Q: When should I see a chiropractor?
A: At some point during their lifetime, eighty-percent of Canadians will experience back pain. This means that at any given time, a third of Canadians are currently experiencing some form of back pain. Back pain can keep you away from work, school, and the many other things you love. If pain is interrupting or restricting your level of activity, you should consult a health care provider.
Many patients seek chiropractic treatments for wellness care. Others find that treatments help them to maintain mobility and good range of motion. Pain should never become a way of life, especially when qualified help is available.
There are many reasons to seek chiropractic care; work, accidents, sports injuries, household chores, even the stress of daily living can cause painful joint and spinal problems. Even if you do not have painful symptoms, chiropractic care can help you maintain healthy spine and joint function.
Here are some of the most common reasons why more than four million Canadians visit a chiropractor each year:
- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Strains & Sprains from Daily Activities
- Repetitive Strain Injuries
- Work & Sports-Related Injuries
- Restricted Movement in the Back, Shoulders, Neck, or Limbs
- General Health & Well-Being
