Don't let pain prevent you from doing what you love!

Updated: Aug 10

Nearly everyone suffers from back pain at some point. Neck and back pain, whether chronic or acute can often be quite debilitating. Quite an amount of people experience pain when participating or engaging in a certain daily activity which require movement in a certain way as easy as bending their lower back forwards to pick up something from the floor to being very active in sports.



Others have to stop or postpone it completely to things they love because the pain and disability have affected their daily life routine. We should not just justify body problems with pain only. Other discomfort such as numbness, weakness, stiffness, distress and etc. All these are clear indicators that there is an underlying issue and chiropractic can help!


Put a Stop To Pain and Discomfort




A few reviews of research found that chiropractic care is an effective, gentle and non-invasive treatment for both acute and chronic pain. Chiropractic spinal manipulation and mobilization help relieve pain and improve function in people with acute or chronic neck pain.


However, manipulation may be more effective than mobilization for specific clinical indications. Chiropractic manipulation together with patients engage in stretching, flexibility and strengthening exercises provides a better outcome. [1] At BP Chiropractic, our Chiropractors focus on determining the root cause of your conditions so that we can help you to solve your problems and increased health and wellness.

Combined chiropractic interventions slightly improved pain and disability in the short-term pain in the medium-term for acute and subacute low back pain. [4]



Chiropractic management of low back pain and low back related leg complaints showed the uses of exercise in conjunction with manipulation is likely to speed and improve outcomes as well as minimize episodic recurrence. [5]
