Promotion of physical activity, good posture, responsible lifting, and healthy working conditions will all feature as people are encouraged to look after their spines and stay active.  Back pain, affects all age groups, from children to the elderly. It is the biggest single cause of disability on the planet, with 1 in 4 adults estimated to suffer from back pain during their lives. Prevention is therefore key and this year’s World Spine Day will be encouraging people to take steps to be kind to their spines.  

We celebrate Chiropractic care as the first line of defense against musculoskeletal pain. For many different types of pain or injury, chiropractic can help eliminate the need for OTC or prescription painkillers.

Chronic pain is defined as pain lasting for more than 12 weeks. Acute pain is connected to a recent injury, but chronic pain can last for months. This chronic pain can lead to psychological, social, and physical problems. The majority of these pain conditions is musculoskeletal. 

Opioid overuse and abuse have become an epidemic in the US. As many of one in four patients that have taken prescription painkillers continue to struggle with addiction. This has many risks.

The value of non-drug pain relief approaches such as Chiropractic care is quickly becoming known as an effective approach to helping with pain relief from low back pain, back pain, neck pain and many chronic or injury-related pain.

World Spine Day occurs October 16th, and this year the Chiropractic world is encouraging people to “Straighten Up and Move.” It is important to have a good posture and to make time to move often every day.

Chiropractic care can be a part of the solution for reducing opioid pain. Other alternatives for pain control we recommend include therapeutic massage, mind and body methods, physical therapy and acupuncture. With Chiropractic treatment, patients will receive spinal adjustments, alternative drugless therapies and help the body relieve pain and help restore wellness.
