Guidelines. There are guidelines for everything!
This post discusses some of the newer
guidelines for interprofessional teamwork between chiropractors and other
healthcare providers to enhance the healing of Minster back
pain and neck pain sufferers. Exercises are a core part of back
pain prevention alongside management that all providers support
and all providers worry aren’t
always completed. Chiropractors like your own
at Minster Chiropractic Center are health promoters and work to do that in the nicest,
most supportive way! We can work
together to get you better.
GUIDELINES FOR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
Everything in healthcare is about quality. Providers and
patients desire the best quality care possible in
delivering care and getting care. Interprofessional
collaboration is on the top of the list when researchers
evaluate systems for the care of back pain like appropriate
use of screening and preventive services. (1) Researchers have also put
together 70 quality indicators for chiropractic
delivery that are standardized as well as evidence-based that take
into consideration patient concerns and enhanced
clinical outcomes. (2) Physical activity certainly is a component
of a quality chiropractic healthcare plan for Minster pain relief.
BENEFITS OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY FOR BACK PAIN AND NECK PAIN
In a recent survey, chiropractors conveyed
that the biggest concern they held in treating back
pain patients was patient follow through (coming to appointments, doing exercises, following at-home
instructions, etc.). (3) In another survey, 90% of chiropractors reported
that they had a positive opinion about healthier patient
lifestyles. These chiropractors also reported that they were actively
involved in promoting physical activity, recommending
exercises to patients for their particular condition, inquiring
how the exercises are going, and advising patients in the
proper way to do exercises as well as value of doing
exercises. (4) One way that patients seem
to respond more positively and be more willing to do
physical activity is using a mobile app. Such
apps help handle low back and neck pain patients when they
are built around reported pain, pain intensity, and structure of the app like audio
explanation and animation of each exercise. (5) Doing the right exercises in the right way is the most effective.
ADD IN SOME DIAPHRAGMATIC BREATHING!
Core stabilization exercises are commonly
recommended to back pain patients. One new study that incorporated diaphragmatic breathing exercises noted many advantages
for chronic low back pain patients: improved muscle activity, chest
expansion, quality of sleep, improved disability and physical activity
and pain scores, less fear avoidance, and increased
physical activity, among others. (6) As a part of
your healthcare team, your chiropractor at Minster Chiropractic Center feels a duty
to promote physical activity so that you can manage your own
health a bit more. Our younger back pain and neck pain sufferers benefit.
Our older adults with aches and pains and/or Minster back
pain and/or neck pain benefit, too!
