Many of our patients have reported that they have been taking paracetamol for their back pain, and it has not helped.  A report this month in the British Medical Journal has endorsed what we have known for years, and it is good that now that is being acknowledged by the wider scientific community.  26 million people in this country suffer from back pain every year (nearly half the population!) and the treatment they have been using is ineffectual.  Chiropractors have for years been encouraging their patients to get and keep active, and that is now the current recommendation, but if your back hurts how do you get active?  That is where we come in.  Our gentle adjustments release spinal and pelvic joints, increasing flexibility and reducing pain. Exercise then becomes possible and more comfortable and the vicious cycle is broken.  Call us in Bradford on Avon on 01225 862140 or Devizes on 01380 729103 and we can help you ‘feel the difference’.
