You have a bout of back pain – first,
second, tenth. Do you wonder what that means going
forward? Certainly, you are! The trajectory – researchers’ name
for the course of back pain – of the Pensacola back pain
experience is individual to each, but there are issues
that may help predict that course. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center shares
a few ideas on the effect of lifestyle and
WHAT TO DO – Chiropractic
A new article’s findings make seeking chiropractic care
logical to contain the path of back pain. Patients
who undergo chiropractic care for their chronic (more
than 3 months) and acute (under a month) low back pain who
reported “much better” or “better” at one week of care were 4 to 5 times more
likely to report improvement at 1 and 3 months of care.
Particularly, acute back pain patients who reported having
more severe pain and disability in the beginning of care
recovered faster. The majority of
patients with lumbar radicular leg pain improved. Both chronic and acute back pain patients reported good outcomes. (1)
Another study of the interdisciplinary care (spine
surgeons/chiropractors in a university hospital) of chronic back pain patients reported
that almost half of the chronic low back pain patients cared with
chiropractic conservative care reported clinically relevant improvement. (2) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center
sees even greater outcomes with our particular form
of chiropractic care, Cox® Technic!
WHAT TO DO – More Chiropractic
So why stop chiropractic
care with pain relief? A study demonstrated that
low back pain patients who underwent chiropractic maintenance
care – chiropractic treatments on a regular basis unrelated to whether they
had symptoms – experienced fewer
days of low back pain that limited their activities of daily living contrasted
with getting treatment only when a new low back pain episode arose. (3) More Pensacola
chiropractic care on a regular basis seems beneficial.
WHAT TO DO – More Activity
More is not always better, but some types of
more are better, like chiropractic and activity. A low back pain patient
with a lifetime history of back pain may want to consider participating
in higher volumes of moderate to vigorous physical activity since it
was found to lower the odds of developing
severe low back pain over the next year. (4) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center knows
none of us back pain sufferers wants to hear that,
but it is the finding of a study. More intense exercise
was shown beneficial. Know too that a sedentary lifestyle –
work and/or pleasure time – moderately increases the risk
of low back pain. (5) There is a middle ground! Let us at
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center uncover that with you, the spot that inhibits
back pain and keeps you active as you want to be.
