Lower Back Pain - Years of Discomfort

Family flying kite on beach

As a chiropractor there is not a week that goes by where we don’t receive a telephone call from a new client asking for help with ‘Lower Back Pain’ (LBP).

Chiropractors are famous for being able to assist clients with lower back pain and so this is not surprising. What continually astounds me is that some of these clients have experienced LBP for years.

In one case recently the client had experienced pain since she gave birth to her twin daughters over 7 years previously. She had experienced discomfort and ‘disability’ for all that time.

I have tried to discover why people continue to suffer with conditions that can often be helped with chiropractic care.

Here is what I have found. The top reasons (in no particular order) are:

1. No one invited me. Most of us will make use of a recommendation and follow a suggestion when we know someone who has had a good experience. Many people don’t ask for help because they don’t know to ask. It is our job to tell them.

2. I was told that nothing could be done. Many different professionals consult with clients about back pain. If they are unable to help they often tell the client that nothing can be done. Chiropractors have a unique knowledge of the spine, its surrounding tissues and how to restore the healing potential of the body. Many clients who consult us tell us that they have tried something unsuccessfully before. Chiropractors can help you heal because of our unique focus on improving your body’s ability to heal.

3. I didn’t get around to it. This is usually a man’s excuse. This is strange as quite often their complaint prevents them from performing well, alters moods, psychological outlook, creativity, social function, immune system and other factors. It is very common for us to hear that they have been encouraged (made) to come by a caring family member (wife).

4. I am used to being self reliant. In some ways this is my favourite excuse. If there was a problem with the car, it might be concluded that we would need an expert to help resolve the issue. We would book the car into the garage and know that a trained expert was on the case. This should be the same with our bodies, but as they are very personal to us some people avoid seeking care.

Whatever the reason, book a consultation with Inspired Chiropractic today and solve the problem.
