Chiropractic Care for Back Pain and Sciatica

Chiropractic Care for Back Pain and Sciatica

The Prevalence of Back Pain

The majority of Canadians will experience back pain at some point in their lives. According to the Canadian Chiropractic Association, back pain is the single leading cause of disability on the planet. In fact, the only condition that leads to more missed workdays is the common cold. Despite this, many of us are unsure of what to do or which providers to see when our back becomes painful.

Treatment Options for Back Pain

The options for back pain treatment are plentiful and include muscle relaxers, painkillers, massage, physiotherapy, and osteopathy, just to name a few. However, research studies have shown that instead of taking muscle relaxants, opioids, or other drugs, people with back pain should first consider seeing a chiropractor or another non-drug-based healthcare provider.

Effectiveness of Chiropractic Care

Chiropractors are experts in this field, and when utilized to help reduce low back pain, the outcomes are impressive. According to the 2017 report “All Pain, No Gain: Shining a Light on Canada’s Back Pain and Opioid Crisis,” 90% of Canadians who have used a chiropractor to help with their muscle and joint pain believe it improved their overall quality of life more than any other method.
