Continued St. Francisville Chiropractic Care Helps Back Pain Management

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 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.
