As we have discussed in our previous blog posts, Musculoskeletal conditions are very common, affecting 30% (6.9 million) of all Australians including 3.7 million people with back problems. In some cases, these are difficult to avoid (such as an accident or injury) however, everyday habits can be a big determining factor in how well our spines handle stress.

During Spinal Health Week 2018, Dr Matthew is encouraging all our wonderful patients to be mindful and make changes to those everyday habits that can be harmful to the health of our spines. We can all make small changes toward better health.









Dr Matthew always recommends being proactive and making changes before any long term damage occurs, simply being more mindful of your posture during daily activities can make a huge difference to your health. Taking regular breaks is also encourage particularly if you sit at a computer all day. Also if you have a long commute to work, or spend your day in the car, incorporating regular stretching into your routine can help to keep you mobile.

Other preventative measures can include regular chiropractic care. If you are experiencing pain, it is advisable to not ignore this warning sign, coming into our Geelong chiropractor clinic can ensure that you receive early intervention care. This will help to prevent more the condition worsening and will help reduce recovery time.

Chiropractic care is a drug free natural alternative to medication or surgery. Chiropractic care focuses on the relationship between the spine and nervous system with a core focus on musculoskeletal health.  Using Chiropractic care Dr Matthew can care for a variety of conditions such as headaches, back pain and neck pain. By using non-surgical techniques and encouraging patients to make lifestyle changes, Dr Matthew can help restore and maintain normal spinal function for all our patients.
