You experience a bout of back pain – first,
second, tenth. Are you curious about what that means going
forward? Certainly, you are! The trajectory – researchers’ term
for the path of back pain – of the Manahawkin back pain
experience is individual to each, but there are factors
that may help forecast that course. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center offers
some input on the influence of lifestyle and
WHAT TO DO – Chiropractic
A new article’s findings make seeking chiropractic care
logical to impact the course of back pain. Patients
who undergo chiropractic care for their chronic (over 3 months) and acute (under a month) low back pain who
reported “much better” or “better” at one week of care were 4 to 5 times more
likely to report improvement at 1 and 3 months of care.
Particularly, acute back pain patients who reported having
more severe pain and disability in the beginning of care
recovered more quickly. Most
patients with lumbar radicular leg pain bettered. Both acute
and chronic back pain patients reported good outcomes. (1)
Another study of the interdisciplinary care (spine
surgeons/chiropractors in a university hospital) of chronic back pain patients documented
that almost half of the chronic low back pain patients cared with
chiropractic conservative care reported clinically relevant improvement. (2) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center
sees even better outcomes with our particular form
of chiropractic care, Cox® Technic!
WHAT TO DO – More Chiropractic
A question arises: why stop chiropractic
care with pain relief? A study demonstrated that
low back pain patients who underwent chiropractic maintenance
care – chiropractic treatments on a regular basis unrelated to whether they
had symptoms – experienced fewer
days of low back pain that limited their activities of daily living contrasted
with getting treatment only when a new low back pain episode arose. (3) More Manahawkin
chiropractic care on a regular basis seems beneficial.
WHAT TO DO – More Activity
More is not always better, but some types of
more are better, like chiropractic and activity. A low back pain sufferer
with a lifetime history of back pain may want to consider engaging
in more moderate to vigorous physical activity since it
was found to lower the odds of extending
severe low back pain over the next year. (4) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center knows
none of us back pain sufferers enjoys hearing that,
but it’s the finding of one study. More intense exercise
was shown beneficial. Understand too that a sedentary lifestyle –
work and/or pleasure time – moderately increases the risk
of low back pain. (5) There is a middle ground! Let’s at
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center discover that with you, the spot that inhibits
back pain and keeps you active as you want to be.
