These days, people tend to experience disabling low back pain, neck pain, and headaches more and more, which decreases their ability to work and engage in an active healthy life.
Reasons include a sedentary lifestyle which may impact negatively on your posture and general fitness.
It’s not surprising when we think about it. We spend many hours we spend each day sitting at work or school, on a computer or other mobile device, watching television or playing computer games.
Poor posture places undue pressure on your spine which may lead to pain.
Low back pain is a growing problem and now ranks second in Australasia and seventh in the world according to the WHO’s latest Global Burden of Disease study.
Neck pain is also problematic ranking ninth in Australasia and 21st in the world.
Dr. Andrew Arnold and Cranbourne Family Chiropractic and Wellness Centre, recommend Chiropractic care focusing on the relationship between body structure and its coordinated function and how this relationship can restore and maintain health.
Chiropractic care is effective treatment without the need for drugs or surgery.
So maintaining normal spinal function may help reduce the risk of unwanted injury or pain.

About the Author:
I have been living in Melbourne with my family since 2004. I was a mechanical engineer previously, for 9 years in South Korea before becoming a Chiropractor. Although the structural analysis of mechanical parts is a totally different field from chiropractic, there are also similar principles, namely, examining, planning, constructing and managing the hardware and software for optimal functioning. Posture under different conditions likewise shapes our body’s structure and should, therefore, be well maintained. My primary goal for my patients is getting them out of pain. I use various treatment approaches like adjustments, mobilization, and soft tissue techniques, to allow optimal stability and function.
