Manahawkin Chiropractic Center Shares Your 2024 Goal of Relief of Back Pain

A new year. A new goal. We all set ourselves up for something new in a new year. For Manahawkin back pain patients, a decrease in back pain is a reasonable goal with Manahawkin Chiropractic Center by your side. Back pain sufferers are certainly not alone, and research keeps producing and publishing hopeful reports of what does work so that both the back pain sufferer and the chiropractor - and other concerned healthcare providers – provide the optimal attention for the optimal outcome: reduced back pain. Start 2024 off right with Manahawkin Chiropractic Center’s assistance for back pain relief! We have lots of effective chiropractic services


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. Trust us to help! Our Manahawkin back pain patients are in good hands.
