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. (3) For these Lynchburg back
pain patients, Palmer Chiropractic Center is here.
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.
