Take the Back Pain Quiz!

Dr. Shima Shahidy, (Hon) B.Sc., DC
Chiropractor & Graston Technique Provider

dr shima shahidyAlthough chiropractors treat the entire body, we certainly see a very high percentage of patients whose main complaint is back pain. FACT: 80 percent of Canadians will suffer from back pain in their lifetimes. There are many things you can do to maintain a healthy spine and prevent muscle and joint injuries. Take this quiz to see if anything's holding you back!

1. Do you experience recurring back pain that comes and goes every month or so?

2. Do you experience daily or weekly back pain?

3. Do you miss out on sports or physical activities as a result of back pain?

4. Do you believe there is no effective treatment for back pain?

5. Are you concerned that treatment for back pain may not be covered by your health plan?

6. Have you taken pain relievers for more than three days in a row to treat back pain?

7. Are you worried about what a diagnosis might mean if you visit a healthcare professional?

8. Do you hope your back pain will go away on its own?

9. Are you too busy to seek treatment for your back pain?

10. Do you just "tough it out" when you experience back pain?

If you answered "yes" to four or more of the questions or "yes" to questions 9 or 10, you are probably avoiding dealing with back pain that is limiting your life. Back pain can be treated. Stop holding back and talk to a health professional for a comprehensive assessment, diagnosis and treatment advice.

Remember that back pain does not only affect adults. Most school-aged children carry backpacks regularly, often loaded with heavy books and other items that can add up to a substantial amount of weight. Research shows that a child may carry up to 22% of their weight in their backpacks! 40% of children report lower back pain often attributed to carrying a backpack. It’s important to take time to choose a well designed pack for your child or teenager, pay attention to their posture or complaints of pain and have regular checkups with your health care professional.
