The Value of St. Francisville Healthy Living

Healthy living. How do you envision that? Do you embrace it? Do you know what behaviors are healthy? Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is all for healthy living. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! St. Francisville chiropractic patients can expect their St. Francisville chiropractor to be an escort to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only help them deal with exisiting spine pain issues but also ward off future bouts of spine pain, neck pain, and back pain, and other health issues that are best avoided.


What are some healthy behaviors? A good diet. Exercise. Non-smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those make sense, do they not? A recent study described that men who abided by more of these healthy choices had decreased risk of long duration low back pain and women for neck pain. (1) Consuming fruit and vegetables is another advantageous healthy behavior. This plus the other behaviors are shown to decrease the possibility of having long term disturbing low back pain in women and even potentially improve the prognosis of low back pain relief. (2) Participating in a community based musculoskeletal physiotherapy program enhances the health-related quality of life for patients. (3) Utilizing a lumbar support belt improves postural control when standing on unlevel ground.  This may be notably welcomed by34 patients with non-specific low back pain as they are prone to be more unstable. (4) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville works with our St. Francisville back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.


Choice of care for health care issues results in more healthy behaviors. When patients are able to choose their provider for back pain or neck pain relief (in one study: physical therapy care), costs were lower than if they went to their medical doctor first and were referred. Direct access makes a difference in costs and outcomes. (5) A study of women and their choices of providers for back pain relief shows that their knowledge of the doctor’s treatment, social network recommendations, how close they were to the doctor’s office, and doctor’s qualifications motivated their choice.
