Lynchburg Back Pain Relief Includes Self-Management

“Just give me something to stop the pain.” or “Just do something so I stop hurting.” are just two comments Palmer Chiropractic Center and fellow back pain healthcare practitioners commonly hear. When in pain, we all just want it to stop in the least effort required and fastest way possible. This isn’t always possible though. We all need to look at our pain and make friends with it to some extent. We have to see it for what it is. Temporary. Unwelcome. Disruptive. But manageable many times when engaged. Palmer Chiropractic Center encourages our Lynchburg back pain patients and neck pain patients to participate in their back pain relief process. It can make a difference. It may well alter your life for the better. Many Lynchburg chiropractic patients have experienced this.

SELF-MANAGEMENT BENEFITS

Remarkably up to 25% of back pain patients in a new study were not actively engaged in their spine care treatment plan. Research is filled with papers highlighting the significance of patient-involvement in treatment of spine pain. What kept such patients involved? In researcher-ease, environmental context and resources, emotion, memory/attention/decision-making, and behavioural regulation did. Knowing that these things were the interfering culprits that interfered with patients’ participation in their own care, researchers created a distinctive plan to address these issues and raise the patients’ understanding and participation via text reminders, exercises, lifestyle changes, webinars, videos, paper educational materials and more. (1) One study discovered that a variety of approaches to reduce disability and work absenteeism was cost effective though no one particular intervention stood out over others. (2) Like these researchers, Palmer Chiropractic Center tries to do whatever it takes to help our Lynchburg back pain and neck pain patients!

SPINE EXERCISES AND EMS

This may be a unique helpful intervention for certain patients: whole-body electromyostimulation. It decreased nonspecific chronic low back pain equally as well as back-strengthening exercise protocols. When fear of movement and functional limitations because of back pain are a part of the problem, whole body electrical stimulation helped fearful patients with their strength and stabilization in a timely fashion, reducing pain intensity and improving trunk flexors. (3) Palmer Chiropractic Center shares such options to help our patients.

SELF-MANAGEMENT APP

Have you heard “There’s an app for that!”? Palmer Chiropractic Center is sure you have! Not alarming in today’s app-crazy world that there is an app in the works to help you keep track of self-management tasks like exercise, sleep, etc. For the “selfBACK” app, researchers are currently gathering data on the effectiveness of various interventions at various times for nonspecific low back pain. From this data collection, researchers will fill the app with tips and exercises that have benefited others experiencing similar issues. Each patient’s app will then be tailored for self-management of back pain and other musculoskeletal issues based upon others with similar conditions found helpful and relieving. (4) Palmer Chiropractic Center looks forward to saying “There's an app for that!" Palmer Chiropractic Center knows that some of our Lynchburg back pain patients will love this!
