Continued Minster Chiropractic Care Helps Back Pain Management

Regular Minster chiropractic care. A helpful idea? Yep! Consider other helpful regular care concepts: Endocrinologists recommend that diabetics regularly check their blood sugars. Dentists recommend regular teeth cleanings twice annually to keep plaque at bay. Cardiologists at the American Heart Association recommend exercising at least 150 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous aerobic physical activity a week to have an impact on heart health. Health experts recommend regular daily exercise for 150 minutes a week to maintain optimal health for the body.  Nutritionists recommend proper food intake daily: fruits, veggies, proteins, fats, etc., to feed the body properly. Spinal manipulation for back pain relief is recommended by the American College of Physicians, American Pain Society, and the American Medical Association. (1,2) Chiropractors recommend spinal manipulation treatments regularly, too, not necessarily every day once the pain is under control, but regularly to prevent spine pain – back pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain. Minster Chiropractic Center sees many Minster chiropractic patients on a regular basis, Minster chiropractic patients who choose such care to maintain healthy and pain-free spines as best they can.

BACK PAIN STATS

80% of us humans will experience no less than one episode of back pain in our lifetime. One in 3 of us experiences back pain this moment. Back pain is known to wax and wane not disappear for life. Minster Chiropractic Center often advises patients that the current episode of back pain is gaining your attention for a reason. If for no other reason, it is asking for care. It won’t be ignored. Your spine will appreciate a solid treatment plan to get rid of the pain as well as a plan to maintain its mobility and health.

CONTINUED CARE BENEFITS

That’s where regular chiropractic care comes into play. Surely our Minster chiropractic patients understand that chiropractic care relieves back pain and neck pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also know that they don’t want to suffer with that pain again! While there is no guarantee that back pain or neck pain won’t come back, keeping that pain at bay and/or keeping its return to as mild as possible is a worthy goal as is a goal to be able to do daily activities as pain free and worry free as possible. A recent study called the Nordic Maintenance Care Program reported that such chiropractic maintenance care reduced the number of days of bothersome pain that reduced activities and boosted the number of pain free weeks between episodes. These outcomes may well help patients and doctors realistically temper their expectations of care. Maintenance care is not a cure, does not stop new episodes necessarily, but it is a plan to decrease life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers with recurrent and persistent low back pain.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Joel Dixon  on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he describes how 20 years of maintenance care benefited his veteran patient contain his back pain so that he could live his life the way he wants to live it.
