Auckland, New Zealand -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/22/2014 -- City Chiropractic Care understands back pain can be debilitating. According to the Global Burden of Disease 2010, low back pain remains the number one cause of disability across the globe, while the ACC reports it accounts for approximately $300 million each year and is responsible for more sick days off work than any disorder other than colds. To help those with back pain, City Chiropractic offers a free spine examination with an experienced chiropractic specialist.
"Traditional medical treatments tend to fail many when it comes to back pain. Some report the pain continues when they leave the hospital while others find it actually becomes worse. Visit North Shore Chiropractic to obtain the desired relief as patients find that with regularly scheduled chiropractic treatment, their back pain lessens over time, if it doesn't disappear completely," John Smith, spokesperson for City Chiropractic Care, explains.
Eighty percent of Kiwis suffer back pain a minimum of once in their life. Although the majority of back pain resolves with no professional treatment, New Zealand Woman's Weekly reports 10 to 20 percent of patients need to seek expert care. When back pain is accompanied by a loss of bladder or bowel control, rapid weight loss, numbness, or a feeling of pins and needles in the extremities, one needs to seek medical care immediately.
"Doctors find many causes for back pain. One may strain their back while engaging in everyday activities, such as gardening, or one may experience back pain as a result of kidney stones or a bladder infection. Those who now have or have had cancer in the past need immediate medical care and the same is true for those who have pain that isn't linked to movement," Smith continues.
The chiropractor conducts a thorough examination of the spine and obtains a full medical history. This free spine examination allows the chiropractor to identify any areas of concern or any disorders of the spine. Once these areas have been identified, a treatment plan may be developed.
As Smith points out, research has shown that one's attitude plays a role in recovery from back pain. It's hard to maintain a positive attitude when one is dealing with daily pain, however, which is why chiropractic care becomes of great importance as soon as back pain has been identified. When one feels they are making progress, maintaining a positive attitude becomes easier. Visit City Chiropractic Care today to receive a free spine examination. The sooner this is done, the sooner one obtains relief from back pain so life can get back on track.
