"Why do I need continued chiropractic
treatments for my back pain? Why can't you, my Pensacola chiropractor,
just treat it and end the pain forever?"
This is not a bizarre
question, and it's also very
perceptive. The answer is logically
simple, too, though two-fold: we are born with spine-pain
issues or we develop them.
BORN-WITH-IT BACK PAIN
Some of us are born with spinal
conditions that will
be with us forever. Such conditions as spondylolisthesis, transitional vertebrae, fused vertebrae, and spinal curvatures are unique to one's
own spine. There is no route to "get a new back bone"
if one of these conditions is our own. So we must learn how to respect our spines so as to not trigger
pain. Your Pensacola chiropractor at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center can perform
the spinal manipulation intended to ease
your specific spinal condition. Then, you'll want to think
- proper ergonomic use (how to lift, bend, twist, sit,
stand, walk, climb, reach, pull, etc.). You don't want to compromise your now-pain-relieved
spine further or again.
- nutritional needs - Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center will suggest
some nutrition ideas to improve
certain weaknesses of the spine.
- strengthening requirements - Our simple exercises don't take long but will
take you and your spine far in keeping it strong!
It is in these on-going spine problems that
we - you and your Pensacola chiropractor - must
collaborate for the best
outcome, even coming in for occasional spinal manipulation. (1)
LIFE-ACQUIRED BACK PAIN
Some of us injure our backs. We do
things that injure the seemingly healthiest
of spines: tumbling off a snowmobile or ladder or wakeboard or
lifting too much weight. You get the idea - things
we do in our normal activities of daily living may hurt
us, and we wind up with back pain. So, when we damage the spine to the
level that we trigger intervertebral disc degeneration, a herniated disc, arthritis, misaligned vertebrae, etc., we now will contend
with a spinal weakness which may become the vulnerable link
in our spinal health.
We all must nurture a strong,
well-aligned spine and utilize the spine with the respect and knowledge of
avoiding those situations
that could cause it pain.
How? You and your Pensacola chiropractor see
each other every so often.
A periodic visit to Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center for spinal alignment
and review of healthy spine maintenance is good. Continued spinal manipulation after the original
pain-relieving care is even proposed as a way to obtain
long-term benefit. (1) Truly, prevention is much better than
having to go through repeated treatment of Pensacola
back pain. It avoids pain and suffering in the
present and decreases the chance of further spine
pain in the future.
PATIENT-CENTERED BACK PAIN CARE: CHIROPRACTIC
A new report reflected on the
reality of low back pain being a major reason for disability around
the world. It’s persistent or recurrent for many people. It is
not known to just go away and
never return. Fortunately, chiropractic maintenance care or
management treatment plan has been documented as
effective in reducing the number of days of pain for some
sufferers. Patients for whom maintenance care was reported to be
of high value viewed such care as “patient-centered” while
cost, (un)availability of care, and fear of treatment concerned
others. (2) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center strives to address all of these concerns which
often go away as the back pain diminishes.
Whether you were born with it or developed it, back pain is no
fun. Alleviation of your pain is possible with
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center. Just understand that there is a logical necessity
and even benefit for periodic spinal manipulation and chiropractic care for certain spine conditions.
