BACK PAIN RELIEF RECOMMENDATIONS
Suggestions and recommendations run the gamut.
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center hears about them all the time. Everyone from
friends, family members, researchers, doctors, etc., have thoughts
and stories. In light of the variability of back
pain care recommendations, researchers propose that the standardization
of back pain care - exercise, spinal manipulation and
opioid prescriptions – that may benefit back pain sufferers
most. (1) We agree. We read
the research and mingle it with our
experience when developing a personalized treatment
plan for our back pain patients. With the expected growth of low
back pain through 2050 – from 619 million people globally
to more than 800 million (2) – effective, research-documented, non-drug,
non-surgical options for back pain are welcome, particularly
ones that are tried and verified as being beneficial. A recent
paper was just published regarding
the care for a specific type of back pain - continued back pain after
back surgery known as failed back surgery syndrome
(FBSS) - that often develops into continued or increased opioid
pain medication use. The study reported
that FBSS patients treated with Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression
Manipulation reported decreased or discontinued
use of opioids in the course
of an initial 3-month course of treatment. (3) That is an
encouraging outcome of a treatment approach to incorporate
into the standardized back pain treatment recommendations!
So what can our Manahawkin chiropractic patients do
to limit their back pain and its effect on their lives?
Sleep. Be active. Makes their appointments for spinal manipulation. Feedback from 2333 back pain
sufferers listed that more sleep, less sedentariness,
and increased moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity was
beneficial. The authors shared an example of how swapping 30
minutes of sedentary behavior for 30 minutes of sleep lessened
low back pain frequency odds by 5% and pain intensity by 2%. Sleep is important!
(4) So too is a visit to the Manahawkin chiropractor for spinal
manipulation as recommended in the guidelines published
by the American College of Physicians and The American Pain Society as having
good evidence of effectiveness for low back pain together with
exercise, CBT, and rehabilitation. (5) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is experienced in delivering
gentle, safe spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic protocols, designing
an easy exercise plan, and referring out for
therapy and/or more advance rehab as necessary or desired.
