Our Geelong Chiropractors have many years experience treating patients who are suffering from Chronic pain.
“There are many different reasons people get develop chronic pain. It can be a very complex problem, so it’s important to get the right diagnosis and have an individual treatment program design to meet your goals”
This year, Spinal Health Week runs from 22 to 28 May and this year we are encouraging people to seek help from a chiropractor 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 Latrobe Health Centre we are encouraging our patients and the Geelong community to think about chronic back pain and take steps to improve spinal health.
Our three experienced chiropractors, Drs Kyle and Rebecca Keenan, and Dr Phoebe Sheppard have a broad range of skills and techniques that can assist you to recover from chronic back pain and improve your health. Each chiropractor has post graduate qualifications in addition to their chiropractic qualification. Rebecca has a background in Health Promotion, Kyle has post-graduate qualifications in Pain Management, and Phoebe is currently completing her post-graduate studies in Sports Chiropractic. This makes them uniquely positioned and well equipped to accurately assess, diagnose, and manage your chronic pain in a holistic way.
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.
