Low back pain has become an increasingly common problem over the past decade. In a 2004 study by Walker BF, it was found that 79.2% of Australians experienced low back pain at least once in their lives. In terms of more recent prevalence, 42% of adults suffered from low back pain in the past 6 months of the study.
In essence, low back pain is no stranger to many of us. The effects of low back pain can range from mild to severe and debilitating, often leading to negative impacts on our daily lives.
Common causes of low back pain include heavy lifting, long-term wear and tear, poor posture (including prolonged sitting or computer work), repetitive injuries, trauma (sporting, car or motorbike accidents) or inactive core muscles.
Our team of chiropractors at Chiropractic Touch are highly experienced in finding and addressing the causes of low back pain and, subsequently, providing the correct treatment to give long-lasting relief. Our goal is to educate as well as treat – and by doing so, patients can feel better for longer.
