30 years of clinical practice as a chiropractor has taught me that one size does not fit all when it comes to back pain. There is no silver bullet. While some treatments may help some people, they don't work well for others, so it's very important to offer a targeted combination of approaches based on a thorough assessment and diagnosis.
It's no surprise that governments are focusing more attention on how to better support musculoskeletal (MSK) patients, considering that back pain is now the leading single cause of disability worldwide. Ontario chiropractors are playing a crucial role in the development of new models of care to help our province face these challenges.
