"Soothing back pain and back stiffness without taking painkillers or having to call and see the GP."
Is back pain affecting your quality of life?
There’s no two ways about it. Back pain can make you miserable. It can stop you doing the things you love and prevent you from taking part in everyday activities. Whether its playing sport, working or just spending quality time with your family, back pain can ruin your plans and leave you feeling frustrated and distressed.
Here’s what you need to know
Approximately 3.7 million Australians experience back pain each year. Yet, most people who suffer back pain say that they don’t know what causes it. Talking to a trained osteopath can help you to get to the root cause of your pain. If you’re in doubt, remember:
- Backpain that lasts more that a few days isn’t normal
- You don’t have to put up with back pain
- Back pain isn’t a standard part of aging
- Most back pain is the result of a weakness in the lower back
- Backpain is aggravated by poor posture
- Most back pain can be treated without surgery.
Osteopathy is proven to be effective in treating back pain. If you’re confused about how to best deal with your back pain, talk to the team at Focus Osteopathy today.
Painkillers can be addictive
Time and again we see people in our clinic who have gone to their GP with back pain and been prescribed painkillers without further investigation. While painkillers can mask the pain for a short time, they don’t address the root of the problem.
Before you start taking painkillers regularly, check in with one of our trained osteopaths to find out what is causing your pain and what drug-free treatment options are available to you. Chances are, you will probably feel happier and healthier without regular medications.
Surgery isn’t usually the answer
Let’s face it. No one wants to go under the knife unless they really must. While some back conditions are best treated with surgery, many can be treated with regular osteopathic treatment and exercise. Before you commit to a surgical procedure, check in with one of our osteopaths to assess your options. There’s a good chance that we can keep you away from the operating theatre.
You don’t have to put up with it
Back pain isn’t a normal part of aging and you don’t have to put up with it. Talk to one of our osteopaths about what causes your back pain can help you take control of it, now and into the future.
