Chiropractic Awareness Week


This week we are ceclebrating all things Chiropractic, while also raising awareness of the problems faced by the modern world when it comes to back pain.  The British Chiropractic Association have released several articles recently detailing the level of impact low back pain in particular is having on our economy.  It's a well established fact that low back pain is one of the leading causes of long-term sick leave in the work place, costing literally millions in terms of lost work hours and benefits paid out to those unable to work.

If we're being honest, it's also pretty well recognised that the NHS is ill-equipped to handle this problem.  Between the waiting times, the limited range of treatment options and the underfunding of the whole system, a lot of people don't even bother going to their GP in the first place, attempting instead to self-manage with over-the-counter medication and a whole range of fads, tips and tricks that Dr. Google provides them with.

Of course, this should be where Chiropractic comes in to its own.  We can effectively treat so many conditions which cause pain, and yet as a profession we are underused.  Sometimes, those who would benefit most are wary of trying any form of treatment not available on the NHS.  Sometimes they are concerned about the financial aspect of self-funded treatment.  But for many it's simply a case that they don't realise Chiropractic is there to help them.  

So here's my call to action for this Chiropractic Awareness Week: let's make sure that those we see on a day-to-day basis, whether friends, family, or the person next to you in the queue at the coffee shop, are AWARE that Chiropractic is readily available, effective and could be the answer to their pain-riddled prayers!
