If you want to maximise your sporting performance, your body needs to function at close to optimal levels. Both form and function influence performance: chiropractic can help improve your posture and in so doing, ensure your body functions in a way that optimises performance and ability.

7) Pregnancy and lower back pain
