Health plus Chiropractic wants to inform the community on their healthcare options. Says living with back pain shouldn’t be ‘normal’
With the prevalence of back pain being a true burden in the community, the Parramatta community is being urged to consider all their healthcare options when it comes to the treatment and intervention of back pain.
According to the Institute of Health & Welfare, around 4 million Australians (16% of the population) have back problems. It is also estimated that 70–90% of people will suffer from low back pain at some point in their lives.1 Parramatta chiropractor, Anthony O’Reilly believes that while pain is the main symptom, we know low back pain is now the leading cause of disability worldwide.2
“Whether people are experiencing pain from bad habits like inactivity, or are suffering from an exercise injury, they have options like chiropractic care to help them get back to their best self,” said Anthony.
A recent survey by the Australian Chiropractors Association (ACA) found that 40% of respondents admitted to suffering from back pain since a third of the Australian workforce found themselves working from home last year. The same survey also revealed that a third of people living with pain, including back pain, admit to having reduced movement and mobility (32.6%) which has significant impacts on quality of life, including work life, social life and mental health.3
“With back pain being a leading cause of disability, it’s important that our community understand all their options when it comes to treating their pain, and that chiropractic care can be a viable option for them.”
Anthony O’Reilly joins the ACA in raising awareness of the causes and negative effects of back pain this Spinal Health Week from 24-30 May, with the 2021 theme ‘Sore Back? Consider a Chiro’.
Parramatta Light Rail
The Parramatta Light Rail project is around us in Church Street. We are unaffected in operating and opening. Access to Church Street from Harold Street is now blocked. So for those driving north towards James Ruse Drive/Brien’s Road would be better to head west along Harold Street, turn right into Trott street at the school, left in to Albert street and finally right into O’Connell Street which will direct you into the easy route north out of Parramatta. Church Street is closed between Dunlop Street and Albert Street at the moment. . Have a look at the link and allow an extra few minutes to make yourself familiar with the new layout. http://www.parramattalightrail.nsw.gov.au/parramatta-north
