Pain is a growing issue in Australia, and one of the biggest problems is that we don’t know how to effectively deal with it. In fact, one study suggests that around 20% of adult Australians are living with some sort of chronic pain. Every one in five Australians is experiencing regular chronic pain.

This number is only expected to increase as the population ages, with most adults starting in the 50-54 age bracket experiencing troubling chronic pain. The phenomenon is becoming such a burden to the country that an estimated $34.3 billion is lost from the Australian economy every year due to chronic pain. The major problem is that many victims of chronic pain do not know what to do with it. According to the same study, 70-80% of all chronic pain can be effectively managed, but only 10% of those suffering it receive adequate treatment.

One great solution that many people do not consider is chiropractic therapy. Chiropractic is a physical therapy that re-aligns your spine, causing improvements all over the body. A common misconception is that chiropractic therapy only treats back and neck pain. But the truth is that chiropractic pain can help a wide variety of disorders. These include:


Headaches and Migraines

The Australian Bureau of Statistics found that nearly 15% of the population take medication for headaches and migraines, with most between the ages of 25 and 44. Headaches are a major issue, and sometimes they can be caused by neck and upper back pain. Chiropractors specialise in loosening up the muscles around your back, causing less stress to the head. This can result in long-term headache treatment, leading to less frequent and less intense headaches.

Brisbane Chiropractor Lower Back Pain Relief Treatments

Lower back pain is the most common reason why patients visit a chiropractor. Lower back pain is generally caused by problems with the spine. By manipulating certain parts of the spine, such as the sacroiliac joint which connects the spine to the pelvis, lower back pain can be relieved immediately.  

It is also important to ask if your chiropractor knows the Active Release Technique or ART, which relieves pain by taking away the scar tissue from your muscles. Spinal manipulation alongside ART is a thorough and efficient treatment of lower-back pain.

Neck Pain

Pains in the neck are easily relieved by spinal adjustments. Not only can they stop the pain from occurring, but chiropractors can also assess a patient’s neck to find the source of the pain, whether it be the back, shoulders, or the neck itself.

By finding and correcting the root of the pain, chiropractors make sure that their treatment gives patients relief for far longer than short-term pain relief medication.

Pregnancy Pain

Pregnancy pain is a major issue for women, causing them to become severely less productive and effective for the several months of being with child. Chiropractic care is a great way to relieve pregnancy pain, simply because much of the pain is caused by improper pelvic alignment. When women stand awkwardly to help carry their child, this leads to the spine and the pelvic becoming unaligned, causing sciatica, lower-back pain, and other disorders in the lower-back area.

This leads to pain that persists long after the woman has given birth if no efforts are made to correct this improper alignment. In one study, it was found that 75% of pregnant women who undergo chiropractic therapy report great pain relief.
