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
