Regular St. Francisville chiropractic care. A helpful
idea? Yep! Consider other good regular care concepts: Endocrinologists
recommend that diabetics regularly check their blood sugars.
Dentists recommend regular teeth cleanings twice annually to keep plaque away. Cardiologists at the American Heart
Association recommend exercising at least 150 minutes of
moderate-to-vigorous aerobic physical activity a week to make
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 a good diet daily: fruits,
veggies, proteins, fats, etc., to nourish 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 daily once the pain is under control, but on a
regular schedule to prevent spine pain – back
pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville cares for
many St. Francisville chiropractic patients on a regular basis, St. Francisville
chiropractic patients who choose such care to keep their spines as healthy and pain-free as possible.
BACK PAIN STATS
80% of us humans will have no less than one episode of back pain in our lifetime. One in 3 of
us has back pain this moment. Back pain is
known to come and go not go away forever.
Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville often advises patients that the existing
episode of back pain is getting your attention for a reason. If
for no other reason, it is begging for care. It will not
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 is where regular chiropractic care comes
into play. Certainly our St. Francisville chiropractic patients know
that chiropractic care alleviates back pain and neck
pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also understand
that they don’t want to suffer with that pain again!
While there is no assurance that back pain or neck pain won’t come back, preventing pain and/or its return to as mild as possible is a worthy
goal as is a goal to be able to do everyday activities as pain free
and worry free as possible. A new study called the Nordic
Maintenance Care Program found that such chiropractic maintenance
care decreased the number of days of bothersome pain that restrained
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, doesn’t prevent
new episodes necessarily, but it’s a plan to decrease
life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers with
recurrent and persistent low back pain. (3) For these St. Francisville back
pain patients, Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is here.
Listen to this PODCAST
with Dr. Joel Dixon on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael
Johnson as he shares how 20 years of maintenance care benefited
his veteran patient contain his back pain so that he could do what he wanted in his life.
