Regular Manahawkin chiropractic care. A good
idea? Yes! Consider other helpful regular care concepts: Endocrinologists
recommend that diabetics regularly check their blood sugars.
Dentists recommend regular teeth cleanings twice a
year 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 30
minutes a day five days a week to keep the body in tune. Nutritionists
recommend proper food intake a day: fruits,
veggies, proteins, fats, etc., to nourish the body well.
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. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center treats
many Manahawkin chiropractic patients on a regular basis, Manahawkin
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 experience at
least one episode of back pain in our lifetime. One in 3 of
us experiences back pain this moment. Back pain comes and goes, not typically disappearing forever, depending on activities.
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center often informs patients that the existing
episode of back pain is getting your attention for a reason. If
for no other reason, it is asking for care. It will not
be ignored. Your spine will be grateful for
a solid treatment plan to end 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. Surely our Manahawkin chiropractic patients understand
that chiropractic care relieves 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 will
not come back, keeping that pain
at bay and/or keeping its return to as mild as possible is a worthy
goal as is a goal to be able to do daily activities as pain free
and worry free as possible. A recent study called the Nordic
Maintenance Care Program reported that such chiropractic maintenance
care reduced the number of days of bothersome pain that reduced
activities and increased 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 is a plan to reduce
life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers who have
recurrent and persistent low back pain. (3) For these Manahawkin back
pain patients, Manahawkin Chiropractic Center 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 helped
his veteran patient contain his back pain so that he could do what he wanted in his life.
