Consider a Chiro
Has back pain, neck pain or headaches stopped you from doing the things you love?
As part of the Australian Chiropractors Association’s new ‘Consider a Chiro’ campaign, we at Eir Family Chiropractic & Wellness are asking Australians to consider a chiropractor when it comes to ailments such as back pain, neck pain and headaches.
Unfortunately, these spinal health issues are not isolated and impact many Australians every day. Did you know:
- 4 million Australians suffer from back problems; 1
- 50% of people will experience neck pain at some point in their lives; 2 and
- migraines affect 4.9 million Australians. 3
These health issues can also greatly impact your quality of life by making simple, everyday activities difficult to complete. With back pain, neck pain and headaches being so common, most people think they are a normal part of life.
It is important that Australians understand all their options when it comes to caring for their health and wellbeing. The good news is that chiropractic may offer you a drug free alternative to not only help prevent and alleviate pain, but to promote a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle.
This Spinal Health Week fell on August 17-23. Sadly due to lockdown, we were unable to participate in the Consider a Chiro Campaign. With the easing of restrictions, now is a perfect time to make an appointment with us to see how we may help if you suffer from pain. You can also visit considerachiro.org.au for more information on the Consider a Chiro campaign.
Contact Dr Miriam Kendall to book an appointment today.

Does neck pain stop you from being your best self?
Between looking at screens all day, to mobile phones and even sleeping, our necks are in all kinds of positions day in, day out. For instance, Australians on average spend 10 hours and 24 minutes engaging with internet connected devices everyday. (1)
If you suffer from neck pain, you're not alone. Up to 50% of people will experience neck pain at some point in their life (2) and general practitioners are consulted seven times per week for neck pain. (3)
If you're looking for an alternative to treating neck pain, why not consider visiting a chiropractor? Chiropractors work in partnership with their patients to provide appropriate, tailored care as well as provide lifestyle advice to help prevent reoccurrence.
Ever had a headache that stopped you from doing the things you love?
Most headaches have more than one contributing cause. They may be due to dehydration, stress, desk work, bad pillows and much more. They can also take the form of migraines, which affect 4.9 million Australians (1) and greatly impact their quality of life.
Because headaches are so common, most people think getting a headache is a normal part of life. Although it may be easy to take certain medication to mask the pain, if you're a constant sufferer it could be time to try something new.
Why not consider a chiropractor to help manage your headaches? Chiropractors use specific, gentle spinal adjustments to help alleviate headaches and can also provide lifestyle advice on helping to prevent their reoccurrence.
Did you know that an estimated 4 million Australians have back problems?
90% of people will experience back pain at some point in their lives (2), so chances are you or someone you know will suffer from this one day.
Several factors can contribute to low back pain, including poor posture, excessive sitting, lack of exercise, using incorrect lifting techniques and much more. Taking care of your spinal health allows you to participate in the healthiest life possible, both physically and mentally.
The good news is that chiropractic may offer you a drug free alternative to not only help prevent and alleviate pain but to promote a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle.
