GSE Health in Drouin
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.
