back pain is a reasonable goal with Minster Chiropractic Center

to produce and share hopeful reports of what does work so that
both the back pain sufferer and the chiropractor - as well as other treating
healthcare providers – deliver the optimal care
for the optimal outcome: less back pain. Start 2024 off right with
Minster Chiropractic Center’s assistance for back pain relief! We have lots of effective chiropractic services.
BACK PAIN RELIEF RECOMMENDATIONS
They run the gamut.
Minster Chiropractic Center knows. Everyone from
friends, family members, researchers, doctors, others, have thoughts
and stories. In light of the inconsistency of back
pain care recommendations, researchers propose that the standardization
of care for back pain - exercise, spinal manipulation and
opioid prescriptions – that may benefit back pain sufferers
most. (1) We concur. We examin
the research and mingle it with our clinical experience to develop a personalized treatment
plan for our back pain patients. With the predicted growth of low
back pain through 2050 – from 619 million people globally
to more than 800 million (2) – effective, research-documented, non-drug,
non-surgical choices for back pain are welcome, particularly
ones that are tested and documented to be beneficial. A new
paper was just published regarding
the care for one type of back pain - continued back pain after
back surgery also called failed back surgery syndrome
(FBSS) - that often results in continued or increased opioid
pain medication use. The study reported
that FBSS patients treated with Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression
Manipulation described decreased or discontinued
use of opioids in the course
of an initial 3-month course of treatment. (3) That is a positive outcome of a treatment approach to incorporate
into the standardized back pain treatment recommendations!
So what can our Minster chiropractic patients do
to control their back pain and its effect on their lives?
Sleep. Keep active. Get to
their appointments for spinal manipulation. Feedback from 2333 back pain
sufferers listed that additional sleep, less sedentariness,
and increased moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity was
beneficial. The authors shared an example of how swapping 30
minutes of sedentary behavior for 30 minutes of sleep reduced
low back pain frequency odds by 5% and pain intensity by 2%. Sleep is important!
(4) So too is a visit to the Minster chiropractor for spinal
manipulation as recommended in the guidelines published
by the American College of Physicians and The American Pain Society as having
good evidence of effectiveness for low back pain together with
exercise, CBT, and rehabilitation. (5) Minster Chiropractic Center is experienced in providing
gentle, safe spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic protocols, designing
an easy exercise plan, and recommending
therapy and/or more advance rehab as necessary or desired.
Trust us to help! Our Minster back pain patients are in good hands.
