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 right now. Back pain comes and goes, not typically disappearing forever, depending on activities.
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. (3) For these Minster back
pain patients, Minster Chiropractic Center is here.
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.
