Beating back woes

A person holds their hands on their back

A demanding career

As an officer on the beat, your job is active to say the least.

Sure, you might get some down time, completing office tasks, but the majority of your days are spent out fighting the good fight. 

You break up fights. You bend down to speak to drivers in cars. You stretch, searching for intruders.

No two days are ever the same when you're on duty.

Prioritise your back health 

Traumatic events, falling over, repetitive stress, and poor posture can cause back issues.

Chiropractors manipulate your backbone and muscles to bring back mobility to joints.

This treatment is beneficial as a treatment of pain from misalignment and dislocation with bone joints as well as muscles and connective tissue, such as cartilage, ligaments, and tendons.

A lot of us don’t know how much our backs play a part in our overall health.

How can chiropractors help?

Chiropractic support can help improve neck pain, ongoing headaches, lower back pain, neurological conditions, and blood pressure.

We should also touch on the importance of good posture, which can be hard for officers to maintain.

Do what you can to prevent slouching or having your head down for long periods of time.

The ‘forward head position’ causes a lot of extra strain on your neck, which affects your back.

A chiropractor will observe and evaluate your posture, as well as guide you with strategies to prevent ongoing pain.

It’s about developing healthy habits, just like most parts of your health.

If you’re suffering from a sore back, neck or shoulders, a chiropractor will be back to put your back on track.

Never forget the importance of spine health, especially for us in the force.
