Get back on track with the low back pain program

Low back pain is the most common work-related disorder in North America and the number one cause of disability in the world. It is also a major cause of workplace absenteeism. Around 85% of the population will experience back pain at least once in their lifetime.

The benefits of a multimodal approach

There is no miracle cure for low back pain because there are many factors to consider. A multimodal approach seems to be the most effective way to reduce recovery time and get people back up on their feet as quickly as possible. Moreover, when chiropractors are integrated within community health centres, they can play a crucial role in managing low back pain by providing the best possible treatment to patients which helps them recover more quickly.

When chiropractors work in CHCs, it also affects the decision-making of primary care providers. When faced with complex cases, they can seek advice from the chiropractor, which leads to fewer tests and/or referrals to specialists. It is becoming increasingly clear that combining exercise, education and going back to work as soon as possible (or remaining at work) is the best approach.

Getting people back up on their feet with low back pain program

The Centre de santé communautaire de l’Estrie’s low back pain program is provided throughout the counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry. It celebrated its fifth year in April 2020. To date, 919 patients have been seen and 12,291 treatments have been given.

Making a low back pain program available to more people is one way to help get them back on track faster and at a lower cost than the average approach. This means a lot to patients who are unable to maintain their normal activities. It also helps ease financial stress and emotional distress thereby lessening the impact these have on the whole family.
