World Spine Day 2018

World Spine Day 2018

Today is World Spine Day and the theme this year is “Love your Spine”. Too often, we hear from our patients “my joints are wearing out”, “I’ve got a bad back”, “I’ve got a weakness there”, “my back’s gone again.”

…. When did we all stop loving our spines?

Let’s learn to love our spines again with some quick back pain facts from our chiropractor Philippa Oakley:

      • Your spine is an inherently strong and stable structure, well designed and well equipped to cope with the stresses and strains we place on it each day.

      • 95% of all back pain is not due to a serious cause.

      • Hurt does NOT equal harm. The amount of pain we experience from our back relates really poorly to the severity of the actual problem.

      • Medical guidelines “strongly” discourage the use of MRI and X-ray in diagnosing low back pain, because they produce so many false alarms… and worse- these investigations can actually scare you- which leads us onto the next point….

      • The way we THINK and FEEL about our back pain has a huge impact on how quickly we recover- by staying positive and maintaining an optimistic outlook you can recover well, and quickly.

      • The quicker you seek appropriate care for your back pain (from a chiropractor, osteopath or appropriately trained physiotherapist) the faster you’ll get better

     

  • Pain changes everything- chiropractic changes pain. (Canadian Chiropractic Association)
