GSE Health in Drouin

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - LOCAL LIVING -

Whether at work or play, the worst thing we want is to suf­fer un­nec­es­sary pain and dis­com­fort. Look­ing af­ter these bod­ily aches sooner is vi­tal to avoid chronic de­bil­i­ta­tion in the fu­ture. More than 30% of Aus­tralians suf­fer from mus­cu­lar and joint pain with over a third be­ing back pain. Re­gard­ing this, re­search shows man­ual ther­apy or “hands-on care” ranked more highly com­pared to med­i­ca­tion yet back pain re­mains the 9th most com­mon com­plaint at a gen­eral prac­ti­tioner’s of­fice. With this con­sid­ered, there has been in­creas­ing sup­port for al­lied health pro­fes­sion­als such as chi­ro­prac­tors and os­teopaths to help ease the eco­nomic bur­den of mus­cu­loskele­tal in­jury.

Con­tribut­ing to the preva­lence of mus­cu­lar aches is the obe­sity epi­demic greatly due to the over­abun­dance of high su­gar and sat­u­rated fatty foods. It is not un­com­mon to find nu­tri­tion­ists work­ing along­side man­ual ther­apy prac­ti­tion­ers to treat con­di­tions like arthri­tis. Thomas Edi­son once said, “The doc­tor of the fu­ture will give no medicine, but will in­ter­est her or his pa­tients in the care of the hu­man frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and pre­ven­tion of dis­ease.” The break­throughs of mod­ern medicine has made us believe in magic; how­ever when main­tain­ing the mus­cu­loskele­tal sys­tem the best form of healthcare is to eat well, sleep well and move well.

The GSE Health team is ex­cited to serve the Drouin com­mu­nity with chi­ro­prac­tic, os­teopa­thy, re­me­dial mas­sage and nu­tri­tional ser­vices mak­ing it a truly holis­tic place to achieve your health goals.
