Back pain is an exceptionally common condition in Canada. Unfortunately most Canadians will suffer with back pain at some point throughout their lives.
While visiting a chiropractor to treat active back pain is a good decision, regular chiropractic treatment helps to prevent back pain before it develops. For this reason, the best time to visit a chiropractor is before you are in pain.
While prevention of back pain is one example, your chiropractor will also help you to avoid other painful conditions associated with poor posture and muscle imbalance. Through lifestyle education and regular chiropractic treatment, your chiropractor will help you maintain optimal health and physical conditioning. They will assess your posture, movement and consider your health history before giving you recommendations to help prevent pain from occurring in the first place.
Less Lost Time
Considering the work time lost to pain, the effectiveness of preventative chiropractic care should be considered by all employers and employees. The fact that most workplace insurance coverage includes chiropractic care should make it an even easier decision for each person to visit a chiropractor and learn about how they can optimize their health and prevent painful conditions.
