Low back pain is one of the leading causes for a work injury claim in Surrey and Delta BC. In fact, just over 25% of all WorkSafeBC claims are for back strains. It is also a BC statistic that 60%-90% of the population will experience low back pain in their lifetime. At Legacies Sports Massage & Chiropractic, we want you to know some interesting facts that will help you the next time you injure your back. We also have a special “Lifting Ergonomics” handout at the end of this article…
Did you know:
- Aging of the back begins before 30 for most people.
- Smokers are more likely to get back pain.
- If you’ve had a previous back injury, you are more likely to reinjure.
- More than 90% of low back pain has no specific cause.
Lets face it – a low back injury is painful. But how you handle that pain is crucial. Studies show that activity more than rest will help your injury recover faster. Try to keep moving. Aches and pains can linger even after you have returned to work. Gradually return to your normal activities as you recover. Seek the expert advice of your physician, massage therapist, or chiropractor to help control pain, speed recovery, and guide you to a full recovery.

How important is it to follow my massage therapist or chiropractor’s treatment plan? Simple: do you want to get better as soon as possible and at the lowest cost? Because that’s what the goal of your treatment plan is all about!
At Legacies Sports Massage & Chiropractic, we’re all about getting results – its what we’re known for and is likely why you were referred to our clinic. So that means outlining a specific Treatment Plan (like a road-map to recovery) for each of our patients. This is specific to you – based on your assessment – to ensure you get better as soon as possible. Sooner means cheaper, right? You bet it does! Without a clear Treatment Plan (or if you don’t follow your practitioner’s advice), you will find that it is “pain” that keeps bringing you back to the clinic – and that is often too late. You may find you get into a chronic cycle, and never fully recover if this is the case. So what’s our advice? Follow our advice! Do your part, and we’ll do ours – and the results will be amazing!
If you are unclear about your Treatment Plan that your practitioner has designed for you, please just ask. ** Did you know that Legacies Sports Massage & Chiropractic is one of the only clinics in Surrey & Delta that gives written Treatment Plan slips to our patients, and sends a Patient Progress Report to all referring doctors? We’re proud to be your choice – thank-you!
