Back Pain Treatment in Brookvale & Riverview

Back pain is one of the most common ailments of patients and will affect eight out ten of us at some time in our lives. It is therefore not surprising that this is one of the conditions most frequently treated by Dr. Rachael Veronesi, Chiropractor.

Most people think of Chiropractic as spinal manipulation and while this is a very important part of the Chiropractic care, it is definitely not the full picture. Chiropractic helps to relieve pain through realignment and stimulating the body’s own natural healing.

An initial visit to the NeuroBalance Chiropractic clinic will consist of a detailed evaluation enabling a care plan specifically tailored to your needs, to be developed. A course of Chiropractic care followed by ‘maintenance visits’ is likely to be required for effective, long-term results. This care plan may be supplemented by advice on:

  • gentle stretching exercises
  • improving posture
  • safe lifting practices
  • exercises to strengthen back and tummy muscles to increase core body strength

If you are suffering back pain, the first step on your road to recovery is to make an appointment by calling us on 02 8039 6700 today.

Chiropractic Could Be a Better Choice For Your Health

Back pain can be debilitating, keep you from enjoying life and cause you to take time off work. Although over the counter pain killers can help, they are not a long-term solution. Some prescription medications for pain, such as muscle relaxants, can cause drowsiness – so you may not be able to drive or operate machinery while taking them. Other medications must be carefully managed, as they may cause dependency and can worsen pain in some instances.
Chiropractic care, by contrast, offers a drug free alternative and statistics prove that for many people, this method of care is more effective, preventing more patients from developing long term, chronic back pain problems as well as alleviating pain and getting people mobile more quickly reducing time off work. (Statistics from a report in the Chiropractic Journal of Australia).

Why Do So Many People Choose Chiropractic?

According to the website of the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia, more than 215,000 people visit a Chiropractor in Australia every week. (Figures from the results of a 2004-2005 Australian Bureau of Statistics National Health Survey). All Chiropractors must undergo a rigorous, five-year course at University before they can work as a Chiropractor in Australia and all are Government regulated and registered.

Doctors of Chiropractic like Dr. Rachael Veronesi offer their patients a safe, drug-free and holistic approach to their pain. The rigorous assessment in your initial consultation will result either in an agreed course of Chiropractic care, or a referral to another healthcare practitioner if care by a Chiropractor is not appropriate in your case. Like visiting the Dentist to keep your teeth in good condition, care from a Chiropractor is an ongoing process with regular, maintenance check-ups once the initial problem has been resolved.
