Can Chiropractic care help with Low Back Pain?


Acute and chronic low back pain with or without sciatica are common presentations to Chiropractic care in Australia. Recently updated guidelines have suggested that sufferers need to be screened for poorer outcomes or less likely to recover quickly, self-management is important for all sufferers and a combination of manual therapy and psychological therapy should be incorporated. 

Chiropractic care is equipped to effectively see and manage low back pain with or without sciatica. Chiropractors have undergone five years of education and training to diagnose, treat and manage low back pain with or without sciatica
