Continued Lynchburg Chiropractic Care Benefits Back Pain Management

Regular Lynchburg chiropractic care. A good idea? Yep! Consider other good regular care concepts: Endocrinologists recommend that diabetics regularly monitor their blood sugars. Dentists recommend regular teeth cleanings a couple times a year to keep plaque at bay. Cardiologists at the American Heart Association recommend doing at least 150 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous aerobic physical activity each week to have an impact on heart health. Health experts recommend regular daily exercise for 150 minutes a week to keep the body in tune.  Nutritionists recommend proper food intake daily: 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. Palmer Chiropractic Center sees many Lynchburg chiropractic patients on a regular basis, Lynchburg 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 has back pain right now. Back pain comes and goes, not typically disappearing forever, depending on activities. Palmer Chiropractic Center often advises patients that the existing episode of back pain is gaining your attention for a reason. If for no other reason, it is asking for care. It won’t be disregarded. Your spine will welcome a solid treatment plan to get rid of the pain as well as a plan to maintain its mobility and health.

CONTINUED CARE BENEFITS

That’s where regular chiropractic care comes into play. Surely our Lynchburg chiropractic patients understand that chiropractic care relieves back pain and neck pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also know that they don’t want to suffer with such pain again! While there is no assurance that back pain or neck pain will not come back, preventing pain and/or 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 found that such chiropractic maintenance care reduced the number of days of bothersome pain that limited activities and increased the number of pain free weeks between episodes. These outcomes may well facilitate patients’ and doctors’ realistically temper their expectations of care. Maintenance care is not a cure, doesn’t stop new episodes necessarily, but it is a plan to decrease life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers who have recurrent and persistent low back pain.

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 control his back pain so that he could live his life the way he wants to live it.
