The Value of Manahawkin Healthy Living

Healthy living. How do you describe that? Do you embrace it? What are healthy living behaviors? Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is all about healthy living. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! Manahawkin chiropractic patients can trust their Manahawkin chiropractor to be an escort to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only assist them cope 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 prevented.


What are some healthy behaviors? A good diet. Exercise. Not smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those sound about right, don’t they? A recent study described that men who abided by more of these healthy choices had decreased risk of long lasting low back pain and women for neck pain. (1) Consuming fruit and vegetables is an additional positive healthy behavior. This in addition to the other behaviors are shown to lessen the risk of having long term troubling 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) Using a lumbar support belt improves postural control when standing on unlevel ground.  This may be especially helpful for patients with non-specific low back pain as they are predisposed to be more unsteady. (4) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center works with our Manahawkin back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.


Choice of care for health care issues generates 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 sought care from 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 familiarity with the doctor’s treatment, social network recommendations, geographical proximity, and doctor’s qualifications prompted their choice.
